I'm not much for jewellery. I remember Terry buying me a pair of gold earrings when we were dating...and I wasn't too excited about them. He bought the engagement ring and that was it for jewellery. He knew there was no point in buying it....I'd never wear it.
But I remember the family ring that my Grandmother once wore. All those little colours of jewels all together in a ring. I loved it.
I started looking for a family ring a couple of years ago....and I saw one on Etsy but I really didn't have a reason to splurge on a ring. And then this winter I asked Terry about getting one as we were having a special anniversary this year.
He told me I could buy whatever I wanted. And I think he was a little shocked that it was a piece of jewellery!
I absolutely love it!
It's actually 7 rings all stacked together.
I can wear it so many different ways....we have 2 December's and 2 July's in our family. I can use the thicker December band as either Terry's or Jack's. I can wear it as a mother's ring with my stone and the kids'.
Or their 5 stones without mine.
Or a couples ring......is there such a thing? I might have made that up...
Or just my own birthstone alone.
I bought it at this Etsy shop. Sheri was so excellent to work with. I picked out all my own bands and stones....she has quite a lot to choose from. I was worried about it not fitting quite right as we never actually met....I ordered it all online. But the fit is perfect!
She took a photo before she shipped it off to me....
Thank you Sheri!
And thank you to my sister-in-law, Aimy! She took all those photos of my hand....that was quite a session. I'm not a hand model!
