Day 1 | Jewellery:
Occasional pieces & family heirlooms.
Rings | These rings are my engagement ring and wedding ring. They are plain platinum bands; the engagement ring has a 1/4 carat princess cut diamond. My wedding ring hasn't left my finger since The Brainy One put it there on 14 October 2005. The Brainy One's wedding ring is also a plain platinum band.
Watch | My 40th birthday present from The Brainy One was a Cartier Tank watch with a pink pearl face. It's a simple design, but beautiful in its simplicity. I am never without it during my waking hours.
Earrings | I have 2 sets of piercings in my ear lobes, but no longer wear earrings on a regular basis. Cheap, fashion earrings make my lobes flare up with eczema. I occasionally wear silver tear drops (bought for our wedding) or silver studs in an intertwined hearts design (a birthday gift from The Brainy One).
The Occasional | I have a few pieces that come out on high days and holidays. There's my half of a diamond cluster ring left to me by my paternal grandmother (my sister has the other half). It's in severe need a good clean.
~ look closely at her finger ~I have my paternal great grandmother's 22 carat wedding ring from 1905; she had small hands. There's the white gold and diamond eternity ring Grandad J bought for my paternal grandmother.
There's a sterling silver bangle from Tiffany, which was a 35th birthday present to myself and worn at our wedding. There's a silver charm bracelet, which is quite heavy and clanks annoyingly on the desk. And there's the first piece that The Brainy One ever bought for me in 2004 ~ a three wishes pendant from Links. It's also in severe need of a good clean.
Maybe I should just clean and wear these pieces?
