When I moved to the Netherlands I took all my mom's rings with me and kinda forgot to mention it to her. It didn't take her long to figure it out though and was OK with it. She only had one advice: "Wear them! Wear them EVERYDAY! Don't wait for special occasions!". (Exclamation points are because mom always talked with animation, ALWAYS!).
This ring is my absolute favorite. It's silver with amethyst stone. And the story goes, when my mom was 21 and just graduated the Moscow State University, she went out with her classmates to celebrate, and during the evening she went into the fashionable mall and bought herself this ring for what at that time was amount equivalent to a month's stipend (Yes, students got PAID in Russia).
Anyway, every time I wear it, and I do very often, I think of the pretty, slender, brunette long time ago who no doubt giggling and using many exclamations, along with her girlfriends went into the mall and bought herself this little present. I hope I have a daughter and I can give her this ring and tell her how I took it from my mom when I 'ran off' to the Netherlands with my Prince. :)
