One of the things we gave her..

My late Mother-in-law loved wearing jewellery.

While she was still around, Blueberry and I gave her a ring for her birthday.

It was the best we could afford back then.. a gold-plated ring, which costed $240. The band is malleable, which allows the wearer to mould the ring to fit better.

The band of the ring fashioned like a vine.. Can you see the patterns of small leaves?

She was a peranakan and loved intricate details.. most importantly, she loved being pampered with presents. 😉

The ring is under my possession now.. I wondering if I should start wearing it on special occasions. It would be nice if I can wear something that belongs to her.. But the thought of the ring weathering fiction or scratches make me shudder.

To wear or not to wear?

Maybe, it’s best to keep it safe in my jewellery box.. some memories are too precious to lose.
