Rings

Rings can have so many different meanings. Symbols of love to some, symbols of power to others. Either way they can be amazingly beautiful and elegant. Sometimes the simplest of rings will convey so much.

Take these three rings for instance.  The Garnet ring I bought in Tokyo many years ago and it reminds me of my travels there.  The gold buckle ring is an antique and symbolizes marriage.  The gold coral rose was my grandmother's and brings pleasant memories of her.

These three are wedding and engagement rings from the 1950's.
 

I never used to like Turquoise however  I absolutely love it now. These three all belonged to my Grandmother. She'd be pleased to know that I wear them all the time.
