First, old, on the left: this is a topaz ring that belonged to my great-great-aunt. It’s simple, but it’s my birthstone, and something that’s been in the Gray Wolf family for a long time. Even though I have baby hands, it crazily fit and I’ve been wearing it ever since.
Then, my borrowed and blue: my mom sewed my dad’s wedding ring to a blue pin she made that I’ll be able to attach to my wedding dress (which will be my something new). If you’ll recall, my father passed away a few years ago, and I knew I wanted to incorporate something from him into my wedding attire; I thought I’d string his wedding ring onto a necklace or bracelet or something, but I love this so much more because my mom made it.
Thanks, Mom—these are amazing.
