My three true ‘bling’ rings survive my left hands, announcing my marital status around the world. In a couple of years, they’re going to have had the experience for fifty years… suppose!
My wedding band is slim with three small diamonds occur small white-colored gold gemstone shapes around the gold band. I’d planned a large, plain gold band, until I started trying some on. No… way too heavy in my lengthy slim fingers. In some way, this slimmest of wedding rings, using its own little bit of ‘bling’ was the right match in my solitaire gemstone diamond engagement ring using its simple shoulders set with small diamonds both sides.
My eternity ring have been my Mother’s, which i inherited 34 years after our marriage. Another slim ring set with small diamonds that happily nestled in plus the ‘big brother’ (or sister?) gemstone ring – developing a perfect balance – a vibrant and glossy harmony. I really like the idea that part of my beloved Mother lives my every single day beside me, discussing victories and tragedies, and all sorts of shades of Existence among.
However this story goes towards the ‘show-stopper’ gemstone diamond engagement ring that featured inside a most unpredicted means by the very first days of Summer time, here on the retirement farm. Residing in the East of South Australia sees the majority of us well acclimatised towards the winter several weeks – but suffering heat of Summer time temps our Northern cousins would find acceptable as perfect, warm and sunshiny days. Consequently, the awesome from the evening and also the gentle breeze that creeps over the land in the ocean just 15 kms. (9 miles) away, are welcomed and loved most gratefully. On this type of night, following drinks and relax time, I’d a extended romp with this lengthy-haired German Shepherd dog, Benji – the two of us taking pleasure in a tumble and roll around around the awesome grass until bed time.
The following morning adopted the typical bleary-eyed, gradual getting out of bed routine of – nature call wash hands and quick comb through of hair make first mug of coffee switch on computer sip coffee although idly checking finger nails. Hmm-mm – that thumbnail needs attention – stretch fingers out, and… me stopped for many beats after which started to pound shateringly within my chest and unbearably noisally within my ears. I possibly could barely breathe. There is an excellent black hole where my gemstone must have been. It simply could not be true. I lightly felt the claws from the ring… there is certainly nothing cradled within them.
I checked my desk and keyboard (and upturned the laptop keyboard and shook it). I had been sure it might you need to be laying there, accidently twinkling at me. Most likely the floor? I retraced each take a step back towards the bathroom… been with them dropped out when i dried my hands? No. I painstakingly analyzed every square from the tiled floor and so the polished wooden boards in our Kitchen and diner round the kettle and also the cupboard tops. Nothing.
