I was doing this set for the diamond contest, because I like diamonds. Somehow it morphed into remembering my mother and Colin's mother...... When we got married, he had bought me a beautiful diamond solitaire but my plain gold wedding band was his mother's. She had died the year before and someone it seemed right to use it. When we were on our honeymoon in London Colin bought me a lovely ropelike gold band to wear with it. Fifteen years later he bought me an eternity ring. So that is how I wear my diamonds - in my rings. Anyway, eventually my own mother passed away and while everyone argued over what to do with her diamonds all I wanted was her original platinum band. It is now 82 years old. Originally it had forget-me-knots around it but they are long worn off. Still, it makes me feel close to her to wear this. She never cared much for her diamonds. To her, this simple band was her only wedding ring. The only one that mattered. For that it matters to me. One day each of my girls will have a ring from one of their grandmothers and I will be left with my eternity band and rope gold band. And the love of our mothers will go on through our daughters. Can you tell I have a sentimental streak? LOL. Anyway, I don't have a lot of diamonds - just my rings and some tiny diamonds around tiny sapphires for my ears and in a necklace and two diamond and sapphire bracelets - also tiny. And also worn almost all the time. I will wear my diamonds as I always have - every day, everywhere, doing everything that I do. And I will remember the husband, parents, in-laws, who all had a part in me enjoying them.
