Today, I was reading on another blog, how you should be wearing a ruby (pear cut) ring, even if it is an imitation, just like Victoria Beckman. Well, I wear one everyday! It’s my engagement ring. When I was young, my dad always encouraged me to look for something that was non traditional. Not the regular diamonds, like everyone else. I fell in love with this ring, and during my lunch hours in the mall where I worked at, I would hop on down to see this ring at the jewelry store. One day, my soon to be husband, told me to stop going to the store. I kept my promise, but sent my good friend, to see if it was still there, and she told me it wasn’t!! I was then presented on bended knee with it on Dec 31, New Year’s Eve, almost 17 years ago! I love it and I still love my presenter! Interesting fact, my great grandmother wedding ring, was ruby with pearls!
A few years ago, I lost the ruby out of it!! Several days later, while on the phone, telling my sad sob story of how I lost the ruby, and my friend had lost her sapphire…I all of the sudden found it on my kitchen floor right under the curve part of my table leg (it looked like a grape seed!). What a miracle !! I also this year lost, one of the diamonds, and got it replaced.
I love the different cuts of diamonds too, that are in this ring. I went with a plain band, that is now soldered to the ring. I though, have always wondered if I wear it right. When I look at the ring, the pear shaped of the ruby is pointing down (this is the way I saw it in the store), for others if they were looking at it, it would hang down like a pear. The good news, there really isn’t a wrong or a right way, whichever way you prefer to have it on you, is the right way!! Yeah! Here is your view, but mine is the picture above!
