This is a beautiful ring which my mom wore as her wedding ring for the last 40 years of her 66-year marriage. It was sparkly and eye-catching , and a very appropriate symbol of my parents' many, many sparkling years together.

My mom, a beautiful, sweet, and classy woman, who was raised through the Great Depression eating ketchup sandwiches, loved diamonds. To her, owning beautiful things, especially diamond jewelry, represented attaining the good life.
After five years of elder care of my parents, (I'm an only child), doing everything I had to do to get their home listed and sold, their cottage sold, their possessions sold and them settled in a retirement center, and then helping Mom care for Dad who had Parkinson's/dementia, and helping Mom through the progressive walk of her own congestive heart failure (three major surgeries and rehabs, countless hospitalizastions, four trips through the ER...), Mom finally passed to a better place where the trees drip with diamond dew, and her fingers and wrists are adorned with gems of every hue. Dad followed her there a scant nine months later.
I miss my parents deeply, and also our lifelong family cottage. My dream is to get a little place of our own on a lake, and to help make that dream come true, I am selling Mom's beautiful diamond jewelry. I know she would approve. She knows how difficult my walk with them was, and that I need a place of serenity to heal. This will be my parents' last gift to me, and I will think of them at every sunrise and sunset. I will be a little bit sad to say goodbye to these sentimental pieces, but I am keeping one diamond pendant necklace - the onw she was usually wearing in family photos - to remember how classy and stylish she always was.
