Custom Made


Whilst on the topic of jewellery last night we also mentioned about custom made ones.┬áThat reminded me of a really special one I had….

My grandma once put her jade ear-rings together with a simple diamond and got them re-set into a lovely ring. She gave it to me for my sixteenth birthday. Alas, I didn’t appreciate it until it was stolen during a burglary at our home in London.

Sometimes I still think about re-creating that ring. I am told that some places such as salt lake city jewelers would do special designs and settings for me for a reasonable cost. Maybe I should consult my aunt who lives there and is due for a visit early next year. It won’r reach in time for Christmas but it might just be in time for the Chinese Lunar Year!
