A Mother's Ring

My mom got this ring for Mother's Day probably about 10 years ago.  She wears it on the same finger as her wedding and engagement rings.  I've always admired it.

It has 4 stones - the birthstones of my mom, dad, sister, and me.  (Alexandrite, Rose Zircon, Peridot, and Amythest, if you're curious.)  Her and Dad's stones are in the middle, and my sister's and mine are on the outside.

My mom said she should add 3 stones for her grandchildren, but I'm trying to convince her to get a separate grandmother's ring to wear on her other hand.  Otherwise, it will get to the point you can't see all the stones!

I probably won't get one of these until I know my family is mostly complete, which won't probably be for another 10 years.  But for a Valentine's Day/push present to myself this year, I found a necklace with baby Cora's Garnet birthstone.

From 1saleaday.com, so it was not expensive at all!
I love to wear it, but I can't do it too often because now she loves to pull on it a lot.  (I'm currently looking for a nursing necklace, and my birthday is coming up--hint hint to whomever.)

I sometimes wonder what my full mother's ring will look like.  I hope I don't have too many April babies because those diamonds might get expensive!


  1. My grandma had a ring with the birthstones of all 8 of her kids that she wore all the time. I used to play with it all the time when I was a kid. I used to ask her for it too and she would tell me no. She did however promise me that I could have it when she died. When she passed away two years ago, I got the ring, which I wore for a little while but lost one. Thankfully we found it but I now have it on a chain and have it someplace where I see it everyday. It always makes me smile when I see it. I love the birthstone rings!

  2. I've always wanted a necklace with Millie's initial. I love those kinds of things. :)
