Romance


My parents were married for almost 40 years before my mother passed away in 2005. Early in their marriage my father had this necklace made for my mom, a globe with a small ruby chip on India - where they met. Just like this necklace, I wear this when I want to feel close to my mom or need some extra luck to get me through the day.

Jacket: ? via Burlington Coat Factory
Blouse: Old Navy
Necklace: mom

so lovely. I like the story behind it. I am wearing my mom's things ever so often too since she passed away last month. That's a most beautiful necklace in the world, priceless!
