Birthstone.

I grew up hating my birthstone, the ruby. Maybe it's the whole "wanting what others have" thing, but luckily I grew out of that because now I adore it. When my grandmother passed away she left each one of her daughters and granddaughters a ring. She left me a beautiful silver ring with a large amber stone. I've only worn it a few times, and have let my mom wear it for the past few years- it's a little too big for me and I prefer gold. Then the other day I was looking at the one my grandma left my mom, and I fell in love. It's a gorgeous 14K gold ring with rubies (well, my grandpa said they are rubies, but they may be garnets- either way it's gorgeous). My mom agreed to switch with me, and I'm pretty sure my grandma wouldn't mind considering how much I love this one.

I can't wait to get it resized so I can wear it every day. Isn't it gorgeous?

  4. Bea-u-tiful! My bithstone is ruby also! Levi got me a hideous ruby necklace when we were dating and I've still never worn it. I've always been envious of the other stones, but I think I'm warming up to mine!

    My great grandmother left me a beautiful pearl bracelet. But shh..don't tell hannah.

  11. that IS beautiful! I've always hated my birthstone. It's diamond, and I was always jealous that I had a plain, clear birthstone and everyone else had beautiful different colored birthstones.
