101 Things in 1001 Days: 78

I like my jewelry to mean something.  I enjoy wearing it more when it has a story.  I have a few pieces that were handed down from my grandmothers that are priceless to me.

I put "Buy myself a nice piece of jewelry" on my 101 List with the intention of buying something that I would have for a long time.  I got a signet ring.  I've been wanting one for years.  I hope to pass it on to my daughter or granddaughter some day.  Since neither of those women will exist for a while, I wanted something that would be meaningful to me now.

I bought my ring on my one year anniversary at my current job.  This is the happiest I've ever been at a job and I wanted to celebrate that.  I also am proud of my career and, for years to come, I know when I look at this ring I'll be reminded of my capabilities and what I'm able to accomplish.

Don't worry...I don't usually wear my ring on my wedding finger.  It is just dang impossible to take a picture with your left hand.

What is your favorite piece of jewelry?
