This ring belongs to my mother. No, she didn't go buy it because of the sudden popularity of said ring. She's had it for years. My mother has always been BIG into jewelry. I personally wear the same jewelry everyday, except for earrings and necklaces. One of the things that I just love about my mother is her affinity for baubles, and I don't mean of the costume variety. She is letting me borrow this one so I can live out my royal fantasies. Plus, it's really fun to have a little piece of mom with me everyday.
