It is as sparkly and shiny just as the first time it was slipped on my grandmother's finger so many years ago. I am so happy to be it's new caretaker, and I will truly cherish it as much as she did all the years of her life...even when it was lost in the garden. Here it is laying beside my wedding rings, just to give you an idea to compare it to how 'new' it looks. Amazing. I should have done a before shot.
I can't wait to show papaw, he will be so proud to see it back to looking like the day he bought it.
Thanks Papaw and Grandmother.
I miss and love you more than words can say.
