I would like to buy my wife something special for our anniversary. When we first got married, I gave her the ring that her grandmother wore when she was married and it was really special to her. Unfortunately, she lost it at some point along the way and we were never able to find it. I am looking for vintage jewellery at the moment because I want to get her something that is fairly similar to what she lost, and I know that nothing will ever replace the special nature of the last ring that she had, considering that it came from her grandmother and all of that. But I hope that a nice gesture like this will help to numb the pain of the lost and that it will help her to move one.
She was actually quite devastated after it happened, and I guess I can understand why, but at the same time, it seemed like perhaps a bit of an overreaction. But since I could not really be in her shoes, it is hard to say for sure. Her grandmother died a few years ago, and it could be that losing the ring really brought back some painful memories of the death.
I know that she was really quite close to her grandmother when she was growing up, and she was almost like a second mother to her. Not quite that close of a bond, as parent and child, but suffice to say they were very close. Anyway, I need to start browsing some jewellery because I would like to be able to pick out something to buy her by the end of the day today. I am not going to rush to a decision though if I am not able to find something that I think she will really like.
