My dad gave my mom this Martha Richter amethyst ring, and she passed it along to me a few years ago. I rarely take it off, except to weed. As Mom said, "You'd hate to lose that stone in the dirt!"
If you look closely, you'll see that her words may have been prophetic. Notice something missing?
I was on the bus yesterday, holding onto a post and noticed a little wiggle in the stone. Oh my. One of the prongs has broken off. No idea when or where that happened!
I quickly put the ring in my pocket and thanked my lucky stars the other prongs were tight enough to keep the stone in long enough for me to notice.
I'll see if Ms. Richter can repair the ring, or I'll have to find someone local. Meanwhile, my finger feels naked!
