I’ve been wanting to talk to you about these rings that matter in my life for some time now.
When it comes to jewels, and by that I mean real precious jewels, I don’t have a lot of them, even if now I consider my designer pieces (by Charlotte Martyr for example) to be exceptional pieces.
So there’s five of these rings, some of them I wear every day, some others I don’t.
The silver ring with the zirconias, actually they are little slivers but the setting makes them look bigger. I’ve had this ring since I was 20 years old, it has been my greatest lucky charm. I have never parted with it, not a day went by that I wasn’t wearing it on my right middle finger.
Then this ring got replaced by a promise, the promise of love, I don’t wear a wedding ring but this Cartier “Love” ring is there every day to remind me of it.
Another love, my baby Lino.
I had this customized gold ring made at Thea by Emilie Duchene. At first, I wanted to get a tattoo but I’m still not set on the place, the font, the size, so I wear this ring every day, I never take it off.
When my little Lino isn’t near me, I just need to lower my eyes to see his eyes, to hear his laughter in my head. Wherever I am, the love of my little angel carries me off and on. I also have this romantic idea that some day I will pass it on to Lino who will then pass it on to the love of his life…
Love is also this ring that my father gave my mother when he was 20, with his first pay check, his first contract. It’s an aquamarine on a gold setting, typical of the 60’s. I rarely wear this ring because I’m afraid I’ll lose it. I think I wouldn’t be able to get over it if it happened.
It sleeps every night in the jewelry box next to my bed. I can feel its strength. What this ring represents is even more important now that I’ve lost both of my parents. I feel a little less like an orphan this way.
Finally, the last ring was given to me by Bulgari as a thank you present for the blog. On the occasion of the big retrospective of the brand at the Grand Palais, I had written a post because I was fascinated by the history of this jeweler. Bulgari then invited me in a store to give me a tour, and at the end, in a small salon, I got to choose a ring.
I will remember this my whole life because it’s the biggest gift I’ve ever gotten through the blog. I didn’t become a blogger to be showered wih gifts even if, of course, it happens a lot. Eight years ago, none of this existed, and I have always kept this thought in my mind, the same editorial policy. Even if I’m much less spoiled than most of my collegues (but that’s a different story) I’m already so lucky and every day I think about how big this blog has become over the years and that never would I have imagined it when I first started. I also keep in mind that it could end tomorrow. This ring is kind of a symbol to me, something I earned on my own just with my patience.
There you go, you now know a little more about these rings that really matter in my life.
