My ring

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

       The object I picked is a ring. I had two rings but one got lost, sadly. My mom gave me that ring when I was child and she originally got that ring when she was a teenager. As I was growing up, the ring I had first didn’t fit me, so I passed it on to my little sister which she was happy to receive. After that, my mom gave me a new one which fit me better (the one in the picture). These rings were my mother’s rings as a teenager in Jalisco, Mexico. She loved jewelry very much in her teenage years and has a lot of jewelry stored. When she moved to the United States, she brought jewelry with her. Ever since the day she gave me the ring, I admire jewelry very much. And I wear this ring every single day. These rings are very special to me because they were My Mother’s rings as a teenager.
