This ring is a cultural tradition. It was my grandmother's and she passed it down to her daughter, which is my mom.  She had told my mom when you have daughters I want you to pass it on to them. The ring was so beautiful it was like a rose gold with silver on it as well very simple but gorgeous at the same time something that would describe my grandma perfectly.  My  mom wound up having two daughters my sister and I.  Since my sister was her first daughter she gave it to her and told her if you have a little sister i want you to pass it onto her. So, then when I was born I got passed the ring and I was told when I get older and have a family of my own to pass it on to my daughter. The ring means so much to me because it was my grandmother’s ring and then she passed away so I cherish it.
