Mom's Ring

This is my mother's ring. She loves this ring, because it reminds her of her native country. The ring was bought in Kyrgyzstan. It also has national tracery of our country. It was a gift for the mother. Jewelry from Kyrgyzstan. We brought it when we arrived in America. Mom was very pleased with this gift, but she was even more pleased to see us. Every time I see this ring it reminds me of Kyrgyzstan, about the time spent there, and about my family in Kyrgyzstan.
