Wedding Ring


My object is an old wedding ring. The ring is made out of gold with a big diamond in the center. The ring is from Mexico, it was onced used as my grandma's wedding ring. My grandma wanted my aunt to have it for her wedding so she gave it to her. Unfortunately my aunts marriage didn't last and they soon got a divorce. My aunt didn't want anything to do with it once she got a divorced so she gave it to my mother. My grandma had also just passed away, my aunt wanted my mother to have something in her memory. At that time my aunt decided to give it to my mother in memory of my grandma. This ring is special to me because it also reminds me of my grandma. I've only met my grandma a couple of times so it's nice having something that can remind me of her.
