So it was real, the break-up was official and yes we were getting a DIVORCE...
I had many people ask me "what are you going to do with the rings? And the jewellery he bought you over the years".
I said I’ll keep them, keep wearing them. I like them. Ok so the wedding ring came off and it will go to my daughter. But I liked the other rings, watch, necklace, earrings…
But over the months, I slowly decided to take them off and purchase new pieces
While travelling to Italy I made a decision to purchase a DIVORCE ring. A ring I can say this is for me, not from him, the marriage is over! I was telling a dear friend of mine and she made the comment, DIVORCE ring sounds so negative. This is a new chapter in your life, it should be called something else, more positive.
She was right. While I was in Florence searching for the right ring, I realised it needed to be a COMMITMENT ring. This ring was a COMMITMENT to myself. A COMMITMENT to the new path ahead, a reminder to be true to me. Once I realised this ring was indeed a positive symbol, I found it.
Handmade rose gold with diamonds all round. It was perfect.
So I was satisfied. I would look at this ring constantly and it would remind me of how far I had already come after my break-up and the realisation no one defines who I am and no-one will.
This ring is a symbol of love, joy, hope and the future. The commitment to my dreams, my goals, the love for this life.
Each day I wear this ring, I love myself a little more. The days I feel flat I look at this ring and it reminds me to keep going.
Having this ring was the push I needed to move in the right direction and I have been ever since.
So have you purchased a COMMITMENT ring for yourself?
A COMMITMENT ring could be any kind of ring. But choose this ring for the right reason. It’s a positive statement to you personally. This ring is a COMMITMENT to you and only you. It does not relate to the past or anyone in your life except you.
Live with love always
