Both of these ring sets belonged to my mom; the lower set is a triplet ring that is made up of three different types of gold bands that intersect like Olympic rings, and the upper set is two silver rings that I gave her for our last Christmas together.
She loaned me the gold rings one time after a trip home so that I could take a bit of her back with me to LA. I liked the fact that I could wear something of hers while we were apart. She wore the silver rings into the hospital and, because patients aren’t allowed to wear jewelry, I started wearing them for her the moment I arrived home.
