"I hear you had an exciting time" News of my adventures in the Fens have travelled far and wide both in Kew and various conservation agencies. I'm pleased to say I now have replacement rings. Initially I was going to have my mum's wedding ring resized but it would have involved major alterations as the difference was 6 ring sizes. A bit of research online on gold prices made me realise it was worth more as a trade-in as it was 5g of 22ct gold. This and her engagement ring and a few bits of other jewellery I sent in part exchange to Charles Hart towards the purchase of a vintage white and yellow gold eternity ring with 7 diamonds. My engagement ring was from the 1930's so I was interested in a 'preloved' replacement. Not only did my mum's jewellery cover the cost but I received a cheque for £50 with which I bought 2 silver rings for wearing as 2nd best when out in the field, gardening, painting etc
I really didn't like being ring-less. While all this was being sorted out, Ian fished out an old wedding ring of his to wear while I was waiting. A perfect fit and I love the marks on it which complement the shape of the eternity ring. A happy outcome.
