It holds my heart, my hopes, this little ring.
It holds my joys, my tears, my fears.
It is an heirloom, this little ring. How auspicious now to have a ring so very like the famous Kate's, and bought not long after Diana herself wore the ring.
The Hope Diamond remains the model for this ring and for the Diana/Kate ring, AKA The Princess Diana ring.
The Hope's curse is that it brings bad luck to those who own it. Or even touch it. Probably best it is in the Smithsonian, out of harm's way, guarded by glass and guns.
Let's hope the Kate wears long this proud ring, and that no curses befall her, as they did her groom's Mother.
This little ring, a fiery blue sapphire, and a ring of *sparkly* white diamonds on gold band, holds my heart, my hopes. It encircles everything I hold dear.
A small token, thesetiny bright lights, that brighten even the darkest blue center.
Yes, that is what the ring means to me.
These tiny bright lights brighten even the darkest blue core.
