Sapphire wedding ring

My significant cultural object is my grandmother’s wedding ring. It is made from gold and has a blue sapphire in the centre. Two diamonds frame the sapphire on either side. It was given to her in 1954 by my grandfather.

It is really special to my family because it was my grandmother’s and she died before I was born so I never knew her. It is through this jewellery that I can remember my grandmother.
