At So Me, we’re always wondering what’s in your jewelry box. That’s because we love hearing the stories, memories, and special times that go along with every piece you treasure. Hearing these stories from all of you is a big part of our WHY.
As part of our Diamond Giveaway, we asked that our followers tell us about their favorite pieces of jewelry and why they mean so much. We received so many beautiful entries and loved reading each and every one of them. But, ultimately, we chose @chersperger as our winner! She received a pair of 14K gold diamond stud earrings. Read on to hear the story of her cherished claddagh ring:
My most cherished piece of jewelry is my diamond & emerald claddagh ring that my dad brought back from his 1st and only trip to Ireland. He is so proud of our Irish heritage. Naming me Colleen has given me a great application for the Irish as well. The trip he took was 4 months after my mom passed away in 1998. We all encouraged him to go and he was so glad he did. He brought all 4 of his daughters Kathleen, Colleen, Maureen & Arleen ( yep , those are our names) the same ring. He is not well these days but every time I visit him in the assisted living facility, he comments on how happy he is that I wear it all of the time.
Congratulations to our winner and a big thanks to everyone who submitted an entry!
