I just wanted to share this with you.

I lost DH recently, and he wasn't on this planet for long enough. I had our wedding rings melted into one ring, and some of his ashes encased in a glass bead, set into the ring.

The ashes sparkle like little stars, and I was reminded of when a wise and compassionate MNer (you know who you are) told me we are all made of Star Stuff. And this proves it.

It is beautiful and unique, just like the love you shared for each other. I am so sorry for your loss. I have tiny feet as a ring to remember the baby girl I lost. I got so upset when it started to become scratched but now I love it even more with the scratches. flowers I hope it brings you peace.

Thank you Brie.

I felt very naked for the couple of months without a ring on my finger, and DH's on a chain around my neck. And this coming from somebody who wasn't arsed about marriage until I met DH.

The jeweller even etched DH's fingerprint onto the shank of the ring.

I'm beginning to come to terms with the loss of my beautiful DH.

It's a beautiful ring. I'm so sorry you lost him.

I'm so sorry about your baby girl, Badgers.

It is a comforting thing to have. The jeweller who made my piece also made baby feet memorials, and I remember feeling how sad it must be to lose somebody so young. x
