|It is rare these days to come into contact with someone who opens their heart and just wants to give with no strings attached.
Yesterday afternoon I received an email from the lovely Don Wright from Poulsen Robertson Jewellers in Umhlanga Ridge.
Don had heard I was going to be a mom in a few weeks time and wanted to spoil me with an eternity ring to mark the special occasion of Cooper's birth. I squealed with delight and at 11am this morning I made my merry way to Shop 2 Protea Hotel Palm Boulevard.
I was met by Don in the crisp showroom and taken to a table where a tray of shinny rings winked kindly at me. I was like a kid in a candy store and a overwhelmed kid at that. I am a Cancerian and battle to choose off a menu let alone choosing a ring of love and eternity!
While chatting about the World Cup, water retention and life I showed Don my wedding ring, a beautiful set of 3 silver bands that fit into each other complete with an off set onyx and Perspex band.
Don then slipped into the back and reappeared with a ring that Sally Spectra (yip of Bold and The Beautiful fame) would have to kill me for. It is the most OUT OF THIS WORLD onyx and diamond ring set in palladium. The onyx was hand picked, sourced in Thailand then cut and polished into a tapered domed ring surrounded by diamonds.
"This ring has been waiting for the right person and if you like it I would like to give it to you."
(!) I was speechless (rare).
Not only was this one of the most gorgeous pieces of hand crafted art I had ever seen but the gesture of just wanting to give at any cost was the most overwhelming feeling.
Don said he had made it a while back and it was waiting for the 'right person'.
I left feeling like the luckiest girl in the world. It is such a wonderful feeling that my child is going to be born into a world where there is so much love present and that people like Don do exist.
