When I first saw a mother's birthstone ring, which has all the birthstones of her children, I though it was a lovely idea. But then something went wrong, my three boys were born in months with ugly birthstones! How unfair is that? This is what my ring would look like.
Nathan was born in August. Its birthstone is the peridot. Now green is my favorite color, but not lime green.
Travis and Marcus were both born in November. Its birthstone is the yellow topaz. The colors of the two different stones go well together, but I like to wear cool colors. The asymmetrical look of two identical stones next to each other also bugs me.
Oh, if only I had stayed pregnant with Nathan for 3 more days, and if only Travis had not been 6 weeks early, and if only Marcus had not been 4 weeks early. My ring could have look like this.
A sapphire and two blue topazes look lovely together. I still got the asymmetrical thing going on, but I could have lived with that.
Does anyone else have this terrible problem? Here I go again being vain and shallow, I know.
