This was my Grandmother's until my last birthday.
She gifted it to me to enjoy now, rather than - later.
She is 88 now, and this ring had been hers since the second world war.Whilst my "Pa" was away, fighting in WW2, they became engaged and he had some of his pay deducted each week and sent home to my Grandmother to buy an engagement ring.
Not long after she bought it, one of his best mates' had his head blown off.
He couldn't stand my Grandmother waiting for someone who may never come home, so he broke off the engagement.
I was a blubbering mess when I opened her present.
It is one of the most special gifts I have received.
Do you have a special story about a special gift?
