My Diamond Story

You know what they say about diamonds..
Jewelry was one way my mom would reward us for our achievements and milestones in life.
Growing up, jewelry was something my mom handed down to my sisters and I with a strong message — you only get a piece if you have accomplished something worth rewarding. As early as then (until now), we never saw jewelry for its monetary worth but more for its sentimental value – that we’ve done something worth our mom’s trust and merit. My very first reward was a gold ‘S’ ring that I received when I was in either 2nd or 3rd grade for being one of the academic awardees in my batch. I felt so mature at that time thinking “Wow, my mom actually trusts that I won’t lose this piece of jewelry!” It wasn’t even the bank-breaking kind of jewelry, take note. I guess it really was more of the thought of receiving a “non-kiddie” reward (a.k.a felt or 3D boing-boing stickers as I was a huge sticker collector then) that stuck with us and further motivated us.
Recently picked up a ring from My Diamond to replace my original wedding ring. The one I picked up has 5 diamonds spaced in between a solid white gold band – better for everyday wear. My Diamond actually has quite a nice selection of wedding bands and engagement rings to choose from! I had a hard time deciding which to get.
When I got married, my mom handed me down one of her half-eternity diamond rings. Probably to always remind me of our mother-daughter bond even if I’ve my own family already. When I have tough “mommy” days, like crying in the bathroom asking myself how to deal with Selene’s tantrums without mindlessly raising a spoiled brat (yes, I worry about those things), seeing the ring my mom gave me immediately serves as an instant pick-me-upper. Kind of like a “hey darling, if I got through life with three of you stubborn girls, you’ll get through this for sure“.
So while jewelry means a lot to me – it’s not collecting it or owning the most precious items that I am after. It’s the far more valuable treasure of being able to remember, to feel and to celebrate those little life moments while preserving them in a tangible, little ornament that you can wear with you wherever you go. Something which I will pass on to my daughter too as she grows up – along with the values and morals I wish for her to uphold as well.
My Diamond is holding a June promotion – up to 40% off on selected wedding rings and engagement rings. I got this ring at My Diamond Shangri-la Plaza.
This beautiful ring I picked up at My Diamond Shangri-la is composed of 5 small diamonds set on a semi-thick white gold band. I love that it stands out without looking too extravagant that I can wear it everyday in place of my wedding ring (the thicker half-eternity ring above). My Diamond offers high-quality diamond jewelry starting at Php20,000 with assured authenticity from the Gemological Institute of America as well as top-tier cut, clarity, color, carat and certification. If you’re looking to buy your first heirloom piece or maybe even just a wedding band or an engagement ring, I highly recommend checking out My Diamond.

    I’ve only been catching up with reading your posts, this one made me smile esp the bit on collecting stickers! I too used to collect stickers (mostly Sanrio ones)! 🙂 I also see other similarities like crying about your kid’s tantrums (and how to deal with them without giving in to your kid!) and seeing the sentimental value in jewellery rather than the monetary one. 🙂

      Hi Joane!! Nice to hear from you again! 🙂 Yesss, I loved collecting stickers then. For me though, mostly Lisa Frank stickers and those plushy ones, felt ones, etc. Tickles was such a haven for me, then. Haha! So glad I’m not the only one who feels the same about these things – overthinking tantrums esp! Haha! Hope you’ve been doing well 🙂
