In few families, it is customary even in today’s time to wear something which is worn by our ancestors. It is a symbol of blessings and forwarded generation after generation within the family to intact family’s possession. Isn’t it great that we are gifted an ornament worn by our great grandmothers and still the grace of it are so enchanting and exquisite.
I believe, a girl admires her mother’s wedding dress way back when she was in her teens. She would wear her dress and walk recklessly and are filled with delight that someday she will wear the same attire or buy a dress resembling that. When she is an adult and there comes a surprise gift from her parents to wear the vintage ring on her marriage. It is so emotional.
