March 6: An Heirloom

I've been wearing Aunt Bess's initial ring for a while.  My mother wore it too, if I remember correctly.  It is quite nicely carved, with two tiny rubies or garnets.  The inscription: EC also looks a lot like a B when turned upside down.  That worked for Mom either way.  She was born Mary Elizabeth Coleman, named after her Aunt Bess, but she was always called Betty. I like the continuity of wearing a piece of jewelry for the third generation.
