I have always loved my Nannas rings. she wears them everywhere and I never questioned her on why; I just always associated her with rings and they just became part of her. it wasn't until recently that she revealed to me that she has been engaged three times before she met my grandad! two of the rings she still wears to this day simply because she thinks they are pretty, the third she sent back to the man in the post! When I asked her why she ended the engagements she told me the story of how when they would go to war, she would get bored and go out dancing and meet someone better !!
