Melissa Magsaysay, Multi-Media Journalist and Brand Consultant — Vintage Initial Ring Purchased by Her Mother circa 1970.
“I’ve worn this ring from the moment my mother gave it to me almost 20 years ago. It was a ring she had made for herself (she’s an “M” too) to celebrate getting her first job (at a bank) right out of college.
Not only do I love the unique design and mixed metals, it always brings to mind my mom feeling like an independent woman ready to start an exciting career! Never mind that she spent her entire first paycheck, and then some, on jewelry, it was a proud moment for her and has been a wonderful accessory to me for years. I wear it on my right hand and never take it off or swap it out. Now, with a child of my own, whose name also starts with an “M”, the ring has taken on even more meaning and will hopefully continue to do so for generations to come.”
