I’m outing my partner Shawn for not being the most romantic person ever. Don’t be mad babe. I’m about to prove myself wrong anyway…

I’d been spying on this Mahlia Collection ring for awhile, they don’t often have couture pieces for men, well that a man could pull off…

Anyway, I was that kid that always played with my grandmother’s jewelry and sometimes I like to browse the website just because it’s so beautiful. So there is this ring, the Daedalus ring, and it features the Minotaur. A dual character from greek mythology, often misunderstood… really a very poignant story and my sign is Sagittarius, also duel… and I feel misunderstood… lol. Oh, and it’s carved in German bloodstone and I have German heritage. Anyway, so it means something to me. I was considering buying it for myself, but this would be a significant investment for me, but I’m a little obsessed with it and to explain more of the story - my grandfather had a ring, basically a part of his hand, he always wore it. Beautiful Indian star sapphire, sky blue, perfect… that he picked up during World War II, and I always admired that ring and how it was a part of his character… As I grew up it was always in the back of my mind, finding “The” ring. When he passed, my grandmother took it off his finger and put it on my uncles, as she should have. Now, i’m the oldest grandchild by eleven years and my grandfather died young, but again, as it should be, the ring went from my uncle to his son. I was only a little jealous because although for my cousin that ring was about his Dad he didn’t have the kind of relationship I did with my grandfather because he was too young… but for me that ring was and is about my grandfather. Life goes on… back to the Daedalus… Now you understand a little more why having it became so significant. Anyway, in the end I felt that the better lesson for me was to not purchase it and spend that money more responsibly, but then a couple months later I came out of our bedroom to spy a box sitting on an end table in the living room, a box I recognized very well… I couldn’t even open it. I was too upset. I knew exactly what it was and was in disbelief… Maybe Shawn is more romantic than I give him credit for… SO, now it’s mine and it is admired by everyone who sees me wear it. If i have it on I get questions… every time. I have my ring. And that, if you were wondering, is the significance of Mahlia Collection jewelry.
