(My previous post, here)
The first time I visited the jewelry shop, I was told it will take three months to receive the ring. That was in July.
Jewelry makeover shop Suzuki 鈴貴
After thought about it a while, decided to go home without making an order.
Because I was worried to leave the jewelry at the place with the person I do not know well.
Those jewels are priceless for me I can’t lose any of them.
I know it sounds silly but it’s just uneasy to do so.
As typical Japanese, I didn’t say “No, I don’t think I’ll leave these jewelry here and wait for three months”.
Instead I told the person “Suzuki-san” that I’ll think about it.
Then he suggested me, he’ll put me on the waiting list for now.
He said come back in the end of Sep, once I’m ready.
He gave me two months to consider.
That given option mitigated my concern, and I said “I will do so”.
Design ideas I got;
As referred to Suzuki-san’s past work, it’s obvious that he has a lot of experiences.
So I asked his advise for the designs, sent an email attached the image file.
He was kind enough to reply me immediately, said he’ll share his idea when I visit in Sep end.
End of summer, I went back to the shop and had a talk and left my jewelry there.
Right after I got out of the shop, I was like I have left my most important things behind.
I thought I have made a fatal mistake.
That’s one month ago.
It’s been a long month.
Those rings and necklaces have been with me on behalf of my late boyfriend for years, the absent of them made me worried and restless.
When I went there in Aug, it was a crazy hot day.
Now it’s cool or almost cold autumn 🍂.
I just purchased a thermal shirt for jogging.
Back then I was sweating all over and wearing a water-cooling shirt.
Today, I received my ring.
Two heart shaped diamonds and small pieces into one.
It’s been 20 years since my boyfriend passed away.
Thankfully from now on I can put this ring on me everyday.
You know the feeling of being with the person who gave it to you when you are wearing it.
I am being protected, and do have a sense of security.
