So I was walking down a cobbled alleyway on a mission to find a knife when I found my wedding ring. Camden Passage is a street in London’s Islington district lined with antique shops. I love the thrill of walking through there on a Saturday morning never knowing what I’m going to come across. Last week I bought a giant golden walnut-shaped nut cracker.
The knife or knives in question were a set of mother of pearl cheese knives for my friends parents 30th wedding anniversary. While we were browsing through shop windows, I spied a wishbone shaped ring surrounded by kitsch rings and bracelets. The woman in the shop said it was not the kind of thing she normally stocked in her shop, she being more interested in quirky retro treasures. I tried it on with my engagement ring and it was perfect. It seemed as though the two rings were meant to go together. I hadn’t planned to buy a ring with diamonds but its very pretty and I couldn’t resist the sparkles!
My fiancé was busy and I didn’t want to buy the ring without him seeing it and so I have left it behind until we can both go to the shop together to have a look and (hopefully) buy the ring!
