Tell us about your favorite piece of jewelry you ever received and what it means to you?
My favorite piece of jewelry is from my grandmother. She had this beautiful gold ring which had a stone with gold flowers engraved in it and two rubies on each side. She wore it all the time. I've never seen anything like it.
My mom gave me the ring after going through my grandmother's things. My grandmother suffers from Alzheimer disease, so when I visited her wearing the ring she didn't recognize it at all . But she did point out how beautiful it was and said, "Whomever gave that to you must be a really special person." I wear it everyday .
If you could have coffee with anyone dead or alive who would it be?
My great great grandfather from China
