Thirty years ago RM found MM, and knew she was “the one”. He popped the question, and then popped a second question… did she want a ring, or did it feel more important to put that money towards a downpayment on a house? The lure of homeownership was great, and MM put aside her desire for sparkly things and went for lathe and plaster (and a simple band) instead. Now, for their 30th anniversary, RM and is celebrating by finally rewarding MM’s delayed gratification. Together they have picked out a beautiful natural, unheated, cornflower blue sapphire for a splendid celebratory ring. Sapphire was the original engagement stone, by the way… it’s where the expression “true blue” comes from. Indeed! Happy anniversary to MR and MM from everyone here at Maloy’s, we wish you many more joyous years together!
