Sadly we never found my ring which meant a shopping trip to find a replacement. Not content with any old ring, I decided to drag the boy to Manchester Craft and Design Centre to have a look at all the handmade independent jewellery boutiques. We went to pretty much all of the little shops in the centre trying to find a replacement simple silver ring, but a lot of the shops were a bit too crafty for my liking... We found a shop on the top floor called Divinity which had plenty of perfectly simple jewellery, designed by Deborah Zeldin O'Neill. I picked out one of her lunar stackable rings, it was the perfect fit and the imperfections make it all the more perfect. I don't know if I'll be wearing it for the next 10 years, but it's a good start!
If any of you happen to find yourself in Manchester, I'd fully recommend a visit to the Craft and Design centre in the Northern Quarter, it's full of cute, handmade pieces and a lovely cafe!
Hope you all had a lovely long weekend!
