this was a present and I was thrilled. Opening up this beautiful box (I know, that wasn't the present but such a beautiful box told me that there was something very special inside!) showed me a very unique piece of jewelry. This was bought by my husband to show me how he feels about me (not to bad after 25 years!); that I am his soul friend. I was born and live in England but this very much reminds me of my Irish heritage and culture. I know I don't have the only one in the world but I still think of it as very unique and if I ever bump into someone wearing something similar I know we will have a special bond. It is one of the most special presents I have received.
