I'm fortunate enough to know a goldsmith who owns a jewelry store and she did it for me.
The cutting was a preventive measure ~ I hadn't been able to get the two rings off my finger for at least a year.
After the mastectomy my left arm and hand will swell. And that being the case, my poor ring finger would have quickly turned blue.
So now they sit, unworn, waiting for re-sizing and repair, after part of me gets re-sized and repaired.
It feels strange not wearing the wedding band I've worn for just about a quarter century, and the engagement solitaire I've worn since 1985.
I look forward to wearing them again.
