When Beth Bernsteins mother unexpectedly passed away, Beths life was forever changed, as she knew that shed lost not only her best friend, but also a big part of herself. In this heartwarming and moving memoir, Beth learns how to link together the platinum memories of the jewelry handed down to her by the woman who taught her how to love, overcome obstacles, and (most important) accessorize.
As a young girl, Beth learned that not all engagements came with a ring. The unconventional engagement watch Beths father gave her mother, her moms postdivorce transformation from wearing Jackie O pearls to donning love beads--each piece of jewelry represents an intimate memory, a reminder to rise above lifes challenges and enjoy its triumphs. And there are also Beths own experiences with rocky romances, of the too many engagement rings she fell in love with and the too few men who could commit. She tells the story of these relationships with sparkles of hilarity and glimmers of hope, conjuring up lost keepsakes and fiery moments--until she realizes that the brightest gems are the ones you give yourself, and finds freedom she never thought possible.
