“A story in the making for 50 years,” Kylie captioned the heartwarming post.

“In the 1970s, my father gave my mother a sapphire. A Loose Stone – from (NSW Town) Inverell.

“It sat wrapped up in a small brown envelope in Mom’s drawer for decades.

“I recently asked her why. She said: “Well, we’re not the kind of people who get jewelry made. And there were always other priorities, I think.

Kylie said she’s sure those “other priorities” are her and her sister and “all the things that young girls need and want.”

“And mum and dad never put themselves first,” she said.

Kylie went on to explain that the family’s thoughts turned to sapphire following the recent death of her father.

“Mum said Dad always loved her (sapphires) and really wanted Mum to have a sapphire engagement ring,” she wrote.

“That was in 1963!

“We thought it was time to do something.

“Our eternal thanks to @houseofkdor for turning this little rock into something big for our family.”

Kylie then poignantly added, “We just wish Dad was here to see it too.”

Kylie’s father Ron died in August 2021 at the age of 91.

Announcing the loss, she wrote at the time: “Our beloved father… A beloved husband to my mother for 57 years and a grandpa to four grandchildren who adored him.

“We are heartbroken but grateful,” she added.

“You’ve taken care of us all for so long.

“Ron Mills 8/10/1930 – 8/31/2021.”
