Adorable 6-Year-Old Kid Buys Mom a Gold Ring with His Birthday Money

He’s just 6 years old but one boy already knows how to make his mom feel appreciated! Instead of buying a toy for himself, he used his birthday money to buy a gold ring for his mother. Wow.

Boy Uses Birthday Money to Buy Gold Ring for Mom

Kids love toys and would, more often than not, ask their parents to buy them toys if someone gives them money. This applies to most kids, but one boy from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah in Malaysia is different from all the others.

At just 6 years old, this boy already knows how to make his mother feel appreciated when he used his birthday money to buy her a gold ring.

A boy named Afiq Edison received money for his birthday. The following day, while he and his brother were getting a haircut, he noticed that there’s a jewelry shop in front of the barber shop. He told his dad that he wants to buy a ring for his mother, Sumarnie Edison!

He received RM5 ($1.22) for his birthday but had some other money he saved from his gifts. Afiq’s dad was quite happy to see him choosing a gift for his mother. So, he told the kid to pick one that’s within their budget of RM300 ($73.50).

After much deliberation, the kid finally picked one that costs RM260 ($63.50). His dad helped pay the RM70 ($17). He sent Sumarnie some photos of their ‘secret’ trip as Afiq picked her surprise gift – but told her to pretend she doesn’t know about it. This boy is really so sweet!

Happy with the boy’s gift, Sumarnie shared the pictures on her Facebook account and proudly wrote, “Mummy is moved and proud of you, Afiq.”

What the Best Gold Karat for Jewelry?

Gold that’s 24 karat (24k) is made of pure gold but isn’t ideal as jewelry because it is soft. Jewelry pieces that are 18k are the most common because these look closer in color to the 24k but are also quite sturdy. These could handle daily wear and tear; that’s why this is the perfect karat, particularly for wedding rings.

However, 14k jewelry are also common especially because these come much cheaper and more affordable. Its strength is also perfect for any type of jewelry.
