Amanda Kloots is keeping Nick Cordero close to her heart.
Last week, Kloots, 38, took to Instagram to share a video of a ring that she had made using some of her late husband's ashes. "Something very special arrived yesterday," the widow captioned the footage of her holding the sparkler. "I'm constantly amazed by the ways you can incorporate ashes to keep your person close to you."
Elsewhere in the post, the future The Talk co-host opened up about turning some of his ashes into a family vase. "I love that Nick is with me in many places; the ocean, a beautiful vase, an urn and now on my hand," she told her followers.
The ring itself was created by her go-to jeweler designer Stephanie Gottlieb and features a sapphire stone in the center, which happens to be Cordero's birthstone. Elsewhere on the piece, his initials are inscribed on the inside of the ring, which Kloots revealed she plans to pass down onto her son, Elvis Eduardo, when he's older. "Nick went to Stephanie for all my jewelry, he knew I loved her designs," she continued. "My wedding and engagement ring are from her so this ring is very special to me."
As we reported, Kloots spent much of 2020 intensely supporting the Broadway star as he endured a months-long battle with COVID-19. He eventually passed away in July at the age of 41.
