15 Photos Proving That When You Take Good Care of Things, They Last Forever

Be it a friendship of over 90 years, a century-old ring, or a vintage dress that has been worn through several generations, when you value something, it stays with you through the rest of time. The more effort and care you put into things, the longer they last.

Bright Side has collected some photos to prove that caring about something is the key to making it last forever.
