My Jewelry

I have a nice collection of fun accessories and jewelry that I really like but today I am sharing my most loved necklace that I wear almost everyday.  Each piece came to me over time and somehow ended up on the same chain. I like the way it looks and like even more that each one is special.

Starting on the left- The diamonds are my Nana's original wedding setting which she wore until her 25th wedding anniversary when my Grandpa bought her a new ring. For my 30th birthday she had it made into a necklace for me. I didn't wear it often for a couple of years because I was afraid I'd somehow lose it but I finally decided let that fear go. I figure if Nana trusts me enough to give me one of her most special pieces of jewelry, that I should trust myself with it. I really am honored to wear it and it is so pretty and I just love it :)

In the middle is my Miraculous Medal. I found it on etsy or ebay many years ago and have been wearing it since. I've had many over the course of my life but this one is by far my favorite. It's really thin (which i like) and is apparently an antique according to the seller. It says, "O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." You can read the history of it here.

Last but not least is a little necklace from Milla which she gave me about two years ago. When I opened the package she had sent and saw it, I knew it belonged on the chain with my other two beauties. I'm not sure what it symbolizes but it reminds me of the four seasons. I love how they all jingle when I walk. It reminds me of a bell on a lamb or something. I think about how maybe the kids know I'm coming because they can hear my necklace and perhaps one day when they're older they'll remember it with fondness.

Do you have any special pieces of jewelry? Please feel free to share their stories with me :)

  1. beautiful little trinkets of heart and memory. i love the idea of having one piece of jewelry that you wear so often your children associate its sounds and feel and scent and nearness with you.

  2. Those are really pretty together. For a while I was wearing several little pendants on one chain, but then they started falling off and then I broke the chain and never got around to replacing it. They were all little things tying me to an old life though so I sorta took it as a sign to move on. I can see one of your little ladies wearing these in the future :)

  3. love your necklace! i wish i lived closer so i could show you my holy medal collection. my most treasured is my Ecco Homo medal that is an antique from when my grandmother was a novice nun, but i also have a really special St. Christopher one and two really awesome keys to heaven. i have about a billion saint medals and various Our Lady medals that i switch out depending on what's happening in my life. i just got a Mystica Rosa one that i love because Mary has the 12 stars around her head and it looks really pretty. and i love the jingle, too! i usually wear two or three of my medals at a time so that i can hear it. left overs from being a belly dancer, i like to jingle when i walk.

  4. I love this collection! For years I had a St. Christopher medal that I wore whenever traveling. My special pieces the I wear a lot are: a feather from Missa, my grandmother's tiny, square cameo, the weird bird(s) that were my mom's earrings when I was little. I also have a piece of green malachite set in silver that I love.
    The little pendant I sent you is a Pennsylvania Dutch "blumettes" or "hex" star, folk art of a specific origin and they do indeed have meanings, as they were often painted on barns as decorations. You could be right about the four seasons, the renewal of everything, with the little sprouts coming up. http://www.folkart.com/education/hex/

    Thank you, I miss these kinds of posts.
