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 :)
