Grandma's antique jewelry
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 12-05-08 , 12:34 AM


Our family's passion for jewellery goes back to several generations. Grandma had such a huge collection, which she passed to my mother and my two aunts. Mom keeps using some of these antiques. She has, however, given two of the pieces to my sister and me. Here's the pics of what I got: it's a set of pearls, diamonds and rubies. Very sparkly!!! My sister got a pair of emerald earrings.

This set is from 1948. Signed on the inner part of the pendant's bezel. I tried hard, but I couldn't get a clear shot of the year

If you like antiques, enjoy!!

Very pretty set! I especially love the diamonds & rubies around the pearls. That's nice you have something so special to remember her by too.

Jewelry Through Generations

My family's views are very similar to what you had posted about the significance of jewelry and the traditions of passing down jewelry through family generations. On my 21st birthday my grandmother presented me with a gold ring that was once her mother's. My grandmother had also received this ring on her 21st birthday. Since I was just a small child, I have always been infatuated with this piece of jewelry, and begged my grandmother to let me wear it every time I saw her wearing it. I will hold it close to my heart always, until I have a granddaughter of my own one day to pass it on to.



It is really amazing how stories can prove how even a small piece of jewelry can hold so much history and symbolic meaning. I enjoy reading about people who have a personal story to tell about a particular piece of jewelry; I think it really gives jewelry a unique purpose.

Best,

MelC
