It seems like we all go through periods in our life that are so special, so delicate in our hearts, that the jewelry we wear or accumulate or receive at the time suddenly takes on a special significance to us. As if the jewelry itself could preserve the memory. This must be why jewelry companies do so well around Christmases, Mother’s Days, weddings, births, and anniversaries, yes?
I’m not one who goes crazy over accessories (except for shoes — do shoes count as accessories?), and yet I have a small box positively filled with jewelry. Some of it is expensive, but most of it is on the cheaper side, and all of them are full of precious memories. I’ll never ever get rid of them, no matter how ugly or out of fashion or how poorly they match my outfits.
We all have these little stashes, don’t we? And how fascinating would it be to see what everyone’s most significant jewelry looks like?! After the jump, I’m sharing mine and asking anyone who is interested to submit a photo of their own special jewels and trinkets for a follow-up to this piece that I’ll post next week. I hope you enjoy! And please, do not hesitate to share!
What are your most treasured pieces of jewelry? I’d love it if you shared! Email a photo and brief description to natthefatrat at gmail dot com (with a link to your blog if you have one!) and I’d love to include it in a reader round up next week.
