    Jewelry has such personal meeting to each one of us.  Perhaps you most treasured piece was a gift, an inherited piece or you treated yourself to something fabulous.  What is your special piece and what does it signify for you?

    My mother's wedding ring, because it's the only thing I have left of her.

    The garnet necklace from my Grandmother. We share the same birth month and when she passed away, my mother gave it to me.

    Are you sure you aren't a Jewel Thief just checking out our Loot? hmm

    Because Shoes with LCD lights are pretty valuable in some neighborhoods you know! smile

    For me it's my wedding ring set because they remind me of that special day. Especially when I am away from my hubby. It makes me feel close to him.

    I was once engaged and the ring is expensive. I tried to give it back to him but he won't accept it. It is still here, although when I look at it, I smile and remember the feeling that was. My grandmama game me a vintage ring and it is beautiful.

      prettydarkhorse, keep the expensive ring and enjoy it.  You might just want to take the stone out and have it reset or put in a necklace.  Your story reminds me of when one of my ex-husbands actually had the nerve to ask for my wedding ring back!   Ironically, it's not as if he even bought it on his own.  We both went to pickout the rings together and I paid for half of the set.  What kind of man asks you to return your wedding ring?  Well, one I'm no longer with obviously.  big_smile

        Thanks for the advice disturbia, and your experience is telling. Good that you're not with him anymore.

    I have a locket that my mother gave me when I was 16--it was from my dad who had died when I was 8.  I also have a necklace and braclet that my grandson gave me.  He bought it from a local jewelry maker and negioated the price to what he had which was about $7.85 (smile).  It is obviously worth more than that and because the lady knew his other grandmother she cut him quite a deal.  I treasure both for very obvious reasons.

    My wedding ring matches my husbands.  I have two sapphires and one center - he has one and two diamonds.  One of his diamonds is from his father's ring.

    Jewelry is wonderful - the glitz, the glamor and most importantly the memories.

    I don't wear any. No watch, no ring, nothing. What a waste of money!

    I wear several different watches from time to time. However, my favorite is a simple inexpensive black faced watch with gold trim which my dad wore before he passed almost 16 years ago. I treasure it because it keeps me connected to him mentally and spiritually.

    Mine is my wedding ring, because my husband gave it to me and it shows that I'm taken. I would freak out so bad if I lost it.

    I love victorian style chokers, and this one is extremely special to me as I made it myself and absolutely love the colour. It took me ages to make but it was worth it.

      That's beautiful! You're very skilled at making jewellery, clearly. smile Have you considered writing a hub about how to make something like that choker?
