Jewelry and Memories

Do you have any jewelry that brings back memories when you wear it?  I think we can all think of something that we love to wear, not only because it's beautiful but also because of the wonderful memories it invokes when we see it and wear it.  For me, it is this necklace:

My husband bought me the beads.  He spent hours online looking for them.  He knew how much I love druzy focals, and my favorite color is blue.  They were an I love you gift, not for any specific occasion, and that makes them even more special to me.  Every time I look at this I think of him,  how wonderful he is and how happy he makes me.  

Recently, I was introduced to a website called Invaluable.  They are an auction site, with lots of jewelry:  vintage, costume, fine jewelry, and loose beads as well if you prefer to make your own pieces.  It only took a few minutes for me to find pieces I love and I encourage you to go and take a look.  Here are a few of the pieces I found:

This gorgeous Miriam Haskell piece is in their vintage section. I just love it.

I love this bracelet. the colors are gorgeous. 

This one is very simple and elegant.  

I could definitely do something wonderful with this cab.

And these amethysts are lovely.

I would love to hear the story behind your favorite piece of jewelry!
