I love my moms jewelry.

when my grandmother died, my mother inherited a lot of her jewelry. and, she had quite an impressive jewelry collection, full of beautiful and pricey vintage pieces, bought decades ago by my grandfather. this is one of my favorites. i stole it from my mothers finger so I could wear it for a few days. shhh...don't remind her. maybe she will forget I have it. :)

There's something indescribably special and regal about jewelry that has a history. Especially when that history is a part of you. That ring is lovely.

that's one of my favorite tricks (unfortunately it rarely works). but, I hope it does for you... that ring is beautiful!

Really pretty ring! I do the same thing, my mom has so much pretty jewelry that she never wears. Half my own collection is from her at this point. Vintage jewelry, especially from family members, is my fav. kind of accessory :)
