    My husband bought me a teeny tiny promise ring 14 years ago when I was a sophomore in high school. It is shaped like a flower with a little diamond in the center. I haven’t worn it since we got married but I love it and I hope I can give it to my granddaughter some day.

    I’ve always loved the infinity symbol and this summer when my husband and I were in Paris we saw a lovely necklace with the infinity symbol. Bonus, it was my birthday and he was just planning to find something on the trip. I was indecisive that day though and we left without buying it. I decided that night, yes, that would be a great birthday present. When we went back the next day (our last day in town), they were closed! But their hours said they’d be open then…so we wandered around and made our way back – they were open – huzzah! It’s not elaborate or something that would really catch anyone else’s eye, but it was a fun story, and I was thrilled to find a small necklace that I’ve been wanting, with a symbol that I’ve wanted on a piece of jewelry, and have it be from my husband for a special occasion ūüôā

    A fairly new addition to my collection: a tiny, delicate gold necklace from Japan with a small cloisonne butterfly pendant at the center. It was a surprise gift from a college friend currently teaching in South Korea; we’ve stayed in touch for years and so the necklace isn’t just aesthetically beautiful, it’s one of my few pieces made more beautiful with a backstory.

    I’ve always told my husband that buying a woman jewelry is like telling her “you are beautiful and precious and you need nothing more than something as beautiful and precious is you to ornament you” (no practical gifts in our house). So that makes it hard for me to pick because jewelry that is picked intentionally for someone is so much more beautiful than stuff you pick for yourself! And I love jewelry! The most beautiful piece I have, to me, is an eight pearl ring shaped like a flower with a black jet bead center. It is a delight to look at–very unusual. It was a birthday present from my two teenage sons, and it was a surprise. So not only is it beautiful, it is extra precious to me because usually jewelry gifts come from my husband or parents.

    I have a very simple pair of pearl posts, given to me by my husband, in keeping with a family tradition of purchasing pearls on the birth of the second child!

    My grandfather went without lunch for a YEAR in 1949 to save up to buy my grandmother a diamond and sapphire necklace. She wore it every day–even with sweatpants! That’s beautiful. I’m so fortunate to have inherited this symbol of their love.

    For my graduation (master’s degree), my grandmother gave me a broach that had been her grandmother’s. ¬† It is a beautiful carved cameo with a rustic scene, set in a gold wrapping frame. ¬†I even still have the original velvet lined box! ¬†It was a special piece that my great-great-grandmother bought for herself after she successfully started a textile business in New York City. ¬†It’s beautiful – but it’s also my “power” piece. ¬†It reminds me that going for my dreams is in my blood! ¬†I love that lots of women in my family have stood tall and wore this broach. (My grandma didn’t have any girls, so it skipped a generation and came right to me.) ¬†I wear it to important talks that I’m giving. ¬†I even wore it on my wedding day!

    A little diamond bracelet that was my grandmother’s. Towards the end of her life we were going through her jewelry and I asked if I could have it and she was elated that I wanted it. It always makes me think about her and her generosity.¬†

    The plastic bead bracelet in pink, pink, and more pink, threaded on a piece of knotted black elastic, made with enormous pride by my three-year-old niece. Although it bruises my skin, I wear it every day.

    Carolyn says:

    I have a delicate gold bangle from my grandmother. It is the most beautiful aesthetically, but also in its history. She owned four, conveniently the number of granddaughters she has, and we have each been given one. They are one of the few valuables she retained through WWII, and brought to Canada with her from Germany.

    Sparrow B says:

    My son made me two bead necklaces strung on fuzzy red yarn (!!!) and every day he runs to my closet to get them for me because he wants me to wear them. And there is no vanity in his desire for me to wear them. No desire to show off his own talents or to flatter himself. They are absolute beauty to me in that they are filled with pure intention, with a palpable adoration, and with the desire to bring light and beauty to my life. He is my sunshine.

    Nothing is more beautiful than marrying the person you were meant for (and who was meant for you); my wedding band is the most beautiful piece of jewelry I wear.

    Love my engagement ring.  It is not too big nor is it too small.  It is just the right size for my finger.  Love it from the first moment I saw it.  It is me.

    A simple gold chain with tiny gold balls every few inches that belonged to my grandmother.  She wore it evey day and  when I see it sitting on my collarbone I think of it on her  and smile.

    I wear a St. Christopher’s medal (my grandma’s), a tiny silver deco cat charm (a memorial to my beloved cat) and a fancy art deco shield charm (from my sister) all on a box chain. ¬†Singularly, they are beautiful. ¬†Collectively, they are stunning. ¬†

    I have a pair of handmade calla lily earrings I wear almost every day. ¬†They were a gift from my sister from a trip we took to Asheville, NC. ¬†We live miles apart now (her in NC, me in CA) but I’m reminded of our getaway when I wear my earrings! ¬†

    A snowflake pendant. My grandmother passed away a few years ago, but for the last few years or her life she wore a snowflake pendant year-round. She didn’t care that it was seasonal, she just loved how beautiful it was and she always felt beautiful wearing it. Now when I wear my snowflake pendant I think of her and of how beautiful she was, and hope that I can live up to her legacy.

    After my grandfather passed away, I was truly honored to learn that he wanted me to have both his and my grandmother’s wedding rings. The twin golden bands, inscribed with the year of their marriage (1947), now hang on a long gold chain around my neck. This simple necklace is the most beautiful piece of jewelry I own because it represents the love shared between my grandparents and inspires me to find someone who will make me as happy as they made each other.

    My Papa Harry’s gold coin ring. He was a loving grandfather who lived a humble life. He immigrated from Russia as a toddler and told stories of the Great Depression. He lived frugally for all of his 92 years, but he saved up to buy one prized piece of jewelry: A gold coin set in a chunky gold band. I remember going to visit him in Indiana and sitting in his den, holding his hands that were puffy with age but soft and warm in spite of the brutal cold outside. He was so sweet and a bit of a jokester, with bright blue eyes (and light behind them) that made his paper thin-skin seem young again. I wish I could remember the coin’s significance, but what matters most to me is that he loved it so much.¬†

    We were probably 75 years apart in age (both he and my dad had kids late) and he died when I was 17, which is 17 years ago. But when I see that ring, which he gave to me and my sister, I think about the love he showed me, the lessons he taught me, the twinkle in his eye, and those warm, worn hands. It’s a huge size–too large for me or my sister to wear. I’ve thought about wearing it on a necklace but am scared it will break the chain. So for now, I sneak peeks at it from time to time, imagine giving it to a future son, and remember the man who wore it and who taught me about how living within your means doesn’t mean denying yourself of everything beautiful.¬†
