    My favorite piece of jewelry is a ring my father gave to me on my 18th birthday. It’s a grey and white two pearl ring that was my grandmother’s from her father.

    My favorite piece is my wedding ring. It’s a simple flat pipe cut brushed yellow gold band. Classic. Definitely a piece I would love to pass down to generations to come.

    I have a silver dove on a chair that I get the most compliments on. The silver color is wearing off, but the design is so simple and lovely I would give anything to find another one like it

    I don’t cycle my jewelry very often, so when I find a piece I love, I tend to stick with it for awhile. My favorite necklace has a history, starting with a crystal cross I bought when I was a senior in high school, on a trip to Washington DC on the Catholic University Campus (where I ended up attending college the following year). The cross reminds me of being a young person full of ambition, as well as a tangible reminder of my faith that I find myself touching throughout the day. That same trip, I bought a cheap silver chain to wear it on. Years later, after I met my future-husband, our friends’ dog managed to break that cheap chain and I was at a loss for what to do with my charm. A few weeks after that, my husband’s first birthday present to me ever was a simple white-gold chain to wear with my cross. The chain reminds me of being more grown-up and having a partner who recognizes my needs and reminds me to do what I can to make him happy as well. When I was planning what to wear on our wedding day years after that, I toyed with the thought of getting a sparkly fancy necklace, figuring it was one of the times I could justify a splurge like that. About 10 seconds after that consideration, I knew the right thing to wear was my beloved cross necklace to remind me of where I’ve been and where I was at that moment and what is to come in the future. the necklace is all the more special to me for having been part of my wedding attire.

    When I was a little girl, my grandparents always bought really nice jewelry for me (for example: a 14k gold heart necklace with my name engraved on it was a gift for my 3rd birthday). My favorite piece of jewelry is one I had forgotten about for years. When I was about 9, my grandmother gave me a 24k gold ring with a heart at the center and pretty filigree inside the heart and along the band. She purposefully got the ring too big so I could grow into and had a bar put in so I could wear it as soon as she gave it to me. As I got older I, like most girls, wore more silver jewelry than gold. I put the ring away and didn’t wear it for almost 20 years. While cleaning out my old jewelry box, I found my grandmother’s ring and decided it was time to wear it again. I wear it almost every day to remind myself that old can be new again if it means something to you.

    my mother gave me a necklace made from one of my grandmother’s diamond rings. it’s not really my style, but i treasure it and wear it on special occasions because i loved my grandmother and i remember exactly how that ring looked on her hand when he she held my hand, how she told me it was her second engagement ring from my grandfather and how much he would have liked me to have it, had he known me. and now i do have it.

    I’m going to have to say my wedding band- it’s a small simple narrow silver band and I just love the simplicity.

    The first necklace my mom bought me, a gesture that was out of the ordinary for her. It’s a multicolored glass pendant on a silver chain; handmade; bought at a farmers market from a little vendor; the designs in the glass have touches of Art Deco. And it goes with nearly everything.

    My favorite piece of jewelry is my Grandmother’s engagement ring that my Grandfather gave to me when I turned 16.  My Grandmother had passed away a few months before my birthday and I was her “favorite” as I was the first granddaughter.

    My name necklace. It was bought for me on Cyprus when I was only two years old, in a tiny shop at the back of an ancient market. I wore it for years and years, through tweens and teens and into my 20s, and if it had not been for Carrie in Sex and the City making the name necklace trendy, I would probably still be wearing it. Instead, it is now in my husband’s wallet; in one way, I therefore go wherever he goes. I

    My silver wolf head pendant. It’s a much needed reminder of the strength that I possess to lead me through the dark.

    When I was in my early 20s, my grandmother discovered that I LOVE old family items, so she stopped giving me “normal” presents and starting just giving me things lying around her house.  🙂

    When I graduated with my Masters Degree, she gave me the COOLEST cameo broach that had been my great-grandmother’s.  Its in the original velvet box with the name of the shop in NYC.  Wrapped in a twisty, ornate gold frame, its a cameo of a city landscape.  It’s my most precious piece of jewelry!  I even wore it at my wedding.

    I love a necklace my hubby got me…it is small enough to wear all the time and is a constant reminder that he loves me.  What is different is that my wedding ring  we picked out together but he picked the necklace by himself and I know I wouldn’t have chosen any different.

    my parents bought be a white gold cross pendant for my 21st birthday to remind me of my faith and identity in Christ. the year i turned 21, many big things and changes happened in my life, such as the loss of a classmate to cancer. through it all i saw that God was indeed faithful, and that pendant is a reminder of my anchor through the storms of life.

    Courtney J says:

    I love this old bracelet that was created by my aunt for my high school graduation. She chose all the charms, which are differently shaped silver, red, and black pieces…Because the colors of my school were red and black. One of the charms has the year “2004”, the year I graduated. It’s more beautiful than a class ring.

    My favorite piece of jewelry is a necklace my husband gave me which has the word “Superhero” engraved on the back. It is like my own super power every time I wear it and makes me feel strong in the face of challenges.

    My favorite piece of jewelry is a simple gold chain with a pearl pendant I got from my mom. The pearl is misshaped and uneven. I like it because it is simple and because my mom told me that beauty doesn’t mean perfectly round or seamless, sometimes the bumps and imperfections is what makes it truly beautiful.

    My favorite are my engagement rings! Yes, ringS. My true engagement ring is from my husband. He designed it and used a diamond given to him by his late grandfather, a jeweler. It was his grandfather’s judging diamond, a diamond he used to check to quality of other diamonds. My second is my grandmother’s engagement ring, given to her by my grandfather in the 1940s. I plan on turning it into a necklace one day.

    My favorite piece of jewelry is a snowflake pendant. My grandmother had one and used to wear it year round because she said she loved the sparkle. My last year of school my grandmother passed away, and as a graduation present my mom got me my very own pendant, a symbol of my grandmother being there.

    My favorite piece of jewelery is this silver ring that I bought in a flea market in the South of France when I was 16 on an exchange. It didn’t cost a lot, but to me is priceless.

    Recently it is these two red yarn, huge bead necklaces that my son meticulously made for me using my favorite colors in intricate patterns. I used to think mothers wearing their kids’ creations looked a little dopey, but I get it now. To adorn someone is to show love and demonstrate insight into their own style and character.

    Kris Wraight says:

    My hammered engagement ring that my partner gave me after ten years together. It is 14ky gold in the middle of the ring hugged by sterling silver on all other sides. Not only is not too feminine for my look and style, but I like that the hammered waves and curves are so representative of a relationships ups and downs. Love is a beautiful thing that takes work. Can’t wait to buy my honey’s wedding ring from you Rebecca when I win!!!

    Nikki says:

    A pair of earrings that my husband bought me when we were living down in San Diego.  At that time we were both between jobs but he felt that I needed a little something special to feel beautiful and they are definitely an expression of love!  The earrings are a bit unusual and have coin pearls and aqua faceted beads dangling down like a waterfall and they hook through my ears with a long curving silver piece.  They are also special to me because they were made by a local artisan who opened a darling little shop and I love that my husband knows that different and handmade is the most precious to me!

    Charlotte D. says:

    I love many pieces of my jewelry.  Some from my mother (a diamond ring after I graduated) and others from my husband (my engagement ring, my first ever pearl necklace).   I cherish all of them.  Each piece has a special significance for me and it would be hard to just pick one.

    I think my favorite piece of jewelry is my gold fan earrings that were my grandmother’s. They’re nothing special or expensive, but they remind me of my Mimi, and I love wearing them.

    Joren Robles says:

    One of my dearest friends made me a bracelet in therapy. It’s plastic beads. Cheap elastic and a J bead, for my initial. I count it as valuable as my grandmothers cameos, my mom’s diamonds and my grandfathers opal cufflinks. Jewelry made with love is as great as jewelry given with love.

     In addition to the sentiment (of course), I really worked hard to find my engagement ring! I am serious about jewelry and my fiance knew I should choose my own ring. I searched high, low, and in between for about six months until I found it. It’s a pear-shaped Victorian piece with old, imperfect stones that I love. We hemmed and hawed over the expense, but I have a lovely memory of my fiance taking the plunge to put the ring on hold while we were on vacation, because we couldn’t bear the thought of losing the ring to someone else! It all sounds very business-y, but really I think trusting your partner and collaborating on such a huge decision is quite romantic indeed!
