Tuesday's Treasures


I have decided to join Clare and 16 others in Tuesday's treasure, at least until I run out of interesting items to show anyway!

This necklace is very special in that it belonged to my Grandmother. I never really met her as I was about 6 months at the one and only meeting that we had. It is very delicate in appearance and has pearls and amethyst, which is my adopted birth stone. My true birth stone is turquoise and to me it always looks like it has come out of Christmas cracker and I really do not like it.

I wore this on my wedding day and spent months trying to find little earrings to match which I eventually did. Pearl drop with little bits of amethyst above. Not as precious as the necklace but it did the job on the day.

This necklace is often worn as I do feel that it should not be shut up in a box, but I do check the catch regularly. It is to be passed on to Sophie when I am gone and it is to stay in the family.

So this is my first Tuesday Treasure no story attached to it really, just family links but I think that is all there needs to be.

Oh it is beautiful and I am so glad that you wear it, it is far to pretty to be hidden away in a box.

That is so Beautiful! I have a Butterfly Brooch that my Grandmother gave me, and instead of keeping it tucked away in the cupboard I have attached it to the front of a padded Heart and so then can always have it on show! Andrea x
