My collection: necklaces

Here are a few of my fave necklaces. They all happen to be vintage, though I’m not sure on the origin of them. They also happen to be gold. I used to prefer silver, though now I’m attracted more to gold.

Blue stone – My mom gave this to me last year at Christmas. She found it some time again at a second-hand shop.

Round locket – I had been looking for a locket for the longest time. I found this one after taking and passing my state board test.

Floral heart – Another piece courtesy of my mom. It might be mother of pearl? Whatever it is, I think it’s adorable.

Next up from my collection? Some rings!


My collection: brooches

My apologies for the delay of this post. I’m later with it than promised. In planning to blog about my jewelry, I also had the chance to clean and organize my collection.

First, a few of my favorite brooches.

Smoky quartz – One of the many pieces I’ve sorta taken from my mom. You can see some of the  small stones have fallen out, probably due to me playing with it since childhood.

Cameo – The prettiest cameo I have. It was my grandma’s.

Floral mosaic – My mom recently gave me this one. I’m looking forward to wearing it for the first time.

I’ll have more pieces to showcase in the coming days.

Do you have a collection?

Jewelry style

I love jewelry. Though it may not always be evident, since I often forget to wear it, but my jewelry box is overflowing. Soon, I’ll take some blog-worthy photos of my pieces, but for now, I’ll leave you with a few pieces I wish were in my collection.


I love the detail on this enamel and sterling silver locket. And the colors. And the fact that it’s a locket. Because you know, it’s fun to have jewelry with hinges.


These vintage rings are beautiful, yet seemingly impractical. They look fragile, so I’d fear they’d break. Therefore, I’d like one in each color please.


OK, at first glance, these might be a bit too old lady chic, even for me. But I still want to wear them. With a belted cardigan, my hair up and maybe a beret.

Check back next week for photos of pieces I actually do own,  some wedding beauty inspiration and more!
