Until recently, I've never really thought about looking at my jewelry as a collection. But now that I'm at the height of middle age, and about to inherit a big mixed bag of random pieces, I'm really interested in putting together a collection of very good pieces that I will wear. As it is, I am pretty much only tied to the following items: my engagement and wedding rings pair of "Diana" hoop earrings from Tiffany pair of mabe pearl earrings edged in gold 30" pearl and onyx bead necklace (T&Co) that my husband gave me for my 30th birthday 30" multi-strand necklace of natural pearls and tiny gold beads with an 18K gold clasp Things I think I'd like: Cartier tank watch diamond circle pin H. Stern rainbow bracelet Seaman Schepps shell earrings Jean Schlumberger white enamel bracelet (T&Co) good pearls (I'll be getting my mother's) I'm trying to think what else would be good to have, so I can start looking for it. I tend to wear earrings more than anything else, and feel my fingers are a little too stubby to enjoy rings. Bracelets are ok, but not for every day because they'd just get in the way. I'm not sure how I feel about necklaces. Anyway, please suggest other things that would be wonderful to have and to wear. I'm interested in timeless things that I'll want to wear for the rest of my life. Thanks!
