Do you guys have heirloom jewelry that has been passed down from older family members? Are you planning on passing your favorite pieces down to your children/other family members? My family is terrrrrrrrible about heirlooms/antiques! They throw everything away. My mother threw away a diamond necklace that my father bought her & her wedding band when she got divorced. Threw them in the trash! despite the fact that she has a daughter that loves sparkley things! ------>me! What's even worse is that my grandma has a lovely collection of jewelry because my grandpa buys her several pieces a year and they've been married for 50+ years. He used to hide them in the Christmas tree for her to find on Christmas morning. How cute is that? Last weekend she mentioned she wants to sell all of it off! It makes me so sad because she never wears the majority of it because it's all "too nice" and now it's all going to be sold off. It's their jewelry & they can do what they want, but I love the idea of being able to look at a ring or a necklace & say, "This was your great grandmother's engagment ring..." and knowing there's a story behind it.
