Favorite Jewelry.

I thought I'd show you some of the jewelry I wear more often, mostly in beautiful shades of white and blue/teal. They make me feel beautiful and happy! I have so many necklaces, earrings and bracelets that I could easily fill in a shop LOL
The pearls below I've been presented by my Granny... they're probably my most-worn necklace at all, together with the braided one on the right.

Vintage pieces (bought for a song) and treasured handmade pretties and gifts...

Other pearls from my Granny... we used to go together to choose the perfect present, so they have such warm memories attached!

A stunning cameo I've been given by my husband. Love the transparency of the 'real thing'...

Other gifts by two of my dearest friends, Karriann and Louise, both talented jewelry designers... I'm very lucky :)

... and a gorrgeous blue Svarovski bracelet from my hubby. He knows me well :)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  1. Wunderschöne Schmuckstücke, die ich auch sehr gern tragen würde!
    Hab noch ein feines Wochenende
    Liebe Rosaliegrüße∙∙♥♥∙∙

  2. lovely AND sentimental pieces. i just adore that blue floral rhinestone bracelet from your hubby. so lovely! ;)

  3. Lovely pieces with so much meaning. I wear the same thing everyday. A diamond pendent my husband gave me after my oldest was born, my wedding ring and a 10 year anniversary band, and little diamond earrings that dangle a tiny bit. I am a bit boring, but they mean something to me so I never take them off.
    Hugs to you sweet Monica.

  4. Not surprising my favorite jewelry is very much yours..

    I have a thing for vintage clip on or screw earrings since I cannot wear pierced anymore:) I do love rings also.
    I wear my mom's pearls even in the garden:)
    Very pretty pics..and your last little floral bracelet? I think the exact in fall colors was offered to me by by daughter at her wedding:)

  5. Your jewelry collection is very beautiful and holds many memories.

    My aunt, who is 85 now, gave me two things. When I turned 16, it was her cameo necklace and at 21, the matching earrings. The cameos were bought in Italy by her husband, about 55 years ago.

    You've reminded me that I should write a letter to my aunt. Have a lovely weekend.


  6. Your jewelry collection is very pretty - thanks for sharing it with us.
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  7. Your jewelry collection is very pretty, and very YOU, from the little I know about you. It fits your blog feeling, too. Simple, elegant and with deep feeling for family.

  8. Your jewelry : just splendid!
    I think our jewels reflect precious moments of our life.
    Happy Saturday evening!

  9. Love seeing your favorites, Monica. What sweet and lovely treasures, and all the more beautiful on beautiful YOU! The cameo is sooo pretty!

  10. It's wonderful to have some bling in the day, especially when the pieces have special meaning. So lovely, Monica – thank you for sharing.

  12. Beautiful. I love jewelry and don't feel dressed without it -- rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings. Gotta have them. My FIL and husband gave me a three strand pearl necklace after my MIL died, as a thank you for helping to take care of her during her last months with cancer ... but I don't know what to wear it with. Every time I put it on, I feel uncomfortable. :/ Have a great day. Tammy
