FUN MONDAY - Favourite Jewelry
more participants here
The Misanthrope has the following assignment for us :
Do you have a piece of jewelry or other item that holds great personal significance for you, and that you wear or keep with you every day? Show us a photo of your talisman, and tell us why it is so important to you.
That is rather difficult for me because I don't have any piece of jewelry which has a great personal significance for me. All the jewlery I have I love the same way.
When I was younger I loved gold and real precious stones. Since a few years they are all in a safe because I don't wear them anymore. I switched over to silver and semi precious stones. I did the opposite of what women usually do, they wear silver when young and gold when old.
Zircon and moonstone
This ring I bought here (in Egypt) last year and wear it every day. There are 4 others but I have no picture of them.
During the 7 times I stayed in Egypt I bought these necklaces and armlets with turquoises, corals and mother of pearl stones. They have beautiful jewelery for all tastes and not expensive at all compared to Belgium, Italy, or Germany.
Hematite and turquoises
Agates and Malachite
On all these items my heart hangs on, but there is nothing special to tell about them. Usually they were Birthday or Christmas gifts (which I choose myself of course, hehe)
