My Jewelry Box


It's funny how my taste has changed over the years. I used to be an earring person, wearing big gypsy jewelries throughout my collage years, while I didn't even own a watch or any sunglasses. These days I'm leaning much more towards statement watches and shades and hardly ever wear my beloved earrings anymore. Most of my jewelries and accessories are souvenirs from various trips, including my two jewelry boxes from Egypt and Tunisia. Some people collect magnets I prefer necklaces and bangles! :D It always feels like I take a piece of the culture with me through these jewelries and I love to be reminded of the beautiful places and friendly people I met during these journeys. Lately I've started to enlarge my collection with some vintage pieces and I've got a feeling that it's just the beginning! :) Do you have a special piece of jewelry that you treasure above everything else? I'd love to hear its story! :)

I love to buy clothes or jewelry when I travel too. I'm wearing sandals from Austria today, and I have a turquoise necklace at home that I bought for 10 lira at a roadside stand in Turkey. Both pieces remind me of where I was when I bought them, so I try to wear them a lot!

I love your pieces, they are all so beautiful! I have one prized piece - it's a platinum ring my grandfather had made for my mother for her 13th birthday. It has the most beautiful one karat blue topaz surrounded by pave diamonds set into wings.

My tastes have changed too...but it is fun to look and see what I used to be obsessed with and how sometimes now I think I would never sport that! LOL!

Whenever I've lost a grandma, (I had three!) their jewelry got passed to me. The majority of it was costume, but I do have two wedding ring sets (one was my great grandmothers from the 20s). I treasure them all. Great post!

Have a great day!

Very fun to get a peek into your jewelry box. I too, love to pick up jewelry when I travel-it is always a happy keepsake of the place!

My favorite is a silver bracelet with black pearls that my husband bought me on my honeymoon in French Polynesia from the store Tahia Collins. Recently, I'm loving this bracelet I purchased in Guatemala that has a few Jade beads!

Awesome post, I love that it's become more eclectic over time.

Meesh said...

I love that green bracelet. I don't usually wear a lot of jewelry (if any), but my favorite pieces all come from my grandmother. She had a lot of really weird costume jewelry, and I find that I've inherited her taste!

Kristen said...

i'm all over the place when it comes to jewelry! i def know what you're talking about when you say you how your tastes have changed, because i know mine definitely have a ton! love the braided necklace and leaf necklace that you picked out : )

Jennyboo said...

My jewelry tastes have changed as well. Yet I still can't part with some of my favorite pieces. I am much more inclined to invest in a few more expensive pieces if I really really love them. Great blog! xoxo

I feel like my tastes change every season! But it's fun to amass an eclectic collection. :-) Whenever I travel, I love to pick up a piece of jewelry (or another accessory) to remind me of the trip.

Jenna said...

What a lovely collection you have! The boxes are especially beautiful.

Love all this blingbling <3

These are great pieces of jewelry. The necklaces are fabulous, and they look vintage. They would make very nice gifts for our friends and loved ones!

It has a lot to do with changing tastes and necessity too. I was once a huge fan of those bracelets with big beads, wearing 3 or more loops in each wrist at a time. I even had the ones with dangling beads on them! But ever since I worked the desk daily, I found it got in my way too much. So I just settled for a watch.
