Did you start with family pieces, your wedding sets, or other pieces you bought for yourself? And at what age?
Oh, how I love the Asian obsession with high karat gold!rosetta|1308050911|2945453 said:I've been given jewellery since birth, but not a lot.
Like Trekkie I too have tiny gold bangles! Hmmm... I might dig them up and keep them for my own kids.
My substantial pieces all come from my in laws and FI. My mother likes high karat gold, not stones.
He he, I do this too. My b'day is just a month before Xmas so I usually say I'd like a combo prezie that's more significant that two separate ones of lesser values! Oh and I've gone a bit further than that. I justified my pear ring by combining Valentines and wedding anniversary, even though they're quite a few months apart!diamondseeker2006|1308013296|2945176 said:The first pieces of jewelry I can recall from my childhood were a sterling cross, a pearl ring, and a little yg flower ring with a small, round blue sapphire (my birthstone). Later birthdays and Christmases I got nicer pieces such as a bangle bracelet and engraved locket, and other rings and earrings. I've only kept the most sentimental pieces because that was in the days of yellow gold, although all my jewelry was classic. I just wear white metals now. My nicest jewelry I have just accumulated over time since I was married. Our anniversary is close to Christmas so I have been able to justify a nicer combination gift some years!
