My Poppa, whom I just lost on December 5, 2008 had these earrings made up for me when I was about one year old. I had only ever wore them for special occasions (every special occasion throughout my life thus far). I brought them out of safe keeping the other day to look at them and decided I am going to wear them because life is short and I want to enjoy them. I have absolutely no clue about any of the specs or even the size of them except of course they are small, mind you they didn''t look small when I was one!
They really do sparkle though. So I thought I would share them with you all.

... and last but not least an ear shot, they are small and delicate, but I love them so very much! The sentimental value is priceless ...

They''re lovely, missjaxon! And such a sweet sentimental story behind them! Good for you to bring them out of safe keeping and wear them - jewels are meant to be worn and bring us joy, not just sit locked away somewhere in the dark.

Thank you ladies for all of your compliments and kind words, it means a lot!! I love them so much!! I find myself glimpsing in any nearby mirror to admire their sparkle, and sparkle they do even for being little baby diamonds. I have grown to love their delicate petite size, and best of all they are a constant reminder of my very special Poppa and all of the good memories we have had over the years (including all of the special events we celebrated together with these babies in my ears!) Thanks for looking!

What a wonderful gift and a sweet way to remember your poppa!

BTW, my mom passed away December 4, 2008. She also gave me a teeny tiny diamond that I will always remember her by...

I LOVE the size! Lots of sparkle, but very dainty and wearable at the same time. Beautiful. And a lovely story behind them, as well.
