Im a weirdo who loves tacky jewellery...lol I don't own any though (amazing that is) but I do love looking at it, even contemplating the purchase.
But I try to be very pragmatic because If I won't wear it, why buy it right? So I reserve to love of it from afar. (that sounds so utterly sad...lol)
These things. I hated them then and I hate them now.
I wore all kinds of ugly things in the 90s (hello doc Martens with no socks) but I drew the line at stretch chokers.
i thought I'd reacquaint my self with Queen Victoria's teeth (her children's teeth) jewlery
and i came across the first piece
not ugly if you didn't know what it was
its from Princess Vicky the eldest child who became a German Empress
she lost her first baby tooth on holiday in Scotland
....as for the others
highly sentimental and im sure beautiful workmanship
but from another time
so kinda ugly to us all these generations latter
kind of sad some got sold in auction, seems like the kind of thing that should be in Queen Victoria's bedroom in a royal residence or at least with a descendant of the original owner of the tooth - or maybe even in a museum or in the royal collection
