I love my add-a-pearl necklace! My Grandma started it for me when I was a little girl and I remember mailing it back and forth each year around my birthday to have another pearl added to my necklace!
I wear my necklace now with thirteen pearls on it in graduated sizes (we stopped at my 13th b'day) nearly every day! It is my favorite piece of jewelry!
Growing up, I was allowed to wear it only for special occasions and holidays. And, now my Mom has begun necklaces for my two little ladies! They absolutely love wearing these and I've allowed them to wear them to church or for a special event.
What a treasure these are! The memories of them, the love behind the gift - and I love pearls anyway. They are simple and yet very elegant and they go with everything!
Do you have a favorite piece of jewelry with a tradition or special family memory behind it?
