What is your birthstone?


What is your favorite piece of jewelry and why?

Oh, so many choices. I'd have to say a right hand ring- something I change regularly and look at often! Or maybe a pair of dramatic gold earrings. Today it's a locket we found in one of Grandpa Anton's WWII trunks. It has the sweetest photo of him and my Grandma - must have been taken when they were in their 20's. I wear it on a long, diamond station chain by Hearts on Fire.
