Show & Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to my second Show & Tell Friday! This week I decided to share some of my vintage jewelry collection. My mom handed down most of these to me. I like to keep them piled in the cherub dish on my dresser rather than tucked away in a drawer. That way I can enjoy them every day!

I've LOVE this pink necklace and I wear this one once in awhile...
I wear this bracelet often and I get complimented on it a lot!
This rhinestone piece below is a belt. It's much more sparkly than it shows here...

Another pretty necklace...

A lovely green broach and earring set...

This piece was a gift from another blogger...
My mom bought me this cameo when I was a little girl...

Another pretty necklace from my mom...

My high school class ring, class of '78...I guess this is considered vintage now too!

My favorite is definitely the big, chunky bracelet, but they are all beautiful. I just love the way they are displayed in the cherub dish!

Maya@Completely Coastal said...

Wonderful handdowns!! Me too, love that big chunky bracelet.

I loved your post until you said 1978 graduating class is vintage. Hey, that's my class year also! lol. Love the jewelry, it's all about the memories! Thanks for hosting S&T.

Love it all, but especially the bracelet. My class ring sorta disappeared - have no clue as to what happened to it. Really like the way you display them - may need to redo mine.
Thanks for hosting.
Have a great weekend.

LDH said...

What a beautiful collection and so special that many were from your mom. The bracelet is lovely. The rhinestone belt is most unusual ~ very dressy!

I love the way you display these sweet pieces. You get to enjoy looking at them as they add charm to Your Romantic Home.

Chatelaine said...

Love all your vintage baubles. Love that pink necklace.

Just beautiful.

Elizabeth G. said...

I have some of my mother and grandmother's jewelry, too. Isn't it a wonderful treasure?

I really like the pink necklace you showed and another that looks like it has crystal and cream colored beads. I also adore the cameo. I have one, too, and I treasure it.

Do you ever show your bedroom? I love the livingroom and kitchen and I've always wondered how you've decorated your bath and bedrooms.

My boudior is blue with cream colored furniture and I get some of my decorating ideas for my bedroom from your pretty pictures. :) When I get better (bad back in bed) and get the clutter cleaned up again, I will post pics and let you know so you can see what I've done, sweet friend who loves white!

God bless!

Gattina said...

I love this kind of jewelry too, I like most the rose quartz looking necklace.

Susan B said...

Your jewelry is lovely. It's so nice that many of the pieces were given to you by your mother. The cherub dish is very pretty. I still have my class ring too... class of '73! Thank you for sharing, have a wonderful weekend!

Gee said...

Such a beautiful jewelry you have here. I love the green set the most. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

Jeanne Selep said...

Hello! I am glad to be joining Show and Tell Friday. I love "treasure"

Gracie said...

That bracelet is really my favorite! Just stunning! I can guess you have lots of memories linked to those pieces of jewelry.
I'll post the link to my post tonight from home because now at work I can't see MrLinky...

RobinfromCA said...

Everything is so pretty! It's hard to pick a favorite but I do love the pink necklace, cameo and the green brooch! My class ring is three years older than yours so I guess it would be considered vintage too. Yikes!

cindy@cottage instincts said...

Stunning pieces! I love all of them, but especially the pink necklace. Yummy :o)
peace, cindy

Hootin' Anni said...

Love, LOVE the cameo [I have several and never tire of them] ...and then that rhinestone belt!!! Whoa....I want it. LOL


My Show n Tell is another craft project I just finished this week.

Have a glorious weekend.

Willow said...

Love your cuff bracelet and pin. I collect pins and put them everywhere.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love those necklaces and the bracelet, Cindy! I don't wear a lot of jewelry in the summer, but now that the cooler weather is here, I am looking forward to adding a little bling to my outfits.

Lori said...

Love your jewelry! I like vintage rhinestone jewelry. My favorite pin cost $3 at an antique mall. It looks like a sun and catches the light like a diamond!

Dreamgirl said...

So pretty! I love that chunky bracelet too...

I hope you are participating in Pink Saturday tomorrow. Beverly has encouraged us to introduce a Pink Saturday participant we haven't visited before... and this week, I have chosen you:-)

Your blog is so pretty!

Charmaine said...

That is such pretty jewelry. I really love the cream/light yellow? colored pearl necklace. Such treasures she gave you. My daughter Sofia loves to recieve things like this as well. It feels so good to give her something as simple as a vintage necklace form the thrift store and she adores it. I hope she hangs on to her's as well.
Have a beautiful day Cindy!
Charmaine

Lee Laurie said...

I love all of it but my favorite is that bracelet! I would wear it all of the time. That is such a good idea to leave it all out displayed like that. Mine are all stuck away in drawers and my jewelry box.

Dawn said...

Hi Cindy,
These vintage treasures from your mom are so pretty. I don't wear much jewlery but it sure is fun to look at!
Hugs,
Dawn

I love those pieces. My Mom had tons of vintage Jewlery and she got rid of them instead of passing it to all the girls (5 to be exact). I LOVE that Cuff bracelet... simply gorgeous!!!

Leann said...

Hi Cindy

You have really great pieces. I love how you've displayed them in the bowl. They make for perfect eye candy.

I couldn't get myself together to join in this week - too may preparations for our family reunion tomorrow! But I hope to join in the fun next week!

Enjoy!

Esther Sunday said...

Gosh, beautiful items! Love the way your photographed your class ring! I was just a lowly freshman in 78!

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

I have a confession to make I was speed cruising thru your lovely things...and I came upon your class ring from 78. I was class of 78 and lost mine. I remember I lost it in my sister's office restroom in Paris leaving it by the sink. I guess it just wanted to stay in Paris! I've often thought I wonder what the person thought of it who found it. "Those American's with their clunky jewelry"
Thanks for the memory...though bittersweet!

Heidi said...

Cindy, The jewelry is all so lovely. Each piece has it's own special memory, that's wonderful. I read down further, too. I love the pictures of your friend's trip, and the white post which I missed this week. Very pretty!
I'd love to join in on the party next time.
BTW - '78 can't be antique, cause I graduated in '76. And I know I'm not antique, not yet, anyway!!! :)
