Personal Jewelry Collection story featuring @luxcharmjewelry ✨
“My love affair with jewelry started at a very young age. I was fortunate to inherit a few special heirloom pieces, including my Great Great Grandfather’s engraved pocket watch and my Great Grandmother’s enameled pocket watch. My Dad started a tradition in the family where he would buy the women in his life jewelry for special occasions, like birthdays, graduation, and Christmas. Some of my favorite pieces include a monogrammed gold signet ringfrom when I was a teenager and more recently, a pair of gold dangly Art Nouveau earrings. Marking special occasions and making new memories with jewelry is important to me. Jewelry has a way of keeping our memories alive and helping us feel connected. I am crazy sentimental and I love how jewelry helps to serve as a visual reminder to important people and events of my past.
About 12 years ago, I began collecting and wearing antique jewelry. I love to go to local antique shops, thrift stores, and antique shows. Over the past few years, it has been more challenging shopping in person for jewelry. Nearly all of my favorite places have closed -and the Covid pandemic certainly hasn’t helped. But despite all that, I still think the Midwest is a great place for antiques. And I think the BEST place to look for antiques is in Ohio. I make the journey to my neighboring state at least 4 times a year to scour and shop. I love the thrill of the hunt! Personally, I don’t buy much from other dealers/collectors because quite frankly, I’m pretty cheap and I love to score a good deal.😆”
