@sunshine_kar: I’ll bite. “Normal” jewelry isn’t really my thing. I love vintage things, so I will say that my 4 most unique pieces of jewelry are 2 rings and 2 lockets.

– 1 ring is my engagement ring, a cluster diamond art deco style from the 1920s

– 1 ring is my wedding ring, which was my great great grandmother’s from the 1880s. I’ve always loved it because it’s wider than normal, but flat, and a mix of metals, so it’s slightly brassier than gold

– 1 locket is a large silver locket from the 70s, with an almost art deco kind of sculpted metal design on the front

– the other locket is a small locket from the 60s, black and white enamel in a mod design

Yeah, I know you said your most unique piece, but I didn’t want to chose. And I’m sorry that I’m too lazy to post pictures.

I have a necklace made out of the scrap silver from church chalices. It’s from 1974, germany, from a man who was a brain surgeon and took up jewelry making in his spare time, and later retired to make just jewelry. It is also worth a pretty penny.

I have a lot of unique jewelry, but I think the silver swirly bracelet I bought in Croatia, and the copper necklace and ring I got in Bosnia are probably the most unique.

My cheap silver bracelet.  It’s a solid, sturdy thing, with the most beautiful feather the makes up 1/2 of the band.  I wear it everyday, to dress up, and other than my earrings, it was the only piece of jewelry I wore for my wedding.

No pictures but I have a a gold and alexandrite ring and earings set from imperial russia. They are a family heirloom that belonged to my great-great-grandmother. The ring was her engagement ring and the earings were a wedding present (to match the ring).

@reginaphalange: It was given to me as a gift by one of my bosses who’s husband had it specially made for her while they were living over in Germany while he served in the military. She said that once, her neck was pretty like mine, but the necklace wouldn’t do her justice anymore, she doesn’t have any daughters, so she gave it to me. It’s a very special piece to me. 🙂

I’ll play! I don’t remember how I got this, or when, but it’s cute, and I can’t bear to get rid of it, even though I haven’t worn it in years, lol.
