Day 133 - Vintage pearl and marquisite earrings

These are stunning aren't they? They were from my great aunt, who was also my godmother (I wrote about her before here and here). I don't really wear these as they are clip on earrings and I worry about them coming loose and losing them. I think its sad when that happens as jewellery was made to be worn not hidden away but some things are just too precious. They really are so beautiful...whilst I do tend to buy a lot of costume pieces I sometimes stumble across some vintage gems like these and you can just tell they will outlive everything else. I have no idea when these will have come from but I know that they've probably had one hell of a life!
