Sentimental Jewelry Ideas

I am a jewelry girl through and through. I begged my mom to let me get my ears pierced when I was in preschool, I remember this vividly because by the time she finally took me, I chickened out on getting the second ear pierced because the first one hurt so badly (we went back a few weeks later to finish it up). Point being, I loved jewelry from a young age. Maybe it was that game “Pretty Pretty Princess” – who’s with me? From statement earrings, dainty necklaces and bracelets, I’ve always considered myself a collector.

As I’ve hit milestone ages and moments throughout my life, my family always commemorated the occasions with a piece of jewelry. From my first pair of diamond studs to my first David Yurman bracelet. And when I turned 18, my mom passed down what my dad gave her for a push present when I was born – a ruby and diamond ring. So it should come as no surprise that when I had Lucy, it was one of those moments in life that needed to be commemorated with a piece I’d cherish until I am ready to pass it down to her. A locket was the first thing that came to mind when Freddie asked what I wanted as a push present, a place I could hold him and her closest to my heart.  The piece I am wearing here is by Monica Rich Kosann, her yellow gold diamond. “Anna” locket is one of my most treasured pieces.

So if you’re looking for a heritage piece to commemorate a milestone moment in your life, here are a few sentimental jewelry ideas I am personally in love with.

My Picks


I love how you mixed metals so elegantly. (With your rings white gold and your necklaces yellow gold) Beautiful. And that locket is so special, perfect for the birth of your daughter! LOVE
