My Abuela always had exquisite taste. She very rarely purchased beauty or fashion items but whenever she did it would be something high quality. When she passed in 2008, I inherited a few of her belongings and after some cleaning recently my Mom passed on a few more things of Abuela’s to me.
Above is a perfume bottle necklace. Great idea right? Last year I bought a perfume necklace from JewelMint where you could store a cotton ball soaked in perfume (so it would waft out throughout the day) but this takes the idea to a whole new level.
I wish I knew where she got most of her jewelry, they all have had very similar styles so she seemed to be loyal to a certain store. If you have any ideas, let me know!
Update: It’s a 1977 Givenchy necklace!
The idea behing passing on heirlooms is really special to me. My engagement ring is my Mother’s and my wedding ring will be my Abuela’s (I’ll have a post on that soon). I hope I have something special to give my children that they can cherish as much as I cherish this. I imagine each item absorbing the love around it and keeping it safe for the next generation. I wish my Abuela could know how happy and loved I feel now.
Do you plan on passing anything down? Do you have anything from a relative?
Kindness is the best accessory,
