My mother and I recently discussed using my grandmother’s gold to create something special for each of her grandchildren, these would in turn become heirlooms for generations to come.

Do you have any family heirlooms?

Yes, I definitely do! My mother was into antique jewellery and had quite an impressive and valuable collection of it that she bought herself or that was passed on to her from older women in the family.
I have a necklace from my great aunt, which whilst not of any huge $ value, is a lovely item and it's beautiful to wear a necklace from a previous era.
I have my great grandma's wedding ring.
I do.
But I will just keep them, till I pass on...only a Cameo, and a few little rings.
Mother didn't wear much jewellery, she was too poor for really most of her life.
Fair enough, jonaj.

Yes, I have several though I have now lost two rings.

My most precious is a 1 carat diamond of very good quality that my Uncle in Germany brought to Australia. He was a jeweller and I also have a pendant he made out of a shilling when he came to Australia.

I also have several other pieces of jewellery and the most beautiful dinner sets from my parents which they brought from Germany also.

That's really special, Finy.

We inherited a lot of things when my partner's mum died. Some of it is quite old - from her parents or grandparents. I don't think my partner has ever fully gone through it all, so I'm not really sure what's there. I don't really have anything from my side of the family.
My Mother's mother had an American Silver Dollar brooch. I've had it made into a pendant.

My Grandmother's really tiny Engagement diamonds, plus my Mother's Engagement & Anniversary Diamonds, I've had made into a beautiful ring of my design.
I designed all my jewellery, & then had it made by my jeweller.

That was when I worked. Sadly, no more.

That sounds beautiful, donjo.
