A grandmother's gift
"This sentimental necklace with the initial “O” belonged to my beloved grandmother Oneida, who was truly a remarkable lady. She wore this necklace daily and now I wear it to remember the beautiful person she was and the close bond we had." - Lena Diaz, acting deputy art director
Wish you were here
I received this charm bracelet when I was about 5 years old. It came with the Libra symbol, which is my astrological sign, and after that, whenever my parents went on vacation they’d bring me back a charm. Over the years I collected bits from England, Scotland, Holland, Florida, Mexico and New York. Sadly, the bracelet is way too small for me now, but it brings back good memories whenever I come across it in my jewellery box. –Suzanne Moutis, Executive Editor
"The only piece of jewellery I regularly wear is an heirloom-looking ring that I absolutely cherish—people ask about its provenance all the time. But here's the truth: It was a $25 score at the St. Lawrence Sunday Antiques Market in Toronto!"
