I was back visiting my family recently and I had another look in my Mother’s jewellery box to see which other pieces I remember looking at when I was little. I opened up one of the small drawers in her jewellery cabinet and found this beaten up little black leather case that I was instantly smitten with. I opened up the broken leather case and in it was a sterling silver and pearl brooch that I remember adoring when I was little.
It’s sterling silver with lovely hand engraved tiny details on it. The stamp on the back says SILVER, which I thought was interesting since in my jewellery career I’ve only ever seen stamps with either STERLING or 925.
