Family Jewels

Both of these beauties were given to my mom by her mom, and recently they were passed on to me.
I got this little gold owl pin for Mother's Day. It was totally unexpected and I'm so happy to have it!
And this was actually originally one of a pair of earrings that my mom had altered by a jeweler to create two matching pendants, one for each of us (it was the simplest adjustment, just removing the hook and adding a bail, but he also replaced some missing stones). The center stone is an opal and it is surrounded by a diamond, an emerald, and six tiny pearls. I love it so much.
