Still life photography - vintage jewellery

My sisters and I inherited a collection of old jewellery from my great grandmother.

I finally made some still life photographs with some of the pieces I chose.

Most of this collection belonged to my great grand mother's sister-in-law Viola,  pictured above.

The boxes are just as beautiful as the jewellery.

There is always a story behind vintage pieces.
That is their charm!

I wonder what places my aunt and uncle traveled to.  
What was her favourite piece of jewellery to wear?

Does anyone else have a special heirloom tucked away?
