I laughed when I read that my friend is wearing pearls and makeup to the delivery room.
I wore mine there, too.
I don't own heirloom jewelry, but I loved this inexpensive freshwater strand with its irregular shapes. Wore them every during my pregnancy, and every day after, including to her baptism.
One day while nursing, she ripped them from my neck. We never recovered them all. I should put them in the safety deposit box with a note for Elise.
Maybe one day we can sew them to her wedding veil. Anyone have creative ideas for recycling them in the meantime?
