Our first (and only) wedding happened when we were five. We “married” the six-year-old boy across the street in a ceremony officiated by the kid who lived two doors down. The veil: a pillowcase held by a headband. The bouquet: dandelions. The ring: the groom’s great-grandmother’s wedding ring that he stole from his mom’s jewelry box—oops!
We loved that ring, but as soon as our mom saw it we were marched across the street to tearfully return it to our unhappy “mother-in-law” (you know the type), and our “hubby” got the spanking of a lifetime. We wouldn’t be shocked if 30 years later he still can’t sit right.
Though the honeymoon was short-lived, so began our love affair with fine, antique and vintage jewelry. Recently, our romantic side was revived when we stepped foot in Alexandria Rossoff Jewels and Rare Finds. Bursting with exquisite Art Deco, Edwardian, and Victorian pieces as well as antique and period jewelry, you’ll find that unique necklace or perfect heirloom engagement ring. Just remember to lock your jewelry box.
