Do you remember what is was like to be a little girl and dream of your wedding day? DOD you picture yourself in your mother’s dress or wearing your grandmother’s necklace from her wedding day?

Although heirlooms can be anything from a handkerchief to a bracelet but when you are able to participate in a tradition that has a lot of meaning to your family, there is a lot to be said about that warm and fuzzy feeling that you get. But memories are always in the making and heirloom doesn’t have to mean old so why not start with you?

The first thing that you need to look for in an item that could potentially be an heirloom is quality. No item will last long enough to be in the family for generations to come unless it has quality construction.

You also need to consider another aspect called timelessness. Try to avoid fads and trends if you’re choosing items that you would like to pass down to your children and grandchildren. Chances are, it will be a few generations before they will come back into style again.

To start a tradition that will stay in the family, a very easy way is with jewelry. Most of the time, a piece of jewelry that a woman owns sometimes has a story behind it. If it’s a good story, then it’s the beginning of a lasting heirloom. This is a great place to begin.

Just imagine yourself in 10 years, sitting on your couch with your daughter while you’re flipping through the photo album from your wedding day. You are wearing a unique necklace in all of the photos and it’s the finishing touch that really makes you the princess for the day as it sparkles beautifully.

Then, imagine yourself in 30 years and you’re standing with your daughter on her wedding day. Both of you are absolutely overwhelmed with anticipation for the events to come and cherishing every moment. You have buttoned each tiny button and have tied each bow on her beautiful dress and when she is almost ready to go down the aisle, you present her with the necklace that you wore on your big day and now she is ready.

Starting today and lasting for a lifetime, you can make these moments happen not only for you but for the people you love as well.
