What kinds of jewellery do you remember from your childhood?

My grandfather had given my grandmother a beautiful medallion with a flamingo on the one side and a peacock on the other, both made from down feathers. He had bought it in Colombia where he worked as a young man. I remember that he made a new and nicer mount for it in his workshop. I’ve inherited the medallion and it means a lot to me. I’ve always been fascinated by jewellery but perhaps more by their narrative than their actual expression.
