FAMILY JEWELRY
a LEGACY of LOVE



This is my maternal grandmother,
Agnes Jeanette King Negley
. I knew her only from family stories…
she was born in Kentucky in 1891 and died in 1930 when my own Mother was
only eight years old. Her box of jewelry was passed on to me and
enchanted me completely and permanently with jewelry. Her jewelry was
from the early 1900’s. Notice the wonderful lavaliere she is wearing.

Her cameo, lavalieres and seed pearl star brooch are shown below.
As a young girl, she received the tiny gold ring with a gypsy set
diamond (shown at right). It is engraved on the inside with her
initials "AJK" and I have worn it most of my life.

this can be seen in the

mistress of Louis XIV in the 1660s. This lovely pendant belonged
to my stepfather’s mother, Dorothy.
