This is my maternal grandmother,
Agnes Jeanette King Negley
. I knew her only from family stories…
she was born in Kentucky in the late Victorian era in 1891 and died in 1930 when my own Mother was
only eight years old. Her box of Victorian and Edwardian jewelry was passed on to me and
enchanted me completely and permanently with jewelry. Notice the wonderful lavaliere she is wearing. Her lavalieres and
ring are shown here.
As a young girl, she received the tiny gold ring with a gypsy set
diamond (shown at left). It is engraved on the inside with her
initials "AJK" and I have worn it most of my life.
