Family Heirlooms

Garance Doré, my favorite fashion blogger, has a post today about her friend’s Hermès Kelly bag. I concur that it occasionally takes time and experience to bring an item to life. A tale can be told with each imperfection. The piece has a spirit behind it which casts its glow on the fortunate beneficiary.

I will ultimately inherit my great-grandmother’s cocktail ring which, as legend has it, was acquired with bootlegging profits. Are you the guardian of a precious heirloom? Does it carry a story or secrets?
