One of my favorite pieces of jewelry I own is a pin/pendant from Tiffany’s. It is an antique piece 18K gold with loads of diamonds. It is heavy, and oh so beautiful. I have researched it, and haven’t been able to find if it was made for a specific person or not. I even took it to Tiffany’s for them to research. They shipped it to New York where they had it photographed. The had it for a couple of weeks, and I was starting to miss it. I asked that they send it back to me. They obliged, and sent it back the next day. Tiffany’s said told me that it was one of their rarer collections. Many of the experts had not seen anything like it before in person. I feel pretty lucky to own it.

When I was younger, my dearest friends jokingly called me “Contessa Grigia”. They would yell “Contessa” from the balcony as I walked to their apartment. They also called me “Ninja Turtle”, since my backpack was full of books. Contessa Grigia is more attractive to me than Ninja Turtle, although Ninja Turtle is pretty funny!
My username became “Contessa Grigia” (Countess Gray), with a chuckle. Now, it is a matter of owning it. LOL!
