When you were pint size, you claimed to be the descendant of lion-taming pole-vaulters. Now that you’re grown, we suggest embellishing your lineage a little more discreetly.
Start by designing your own heirloom with help from Lisa Jill Jewelry. Choose from an affordable selection ($20 and up) of pretty little things (fraternity and sorority pins, sports medals, skeleton keys) to mix and match on a retro chain.
Treasure hunter Lisa Resnick scours antiques markets and estate sales for oddities like an engraved locket from the 1800s (with photos still intact) or a Fulton County volleyball state champ award. All you have to do is choose the charms and chain that speak to you.
Proudly wear your family’s Cobb County discus throw bronze medallion circa 1914 — we won’t tell Grandma if you don’t.
