Oh Me, Oh My, What did I buy?

The funny thing about going to estate sales looking for jewelry is that everyone else is looking for the same thing. Throwing elbows in the front room standing above the glass jewelery case...I usually don't have enough will to fight on a Saturday morning and I don't take it personally. So I tend to give up however, this payed off last weekend. I headed for the back room of the residence and upon my arrival, I found stacks of shoe boxes full of tangled up jewelry waiting to be sorted through. This is what I found:
These jewels must of adorned a very classy lady!

For some reason this necklace/earring set really called out to me (how spiritual huh?) I don't think I'll be sporting the earrings (they will be used though) but I adore the necklace pendent!

This necklace should be worn by a Roman Goddess...
OK, maybe not a Roman Goddess but it's still cool though!

I have some kind of fetish with lockets, pockets and sprockets and looking afar, I thought this ring was an old fashioned locket or poison ring. So I grabbed it up without giving a second thought. It wasn't until I got home that I discovered it included my next fetish for watches!
The clock is not working but I'm hoping to get it looked at. Gotta go Project Runway is on! Hope you all are having a nice mid week!

"My husband gave me a necklace. It's fake. I requested fake. Maybe I'm paranoid, but in this day and age, I don't want something around my neck that's worth more than my head."
