National Prairie Day & Jewelry

Today is Prairie day and after a little research I discovered even ladies on the prairie liked to feel pretty and wore jewelry.

They often wore bracelets as a matched set like earrings

They also wore earrings and a matching pin at the collar of their dresses. They were usually a cameo set.

Most of them only wore a wedding band and no other form of ring.

I am so glad today we aren’t limited to just a few pieces of jewelry, but one thing we have in common with our ancestors from the prairie. We do like our jewelry to match.
