This is a picture of a piece of jewelry that belonged to my mother's older sister.
When my aunt died, dealing with her estate proved to be a sad and heavy burden for Mom, and ultimately a lot of my aunt's personal effects just lingered in boxes in Mom's basement. My aunt had been widowed young and had led a vivid and active social life which was Not Discussed in Front of The Children. She also, it turned out when the boxes migrated to my sister's basement at the end of Mom's lifetime, had accumulated a rather large collection of jewelry. There may have been a connection. Sis and I just shrugged and divvied up the swag.
I'm posting a picture of this gold and lapis pendant that I found in the treasure chest, because I think it's a stylized version of a constellation, but I can't tell which. I'm hoping someone more knowledgeable than I will be able to identify it. The pendant's about the size of a US fifty-cent piece. Any thoughts? Chime in!
