    This is a very, very special piece of jewelry. My mother was a young girl during WWII. She loved her uncle J.D. very much. He was stationed at Pearl Harbor when it was bombed by the Japanese on December 7, 1941. Can you imagine how giddy and thrilled she was when her uncle sent her this heart necklace all the way from Hawaii to Florida? She wore the necklace everywhere and kept it safe from harm for the rest of her life. J.D. made it through the war safely despite a nasty scar on his abdomen where he was stabbed by a Japanese soldier somewhere in the Pacific. The heart is probably not very valuable, but it is the most priceless and precious item that I will ever own. The vibrant, smiling young girl in the photo made certain that she wore her special gift for the unsuspecting photographer to capture for eternity. Now, I am the keeper and protector of this special item that truly evokes the meaning and the essence of life, love, bravery and honor.
    Aloha!

      It is an AMAZING family keepsake-- the wonderful story makes the necklace priceless!

      I'd keep a copy of this posting with the necklace, so that the family history is not lost.

      Thanks for sharing!

      I think the most 'precious 'things' are nearly always the most inexpensive of 'thing'...and irreplaceable..which makes the them the most priceless of...'things'...:-)
