I have always like costume jewelry. It's fun, colorful and speaks independent. It brings out the gypsy in you! My mother had purchased lots of Avon jewelry - lots. She didn't wear jewelry, but just liked to look at it. The Avon jewelry was about the first thing that my sister and I went through to pick out what we each wanted to keep. There were a few things for men, but my brother had other things he was salivating over.
