Sentimental jewelry items... What are yours?

I was 7 and a half months pregnant when we bought and moved into our house, so I was wearing my engagement ring without my band (they wouldn't both fit at the time). My wedding band is a custom-made ring guard that is obviously very special to me because it's my wedding band, plus it was made by my aunt who owns a jewelry store.
Well, I was keeping it in a small jewelry box with my deceased aunt's ring, my deceased great-grandmother's diamond earrings, and other irreplaceable items.
Guess what was the one item I couldn't find after the move... The jewelry box.
Fast forward to two and a half years later, and my husband found it while cleaning and organizing the garage! Instead of gloating or making me feel bad for having lost it, he came in with my wedding band and proposed to me again (d'awwww).
Now my wedding set is at the store being cleaned and adjusted, so I'm wearing my aunt's ring in its place until it's done.
What jewelry items hold special meaning sentimental value for you?

I have a jade stone set in a ring that my great aunt got in her travels around the world. My grandmother passed it down to me a few years ago. My mom also has some stuff from my grandmother that she will pass down to my siblings and I in a few years

I don't have any. My mom keeps all of my grandma's jewelry. :/

Ring given to me by a dear friend before he died, silver ring given to me by my grandmother when I was young, and a pair of small diamond earrings that belonged to another family member.

That's really cool! Do you know where it came from during her travels?

 I have a little ring that my first love gave me, my grandmother's engagement ring and a necklace that my father gave me.
