JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Hannah Israel's broach solved #general

Miriam Israel <mhisrael@...>

For those who wrote to me concerning my Jewish Grandmother's broach, I have
been down in Brisbane and Sydney for the past 2 weeks, so took my
Grandmother's broach with me, and showed it a Rabbi, and silly me, it is in
the star of David design, with an emerald (real) on each of the 6 pints,
all surrounded by diamonds, with real pearls up each line to the points.
I am quite sure that my Grandmother never knew it's real value, as she was
dirt poor, or if she did know, she must have been tempted many times to
pawn it for food etc to feed her 18 children. I know that it will always
stay in my family, as a family heirloom forever.
