I’ve collected a few stories to share with you from real people who have had actual experiences with types of jewelry hauntings. Some of the experiences are just a feeling. Some feelings are accompanied by visions of people long gone. One story is not so much a haunting as it is a strange and uncanny coincidence. I’ll even share a story with you about my own personal experience.
I can only hope it’s a dark and storming night when you read these stories to set the appropriate mood!
The next week, a man came in who claimed that he had a vision of roses while he held it. Again, I thought, “right…” and put the brooch back in the case. I basically forgot about the stories after that. It wasn’t until about a month after the first two experiences that I started to wonder about this piece. It was another woman this time, who basically told me what the first woman did- that a daughter had the brooch made to commemorate her mother’s passing. She also told me that she was “getting the impression of roses.” She said she didn’t have anything specific, just the impression of roses or the color of roses. It was then that I started wondering! At first I wondered if I was on candid camera and if someone would jump out and yell, “gotcha!!” I couldn’t figure out, though, how three separate people who didn’t know one another told me variations of the same thing. I thought it was kind of creepy so I put it in my safe and decided to keep it out of the showroom for a while.
The brooch stayed in the safe for at least TWO YEARS when a woman came in asking for mourning jewelry. I pulled it out expecting some sort of curious story, but none came. This woman did buy the brooch and I thought I had the last of the stories. Not quite. The woman who bought the brooch came back to me and told me that she had a psychic do a reading on it. She said that the psychic told her that the brooch belonged to a daughter who had it made it after her mother’s passing. The daughter would sit in a chair by a window and look at her mother’s rose garden while holding the brooch.
The buyer said that she had seen a “shadow person” in her bedroom and had nightmares of a girl named Sarah drowning!
