A new/old necklace

I’ve worn this necklace a lot since Christmas (which is evident through my Fashion Friday posts), but I haven’t given you a good look at it.

My mother-in-law gave this necklace to me as a Christmas gift.  The pendant was taken fom an earring that she’s had for years.  Her father brought back an opal jewelry set, including the earrings, from Thailand.  She took one of the earrings and added it to a matching gold chain.
I almost cried when she gave it to me.  I think it’s just gorgeous, but really, the fact that she would basically design a piece of jewelry for me from something of her own… I don’t think I can explain what that means to me.
Do you have any reworked jewelry?  Heirloom jewelry?
