When I got it home I opened it up and found this lovely blue velvet on the inside. I am guessing the velvet on the outside was once the same color and, like memories, has faded with time.
The label on the inside feels like brass. I Googled around about the name and was able to find out LaRoco made costume jewelry but I found few examples. The insert rocked like there was something under it so I lifted it out.
My heartstrings are aching.
