While diamonds are a girls best friend, meaningful jewelry is equally precious. They are reminders of the special people in our lives, important occasions and being loved. Each piece tells a story and helps us stay connected to our past.
My first meaningful piece of jewelry was a Stephen Dweck charm bracelet given to me on my 16th birthday by my grandparents, Marcella and Jack Diner. I remember being thrilled by the beauty and pastel colors of the bracelet. Simply stated, I was “charmed”!
Next came a sterling silver Else Peretti square bottle pendant from Tiffany, a gift from my Aunt Roxanne. What I loved most about this unique piece was that it was meant to hold a flower.
Fast forward to my 19th anniversary, when I gifted myself a custom cuff that was inscribed with our initials and our wedding date – thank you David! I wear this classic bracelet every day and I love the story it tells.
Last year, 3 of my friends gave me a gold pendant necklace with the word GRATEFUL inscribed on it. The message is inspirational and a reminder of just how grateful I am for their friendship. On days where I’m feeling less than, I often choose this piece as a reminder not to sweat the small stuff.
Over time, I’ve come to realize that giving meaningful jewelry touches the heart of others and is just as valuable as receiving it.
