I know I've mentioned it at some point before, but I have jewelry. Mostly of the handmade or incredibly sentimental kind. When my grandpa came to the United States he put down roots for us in a brick and mortar shop specializing in gold and silver. I remember visiting every summer and going through piles of "junk silver" and cases of ring molds for custom rings— always wanting to be able to one day design my own. As time went by, the jewelry part of the business ceased, but I've been able to hold on to a few pieces he made or purchased especially for my grandma. Throughout the years I've been lucky enough to not only collect pieces from my grandmother, but I’m grateful to receive my fair share of sentimental handmade pieces as gifts as well. I love bigger, handmade statement pieces on the day to day, but more than those, I love the more simple and meaningful pieces one gives or receives.
I've been lucky enough to team up with Gemvara to offer you guys a pretty amazing giveaway opportunity. And while jewelry may not be an everyday topic around here, beautiful, love filled jewelry means a lot to me. And even more so--- to be able to choose to share the gift of creating something special for just my mother and I. We have very different taste when it comes to jewelry and style, but we both somehow, separately fell in love with a similar looking ring on Gemvara. As different as our styles are, we both always seem to fall back to black for (wearable) color choices. Also, I'll be honest, it wasn't really planned at all, but I was more than pleasantly surprised to see how perfectly the ring matched my wedding and engagement band ;)
We're heading up to Massachusetts in the next few weeks and I can't wait to share our matching rings with my mother. I know it means a lot to me to be able to do this with her, and I'll assume it means just as much for her ;) We’re different in A LOT of ways, but I’m happy to share this with her. But in the meantime, I'm excited that Gemvara has offered one lucky ohdeardrea reader the opportunity to win a 1000$ gift certificate to choose their very own piece for themselves (and/or someone they love of course!).
