a journey into jewelry

When I was younger, I was gifted a pair of gold earrings from my grandparents. For no particular reason
really. It was one of those presents that I just “needed” as an Indian girl growing up in an Indian
household. What I wore almost was a representation of how my family was doing. So I wore those earrings.
Never took them off even when I slept. As I continued through elementary school, my taste started to
evolve into more simpler versions of gold earrings (they looked incredibly Indian, by the way). But
come middle school I decided to take my own route.

My parents gave me $10 to use at the mall with my friend, Clare. Clare and I perused Claire’s,
naturally. The place where pre-teens hung out and found their personality through layering questionable
jewelry made of faux metal and colorful strings. I got myself a nice fake pair of pearl studs. And I
wore those everyday of middle school until they were so worn and disgusting that my mother forced
me to get rid of them…

That started my journey into jewelry. Today, my jewelry collection is limited though abundant
in quality and not the Claire’s earrings stock-like. With age I went from wearing solely silver to
rose gold then white gold.

So it only seemed fitting to bring out my once-gifted Skagen watch when this beautiful silver-based
bracelet was sent over to me. Remember the silver age? That was when I was in college. I only wore
silver and pearls with silver hints. So I set aside my standard simple gold ring and assortment of little
gold studs and went along with crafting an outfit around the beaut of a cuff.

    I love that you featured jewelry made with the Larimar stone. My mother’s family is from the Dominican Republic and I’ve been there a few times. I fell in the love with the Larimar stone a few years ago and I love knowing it’s something special to my family’s home country. There’s something so calming about the blue and white swirls — like listening to ocean waves crash. Such a beautiful stone! I recently purchased a larimar ring made with white gold and it’s my favorite piece right now.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your story, Amy! I do agree with you! The stone has such a beautiful, elegant look whilst exuding elements of peace and serenity. I think it’s a stone that looks beautiful on all skin tones. I’m now going to dig through my familial archives to see if we have any such connections too! x
