When I was a teenager, my lifelong love for jewelry began when my mother and Godmother would gift me fine jewelry for the big moments in my life, such as birthdays and graduations. I would receive earnings, necklaces, bracelets, and other unique pieces that would represent a milestone in my life. Whether it was my sixteenth birthday or my High School graduation, I would have something to commemorate that. Each of these special pieces I still have to this day and every time I put them on it takes me back to those special moments in my life. Gifted jewelry empowered me to buy jewelry for others. Then, my son being born created a whole new love for buying jewelry for myself.
