I remember the day I got my favorite piece.
It held so much joy and pain all at the same time. 4 and a half years ago my husband and I lost our youngest daughter. It was so hard on our family…I can’t put into words how much we miss her. When I first started working at The Vintage Pearl I saw our men’s leather cuffs and like everyone else immediately fell in love with them. I knew right then I would have to buy one for my husband with Gabby’s name and our oldest daughter Bella’s name on it. It was absolutely perfect for him. It said everything so simply and he loved it. The only problem is just having the girls names on my necklace wasn’t enough. It took me about 6 months before I decided on the piece I call my favorite. I went to our design manager with my idea and asked her what she thought and to my surprise she had it stamped and made before I could even think twice. I’m so thankful because it’s perfect…
My secret message heart stamped with “I’ll hold you in my heart until I can hold you in my arms” is by far the most beautiful piece of jewelry I have. I often joke with my friends that if I ever lost this charm it would be like losing my wedding ring. I feel like I hold Gabby close to my heart every time I wear it. It’s so much more than a simple charm. It’s a part of me and my love for my princess angel in heaven. I’m so excited to see her again one day…but for now I’ll hold her in my heart.
What’s your favorite piece?
