This is a post of many colours...and by that I mean there are several intents? facets? things to see? and, just literally, colours. festive colours! First off, item of business number one ( just can't seem to lay off the puns today) is to review/ show off this bracelet Anjolee Jewelry sent me. I was allowed to pick out the style and color of my bracelet, and I decided to go with this one:
I picked peridot for my gemstone of choice, first because it is my birthstone (raawrrr, Leo's), second, because it would match the vintage peridot ring Ryan surprised me with for our one year anniversary (he buried it in a box in the backyard and had me go through this elaborate treasure hunt to find it....which involved getting boba drinks at our favorite place and having the shop owner plant a clue on my cup- seriously, straight to my heart) , and thirdly because peridot is green, and if I chose to pair this jewelry with red, I'd have a christmassy post on my hands.
and so here comes Christmas in New York, you guys. Post vibe number two. I took this lovely little bracelet out for a spin to the most festive place I could imagine. Welcome to Rockefeller Center.
I couldn't be more delighted with this darling little bracelet. The light green peridot catches the light and sparkles so nicely, and I love how well it goes with my ring! I really like that even though it isn't vintage, it definitely has the delicate, timeless feel I look for in jewelry to match my clothing choices. The clasp is incredibly sturdy and intricate too, which is great because I don't feel like I'll ever have to worry about it falling off. I also tend to like very thin jewelry, whether its a ring with a very thin, delicate band, or necklace with an almost invisible chain, and this bracelet is the perfect thickness for my liking. I love how much it classed up my whole outfit for the day!
and look how well it photographs with the Christmas lights!
Anjolee's website had plenty of other options to choose from. I was eyeing the classic diamond bangle bracelets for their elegance, but there was also a more casual looking bangle bracelet section. I'm really happy with the gemstone bracelet I picked out though. I love having a classy birthstone bracelet to match my birthstone ring, and I had so much fun pairing it with a dark velvet dress and red tights and lipstick for a classic holiday feel. So lucky the weather allowed me to cavort around without a coat!
