How to Celebrate Golden Moments at a Distance
In the past two months I have watched on Zoom, House Party, FaceTime, text threads, Marco Polo and Skype as babies have been born, birthdays have been cheersed, and graduations and weddings have been postponed.
Our current quarantine has proven to us that a celebration does not need to be a physical gathering. We can evolve our definition of celebration quicker than we change our sweatpants. Herein, three milestones that can be marked by a great piece of jewelry no matter your level of physical isolation.
FOR A BIRTHDAY...
Do something out of the (quarantine) ordinary. It could be going on a hike, having a picnic on your living room floor, putting on a dress and heels (hey, that is out of the ordinary during quarantine), or opening up that bottle of champagne that has been sitting in your fridge for way too long.
The important thing is to do something that differentiates your birthday from all the other days spent in quarantine; to take the time to celebrate it, despite the limitations. Also. Gifts. C’mon. It is a birthday after all. How about something sleek like the Herringbone Chain Bracelet that you can wear every day? Nothing says here’s to another trip around the sun like a little full-circle shine.
FOR A WEDDING...
While birthdays come once a year, weddings come around a lot less often and thus involve a lot more hype, pressure, and tears (both the good and bad kind).
So we say relax on the drama and take the missed wedding day as an opportunity to focus on you and your partner. Re-watch the movie you saw on your first date, (attempt) to bake your wedding cake, say a preview of your vows to each other. Hell, put on your dress if you want! There are no rules in quarantine! And since weddings only come around (hopefully) once in a lifetime, we say go classic and memorable. And on that note, have you met our Baguette Diamond Open Ring?
FOR A GRADUATION...
While you might not get to prance around all day in a cap and gown this spring, you can still take stock of what you or your loved one has accomplished. One way to commemorate it? With a simple yet standout piece of jewelry you can wear every day. The Blue Topaz Duo Studs are a colorful reminder that the future sure looks bright.
