Customer Profile : Laura




 Who are you and where do you live? 

My name is Laura, I am a former employee of Rebekah Brooks and I currently live in Brooklyn.

What are you up to these days?

I am an attorney for a Wall Street law firm during the week.  I am an amateur chef (for my fiancĂ© or anyone else who comes to my kitchen) and avid city-wanderer on the weekends.

What inspires you? 

I am planning my wedding at the moment, and am currently very inspired by anything that focuses me on the simplicity and essence of love and marriage.  Whether it’s a song, a color or a taste, its anything that reminds me to take a step away from the fluff and focus on what really matters to me.

Vintage or Contemporary?

Both. I love a good contradiction.

How would you define your personal style?

I like to be comfortable without being boring.  I like very classic pieces that have a bit of a twist, or to wear contrasting pieces like ripped denim with a sequined jacket. 

How did you discover Rebekah’s jewelry?

I met Rebekah and her family right before her first store opened in Northampton.  I worked in her store for a year before I went to law school.

Do you have a favorite piece & why?

Rebekah designed my engagement ring, and found the champagne diamond I had always dreamed about.  I have been wearing it for nearly 8 months, and I still stare at it for at least 20 minutes a day. 

She also designed the most beautiful gold leaf earrings that she lengthened for me to accentuate my neck.  Aside from my engagement ring, I can’t think of another accessory that I feel completes an outfit of mine better. 

What keeps you looking good?

8 hours of sleep as often as possible. I drink as much water a day as I can.  And I get cardio in by dancing in the kitchen with my fiancĂ© in the mornings.



* Thanks to Laura for doing this, it is belated going up on the blog & she is now no longer engaged, but married! Congratulations and wishing you both a lifetime of health & happiness xo

Beautiful Ladies

Northampton is the diverse & bustling hub of our Happy Valley, and it's also a small town. We're always flattered to run into women wearing the jewelry, especially when they don't often know it was us who created their adornments. This weekend we were out shopping and then having dinner & kept running into beautiful women with lots of style who looked so great we just had to photograph them.

Pearls!

The word Pearl has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable - and for good reason. The birthstone of June is both timeless & beautiful and we'll be offering 15% off all pearl jewelry this weekend, June 5 - 7th - come celebrate!

Victorian Coral Necklace

This gorgeous coral necklace sold before we could get better pictures but we've decided to share it anyway. This is hand carved natural coral from the Victorian era with those deep orange-red hues we're always on the lookout for. The color of the stone will actually change (a bit) depending on how much it's worn & what your ph balance is. Rebekah has a coral ring from the same period that she wears everyday & has gone from a lighter orange to an incredibly deep red. Part of what makes this necklace so special is how each 'tooth' on the strand is completely unique. More like this soon..we hope!
