I am not really one for sentimentality or keepsakes, but this one got me good.
Once I was pregnant with Louise, I started keeping an eye out for initial necklaces, knowing that when she arrived, I would finally do the thing I had been thinking about and get a nice piece of jewelry with both kids’ initials. And while I found different styles here and there, nothing ever felt like it would be what I was hoping for. Then I was introduced to AUrate – fine jewelry, no concessions – and my little wish came to fruition.
Their collection of necklaces first caught my eye given their minimalist gold jewelry aesthetic, which is very much my preference. As a low-key jewelry wearer, I always gravitate towards the simple and the subtle and that is very much AUrate’s style.
With that, I now have a necklace to wear daily, no matter what or how I am dressing. Coupled with the fact it has both an H and an L that sit so lightly and perfectly together makes it all the better. I love that I now have a piece of real 14K gold jewelry that means and stands for so much. Such simple beauty, such a lovely piece, and such a meaningful sentiment to wear. I sincerely love it.
