One of the great privileges of running this blog is connecting with like-minded women across the globe that I would likely have never met in everyday life. Whether it’s a quick conversation in DM’s about a shared passion or catching up over coffee and realizing we have a world in common the connectivity this platform brings is one of my favorite aspects of sharing a part of my life online.
Over the summer I started following a small, female-founded jewelry brand on Instagram called Haverhill. The owner, Haverhill Leach, comes from 5 generations of jewelers and fashions her handmade gems in her home state of Rhode Island. I loved following her snaps of carefree summer travels up and down the New England coastline and we connected over and shared love of beach roses, quaint coastal towns, and the sea.
She eventually offered to send me a few pieces from her collection and it’s funny how someone you’ve never met can become a part of your daily life, because ever since she sent me a pair of birthstone necklaces and white quartz earrings in September I’ve almost never taken them off. They’re as classic and timeless as a button down shirt and your favorite jeans, and if you look closely, you can see them worn here, here, here, and here.
I’ve always gravitated to simple jewelry, and wore pearl earrings and no necklace almost exclusively before receiving Haverhill’s gift. I love the versatility and durability of these dainty designs. Each piece is made of 14k gold (or sterling silver!) and semi-precious stones (I chose white quartz and blue topaz) and is truly something you can wear everyday. Now, that I’ve had them for over two months they still look brand new without tarnish or patina despite wearing them in the shower, pool, ocean and while working out – which makes them ideal adornments whatever your plans may hold.
With Christmas around the corner, I can see her customizable birthstone necklaces or bracelets as a beautiful gift for a mom or grandmother done up with sentimental stones representing loved ones. Simple and elegant in a design every woman will love, each necklace can be set with up to 8 different stones and each bracelet can be set with 7.
Even though every piece is made custom, most orders ship within 5 days and Haverhill has shared a special discount for my readers. Use “Stacie15” to receive 15% off your order, and I bet they’ll be one of the few gifts your loved one never takes off.
Thanks to Haverhill for the beautiful earrings and necklace, and to you for reading!
