Point blank: I’m an emotional person. Like, I cry a lotttt - and not because I’m sad, but because I just get really intense feels. And in the past two years, since I’ve become a mommy (and gotten pregnant #hormones), I’ve reached an all-time cry record 😭. So much so that my 2 year old, upon watching my sister/his auntie’s wedding video last week, turns to me, wipes his face, and says “mommy, I so emotional.” #DEAD. In any case, I say this all, because I’m such a fan of Erin Pelicano fine jewelry and the motherhood/family/love/loyalty messages that are woven into each of her pieces. She just unveiled a brand new mother-daughter necklace set in time for Mother’s Day, and we have to say, it’s sooo much better than flowers.
We’ll ‘open up’ about the gift a little later on… but in case you needed an Erin Pelicano refresher, here goes.
This #momboss (she has three of her own) found her calling when she starting creating gorgeous heirloom jewelry that comes from a deeply heartfelt place. She crafts keepsake jewelry - rings, bracelets, necklaces, even cufflinks, from lace, veil portions, fashion artifacts that may have never been used again - if only looked at, endearingly. The treasures that transpire embrace and give new life to forever-cherished family fabrics. The jewelry is stunning, too, you’d want to wear everything on its own already, but the fact that it was minted with meaning just makes it all the more special.
You might remember we shared a bit about her custom heirloom collection last year, and for brides getting married this year - you can cross #somethingold and #somethingborrowed off your list AND wear something that you won’t want to take off even well beyond your wedding day.
In fact, why not use Mother’s Day this weekend to tell mom (or your soon-to-be Mother-in-Law) that’d you’d love nothing more than to incorporate an element of her past into your future fashion debut - her own wedding dress, segments of her veil, maybe even a swatch from the dress she was wearing when she said “I love you” for the first time. Anyone have chills yet? 🙋🏻 It’s such a sweet token of your appreciation, gratitude, and unconditional love, and believe us, even though she won’t see anything until after Mother’s Day is over (the custom jewelry can take 4-6 weeks in production time), we can bet that the IOU for your wedding day will be gift enough (even though you’ll technically be asking her to give YOU something, right?!!).
Sure you’ll do some snooping on your own to figure out how to do something like this with Erin Pelicano! 👉 Heirloom jewelry how-to. But just to get you started, here are the steps up front!
- Choose and purchase your Jewelry Style, most are available in 14k yellow, rose or white Fine Gold.
- EP will email you the Heirloom Jewelry package, instructions (all shipping included).
- Gather your fabric swatches, and ship your package to EP.
- Once received, your modern heirloom will be created masterfully to last a lifetime.
- Allow 4-6 weeks for production and shipping.
- Your jewelry will ship with a signature required for delivery (because, yes, these pieces cost some, but really they’re priceless).
Fresh roses are nice, but roses in gold say a lot more to mom.
… Something along the lines of “Mom. It doesn’t matter where I am. I’m yours.” If you’re a bride, your mama is undoubtedly thrilled that you’re getting married and so happy you’ll be starting a new chapter in your life - but, she’s also reminded that you’re beginning a future with someone new, someone who isn’t her. Giving her a gift like Erin Pelicano’s new rose necklace for beauty & love will let her know that even though you might be taking a new last name, moving somewhere else, sharing holidays with another half of your family, you’ll always be her girl. Forever.
We love that this set can be shared, too, one for mom and one for you. You can even add additional ‘daughter’ pendants for your sisters or future sisters-in-law!
