Fall is the season for new beginnings and new friends. While I can be a shy guy at times, I’m reminded how rewarding it is when I connect with new folks…or dare I say strangers. As a result of these recent encounters, I met a jeweler in Boston whose children happened to go to college with me and a woman who works for one of my favorite e-commerce sites.
If you’re shopping for an engagement ring or other special piece, you should check out the jeweler – 3rd generation family-owned, Freedman Jewelers, located in downtown Boston. Or follow them on Pinterest if you’re looking for bridal jewelry and wedding style inspiration. What I love about this story is that they’re constantly innovating and the owner’s daughter took a risk to leave law and start a charm jewelry line, Samantha Faye, that’s perfect for new moms, moms and daughters, or anyone who wants to add a lighting bolt of genius to their life.
It really is a small world. Make time to get out from behind the computer and connect in real life.
This weekend I enjoyed the last days of summer on the beaches of Maine. It’s time to store the rope bracelets and all things anchor for next season. I’m looking forward to bringing out a sterling silver perfume amulet I received when I was 13. While these protective charms aren’t too common, there are some great new ones around from Free People and Talon, and vintage versions like this YSL charmer. Don’t forget to try the other spelling, “amulette,” when you start your search.
Wouldn’t one pair fabulously with a long-sleeve crepe gown like this Stella?
