True story, years and years and years ago I went to a party in Malibu. Nothing fancy, just some friends and possibly jello shots—it was that long ago. I started chatting with Ariel Gordon, who I had just met through mutual friends, and the first thing I noticed was the amazing jewelry around her neck. I immediately asked her about it and she said, “I made it.”
We hit it off and from that moment on we’ve been friends, growing businesses alongside each other, having babies and collaborating throughout the years. I still wear my very first AG piece (the Love Knot Pinky ring) everyday and continue to grow my collection/obsession. And, every time I see her I find myself taking notes on her layering skills and wanting whatever it is she’s wearing.
The best part about Ariel’s collection is that all of her pieces are things you can wear everyday, or even sleep in like I do. They’re special, meaningful and will quickly become a defining element in your style. Every piece I own holds significance from the Signet Dog Tag necklace—the first piece I ever got with my married initials—to the Dual Birthstone Ring representing Elin’s and my birthday months. At age 3, Elin is already asking to try them on and knows the pieces that have her name on them—she’s got her eye on my newest Candy Carousel necklace. I can’t wait to pass them down to her one day. Needless to say, any piece from Ariel Gordon would make any woman, mother, sister, grandmother or daughter feel infinitely loved and special.
I’m so excited to be giving away one $500 credit to Ariel Gordon Jewelry.
