From a young age, I remember fawning over my Mom's beautiful collection of earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings. I felt just as excited as she was when my Dad would come home with a little Blue Box, knowing that one day, whatever was in that box, would be mine. Just one of the perks of having parents with really fabulous taste. As I got older, my personal collection began to grow. When I became a Bat Mitzvah at 13 years old, I received my very first piece from Tiffany and Co., an extravagant, although not uncommon gift for young Jewish girls growing up in the luxuries of Miami Beach. Don't worry, these gifts were never anything I took for granted. I'll never forget the chain lock bracelet I received from a loving relative, and it was years before I took it off and tucked it away into a jewelry box.
My love for collecting jewelry has certainly not waned. I've always understood how lucky I was to get to wear Tiffany and Co. from such a young age. The presents and hand-me-downs I have been so fortunate to receive are special both for their beauty and the meaning behind each special gift from a loved one.
Now that I'm older, my love for fine jewelry has grown and I'm able to treat myself to my own little blue boxes, just in time for the latest collection from Tiffany and Co. -- the HardWear collection. The Collection is so to my taste that I would swear the fiercely feminine pieces from this collection were made specifically for me. Because of my edgier style, sometimes the classic look doesn't really work with what I wear. Wearing jewelry is, of course, very personal. However, the new Tiffany HardWear pieces carry wide appeal. They are elegantly understated, fitting me and my personality just right.
Next time you're looking to treat yourself, or a special someone is hoping to surprise you with a gift, be sure to check out the Tiffany HardWear collection. Don't be surprised if you end up falling in love with the Blue Box and what’s nestled inside
