Give the gift of personalized jewelry from Pictures on Gold

 

Have you finished holiday shopping yet? I haven’t. I have three gifts for my husband, and that’s about it. I have two gift ideas for our son, and one for our daughter (depending on how much it costs). I did purchase gifts for my co-workers and my son’s girlfriend, which is great because I don’t have to run around looking for last minute gifts for them.

I honestly don’t want people to think that their gift was a last minute thought, which is why I am happy I already have gifts for my co-workers. I want my family and friends to know that I DID give a lot of thought about their gift, and that it’s not just any old gift you can grab at the last minute at a local department store.

One way to show the person you a gifting that you put a lot of thought into their gift, and took the time to create it, is by giving them a gift of personalized jewelry.

Over the years I have posted reviews for the brand Pictures on Gold. I have always loved their jewelry and I still wear the pieces I was sent to review. Each one is special to me and contains photos of the people who mean the most to me in this world like my husband, our children and my family.

Here are some of Pictures on Gold necklaces that I have. PLEASE NOTE – it’s not easy to get a great photo of the inside. They look scratched, but they are not. They look so much nicer in person.

This is how one of the lockets looked on the computer screen as I was designing it.

I blurred out my husband’s name and our anniversary date for privacy reasons.

This year I was fortunate to receive another beautiful piece of jewelry to review. I was sent one of their photo lockets.

This year I knew exactly what photos I wanted to have inside – a picture of me and my brother John, and a picture of my cousin John. Both of them died within a year of each other. My cousin John has been in my life since I was a baby. He was more like a brother to me than a cousin. As for my actual brother, it took me 28 years to find him and I lost him two years later in a car accident. My heart is forever broken with the loss of both Johns.

For privacy reasons, and out of respect for both families, I have “fuzzed out” the images of both Johns (my brother or my cousin). I left my image so you can see it.

On the front I have a special quote engraved on it. On the back I have my husband’s initials (since he’s a very special person in my life too). I tired to get a good photo of the quote, but the reflection from my photo interfered with it and it was hard to see in the photos.

The locket comes with your choice of a necklace.

The necklace and locket come in a beautiful box, ready to give to the lucky recipient. The necklace and locket can also be kept in the box for safe keeping.

Designing your own locket is an easy and unique process that let’s customers use their creativity to create the perfect locket. It’s super easy to do, and all the instructions are laid out before you so you never have to question what you are doing.

What I love most about the designing process (aside from how easy it is), is that you can see what your locket will look like in real time. That means you don’t have to wait for it to arrive to see the finished product. You can see how it will look before it’s processed right there on my desktop and/or mobile device.

You also get to design the front, back, inside left and inside right of the locket.

The whole locket is a blank canvas, just waiting for your personalization with images, text and/or clip art (they have plenty of clip art to choose from).

Here is a link to the whole process – Design Your Own Locket:

Here are the steps:

  1. Customize the FRONT SIDE of the Locket by selecting CLIP ART from any category.
  2. Proceed to the next step to add a PHOTO to the left side. Choose to upload the file. You can center it yourself.
  3. Proceed to the next step to add a PHOTO to the right side. Choose to upload the file. You can center it yourself.
  4. Click on the next step to add a PERSONAL MESSAGE on the reverse side.
  5. Click on next step and choose an 18 inch Sterling Silver BOX CHAIN with a lobster claw.
  6. Click on next step to PREVIEW the finished locket before you add it to the cart.
  7.   In the preview mode you are able to see the completed locket
  8.   If you would like to make changes you can then make changes.

You don’t have to worry if you think the image is not sitting properly in the locket on your screen. The people at Pictures on Gold will make sure the image fits in perfectly. They will remove any white background, however, if you would like the white background kept in the image, write that down in the “special instructions” section of the order.

If you happen to have two people in the image you are using that are spaced apart, the people at Pictures on Gold will enhance the photo and bring the people closer together.

The images you choose are not photos stuck inside the locket. They are done with a color laser or laser, making them 100% waterproof (unlike a paper photo that can’t get wet). The image is also scratch-proof and guaranteed for a lifetime. Even the text you create is done with a high definition laser engraver.

Here is an example of how beautiful laser engraving can look. I love it!

You might think that designing your own photo locket (or any other piece of photo jewelry on their site) would take forever to be made and shipped out to you. That is not the case at all. Believe it or not, most times the jewelry ships out in ONE DAY! That is pretty impressive if you ask me.

There are so many details about this gift that anyone would love to receive during the holiday season. Being able to Design Your Own Locket for a loved one makes it the ideal gift.

If a personalized photo locket is not what you’d like to gift someone, Pictures on Gold has many other great jewelry options to choose from.

Pictures on Gold carries regular lockets, personalized fingerprint jewelry, medical alert jewelry, religious medallions, sports themed jewelry, name jewelry and more. They also carry necklaces, rings (even a toe ring), bracelets, wedding bands and more.

Give a gift with meaning this holiday season

 

Have you started shopping for the holidays yet? Normally I am done holiday shopping by now, but sadly, I haven’t started shopping for my family yet. Our kids are young adults now and all they want is cash or gift cards. Sigh… So far the only gifts I’ve purchased are for my co-workers.

I honestly don’t like to gift cash or gift cards. I don’t mind getting them as gifts, but giving gifts I would much rather give something tangible that can be unwrapped. Yes, I know, you can unwrap a gift card or cash, but it’s not the same as unwrapping a special gift.

I always try to put a lot of thought into gifts. I’m not one to follow what’s “hot” for the season. What is “hot” this season will be long forgotten come January 1st. I’m sure many people know what I mean.

I’ll give you some examples.

Last year our daughter and my husband got stuck in a really bad ice storm (thankfully our son was home with me). Our daughter was stuck in her car for hours. She didn’t have gloves, a hat, blanket… nothing to keep her warm. She was also starving and had no water. For Christmas I gave her a tote box filled with essentials – blanket, hat, a few pairs of socks, gloves, hand warmers, water, snacks, first aid kit, flashlight and more. I gift my husband something similar, but his included foods he could cook in the microwave (he was stuck at work) and a pillow (he had to sleep in the lounge).

Another year I gifted my husband a lot of Christmas Story products (from the movie A Christmas Story) including the Red Rider gun, Simonize, Little Annie Decoder Ring, Lifebouy soap and more.

I also like to do charitable things during the holidays. I donate a lot of toys to Toys for Tots, clothing for the homeless, and food donations.

There is a way you can gift a very meaningful gift AND help out people in need at the same time. Consider a gift from the World Vision gift catalog.

I have written about the World Vision gift catalog many times over the years. I appreciate the work that the organization does to help those who are less fortunate from around the world, including the United States.

World Vision has many different options to choose from. You can give gifts that directly help others, such as medical supplies, food, clean water, clothing and even animals that provide food (chickens for eggs, goats for milk, sheep for wool…).

You don’t actually purchase these gifts, meaning you are not going to have a goat show up at your front door. Instead, World Vision takes the monetary gift you use to purchase the gift, and they purchase the goat (for example) and deliver it directly to a family or village that needs it the most.

The prices for such gifts range in price, so there are plenty of options to suit any budget. I saw gifts as low as $12 (bible) and $16 (soccer balls) upwards to hundreds of dollars, even has high as $2,620 for twenty eight farm animals.

If you prefer gifts that you can give to others (or keep for yourself), consider World Vision’s handcrafted gift options. The money used to purchase the gift goes where it is needed the most, and in return, you receive a beautiful, handcrafted item (or items) that you can keep for yourself or give to others. It’s a “win-win” situation all around.

Some items available for purchase include jewelry, home decor, holiday ornaments and coffee, to name a few.

One of the newest additions to the World Vision handcrafted gift selections is the Grace Collection by actress Patricia Heaton.

I adore Patricia Heaton. I met her once, many years ago in Los Angeles. She is so sweet! She’s very down to Earth too. She stared in my all time favorite sitcom, The Middle. 

Last year she had designed the Hope bracelet. This year Patricia introduces a beautiful bracelet, necklace and scarf. called The Grace Collection.

The Grace Collection by Patricia Heaton was designed by Emmy® winner Patricia Heaton, exclusively for World Vision, and handmade by artisans in India who are thriving through fair trade business.

“Even when I’m not with my sponsored child, Gracious, I feel connected with her. I designed the Grace Collection as a wearable reminder that we are all bound together, like the branches of a tree; the roots flourishing when we care for each other. The necklace, charm bracelet and scarf in the collection have a simple, contemporary elegance that signify how one act of generosity can light up an entire community.” – Patricia Heaton.

World Vision was kind enough to send me all three pieces to check out for myself.

I have been wearing the bracelet a lot since I received it to review. It’s lovely to look at and it feels very comfortable on my wrist. I have a thick wrist and sometimes bracelets are too small. This one fits just right.

The bracelet is approximately 9″ round, made with glass beads (1cm round), gold-tone iron ring and tree charm (3/4″ round) on an elastic thread. Each is unique – size and color may vary slightly.

The elastic thread ensures the perfect fit on almost any wrist.

I love now it almost has two different looks to it. One side of the bracelet has soft, almost like a Robin’s egg colored blue, beads. The other side has a metallic look to it. The lovely tree charm finishes the look, and acts as a bridge from one side of the bracelet to the other.

I really like the necklace a lot too. Most of my necklaces are 18″ – 20″ in length. This necklace is 24″ in length with a 2.5″ extender. It is made with a gold-tone alloy metal that will not tarnish.

Now that the colder weather is here, I tend to wear tops with a higher neckline and sweaters. This necklace looks great on whatever I wear. It is also one of those pieces of jewelry that works well whether you are running errands around town, at work, or a night on the town.

I’m not really a scarf person, so I gave the scarf to my daughter. It’s not that I don’t like it (I do!). I just don’t wear scarves (my daughter does).

The scarf is made from 100% viscose, approximately 21 1/2″ wide x 59″ around. The cuff is 8.5″ long x 3/4″ wide leather strap with a nickel-free silver-tone buckle.

I like the strap/buckle on the scarf. It’s unique. You get a beautiful blue/green colored scarf with a strap that looks like a watch strap (in a good way). I like it. You can also remove the strap if you don’t like it, or if it doesn’t match with your attire.

These pieces are sold individually, as well as a three piece collection.

It’s important to note that World Vision gifts are tax deductible (refer to each item for the amount you can deduct).

If you are looking for a gift that has meaning and purpose, consider a gift from the World Vision gift catalog.

To find the various gifts (such as hand crafted), look at the gray bar at the top of the page, and use the arrows on the side of the gray bar to move back and forth.

Should Engagement Rings Always Be Diamonds?

 

We live in modern times, don’t we? I believe that you know the answer to that question already. Or, is it that you’re not satisfied with the answer you came up with? If you’re planning to propose to the woman of your life soon, then I can really understand why you’re getting so worked up. This is the woman of your dreams, after all. The one person you want to spend the rest of your life with. If at all possible, you would want everything to be perfect. You would want to set a mood that is so perfect she would have no other choice but to say yes.

Wait, isn’t that just coercion? Well, even if it is, I guess it’s the good kind so most people would just let it slide.

All jokes aside, proposing marriage to someone you like is a pretty big event – if not the biggest. Most people get one shot at it and most people would prefer to actually just have one shot at it (if you know what I mean). To finally come to a decision that you wish to spend your life with someone special is an incredibly great feeling. And you’re just hanging there, hoping that they feel the same way. Here are some tips for your big engagement: https://www.thespruce.com/make-your-engagement-special-3489777.

But before you even try to propose an engagement, you first need to have something to propose with. This is where most guys tend to get stuck. Just thinking about the woman of their dreams and their future together puts too much pressure on them I guess. But this uncertainty, this feeling of wanting everything to be perfect, is just another sign that shows how much you value this person in your life and how much you would want to keep them by your side. And I think that’s beautiful – so beautiful, in fact, that I can’t just sit and watch you tormenting yourself with the tiny details.

So you need to propose, huh? Well, engagement rings seem to be the traditional way to do it. Diamonds, especially, have become synonymous to marriage proposals.

Do I Have To Propose With A Diamond Ring?

In the movies you watch, books you read, and stories you hear, men always seem to propose with artistic engagement rings. For centuries, people have romanticized the idea of giving diamonds to women. They gave it meaning and soon enough, it became the norm. A diamond ring is a traditional gift men give women when they ask for their hand in marriage. But does it have to be a ring?

Well, not necessarily.

Contrary to what other people may have told you, there’s really nothing in the law that enforces a man to always propose with a diamond. It doesn’t have to be a ring either. You can propose with a bracelet, a pair of earrings, a house and lot, or a pair of socks for all people care. Your proposal can be symbolized by anything you want. In fact, I’ve seen people get creative when popping the big question so I’m pretty sure that you’re allowed to go wild with your proposal. What matters most is that you choose something that is special to both you and your partner. It should emulate the kind of relationship you have.

Still, you might be thinking that you should pop the promise of forever with a diamond ring right? Well, if that is what you believe can make your girl the happiest, go for it! I can think of several reasons why you would want to do so.

Why Still Propose With A Diamond Engagement Ring?

Both the diamond and the ring shape actually symbolize something that is very meaningful to couples. They both represent “forever.”

What do I mean by this?

Certainly, you have heard of the phrase “Diamonds are forever” right? Well, they really are – like literally. The diamond crystal is a very formidable compound (read more). It’s impossible to break using normal means and it doesn’t wear down no matter how much time passes. That’s forever. As for the ring, you’ll notice that it has no sides, right? It just goes on and on in an endless turn. There is absolutely no stopping point. Again, that’s forever.

This is why the diamond ring is the perfect symbolism for a marriage proposal. You’re promising forever to your partner. Isn’t that the sweetest?

Jewelry to Make You Feel Like a Hollywood Star

 

Each year at the Oscars, even though winning is the main event, it’s fair to say that one thing all viewers are focused on is the bling and sparkle draped over the luxurious celebrity attendees! Unfortunately for all of us, a lot of this amazing jewelry is out of the normal price range, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t look a million dollars if you find the right pieces. We have scoured the internet to find some sensational trends that can do just that. Here is some jewelry to make you feel like a true Hollywood star.

Statement Earrings

Sometimes it is a good idea to substitute huge expense for huge size! Statement earrings are a simple way to pack a lot of punch with your accessories, and the different designs on display from brands like Alessandra Rich jewelry show you just how diverse and interesting the looks can be if you choose the right pieces. Large hoop design earrings, in particular, are a very on-trend design in Hollywood right now.

Fake Diamonds

If we’re being totally honest, the only people who can tell fake diamonds from real ones are those with professional eyepieces and experience! Don’t feel like you can’t accentuate your jewelry collection with costume pieces that sparkle just as brightly as the real thing. It all looks amazing when put together in a stunning outfit.

Chunky Gold Chains

Continuing the chunky theme, big statement gold chains are a huge Hollywood trend at the moment. From your neck to your wrist, gold chains are very fashionable right now, and the general consensus seems to be the bigger the better! Don’t be afraid to really push the boat and go outside of your comfort zone with thick chains.

Pearls

If you are going to spend Hollywood style money on one item of jewelry this year, make sure that is on a wonderful set of pearls. Everything in fashion is cyclical, and it seems as though the time has come back around for pearls to be front and center. Pearls deliver the perfect blend of style and sophistication.

Broaches

Exude some of your style and personality in the form of a beautiful broach. Much like pearls, they evoke a golden age of glamour, something that those in Hollywood are always keen to bring back.

Hopefully this has helped you to see that even though you might not be banking the same kinds of checks that Hollywood royalty does, you can still look just as glamorous and timeless thanks to clever jewelry purchases. There is nothing to stop you from achieving red carpet levels of style from the comfort of your wallet.

Make a statement with Amorcito jewelry

 

PHOTO SOURCE: Amorcito Jewelry Facebook Page

Are you into wearing jewelry? I used to be as a teen and young adult. When I became a mom that all changed. I ended up not wearing any jewelry, except my wedding ring, because my kids would constantly be tugging on things and either breaking necklaces off my neck, or trying to yank earrings out of my ears.

Now my kids are young adults, so I can wear jewelry again. Sadly, many of my pieces of jewelry have either been lost, broken or I’ve given away. I only have a basic “supply” of jewelry. Just simple stuff that I can wear to work and running errands.

Sometimes I like to make a statement with how I dress. There are some days that “ordinary” just won’t do for me. I also like to switch things up a bit. For example, I might get dressed up for work (where I work, casual attire is fine). Or I might put on fake eyelashes to go to work instead of my normal mascara.

When it comes to jewelry, I don’t really have much that is “snazzy” and that will jump out at your. I have a few necklaces that are a bit “different,” but that is about it.

There is a jewelry brand that offers consumers pieces that are unlike anything you have seen before. These are not your department store type of jewelry. This is jewelry that is sure to get noticed when you are wearing it.

The brand is called Amorcito. It means “sweetheart” in Spanish, and when it’s translated into English it means “little love.” That is the nickname that was given to the jewelry’s designer, Vanessa, by her husband.

Vanessa’s designs are minimalist and artist. Her creative line is perfect for fashionable women, or people like me who like to have a few statement pieces in their jewelry box.

Amorcito is dedicated to assisting victims of domestic abuse, with a portion of their sales benefiting No Silence, No Violence. Every piece in the Azuma collection is inspired by “A Flower for a Flower,” to protect the vulnerable and encourage the opportunity to bloom once again. 

I love that the brand is not only helping out victims, but I also love the “A Flower for a Flower” idea.

To give you an idea of what kind of jewelry designs you can find on Amorcito’s website, here are a few examples. These are photos taken from the site.

Those side hang earrings (pictured above) are awesome. I’d love to try something like that, but not for work (I can see the kids I work with tugging on them).

I also love that pretty flower ring.

Most jewelry is available in gold, rose gold or platinum plating.

Amorcito was kind enough to send me a set of earrings to review. I was sent to review her Celestial Dangle earrings. These particular earrings are only available in a gold plating. I tend to lean more towards silver, but I do like to keep a nice assortment of gold pieces available as well, because some outfits go better with gold jewelry than silver.

These earrings are long. I can honestly say that I’ve never worn long earrings before. They took some getting used to, but eventually I did. I’m still aware that I am wearing them, but that is not a bad thing. In fact, it’s a good thing. That way I don’t forget they are on and accidentally grab them when I am pulling my hair back. That could hurt!

I don’t know who would look best in these earrings, someone with short hair or long hair? Don’t get me wrong, BOTH long/short haired people would look great in these earrings. I’m just wondering if they would stand out more with someone with short hair.

Here is me wearing the earrings. I’m holding my ear forward so you can see the top of the earring, where it goes in your ear. Otherwise my ear made that part turn to the side and you couldn’t see it in the pictures.

I’m also wearing the earring in my second hole. That’s just my personal preference. If I wear just two earrings I use my first and third holes because my second holes are too close to the first ones. For that reason I don’t use my second holes as often. When I wear these earrings I wear them in the second hole so that the hole doesn’t close up.

These earrings really stand out, as you can see. I have received many compliments on them. I can honestly say I think just about every time I’ve worn them I’ve received a compliment on these earrings.

I thought these earrings might feel heavy in my ears, but they don’t. I don’t notice I’m wearing them because of the weight, it’s more so because they go down to my shoulders.

These earrings are very well made. I have worn them many times without any issues.

The earrings also come with a larger back piece (to hold them secure in your ear). I guess it’s larger due to the larger size and weight of the earrings. I love the back because when I drop it on the floor I can actually see it whereas the little backs are nearly impossible to find.

Price wise, Amorcito might be a bit pricey. I believe they are in the $21 – $88 range, with most items between $40 – $60. That’s honestly not that bad for quality jewelry. They also have sales, so the site it worth bookmarking and checking back from time to time to see what is on sale.

If you are interested in seeing more pieces of jewelry from Amorcito, visit Amorcito.us. Notice it’s .us and not .com.

The brand can also be found on social media. All of their links are found on the bottom right of their website.

Beautiful and Affordable Jewelry from Twice Shy

 

I used to love to wear jewelry, and a lot of it too. As a teen and young adult, I would not leave the house unless I was wearing all my earrings (I have three holes in each ear), a necklace, bracelets and rings. During short season I would wear anklets too. I also liked to match my eye glasses, such as the kind you can find at SmartBuyGlasses. Of course, this is the same time in my life when I would spend an hour or more getting ready doing my hair and make up.

Fast forward to about 22 years ago when I became a mom to our oldest. I was a stay at home mom, so I didn’t bother getting “all dolled up” in the morning. Make up and wearing jewelry was not a priority at that point.

I still wear jewelry, but not as much as I used to. A lot of it had to do with my weight. I’m a “plus size” lady and at my highest weight I didn’t bother with my looks as much. Don’t get me wrong, I always look decent (I’m not a slob), but doing up my hair and wearing make up just didn’t seem the same.

I have lost about 50 pounds over the past year or so (yeah me!). As a result, I care more about what I wear than I did before. Yesterday I changed my bottoms three times, and my tops six times, just to find something I looked OK in. I have clothes in so many sizes right now that I find stuff either too snug, or too “frumpy” looking.

In addition to being more conscientious about what I wear, I have also been wearing jewelry a lot more. I have some necklaces, bracelets and rings, but what I don’t really have are earrings. I can honestly say that I have not worn earrings in about 20 years. I don’t even OWN earrings anymore, except for a few pairs, and they are mostly little studs.

Two of my three holes in each ear I can barely get earrings into. They holes have not closed up, but getting earrings in them are not that easy. Thankfully my original holes are OK, and I am able to fit earrings into them with no problem.

Now that I can wear earrings again, I need more. So I have been on the look out for affordable earrings. I especially like earrings that are unique and interesting. I like earrings that catch other people’s eyes.

Check out the earrings at Twice Shy (all images are from the Twice Shy website).

I love that these earrings are unique and very beautiful.

These earrings are made out of gold,  titanium, steel and silver (please refer to each piece for specific details). Some of the earrings at Twice Shy are also nickel free.

When I say affordable, I truly mean it. My family lives on a tight budget, and even I can afford these earrings. The ones pictures range in price from $13.00 – $16.50. Currently there are pairs of earrings on sale for as low as $6.50! It’s part of the brand’s end of summer sale.

Twice Shy carries studs, hoops, drop earrings (dangly ones) and even ear cuffs.

Twice Shy was kind enough to send me a pair of earrings and an ear cuff to review. I received to review the Vivienne Heart Earrings and the Nova Ear Cuff.

PHOTO SOURCE: Twice Shy

The Vivienne Heart Earrings are so pretty! They feature three hearts in various sizes. Each heart is completely done up in what I can only assume are rhinestones (they are not diamonds, even though they look like they can be). These are made out of sterling silver (both the earrings and the post).

I was afraid that these might be a little too fancy, but honestly, after wearing them out and about (and receiving a lot of compliments) I think these are great earrings to wear to work, on a night on the town, out to dinner and even running errands.

My Vivienne earrings and ear clip (see below for ear clip review)

I find these earrings very comfortable to wear. I honestly didn’t even feel that I was wearing earrings. Sometimes I forget I am even wearing earrings until I catch myself grabbing them when I am pulling my hair back.

I’m sorry that the picture is not the best. Hopefully you get a good idea of what these earrings look like and their overall size.

What would you expect to pay for lovely earrings like this? Thirty dollars? Forty dollars? What if I told you these gorgeous earrings are only $19.50! Nice!

In addition to these earrings, I also received the Nova Ear Cuff to review.

PHOTO SOURCE: Twice Shy

I’ve been wanting to get my upper ear pierced (I believe it’s called “Helix”). I haven’t taken the plunge yet. Until that time I thought that the ear cuff could give me the same type of look, without actually committing to getting a hold pierced there.

The ear cuff is really pretty, as you can see. But I have not wore it that many times, or for long period of times. It’s just that I am not used to wearing one, so it’s more noticeable, to me, when I wear it. There is also a few times my hair has got stuck on it and I’ve accidentally pulled it off when I grab my hair. It’s more so because I am not used to wearing one, so I forget about it when I pull my hair up or move my hair and glasses around. It’s more so just being aware that I am wearing it.

The Nova Ear Cuff can be seen on the upper ear area in this photo. PHOTO SOURCE: Twice Shy

I think in due time I’ll be able to wear this with no problem.

I like that it’s shown me what it might be like to have an earring in that general area. I like the look and I’m going to go for it when I have the money.

This cute little ear cuff is only $12.00 on Twice Shy’s website.
