Sometimes it’s the little things we say and do that can make all the difference in a relationship, especially when it comes to moms and their daughters. Fun loving, positive, and a ray of sunshine, this mom and daughter trio brought the energy to our shoot. We chatted about style, music, and all things jewelry, and hands down, I had a blast laughing with these stylish ladies.
Rima owns a beauty salon
and so it goes without saying that she always looks put together and then some. Describing her fashion sense as “fun, class, and all kinds!” she can rock anything like her current fave Dior, slay a shopping spree on Revolve, and everything in between. But when asked what her most treasured piece of jewelry is, she answered, “my wedding ring.” The humility and love that radiates from the gift of connection, lifelong commitment, and intimacy was felt and that is the power of jewelry.
Her daughter Sara, real estate agent and laidback, self-proclaimed simple fashionista was asked the same question and lo and behold, a similar answer was extracted. “I love my Cartier hoop earrings. I got them as a gift, and I never take them off.” Because when you give the gift of jewelry
, it’s the moment, the memory, the person, that is cherished not the piece itself. However, I’d like to think that if the piece is stunning, then you hit the gold mine (pun intended).
I love designing and creating jewelry and I think one of the biggest reasons is not just the artistry, but rather the moments I am hopefully creating. By giving the gift of jewelry, my pieces will stand the test of time and hopefully even transport people into a space of connection and memory, which is precisely what happened when I asked Shadin
what her favourite piece from my collection was. “The I See You
earrings reminds me of my mother because of her belief in the evil eye. Throughout our whole lives my sisters and I have worn a piece of jewelry with the evil eye to protect us from bad luck and energy.” And just like that, a new memory is made. Treasuring her tennis bracelet, a gift from her
father to her mother, Shadin
is a girl after my own heart! Splurging on sneakers, indulging in chocolate, and adding Who’s that Pearl
necklace to any casual outfit to add some fun, she Shadin reminds me a lot of myself.
As my own personal memory and takeaway from our time together, I’ll share with you the words of advice that Rima has imparted on her children: “Always keep your head up high, always give your best with no pretending, love with open arms, and be true to yourself always and forever.” And I’ll add: and give the gift of memory with a killer piece of jewelry!
