Falling in love with my birthstone

July 8, 2016

I’ve never really been into my birthstone–February baby, thus amethyst, thus purple. I remember trying to get into it, forcing purchases when I was younger, but I don’t think I ever appreciated it–like, that’s MY birthstone. It can be hard to find a piece of jewelry with your birthstone that you genuinely happen to love. Thennnnnnn I discovered the birthstone collection by Fox and Beaux. And my life changed–literally! I wear my birthstone necklace every day now (I’m trying to remember what I wore before it).

I recently collaborated with Fox and Beaux, a new accessories and handcrafted, fine jewelry boutique in Asheville. Not knowing what to expect when I walked in, it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with everything–the boutique itself, layout, design elements, rings, necklaces, accessories and just the whole vibe. (It’s not hard to–find out for yourself, in case you missed it!)

They told me to pick out a piece of jewelry. Overwhelmed like, oh my goodness, what am I going to pick!, I knew it was game time and I had to make a decision.

I carefully browsed the whole store but ended back at square one: their original birthstone collection. #noregrets

Lauren Moody, owner of Fox and Beaux, on their birthstone collection: “We wanted to create a birthstone collection that was simple but meaningful. Not everyone loves their birthstone, so we created our birthstone dangle necklace to showcase birthstones in a unique and understated way. This necklace has quickly become a customer favorite because it is a great everyday necklace and perfect for layering.”

Nailed it.

Ummmmm that, miss Lauren Moody, you have done! I’ve been wanting the perfect necklace for layering, and I’ve been wanting a meaningful piece of jewelry with my birthstone. A favorite, my birthstone necklace has become indeed. As she says, it’s perfect for layering, or wearing by itself. It makes a statement without trying–which I think is my favorite part. It’s just a bonus that it’s my birthstone and adds that much more of a personal connection to it.

It’s classic, it’s timeless, it’s versatile and unique. What more could you ask? Stop in Fox and Beaux in downtown Asheville today. Shop the collection online via Etsy or Fox and Beaux, or customize your birthstone necklace–with your stone, gold and silver metals and more–and contact them directly! I know you will love it as much as I do! Xx
