Gorgeous Heirloom Jewelry from Julia Parker Designs

** Holiday Gift Guide 2014 **

When I give jewelry as gifts, I look for pieces that are unique, special and have meaning. After all, I am not all about just “giving” a gift…I want it to really be a memorable gift that I give to a loved one.

Today I am going to introduce you to Julia Parker Designs where all of the jewelry is handmade with high-quality materials, impeccable craftsmanship and well, just plain beautiful!

As you all know, my daughter Jenelle got married last month. I wanted a unique gift to give to her…something that she could wear now and then pass down to my beautiful 5 1/2 year old grand daughter who is a complete diva!

Julia sent me 2 gorgeous Mother Daughter Bangles to review for all of you. These bangle bracelets would make the perfect gift for any mother, daughter, best friend or sister. We just love them!

Each bangle is made out of fine silver which means 99.9% silver which means they won’t tarnish like sterling silver. Due to being made out of fine silver, they are malleable and you can shape them to your own wrist size and shape for a more customized fit.

They are really unique looking and organic in their shape. No two of them are exactly alike, so you are getting a one-of-a-kind piece by a very talented jewelry artisan. You can wear one at a time or buy multiples and really stack them up. I love that they can be worn casually, to the office or for a night out on the town.

When ordering, you want to read their guidelines on how to obtain the perfect size for your wrist or that of your gift recipient. They are available in a regular, hammered, textured or an oxidized finish. The bangles will come gift ready and with a note explaining the concept.

I had planned on wearing one to the wedding and having Jenelle wear one too. However, I was retaining a lot of fluid (new medication) at the time and couldn’t get mine on. Instead, Jenelle wore both of them at her rehearsal dinner and at the wedding reception. They are a little big yet for the diva…but once she is older, Jenelle is going to split up the set and give one to her daughter to wear. Hence, Mother & Daughter Bangles! I just love that concept!!!

    These are beautiful bracelets. I like how you can order them in different textures and sizes. I wonder about the difference in the look of textured versus hammered.

  2. She has the most beautiful and interesting jewelry! I am loving the Herkimer diamond studs!!
