Passover Protection

With it being Passover, I figured today would be a good time to celebrate my Jewish half. I mentioned in a previous post how I grew up in a Jewish/Catholic house, coloring Easter eggs and eating matzo all while watching Charlton Heston part the Red Sea. Just your average Passover/Easter holiday at the Cohen’s!

I figured it was time to pay homage to those roots with some cool Star of David jewelry! You don’t often see a lot of edgy, interesting designs featuring symbols of the Jewish religion, the way you do with crosses. Over the years crosses have become almost more of a fashion statement than a symbol of faith.

When I designed my line of Good n’ Evil Protection pendants I decided to include everyone, because we can all use a little help every now and then! So, whether you need some help making it through dinner with your family, or a little help dealing with the fallout after, these tongue-in-cheek pendants might be just the thing for you!

Keep It Simple Boys

diamond-hearts-black-large

Jewelry, chocolate, perfume, yoga mat…YOGA MAT??? That’s right, one year I received a yoga mat for Valentines Day. That same boyfriend later gave me a pillow, salad chopping kitchen shears (yeh, think it was an “as seen on tv” thing), a computer and a heart rate monitor for other holidays. I know, you’re probably wondering why I stuck around after the yoga mat, I guess I was hopeful.

His reasoning behind all of these super romantic, oh- so- sentimental gifts was that since I was a Gemologist and worked in the jewelry business he couldn’t possibly buy me any jewelry! WHAT??? That’s insane!!! Yeh, why would you give the girl who’s crazy about jewelry, spends all day around it, eat, sleeps and dreams about it, any jewelry???

Just keep it simple boys. Don’t over think the gift giving, and don’t try to be too original. Stick to the classics, and jewelry is a classic for a reason, WE ALL LOVE IT!!!! The big jewelry companies have already done the work for you, now you just have to fork over some cash.

Diamonds studs are always a great choice, but incase you aren’t sure if she has her ears pierced, you can never go wrong with a pendant or necklace. Bracelets and rings can get tricky too if you aren’t sure about the size she wears. But,feel confident knowing that as long as it’s sparkly and comes in a velvet box you can’t screw up too bad!

Happy shopping, Valentines Day is only two weeks away!
