When it comes to jewelry, I have two extremes – expensive and personal. I steer clear of costume jewels, opting instead for high-quality gems and metals or something meaningful and personalized. Recently, I was introduced to Racholly jewelry – a small business specializing in customized, personalized jewelry.
Rachel, who owns the company, started an Etsy shop in 2008 and slowly grew into her own jewelry design company. She specializes in celebrity and designer inspired pieces using high-quality materials. She truly loves what she does, and it is evident in the beauty and quality of the pieces she makes. I love that so many of the pieces are affordable, yet beautiful and delicate. They look much more expensive than they are, and that little touch of glamour is very refined!
My favorite collection – the “Dot on the Map” collection – features US states, countries, and lattitude/longitude. I love that these pieces are sentimental and mysterious. Where is that exactly? Why is it so special?
Racholly Jewelry was so kind to make a very special piece for me – my “England” necklace. The intricate cut out of England is simply decorated with a small crystal, delicately placed on my boyfriend’s hometown of Cambridge. When the piece arrived, I was blown away by the quality and beauty of the piece, but also by how much it meant to me. It is an elegant way to take him – and his family, our memories there, my love for England, and my love for Cambridge – with me everywhere I go. It is now a favorite piece and even after many wears, looks just as good as the day I received it!
