Best for last, in celebration of my recent birthday and the holidays, my parents were generous enough to have supported my next major purchase:
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II in 18K Everose (Rose Gold) + Stainless Steel Jubilee Bracelet, Domed Bezel, Silver Dial and Diamond Markers
This is my first “grown up” watch and after much contemplation between Cartier and Rolex, I finally settled for the latter which was custom-ordered from Switzerland. It was supposed to arrive just before Christmas, but the dealers were able to expedite the shipment to me several weeks before just in time for my birthday! As I’m about to venture into a new era of my career soon, I can’t help but feel that a decent watch would be the best investment for a very exciting future.
In my life, I’ve had doubts and fears as do many people, but I’m so thankful to know the wonderful friends around me, mentors and professors who have guided me, and of course my family who have endlessly supported me. Although there may be depressing cases at work everyday, I always come home feeling blessed and fortunate to be living my own life which may not be as glam or wealthy as others’, but I think I’ve matured a little more over the last year and am able to appreciate for things that in the past I did not. (Oh that’s bad grammar with a long run-on sentence… lol)
Thank you all again for letting me share and happy holidays everyone!!! 😀
David Yurman Classic Cable 5mm Sterling Silver Bracelet with Blue Topaz and Diamonds
Got this to match my DY Albion blue topaz ring 😀
Sydney Evan Shy “Laugh” Bracelet with Diamond Accent in Sterling Silver and 14K Rose Gold Plating
I was able to get this at 50% off which is a great deal for this brand. As cute as it is, the diamond is very tiny… I thought DY used small diamonds, but this is barely existent…
Max & Chloe Costume Jewelry:
I like Sydney Evan‘s bead bracelets, but I don’t really know if they’re worth the money… I thought it would be best to experiment with some inspired jewelry pieces first. Max & Chloe is an online jewelry retailer that offers a lot of fun, trendy pieces at affordable prices and relatively good quality. They also have fine jewelry but I’d rather buy from more established brands at those prices.
“Laugh” beaded sodalite bracelet in 14K rose gold vermeil with cubic zirconia (CZ)
Script “Love” ring in 14K rose gold vermeil and CZ
Script “Love” bracelet in 14K rose gold vermeil and CZ
Diamond Bar Bracelet in 14K Gold Fill
This was a custom order from Etsy because most retailers have too long of a bracelet which makes the bar dangle and flip around. I like it tight and properly fitted to my small wrist. It does take some effort putting it on, but the result is much better than a bracelet that’s too loose.
