Do you know any woman that would not be pleased to receive a famous little blue box from Tiffany & Co. on Valentine's Day?
It's certainly a dream I share with many other woman all over the world. To tell you the truth, I often find myself wandering in a Tiffany & Co. store mesmerised by all the breathtaking pieces. It's such a legendary place filled with dazzling gemstones, iconic collections and beautifully designed jewels.
It's not surprising that the Tiffany designs are sought after by many museum curators in the world such as London's British Museum or the Louvre in Paris, just to name a few.
Just like Audrey Hepburn said it in Breakfast at Tiffany's: "Nothing very bad could happen to you there". That might just explain why Tiffany & Co. is such a great place to wander. Sometimes it's fun to wander when you are in love, when you are falling out of love, when you are longing to love again and sometimes it's simply inspiring to wander in such a magnificent place as Tiffany & Co.
I read somewhere that women love glamour because it's a way of escaping their reality. I don't know about you, but I can definitively relate to that!
When it comes to jewelry, I have always preferred dainty and timeless pieces. I like the ones that can easily be worn everyday, the ones that you put on and never really take off because they become part of your signature look. I think it's quite chic to have a few well chosen pieces that are personal and meaningful. It's even better when these cherished pieces work well together because they make you feel pull together.

Although Breakfast at Tiffany's was not filmed in my hometown, whenever I visit my store, I can't help but imagining Holly Golightly window gazing while munching on a danish. I think I was inspired by her flare and enthusiasm when I visited Tiffany's last week. Instead of gravitating towards delicate and classic pieces, I felt tempted by other pieces I had never really considered before.
While browsing through the various collections on display, I couldn't resist trying on the spectacular lavender amethyst cocktail ring shown above. This 7.25 carat ring is just spectacular!
Here are the other pieces I recently fell in love with:
|Paloma's Marrakesh bangle in sterling silver, medium. Paloma Picasso Loving Heart tag bracelet in sterling silver, small. Paloma Picasso Love & Kisses Mini Bracelet in Sterling silver, medium.|
|Tiffany Hearts pendant in RUBEDO metal, large. Return to Tiffany mini heart tag in 18k gold on a bead bracelet. Return to Tiffany small heart tag in 18k gold on a bead bracelet.|
|Ziegfeld Collection pearl ring in sterling silver and black onyx. Ziegfeld Collection black onyx tassel necklace in sterling silver and Ziegfeld Collection pearl tassel necklace in sterling silver.|
I often dream of receiving the coveted blue box, but I have recently embraced the idea of buying myself jewelry. While it can be quite thrilling and meaningful to receive this type of gift from a loved one, it is equally fabulous to sometimes treat yourself to a new piece of jewelry when you have a special occasion to celebrate. Like Valentine's Day!
