About Me

A Birthday Surprise

In a few, short weeks, my mom will celebrate her sixtieth birthday. Sadly, my mom’s health hasn’t been the best lately. In fact, she is currently recovering from a recent surgery. To show her how much I care about her, I want to buy my mom something special for her birthday this year. I’m shopping for a beautiful, emerald pendant. I want to buy a pendant to match the ring my dad bought my mom a few years ago. Because the princess cut stone in the ring is set in white gold, I would also like to find a pendant set in white gold. On this blog, I hope you will discover the most popular cuts of emerald jewelry. Enjoy!
