As a kindergarten graduation present to myself (yessir, my son graduates kindergarten, and I am the one that gets the present #logic), I bought myself a diamond ear cuff. Now that everyone is back to wearing multiple pierces (a la 1990s), I wanted to go back to my 16 year old self with five ear holes (#truth) and a piercing in my ear lobe. Thing is, I didn’t want to re-pierce them myself, or actually go to a tattoo-piercing-store again (Did that, done that), so instead I went the cuff route. And I am giddy with excitement. It is not just any cuff… it is a high-class, super-fancy, DIAMOND cuff. Check it out, egad, I am in love.
Bat-a-bing! Ca-ching. (And yes, I feel slightly overexposed with the close-ups of my neck hairs, ear fuzz, and freckles. Don’t mind the zoom on the camera).
I had the cuff made at a jewelers so was able to make it exactly how I wanted. Yellow gold, white diamonds, exact sizing. So many options.
I explained to Ken that, no, I didn’t get my ear pierced again (I had it pierced there when I met him 13 years ago), but that it was a removable earring. The time that I did get my ear pierced in that location, I was at a tattoo shop, ended up fainting, and woke up to a big burly dude standing over me asking me if I was okay. I am now deathly afraid of getting my ears pierced. I was in so much pain from the piercing that I fainted #StrongLikeOx
Teeney tiny, actually. Oh so cute.
Different angle. Same #oversharing ear hairs.
The look (with no make up, face washed, and the true face of an overtired and overworked mom….hence a present to myself)
The look again (with my head turned to other direction….which apparently didn’t help my tired look).
No link I can share with you, but I am sure any local jeweler can replicate the above. Fun, right?? I couldn’t be happier and plan on rocking this cuff for a long time. I am embracing this trend for as long as it is around.
