Auree have been my go to brand ever since my wedding back in 2018, when I gifted each of my bridesmaids with personalised thank you bracelets. I’m rather minimalist with my jewellery which means that Auree fit the bill perfectly, their collections vary from sterling silver, white, yellow and rose gold, and feature a variety of birthstones and engraving capabilities enabling you to personalise the pieces that mean the most to you.
In light of Grace being the third generation to join our family I knew I wanted to gift my mum with a piece of jewellery which could become a family heirloom and be passed down from daughter to daughter. The Russian Wedding Band was the perfect fit for my mum, a classic ring in yellow gold with bands 3mm thick which suits her personal style. But also the symbolism of 3 interlocking bands holds a lot of significance for me and our 3 generations. Having a daughter of my own has made me even closer to my own mum and I now appreciate her in a whole new way. I have a newfound perspective of our relationship and our new roles as both a new mother and grandmother.
My mum absolutely loves her new ring which is engraved with one of our names, she hasn’t taken it off, which is annoying because I’m desperate to borrow it already! However Auree did kindly gift me with a piece of jewellery of my own so I shouldn’t really be trying to nab the ring off her finger just yet. I chose the Brompton yellow gold bangle, engraved with our dates of birth, and enough space for any future children (although what a terrifying thought that is at 4 months postpartum).
My mums new jewellery sits proudly on her hand as a reminder that whilst she was unable to hold mine throughout labour we have a lifetime of memories to make now that Grace is earth side. Whilst Grace is already eyeing up my bangle as her latest teething toy. (No dice, little lady).
Thank you so much to Auree for working with me on such a sentimental and incredibly special project. You can read a little Q&A I did with them about my feelings on motherhood over on their journal.
