I often think to myself, “I have the best job in the world.” Not only do I get to select beautiful fine jewelry for the store, custom design special pieces for my customers, but also I get to be a part of some of life’s most precious occasions and holidays. From engagements, to weddings and birthdays, anniversaries, babies (more to come on that in a bit), and holidays – we see it all at Mystique.
Of course, our next big day to celebrate is Valentine’s Day and love is in the air at Mystique. Carolina Chavez has been with Mystique for more than three years and will celebrate her three-year wedding anniversary this summer. Her wedding was one of the most gorgeous I’ve seen and full of every romantic thing you could imagine…think fireworks, a private island in Aruba, and a wedding entrance escorted by local dancers dressed in all white.
When Carolina stopped by the store the other day, she brought big news with her. She is expecting a baby boy! See what I mean? We are coming back full circle. Wedding, babies, romance. It’s what we love at Mystique.
While Carolina was here (and glowing!), I asked her to model some of my top picks for Valentine’s Day. If I had to describe Mystique’s jewelry in three words, they’d be simple, elegant, and everyday. We want you to feel comfortable wearing your jewelry every single day. It’s an investment, so why not wear it!?
In this look, Carolina has on one of my favorite necklaces. I call it the sexy lariat. This necklace is in 18kt yellow gold and holds round brilliant cut diamonds in a flower shape.
Then, I selected the Provence pave lateral stone earrings by JudeFrances. Our JudeFrances collection is one of the most versatile because you can create a new look with different charms and frames. For a pop of red on Valentine’s Day, bring out those rubies! Or pink tourmaline. The ring pictured here is a 14k white gold pink tourmaline (2.3 ct oval) with a halo of diamonds.
Here, we stacked the brushed Provence bangle with one diamond quad and the delicate diamond bangle, both by JudeFrances…
…then added a statement ring, an Etruscan cushion shaped Kunzite (3.7ct) with diamonds.
Rose gold is the perfect shade for Valentine’s Day. Pictured on Carolina is the delicate rose gold and diamond chain necklace.
Then, show you are lucky in love with the four-leaf clover diamond ring (available in white gold and yellow gold) or the vine of love ring in 14kt white gold (pictured below).
If you are a pink girl, these rose quartz earrings are for you. 70.35ct in 18k rose gold with .55ctw diamonds.
All of these pieces can be worn every day and layered in new ways to create a special look for daytime or nighttime. So drop a hint to your sweetie that he can skip the chocolate this year and head to Mystique. Love is always in the air at Mystique. Let us help you celebrate it.
