tLike most humans, I too love jewelry. I love to get new ones every now and then but there are some pieces that I find myself going back to. The decision whether I’m going to wear gold or silver changes quite often. Sometimes I feel like I want to wear all silver or sometimes I mix and match.
I originally prepared a part of this when I was in Stockholm 5 months ago. I took the pictures and somewhat planned what I was going to write but when I heard that my uncle passed away, I totally forgot about it until today. Today, I got the chance to have a coffee with the designer of two of the rings you will see here from Seen Pieces, Seda Şen. I had so much fun talking to her, hope she feels the same way hahaha, and that reminded me of this post and I decided to share it now. Never too late am I right?
A little disclaimer. Since I planned to share this post in February, some items may be out of stock now and I don’t know if they will be restocked.
I debated whether or not to include this necklace to this post since I had just got it when I took these pictures. I loved it so much that I had to mention it and also the store that I got it from, Sjals Karlek. Something about that little shop made me cry when I went in. It’s in Gamla Stan, very close to the Nobel Museum.
Whenever I wear this necklace, it gets a lot of attention but it’s actually my initial in Eastern Armenian. It is silver and has black diamonds. It was given by my uncle a couple of years ago as a birthday gift.
These are my most worn necklaces. When I was a kid, I was so obsessed with my dad’s necklace that had a cross and a lion on it. My parents and I are all leos and we really love lions, so I asked for a lion pendant and a cross for my birthday. Unlike my dad, I like to layer them. They are from a local goldsmith and the chain of the lion is actually used to be my aunt’s before I asked to wear it.
You could see this ring and the one after this in my mirror selfies that I used to post from our Airbnb and I was surprised how many of my friends asked me where I got them from. This is Carla by Seen
And this is Lisa by Seen.
This last piece belonged to my grandmother. I now wear it as a memory from her.
A second part to this post about my earrings may or may not come. Stay connected.
