Over the weekend, I had a real #FOMO moment…although I didn’t realize just how much I missed out on until later.
A little backstory. This past Saturday, I received a text from a friend about a local jewelry store having a trunk show. The words jewelry store and trunk show are usually music to my ears. But if you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (@livinginsteil), you may know that I have my weekly kickboxing class on said day (and some inside information — I’m usually not too productive thereafter). So we bagged the idea of venturing out to the trunk show on Saturday afternoon and decided to have a summer BBQ instead.
The day came and went, but I had the sneaking suspicion that we missed out on something good. With no hard evidence to back those feelings up with, I decided to browse the jewelry designer’s website. And there it was. My worst fears confirmed.
One look at Lagos Jewelry and you will understand the oohing and aahing that accompanied viewing each item as I perused their website. If you’re a fan of David Yurman, you best check Lagos out. I was immediately impressed with the craftsmanship, bold stones, and array of designs that they offered. Is it too soon to be making my birthday wish list?
The Caviar collection and line of unique turquoise rings, bracelets, and necklaces immediately caught my eye. But it was the stones in the pieces that had me sold — from Lapis Doublet to Abalone Doublet — these were some of the most exquisite colors I have ever seen.
I spent the remainder of that evening dwelling on missing out on the trunk show, but consoled myself with the knowledge that I found a new jewelry designer to love.
