The Perfect Push Present

 

What is a push present?

No, it is not a present that you push onto someone. While a push present actually DOES have something to do with pushing… it is probably not the kind of pushing that first comes to mind. Think about pushing a baby out of a woman’s uterus and you are on the right track. A push present is a gift a father gives to the mother after the birth of their child. This present may be given before or after the birth or even in the delivery room. Push presents have recently gotten more and more popular in the United States. The meaning behind giving push presents is that moms deserve a little something special after going through 9 long months of pregnancy and then grueling labor.

Purchasing bridal jewelry is the perfect time to invest in fine jewelry! If you are the simple yet modern bride why not invest in affordable luxury jewelry you can wear long after your wedding day?  It will be well worth the splurge, enjoyed for as long as you choose and be a constant reminder of your special day! Once you decide on your dress and hairstyle, the next step should be selecting your jewels.

First, decide on one or two pieces that you will get the most use out of, then decide on your budget and finally choose the style of jewelry that will compliment your wedding dress. There are several bridal jewelry designers to chose from. Take out time to do research and make a list of what matters most to you. For example, locally made, handmade, recycled materials, organic, classic or vintage designs, ethically soured stones, etc.

Thanks to the internet we have so many options to choose from so set aside time to browse the web. Try to order your jewelry 6-8 weeks before your wedding day, as many local and handmade brands are made to order. The perfect jewelry will not only compliment your dress but will be around for many years to enjoy and can become a family heirloom for the next generation. Weddings can be expensive and stressful so make sure to treat yourself to something you can enjoy long after your special day!

Check out a few simple pieces that would be perfect for your special day from our Coral Collection. The Maggie lariat, Diamond lariat, Rose studs and the Saree ring are great options. Simple and modern, these pieces are great for the beach bride.
