That first time he gave me jewelry... (+ a giveaway)

...just 24 days ago.

No, really.

I've been dating this man for almost a year and a half and have never received any jewelry.
Not like I was complaining or anything, I just chalked it up to him not being a jewelry kind of guy.
No big deal. End of story.
{Flowers on the other hand? Now that he's got down pat.}

But then, he did something quite surprising.

You see, 24 days ago, was the day we left the U.S. to embark on these wonderful world travels of ours.
We were on the plane, I think flying from Atlanta to our layover in Newark, and I got up to use the restroom.

When I got back to my seat, he had this cute little serious look on his face.
Then, I noticed this pretty little blue box in the seat pocket in front of me with this sparkly gold ribbon.

He told me that while he was in San Francisco a few weeks before, he found this little jewelry store that had one-of-a-kind pieces made by artists from around the world and that he wanted to get me something special to signify the beginning of this new chapter of ours.

Well, well...quite the romantic we got here, eh?

I love them. 
But mostly, I love that he spent several hours in that store looking for the perfect thing to get me and on top of that, managed to keep it a surprise.

A surprise, people! 
I'm the queen of ruining surprises, if you didn't know.
So kudos to you, Boo. I'm very impressed with you, you sneaky little devil, you. ;)

So anyway, that's my story.

And speaking of jewelry, I have a fun little surprise for you.

Perfect timing for the holidays, if I don't say so myself!

    2) I love your story... That was a darling surprise, for sure. My husband and I were together 7 years before he bought me jewelery, and guess what it was? An engagement ring! He swore the first piece he'd ever buy me would be the most special piece I'll ever own... He was right! :) Ever since, he's been buying me little jewels left and right!

  8. Those earrings are fantastic! What a sweet present.

  9. That is super duper sweet of him!!

    I've been dating my bf for 2 1/2 years...still no jewelry in sight! He says it's because he wants the first piece of jewelry he gives me to be that special thing that goes on my left hand...hmm. I'm not sure if I should take that as him being sweet or him just not wanting to buy me jewelry. Lol!

  10. How sweet is the Vdiggs! I bet you can picture him all thoughtful in the jewelry store, trying to imagine what you would like the most. Props to him!


  11. I would loveee to win me some jewels. And how sweet of the boo :) Adorable.

  16. Cute earrings, very romantic, and good job for keeping it a secret man! I like the Bubble Pendant necklaces. Such great colors!

  17. those are so beautiful! He has wonderful taste :)

  18. I was 24 the first time a guy gave me jewelry and I was ECSTATIC. But that's the only gift I've gotten from a boyfriend since and it's gotten rather old, and in my opinion unoriginal. I love that your boyfriend made it something very special, and he has great taste!

  19. I love the 5 bubble necklace in coral!

  20. Super cute, love the earrings too!
