The One Who Made the Best Decision

“I’ve always LOVED jewelry and I am in the very beginning stages of a divorce. I haven’t worn my engagement/wedding rings in over 6 months...I tried for the longest to convince myself they did not make me who I am as a grown woman and mother. After 6 months I finally decided to replace that with the Self Love Pinky Ring so that it can be my daily reminder that ME and my son are it. And if I prioritize myself a little more, then my son truly can get the best parts of me all to himself.🔻I tried to...

A Pinky Promise to Support Social Justice

2020, so far, has been a year of drastic change. Some good, but a lot scary, different, and uncertain. Compounding the global Coronavirus pandemic have been nearly three months of protests surrounding the unjust deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, and countless others, from police brutality and systemic racism. The change being asked for is coming, sometimes in drips, sometimes in waves. But the fight is difficult, especially for Black women and girls who are often cast in the role of savior, even though all of us should be doing our part to achieve the transformative change our country...

The One Who Is Ever Changing

"My ring, ever-changing in its colors, shining so brightly one moment then dark and rich the next, is my reminder that change is beautiful and how deeply I feel is not a flaw but a gift. Because if I can know such levels of sadness over the years, imagine the extraordinary levels of joy I can reach. My ring is my reminder."

Shalini's Pinky Promise to Herself

Two words. Eight letters. Say them and you’re all yours.  Self Love.  Looking back at the twenty-five years that I have been around, it amazes me to think that it took me so long to embrace this concept. Self love is complex, but it is also very simple. It’s a lot of effort that you have to put in to become the best version of yourself, but it is also defined by the small moments that make you who you are. Overall, I like to think of self love as a balancing act between those big formative steps and the...

The MINE Necklace Makes A Bold Statement About Belonging

I'm so proud to launch my latest product, the MINE necklace. The MINE necklace makes a bold statement to the world about belonging.  What does it mean to belong? It is both a matter of possession, and inclusion. We spend much of our lives seeking to belong- to a person, to a group. And sometimes in that pursuit, we relinquish our autonomy, our worth, our very wholeness with ourselves. This statement necklace tells the world, I am MINE. Is there a more powerful statement to be made? When you wear it, you take possession of yourself, and responsibility for yourself....

The Alexandrite Self Love Pinky Ring Is Here (June Birthstone Ring!)

At long last, and after many requests, the Alexandrite Self Love Pinky Ring has arrived and she doesn't disappoint. Pictures simply don't do this gem justice. Perhaps the most magical stone we've introduced yet, the color-changing Alexandrite mysteriously shifts from a dreamy blue to a rich purple depending on the light.  While Alexandrite is the June birthstone and represents our Gemini and Cancer sisters born in June, it's the perfect choice for anyone who is navigating a period of change (basically - all of us). The chameleon-like Alexandrite is connected with concentration and learning. It is a reminder that change is the...

The One Who Came Back to Life (With a Vengeance)

"In 2018, I went through a terrible breakup when someone I thought I trusted. It was so bad that for months I didn’t know who I was. I felt like I had lost myself and my creativity. I deleted all of my social media and completely isolated myself with the exception of Pinterest which helped me heal and find myself again. One day while pinning to my narcissistic abuse and self love recovery board, I stumbled across a Fred and Far pin. I IMMEDIATELY visited the website and wrote to Melody to thank her for advocating self-love. That was a pivotal...
