Jewelry for the New Mom

While we specialize in bridal jewelry, it is only natural that once our clients get married the next step is starting a family. Many of our clients have returned upon becoming pregnant to have us create baby shower invitations, baby announcements and jewelry for mom, baby and proud grandma.
We work with Meaghan Elliott Photography not only as our referral for wedding photography, but to take pictures of our jewelry and she is a fantastic photographer. Her attention to detail is amazing. She recently took pictures of my daughter for her first birthday!
Back to the subject at hand.. Mom to Be, New Mom, Proud Grandma, or know someone who is...check out our jewelry to celebrate baby! As with our bridal jewelry, everything is custom made with the colors of you choice, length of your choice and we gift wrap! Check out our etsy site to see detailed pictures.
Visit our boutique at 300 E Fort Ave for more new mom/baby gifts. We carry Tree by Kerri Lee and of course would be happy to do custom baby annuncements or shower invitations.
We love to celebrate the special moments in your life...nothing is more exciting than getting married and having a baby...let us help you celebrate!

Jewelry-The Perfect Bridesmaid Gift

Below is an article from Bride &, which explains why Tu Vida Jewelry & Design is the perfect place to customize your bridesmaid gifts:

"Your bridesmaids have thrown you a blow out engagement party, some fantastic showers and a bachelorette party that was over the top. They are trotting across the country to be in your wedding, and doing it all while wearing bridesmaids gowns of your choosing and biting their tongues if it isn’t their favorite color or style. One gal is probably nine months pregnant and paid more to have the dress altered than the original retail price. They are the dream team of attendants, and they deserve that special gift that tells them how much you love them and appreciate everything they have done to be a part of your big day. Here are some tips and ideas for some gifts as unique and fantastic as your bridal party!
Bridesmaids are not clones!
Passing off matched sets of jewelry, wraps or handbags that match their bridesmaid gowns and make you happy because they all look appropriately accessorized for wedding photos is more of a gift for yourself than it is for your girls. How about choosing jewelry or accessories that coordinate, but also ultimately compliment each attendant’s unique tastes? Something traditional and delicate for your older sister’s conservative wrist and a killer set of the hottest chandelier earrings for your best friend. Or find a company that can help you customize the perfect piece of jewelry for each bridesmaid individually or at a pre-wedding party. (of course that means, Tu Vida Jewelry & Design)
Personalize your gift
Whether it’s a make up case stamped with each girl’s initials and stuffed with all their favorite beauty products or a silver box etched with their name and holding a fun trinket or gift certificate for their favorite store, something that has been customized is always personal and shows that you put time and effort into pre-planning your gifts.
Stuff your gift with Surprises
Perfect for stuffing with everything from beach towels and sunglasses to bedazzled bridesmaids undies and bath and body products, everyone loves a tote stuffed with their favorite things. Each bag will look the same at first, but will contain tons of little surprises for each recipient. For those friends that are the serious Fashionista types, try doing a small accessory from a great brand. Pop in their favorite shade of lipstick or gloss and it’s a done deal.
Focus on their interests
Within your little clique, you probably have friends with interests, passions and personalities that range from tomboys to girly girls, scholars to travelers, and hopeless romantics to the painlessly practical. What better way to tie a theme together than starting each gift with a year subscription to their favorite magazine – whether it’s French Vogue, The New Yorker, Cosmopolitan or Better Homes & Gardens! Add a travel journal or photo album to the voyager’s travel mag and the coveted hard cover version of the summer’s hottest romance novel to the romantic’s publication. Spice up the chef’s cooking magazine with ingredients for the month’s featured recipe, and sponsor a donation for your politically correct friend’s pet charity along with her subscription to Organic Style."

So....when you are thinking about your bridesmaid gifts, keep in mind that we can personalize each gift to reflect your bridesmaids personality.

Happy planning and we look forward to working with you to create jewelry that makes a statement!!
