I’ve never really bought into the idea that “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. When my mother would take me shopping as a little girl, my eyes would zone in on classic pearls. In fact, I still have a pearl necklace that I wore at my eighth grade promotion. My thinking was back then that diamonds were reserved for rich girls who wore pink and had white poodles. When hip hop artists started wearing diamond-encrusted jewelry back in the 90’s, I was turned off by all the “bling”. I even told my fiance that I didn’t want a big diamond engagement ring, although I have to admit that on occasion I would dream about it :)
Well, alot has changed.
My friend presented me with a gift recently - a diamond tennis bracelet. I was awestruck by its beauty. It suddenly made me realize my own self-worth. Could this bracelet be a reflection of my own beauty? Have I come to attract these finer things in life because they are manifestations of my appreciation and love for myself? Have I come to accept the things that I had resented as a young girl like other girls who wore pink and took their poodles with them everywhere?
I decided to test my new-found appreciation for diamonds and browsed through TraxNYC’s website (), a playground and shopping haven for anybody who likes a little sparkle and shine in their life. I felt like I had entered a new dimension of the jewelry world. Why had I denied myself this world? After all, God created diamonds, so why not appreciate these miraculous works of beauty?
One of my favorite pieces from the TraxNYC website is the butterfly diamond bracelet made of 14K white gold pictured above. They also carry men’s diamond jewelry in case you’re looking for a nice Father’s day gift!
