Consider Helen Ficalora for Your Graduate

It's graduation time! All the kids are graduating and they're heading off to bigger and better things. Hopefully college or in some cases a J.O.B. I remember when my oldest graduated high school a year ago. It was a rather stressful month for me, between choosing a dress for prom and a graduation gift. Usually I like to get something that she can cherish forever, and while a gift card is sometimes the easiest to get, sometimes you need something a little bit more. Something with sentimental value that they can pass down to their own kids when they get older. Something that says "my mom, or dad, gave me this on my graduation day and now I'm passing it on to you". You want something with sentimental value. How about a great piece of jewelry? I have pieces of jewelry, that while I don't wear them, they mean so much to me that I can never part with them EVER. That's where Helen Ficalora comes in. She has something for you and your graduate that you will both love.

Here's a bit about Helen Ficalora and her timeless pieces:

Her signature designs inspire beauty, love and peace. Timeless pieces crafted from beautiful yellow, pink and white gold with diamond accents reflect an appreciation of nature and organic form. The collection resonates with individuals seeking unique and customizable jewelry that expresses their personal story. Featured frequently in the media Helen Ficalora pieces are a favorite among celebrities for their refined and alluring qualities. 

With stores in New York, Beverly Hills, Chicago, Dallas, Bridgehampton and Palm Beach, if you're within driving distance of a store I would suggest checking them out. If not then you can also shop online.

Now I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. What I found inside was another equally beautiful jewelry box and nestled inside was the scalloped shell charm that I requested, on an 18" fine chain. I was totally wowed by the presentation. I've purchased jewelry for my oldest daughter from that blue box company and we all know how expensive they are. Their boxes are nothing like this.

My daughter LOVED her necklace. It reminds her of the Caribbean where we spent Christmas last year. The sound of the ocean and of course her grandpa and grandma. The delicate chain that it came with is actually not so delicate. When I first saw it in the photo online I thought, I can probably pull on it and it will break. I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that it will not. I actually did pull on it because I wanted to be fair to you my readers. If you're going to spend your money on something that you want your loved one to have for a long time, you want quality, and this is quality.

I am loving all her pieces and Helen Ficalora has some of the most beautiful charms. I even decided to share a few of my favorite pieces here with you today. Whether you're looking for something that reminds you of summer, or your favorite activity or even something for good luck, Helen Ficalora has a piece for you.

  1. The Starfish Charm - Available in White, Yellow and Pink Gold
  2. Midnight Melody 
  3. Butterfly Coin Charm - Available in White, Yellow and Pink Gold
  4. Bicycle Mini Charm - Available in White, Yellow and Pink Gold
  5. Piano Charm - Currently Unavailable
  6. Beach Treasures 
  7. Pave Horseshoe Mini Charm - Available in White, Yellow and Pink Gold

I couldn't be more pleased with our jewelry selection and I actually have intentions of getting another just for myself. My daughter has claimed this one as her own and I don't blame her. When you find something of quality and great value, you hold on to it and you never let it go. It's why Helen Ficalora and her timeless jewelry pieces gets our TWO THUMBS UP!
