    One Ring To Rule Them All

    We’re going to talk Lord of the Rings today ladies and gentlemen.

     

    Raise your hand up in the air if you love Lord of the Rings!

     

    Now, I know you are asking yourself, “Why is this person talking about Lord of the Rings on Gunderson’s blog?” Well, keep reading and you will find out.

     

     

    For those of you who do not know, The Lord of the Rings is a STORY that revolves around Frodo Baggins, a hobbit, taking a RING to be destroyed from Dark Lord Sauron. That is the extremely water-down plot.

    So, let’s break this down. A STORY revolving around a RING created one of the best selling novels ever written. Yes, a piece of jewelry.

     

     

    My point (and the point of this entire blog) is stories and jewelry go hand in hand. Just as Bilbo Baggins passed down the ring to Frodo, jewelry can be passed down from generation to generation along with the stories they hold.  Jewelry holds the power to connect across the barriers of time.

    Jewelry allows individuals an artistic way to share their story. One brand that truly embodies the art of story telling through jewelry is Heather B. Moore. Heather B. Moore creates customize charms, bracelets, and necklaces to represent your story. By using freehand techniques, Heather B. Moore can replicate a child’s drawing, a signature, a fingerprint, or anything you can imagine. These allow you to create conversations and stories that you can pass along to your children or grandchildren.

     

     

    Gunderson’s Vice-President, Breanne, customized her Heather B. Moore necklace to represent her greatest loves in the world: her daughter, Harlow and her three pets.

    Gunderson's Vice-President, Breanne Demers, customized Heather B. Moore necklace.

    Breanne explained the story behind her charms, “I got my daughter’s actual footprints stamped onto a charm with her name, date of birth, height, and weight. She was born in April, so I added her birthstone. I count my three pets as my “adopted kids,” so I put a dog bone with Rosko’s name. For my two cats, I had a charm with a paw print and their two names printed on the back.”

    I Want My Wedding To Be Featured In Vogue

    “I want my wedding to be featured in Vogue and my work in the New York Times.”

     

    These are the words written across my social media accounts and just so happen to describe me perfectly. Fashion is my obsession, coffee is my addiction, and reading is my love.

     

    Hello, my name is Elizabeth “Liz” Price and I am Gunderson’s new Social Media Strategist. In simple terms, I create content based on Gunderson’s jewelry, watches, and gifts. My job combines a girl’s two favorite things: diamonds and social media.

     

    To get to know each other better, here are four facts about me, and my three favorite things about Gunderson’s.

     

     

    Four Facts About Me

    1.) I went bowling in the White House once. (Yes, the White House holds a bowling alley in the basement.

     

    2.) Authentic Mexican food will be served at my wedding because it is my favorite type food.

     

    3.) Instagram is my weakness.

     

    4.) One day I will get married in either a Marchesa, Reem Acra, or Zuhair Murad dress.

     

     

    My Three Favorite Things About Gunderson’s

     

    1.)  The People: The individuals who work at Gunderson’s are incredibly talented. They are willing to help their customers in any way they can and will find or fix anything you need.

     

    2.) I Learn So Much From These Talented Individuals. The jewelers and sales associates know their diamonds. They are constantly teaching me new information. Life tip: a good jeweler can be compared to a good lawyer, both can be life saving.

     

    3.) The Jewelry: Gunderson’s jewelry will make you feel like queen. Buy one, or five, of their rings and you will feel like Beyoncé or Princess Kate.

     

     

     

    I would love to hear more about you. What are some facts about you or your favorite memories with Gunderson’s?
