I’ll admit that I have a real weakness for jewelry. It’s a favorite souvenir choice for myself when traveling and a top gift that I give to the special people in my life. Earrings, necklaces, rings…it’s all fair game, and meaningful, handmade jewelry pieces that represent my personality (or that of the recipient) are even better. When Auburn jewelry hit my radar last week, it instantly became a new favorite for just these reasons. Designed and created by Samantha Auburn Levine, each handmade jewelry piece is crafted in sterling silver, 14k gold or brass and comes in 18 vibrant colors. Choose your theme (initials, dog breeds, states, zodiac, to name a few), then pick your color to create a playful jewelry piece to match your aesthetic. If you want a start-to-finish completely customized piece, Levine offers that option, too. And when you want a cool, statement-making ring, necklace or bracelet, Auburn’s Planished pieces (check out the stunning ring featured below) are must-haves for any occasion, any time of year. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone special, it’s impossible to go wrong with this charming jewelry.
