If you’ve been in a relationship as long as I have (5 years!), you’ve probably experienced difficulty coming up with thoughtful gifts for the plethora of holidays we’re obliged to celebrate. Don’t get me wrong—I love my lululemon yoga mat, and when my fiancée surprised me with a freshly detailed car on my birthday, I was THRILLED. Sometimes, though, it’s nice to commemorate a certain moment, place or life event in a more personalized way. This is why I’m so excited about the new A.JAFFE Maps Collection.
A.JAFFE Maps are custom-engraved with commemorative locations, with a diamond marking a specific spot. The coordinates can indicate where you became engaged, married, met your S.O., etc. For example, my Map is of the Benton MacKaye Trail in Georgia, a beautiful place in Appalachia my fiancée and I went on vacation last year. It was on this trail that we had a huge, hangry, dehydration-fueled argument that ended with us cutting our hike short. We returned to town and, after we had some pasta (and wine), we ended up discussing our relationship and decided to get married. I guess we figured that if we could survive being stranded on a mountain, we could probably spend the rest of our lives together.
The A.JAFFE Maps are very versatile, which is great because there are so many places that are special to my fiancée and me. The Maps are available as pendants, necklaces, charms and cuff links, and come in shades of white, rose and yellow gold, as well as sterling silver. You can layer these pieces on a necklace or wear several on a bracelet. They make great gifts too—I plan on getting my future mother-in-law a charm for Christmas, to commemorate officially becoming part of her family.
These pieces are made with the same attention to detail as A.JAFFE wedding and engagement rings—a very popular brand whose level of quality has withstood generations. The gold used by A.JAFFE is completely nickel free, and their 18K white gold is alloyed with more palladium than many other brands, ensuring a longer life for the piece’s color.
