Behind your designs
A few weeks into moving into my new apartment I went to a bar called Bus Stop. In walks blonde, bubbly and full of personality - Haley. I knew right then we were destined to be friends. I instantly felt at home in a strange new place. We decided to engrave each other's initials on our Uno Rings to symbolize our forever friendship. Our rings serve as a reminder that no matter where we end up in the world, we'll always have each other.
My favorite piece from Silent Opus is their Statement Ring, which you can get customized with your own letters. I got mine with the initials of my 3 cats; Monkey, Hamlet and Basil. They're the loves of my life and the cutest cats on Earth. I love having this reminder of them every time I look down at my hand.
We lost my grandmother to breast cancer two years ago. I knew I wanted to create something in honor of her and when I saw the Orb Ring, I knew it would be something that she would have loved to have worn. When selecting the gemstone, marble aquamarine stood out to me because I felt it reflected and symbolized the ocean, which is something my grandmother loved so greatly. I knew I wanted the engraving to say “Ocean's Gift” because our grandmother was a gift, and the ocean is just something that she wanted to be a part of for the rest of her life. It made me feel so much closer to my grandmother, and I'll always have a reminder of her with me wherever I go.
My sister and I were always close growing up. We've always been right there for each other. When things got hard. She's one of my greatest friends now. We live in different states now and I wanted to have a piece of jewelry to wear with me, to remind me of her. This necklace with her initials is the perfect piece for that.
I recently started going through some of my old photos of my Oma. Some of the most memorable and meaningful moments in my life were shared with her. Silent Opus's mesmerizing Thin Pave Diamond Dome band truly reminds me of her. Five rows of pave diamonds wrapped around the surface make up this stunning and unique band. When I was in my 20s, she gifted me a similar band that unfortunately was stolen. This new glimmering stunning band is a true reminder of her and those memories and a piece I will cherish forever.

I had gone with my mom to Paris on a vacation in 2012 and that was absolutely the most meaningful trip of my life. The inscription that I put on the inside is a French expression that translates to “Don't forget to live”. It was an incredibly difficult past couple of years with the combination of the pandemic and getting out of a serious relationship. I'm very grateful to have this peace in my life because every single day it's a reminder to me of how magical life is and how important the connections we have are.
For me, the moonstone symbolizes intuition, femininity, inner wisdom, and of course new beginnings. It serves as a daily reminder for me to cherish this beautiful journey that I am currently living today.
