Hello my friend,
It has been a while since the last blog post and I would like to close off 2021 with a piece of my heart.
To be honest, 2021 has been the most challenging year even more so being the second year of a "pandemic". There has been a lot of changes (if you've noticed, and if not, thats ok too) this year. With time, patience, lots or trial and error, hard work and dedication, things have started to unfold and has surprisingly worked out for the best.
I (Vivian) "THANK YOU" for all your patience and trust that you have in Vi Ling Designs more so especially this year. As I continue my gemology education with GIA, I can't wait to share with you more of what I have been learning. I am even more ambitious and hopeful for 2022 and excited to share with you more of the Vi Ling journey!
Remember my friend, no matter how tough life gets, there is always a 🌈 at the end... There really is! Stay positive and stay hopeful. Surround your self with people that genuinely care about you and have YOU at their best interest. For the friends that are just "fun friends", you can see them later after you've flourished and thrived 😄
🥂Cheers to self growth, self love❣️
🎊 To end the year, I want to share with you my top 5 favorite custom pieces of 2021. It was so hard to choose from because each piece has a unique story.
Lets get to it!!!!
#5 :: Replicate initial heart charm where the original was handmade during a time of war. Feel free to read the whole story about this piece in our last blog story.
#4 :: Something new, something old together in one piece for this special wedding band set.
The mens band is very special as the gold used was melted from heirloom pieces of the grooms mother. The diamond for the brides ring was also an heirloom from the grooms mother. Marriage isn't just husband and wife, this wedding ring set is the true symbol of two families coming Together as One.
#3 :: Ombre Purple Sapphire and Pearl necklace framed in 14k rose gold
Purple sapphires are considered a rare color and not widely available. Sourcing this ombre of purple sapphires was truly a treasure hunt.
Our 🥇favorite custom piece of 2021 🤩
From concept creation - sourcing - production, 2 great minds came together to create this magical one-of- a-kind wedding band. From LA to NY, this ring made its journey from coast to coast and we are humbled to be apart of this Forever Love Story💖
Thank you for being with us on the 2021 Vi Ling journey!
We can't wait to share with you all the great things ahead in the New Year 🥰
From the Vi Ling family, we wish you a HAPPY ❤️ HEALTHY ❤️ PROSPEROUS 2022!
🤗 Please continue to stay safe my friends!
