The Family Stone

Pamela Lauz Infinity Pendants

What It Is: As many of you know, this month features a ‘bonus’ stat holiday known in most provinces as Family Day (fun fact: I’m partially personally responsible for why it’s called ‘Louis Riel Day’ in Manitoba). This mid-winter break is a time to gather with loved ones and just enjoy your company – without hectic holidays getting in the way. I love that sentiment.

So then, I also by default love the sentiment behind Toronto-based Pamela Lauz Jewellery’s personalized infinity birthstone pendants. I’ve featured the brand a handful of times on here, and in one of my earlier posts I mentioned that one of their signature designs is the subtle take on an infinity pendant. Their birthstone application is equally elegant – you can get your necklace customized with the stones of your entire family for a sleek update on the classic family tree necklace. Or you can opt for a single stone to represent your own zodiac sign. In fact, you can actually design the necklace to be two-sided – making this an extra versatile piece.

Whatever the case, this makes a beautiful gift for a milestone birthday, anniversary or even Valentine’s Day. And in celebration of Family Day, Pamela Lauz Jewellery is offering at least 20% off all of the precious stones that go into your custom necklace. So pretty! Even if you aren’t in need of a gift in the immediate future, keep in mind this makes an excellent pick for any time of year – buy it now and take advantage of the rare savings, then save it for Christmas or another special occasion.

Who It’s For: Your mom, as a gift from the kids for her birthday. Your daughter, as a way to commemorate the arrival of a new little one (especially if it’s going to be the last child). Your wife, as a sweet anniversary gift that celebrates your family.

What It Costs: The pendant itself is $95, while the stone prices vary from $45-$75. However, with this month’s discount, those stones are $35-$60 for a limited time!

Where It’s At: The Pamela Lauz Jewellery site has all the details you need to craft your custom piece.

    Growing up, my mom had a beautiful ring with all five of our birthstones (my 2 siblings, myself and my mom and dad’s). It was honestly the most romantic and most thoughtful gift my father has ever given my mother, and they’ve been married for 40 years. I don’t wear rings, besides my own wedding ring, but have always wanted to have something similar to my mom’s birthstone ring. This is not only a beautiful idea, but the pefect solution for my special family peice. I would inlucde the birthstones of my three sons (Emerald, Peridot & Diamond), as well as my husband’s (Aquamarine) and my own (Amethyst).
