Push Present

Push Present

Before I had a baby, I always thought push presents were a little crazy. Isn’t the baby supposed to be the gift?! But when Anel told me that he wanted to gift me something to show how much he appreciated me for everything we went through followed by a difficult pregnancy, I started to see it differently.

Obviously Amalia is the real gift here, but the fact that he wanted me to feel special outside of just being a mommy, and wanted to honor that with a gift was really touching. And honestly, what woman will say no to a beautiful piece of jewelry? Ha!

I knew that I wanted another ring to add to my stack, and after doing a project with the jewelry brand A.Jaffe last year (seen here) and falling in love with their diamond bands, I told him to look at their stackable rings first. Not only are they beautiful and dainty, but they’re all hypo-allergenic which I love because my fingers get irritated easily for some reason.

The only thing I told him was that I wanted it to be yellow gold because I love mixing metals and my engagement and wedding rings are both platinum. Beyond that, it was up to him. I wanted to be surprised!

When he chose this ring for me, I was shocked. I had pictured a thin, simple band of small diamonds, and this one was more over the top than I expected. I’m so so happy with it and stare down at my hand constantly because I love it so much. Not only is it beautiful, but it represents us overcoming a difficult time, growing together as a couple, and creating the beautiful life of our daughter.

  • I do love the idea of having a piece of jewelry that connects you to being a mom and that experience. I see why people would roll their eyes at push presents but I cherish my necklace from when my daughter was born and my ring from my son.

    Your ring is gorgeous!

    It’s so pretty!!! I love the contrast of the metals but the diamonds brings it all together. So beautiful and special!

    I think it’s sweet he wanted to do something for you and I think it’s important to give your man space to spoil you because it also makes them feel good! And like you said… how could you say no to a beautiful piece of jewelry?! HA!

    • Thank you so much! And yes, no one in their right mind would say no to a diamond ring 🙂

    Simply gorgeous! I love having jewelry to mark special occasions.

    I love your monogram necklace, too. Can you tell me what size it is, mini or small? Thanks!

    I love that ring (your whole stack!) and the mixed metals. My aunt gave me a bamboo bracelet for my high school graduation that has yellow and white gold and I have worn it almost every day since because I feel like it gives me permission to mix metals all I want elsewhere! I think that as long as your financial situation allows, why not accept a beautiful present? My husband made me a sweet present after our first son was born and I will always cherish it.

    While I like the idea of commemorating your baby’s birth with a keepsake, I go back and forth about the idea of a push present (the first time I heard the term I thought it was a joke). As a first time mom with a complicated pregnancy that led to a three week NICU stay bringing my baby home was present enough.
