The Gift of Memories

It’s amazing how many memories can get packed into something so small.

After I graduated college, my mom passed down one of her family heirlooms to me to celebrate a huge milestone in my life. It was a ring that she had inherited from her mother-in-law and I remember everything about that day so vividly. Passing the ring down to me was so meaningful to her, and the story she told me about the ring is something that I still keep very close to my heart and I wear that ring almost every single day. It’s so amazing to have a physical reminder of my family and where I come from.


I recently brought my second daughter, Colette, into the world and thought it might seem a little too early but I’ve already started to think of what pieces I want to pass down to her and Chloe. Of course, that’s not going to happen for many years now as I want them to be fully responsible to take care of them, but I always wonder what kind of women they will grow to be, and love the idea of passing meaningful memories and items down to them once they’re older.

I truly appreciate fine jewelry now that I’m a mother of two more than I ever had before. Though I love my costume jewelry and playing around with trends- I really do value the few luxury pieces I have. I can’t wait to pass them down to my girls!


To add to the list of things I want to pass down to Chloe and Colette, I was so excited to team up with Chopard for Day 6 of the 12 Days of Chriselle. I was able to go to their gorgeous flagship store at South Coast Plaza and learn all about their Happy Hearts Collection that symbolizes self-giving.

This gorgeous bracelet I’m wearing is made of 18k rose gold and has one of Chopard’s beautiful floating diamonds. It’s such a timeless piece and a reminder of everything 2018 brought me: a new life, my newly renovated home, my new office space, CINC studios… the good, the bad and ultimately, the perseverance of hard work!

I can’t wait to pass it down to one of my girls someday as a reminder and token of hard work and self-love. Thanks to our partnership with Chopard, we were able to make a generous donation to the amazing Baby2Baby.

Plus, Chopard is giving away two adorable coin-purses to two lucky readers today and thanks to Chopard’s ongoing partnership with Petra Nemcova and the All hands and Hearts foundation, proceeds from the sale of all red happy hearts bangles go to rebuilding communities affected by natural disasters around the world!
