I had an incredible time with the LoveGold team! I got to meet up with some astounding designers and individuals I’ve worked with (in person rather than over email !!), had some fun posing in the LoveGold photo booth, and enjoyed the cocktail hour sponsored by LoveGold. One of the highlights for myself was getting to see all the beautiful jewelry everyone was wearing! I made sure to snap some pictures of my favorites.
