Unique Treasures: Pling

The little prince went away, to look again at the roses.
"You're not at all like my rose," he said.
"As yet you are nothing. No one has tamed you, and you have tamed no one.
You're like my fox when I first knew him.
He was only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes.
But I have made a friend, and now he's unique in all the world."
And the roses were very much embarrassed.
"You're beautiful, but you're empty," he went on. "One could not die for you.
To be sure, an ordinary passerby would think that my rose looked just like you
–the rose that belongs to me. But in herself alone she's more important
than all the hundreds of you other roses:
because it is she that I have watered;
because it is she that I have put under the glass globe;
because it is for her that I've killed the caterpillars
(except the two or three we saved to become butterflies);
because it is she that I have listened to, when she grumbled,
or boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing.
Because she is MY rose.”

― Antoine de St. Exupery

Tis the season for giving! Hey guys, thinking of getting a unique gift for your wife or girlfriend? And ladies, I know you will absolutely fall for these as much as I do. What am I talking about? Look below to find out more!

The best things in life really do come in small packages. I love Pling Jewelry and wholeheartedly recommend them because their jewelry is beautiful and very well made, not to mention, unique and creative! Just look at these precious pieces sent to me by Tracy (brains behind the creations). Every piece from their store has a story behind them and brings back memories of the times when I thought fairytales were real.

Pling’s latest creation does not fail to impress. This delicate little piece is called a Story Dome. I requested for the Black Rose design which is inspired by one of my most beloved stories of all time: The Little Prince. Stare into it and you’ll simply be lost in a fantasy world of miniature planets and gardens. If you haven't read the story, go read it right now. It is a sweet little story for children and adults that never grow up.

For the unintiated, in the story, the lonely little prince tends to his rose with the most loving care. Because it is in a glass dome, you will need to take extra care of it, and so I felt the same emotions as the little prince as I wore this on my neck! There are also other story-inspired designs and each one is unique and lovely.

The other design that I treasure is the intricate Rose Locket. Lockets really trigger a kind of romantic fantasy in me. This is a beautiful and elegant piece to wear and you can keep your small secrets inside. Want to know what I keep in mine? It is a secret!!! But you can ask me if you ever see me wearing it and I'll show it to you.
