I think of keepsakes as something meaningful that serves as a reminder, whether that be a commitment to yourself or someone else, or a reminder of someone who may no longer be with you — it’s a piece that when you wear it, you feel their presence.

Nikki Bostwick is the Founder & Editor-in-Chief of The Fullest - a digital and print publication bridging the gap between wellness and contemporary culture. Without giving up style, and while holding the experience of the reader at a really high level. The Fullest covers all things- including wellness, culture, politics, travel, fashion, art, food and more. The publications they print are gorgeous and their weekly newletters are always some of our favorite reads. Filled with the newest and latest, there is always something inspiring to learn about on the Fullest. This soon-to-be mama lives in Newport Beach with with her husband and pup. Her jewelry is a currate mix of beloved pieces that represent significant times, people and places. 

WHAT DOES KEEPSAKE MEAN TO YOU?

I think of keepsakes as something meaningful that serves as a reminder, whether that be a commitment to yourself or someone else, or a reminder of someone who may no longer be with you — it’s a piece that when you wear it, you feel their presence. 

I recently received a piece that means “love” in Farsi, gifted to me from an employee who I just adore. It reminds me of my roots, it reminds me of a commitment I made to myself to be and embody love, and it reminds me of the special bond I built with her and my team.

FIRST JEWELRY MEMORY?

As a child I was gifted a gold bracelet that was brought back from Iran. It was so beautiful and I loved it. It grew with me and I still have really distinct memories of it and how special it made me feel. In actuality, my grandparents gave it to me and put it on my right hand because they really wanted me to write with my right hand (I’m naturally left handed). It worked! I can write with both hands now! They eventually had to cut it off my arm (sad day), but I’d love to see if my mother still has it. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF JEWELRY?

My T necklace from Celine — it has so much meaning. T is for my baby boy, arriving in September. It was a Valentine’s gift this year to solidify his name, Truth. Another favorite piece is my sapphire clover ring — which is what my husband proposed with. It’s like a contemporary heirloom piece. 

ANY JEWELRY RITUALS? 

The T necklace used as a pendulum became a ritual. I would ask it questions over my belly every night when I was first pregnant. And the Elsa Perretti ring I wear on my right hand — my husband and I have worn the rings everyday for the last 12 years!

WHAT ARE YOUR EVERDAY PIECES?

I love delicate necklaces. Usually I’m wearing my Starling Star Necklace layered with an Elsa Peretti diamond solitaire. I very rarely change my earrings, and usually wear diamond studs that were a wedding gift from my father. For rings, I wear my wedding ring and bands, as well as a silver band from Tiffany’s that my husband got me on our 6-month anniversary. We actually both exchanged rings for our six-month anniversary (while we were still in high school!) so it’s really special to me.

FAVORITE ANITQUE PIECE?

None! My mom and grandmother are still hoarding all of their jewelry!

WHAT IS YOUR MOST RECENT PIECE OF JEWELRY?

My husband gets me a necklace every Christmas. This Christmas it was the little gold star from Starling. 

HOW MANY JEWELRY BOXES DO YOU OWN?

I don’t really have any boxes; most of my pieces just hang on stands in the bathroom. 

FAVORITE STARLING DESIGN?

It’s so hard to pick! I really love the Three-Stone Sapphire ring and Pave Sapphire ring. I really love sapphires.

 

TELL US YOUR EAR PIERCING STORY!

It was while on a trip to Iran when I was five. My mother and grandmother took me, my sister, and our cousin, who are both older than me. They were so scared that they made me go first, but I wasn’t scared at all and was like “It’s no big deal guys!” That experience has stuck with me to this day. Every time I’m in a situation where fear tries to take hold of me, I remember that little five-year-old girl who, in that moment, felt so brave — like she could overcome anything she set her mind to.

 

Thank you Nikki!
