Tadahhhh!!!!!! I’ve been itching to post these for weeks (blame my low EQ)–thankfully they finally gave me the greenlight! Here are the pictures from a campaign we did for Sunjewel! Bravo to my fiance for doing a good job “mowwwdeling” with me. It’s always awkward posing with Patrick for professional shoots, just go and ask the team behind this campaign. We have about 100 awkward outtakes (definitely not worthy enough for online posting!). I’d like to think that’s why Sunjewel chose us for this campaign, what we lack in smoldering poses, kayang-kaya namin bawiin with our witty one liners! Naks!!
As most of you already know, Sunjewel made Patrick’s wedding band (as seen in the photos) and they also customized a beautiful wedding ring for me using my grandmother’s antique diamonds. I now have a beautiful piece of jewelry which I am excited to pass on to my child someday, just as it was passed on for generations before me. I was never particular about jewelry before but when Patrick gifted me with a one of a kind engagement ring, I just understood the beauty of jewelry all of a sudden. Sometimes it’s not about the flashy bling bling, it’s about the story behind each piece of jewelry that makes it more special. When jewelry is used to bestow genuine love, to show your appreciation, to celebrate a milestone, that’s when it truly sparkles. And that’s what Sunjewel always tries to preserve when making jewelry. In their quest for excellence, designing each and every piece with precision, using only the finest stones and gems, they are able to keep the integrity of each piece of jewelry.
I was lucky enough to play dress up with different pieces for this shoot. And wow, I really felt like a million bucks! Both literally and figuratively! Check out their latest collection below. 🙂 You can find these pieces in the Sunjewel showroom in Edsa Shangrila Hotel.
