"I recently faced the daunting prospect of choosing a gift for one of my fiancée’s milestone birthdays. Catherine runs a fashion business, so clothes wouldn’t work. A jewelry concierge called Best Kept had previously contacted me with an offer to test-drive their service, so I decided to give it a shot. Their stylist asked for a picture of Catherine so that they could get a sense of her style, and within a couple of days I had five options to choose from, along with the backstory of each design. I settled on this beautiful Retrouvi pendant necklace, and my fiancée was thrilled. If you're looking for a jewelry gift this Christmas but don't know where to start, I would highly recommend giving Best Kept a try. You never know what they will find." - Sam Dangremond, Contributor, Town & Country
