Summer of Gold!
It’s no secret that we love gold.
We love the way it sparkles, the way it makes us feel, and its rich history. At the shop, we pride ourselves in carrying some of the most beautiful gold body jewelry in the whole world, but we’re not the ones to first introduce gold to BC.
The Royal BC museum in Victoria is featuring a gold exhibit all summer! The second half of the exhibit told the story of the early gold rush days, as European settlers came to BC in search of shiny wealth. (This was super fun and interesting for anyone who likes gold.)
But the best part was the unexpected first half of the exhibit, which featured a collection of armour, trinkets, and ornate body jewelry from South America. (We loooove learning everything we can about the history of body piercing in other parts of the world!)
So if you love gold like we do, head down to Victoria and bask in the glow.
(Can we buy these for ourselves?)
Bonus fact! There is an adorable Food Truck Festival going on right behind the museum.
