As a father and a husband during the period of time when your children are born, you know that you have the easy part when it comes to childbirth. I know that when my wife and I were about to have our first baby, someone mentioned to me the idea of getting a gift for mom as a reminder of the sacrifice that she was making and the effort that she was extending to bring a new baby into the world. At that point, I had never heard of the idea of a push gift, but I guess what I had been told was just that.
I had never heard of Juno Lucina until recently. The whole idea of this company is to provide amazingly beautiful pieces of jewelry for mothers at a time when (in my humble opinion) they truly deserve it. Each piece of jewelry is painstakingly made and the overall effect is noticeable. I was sent one of the necklaces that they make, and in looking at this, I have to say that first and foremost when I received it I was very impressed with the presentation. The box that the necklace comes in is very ornate. Inside that box, you have a second box that is equally nice. I can see how it would make the mom feel very special.
In looking at the website itself, I was impressed to find that it was very easy to use. For any father who is looking for an easy gift to purchase, the company has made it very user-friendly in regards to selecting and purchasing a nice piece of jewelry. On the website, you have a number of options based on how much you want to spend. On top of this, they even have a custom jewelry section where you can work directly with the company to make something that is even more unique.
I can tell that this piece of jewelry is one that will last a long time due to the quality construction of the piece itself. In speaking with the founder of the company, I was impressed to find that all of the jewelry are made in the United States. I am the person who supports local and national companies over international at times, and seeing this jewelry was made just in the United States was something that made me feel even more willing to purchase.
Some of you may be wondering why the company is named after Juno Lucina, and in doing research, I came to find that Juno Lucina was the Roman goddess of childbirth who was responsible for safeguarding new mothers and children. The design on the jewelry itself was made to symbolize the hands of Juno Lucina, cradling the and the heads of the mother and child.
While I had never heard of the Juno Lucina tradition specifically, I found out that it has been around for over 1,000 years. This was an amazing concept and I was amazed that in asking fathers if they had heard of this before, most had not, or at least most had not heard it called this.
As I have said, the presentation of this gift is important and the company has done an amazing job at this, but the truly amazing part of this is the necklace itself. I received the necklace that you see above and I have to say that this was a simply stunning piece of jewelry that truly stood out. The design is unique and the diamonds are beautifully placed within the necklace itself. As I mentioned, you have the choice of size of necklace that you want, and the one that I received was the initial priced item. Even though this was the case, it was stunning and when I gave it to my wife, her mouth simply dropped and she was speechless. I think this was even better in the fact that we have been married for 14 years, our children are 8 and 4, and the gift was unexpected.
I have to give kudos to the company for all that it is doing to promote the Juno Lucina tradition, as it is one that I have to say is one that all fathers and fathers-to-be should know about and should celebrate. Mothers do an amazing job at bringing our children into the world, and this sacrifice and gift should be treasured and celebrated with a gift that is unique and special as this product is.
