Getting EXACTLY what you want….
…At least where it concerns your wedding jewelry
So you’ve got the dress, the shoes, and the veil and you’ve spent the past three months searching for the perfect jewelry to complement your already perfect dress on what is to be your perfect day. The only problem is not that you aren’t sure what you want…it’s that you’re TOO sure. You know precisely what you want and can’t find precisely what you want anywhere. How exactly do you go about finding the perfect shade of light pink, freshwater pearls in just the right size and then making sure the length of the necklace is not a hair over 18 inches long and earrings to match? It will never happen…
Or well it couldn’t until now. Meet the fabulous Zia Sachedina, owner and namesake of the equally as fabulous Zia Boutique in downtown Savannah, GA (http://www.ziaboutique.com/). Zia means “luminous” in Arabic and luminous is the perfect description of his shop. Zia’s beautiful boutique on Broughton Street features loads of contemporary and traditional jewelry, accessories and home accents from designers from around the world, the most important of whom (as far as I’m concerned) is Zia himself. A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, Zia grew up between Kenya and the U.S. watching and learning from his mother, also a successful jeweler.
But I digress…the point is that I meandered into Zia Botique a few weeks ago in search of necklaces for my bridesmaids, knowing what I was looking for but not able to find it. I saw a necklace that was similar to what I was looking for, but not quite it. I told him what I really wanted and to my surprise, he said “No problem. I can have six of those for you next week.” And he did! The necklaces are exactly what I wanted and he even gift wrapped them! I could not be more pleased. The necklaces are fabulous, and as I blog Zia is presently working on a necklace and matching earrings for me to wear on the big day!
Added to the fabulousness of being able to get what you want, is being able to get what you want at a super reasonable price. Apparently, you do not have to be a super wealthy Hollywood starlet to find a jeweler to design your wedding jewelry for you. Who knew? In fact, you don’t even have to be in Savannah, as you can order all of the jewelry from the website. Getting exactly what you wanted was never so easy…now if only my future mother-in-law could be this accommodating…hmm next week’s blog idea?
