Looking for a special gift for that graduate in your life? We love these crystal boxed sets by @littleboxofrocksshop ๐Ÿ’Ž . Inspired by a magical tradition dating back to antiquity, each gift box contains a meaningful collection of healing crystals. This particular set, Wildflower, is for new journeys and even comes with a little bottle of wildflower seeds, offering courage, protection and wisdom in new beginnings. A very thoughtful and unusual gift ๐ŸŒผ ! #crystals #littleboxofrocks #wildflowers #newbeginnings #shoplocal #shopsmall #goodvibes

House renovation update! The entryway of my home is my absolute favorite. Itโ€™s one of the reasons that I decided to purchase the house and the only room that remains relatively untouched after a massive home renovation. Although itโ€™s bright and clean, this area has been lacking some personality. After looking at so many wallpapers, I decided to go in a different direction and have artist @kimmymakesthings come work on a special project for me. Check out our stories today for more details. Work starts next week and I canโ€™t wait! Stunning BEFORE photo by my girl, @catbwell ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒป #tandbhome #entryway #sodomino #homerenovation #apartmenttherapy #waterhill

We think that these rose gold and diamond crescent moon earrings by @sirciamjewelry would make the perfect pair of every day jewels. Super delicate and just the right amount of rosy pink ๐ŸŒ™ โœจ #rosegold #moon #crescentmoon #sirciamjewelry #moonphases

Royal wedding hysteria has set in! We have some pretty rare antique pieces in the shop from another big royal event, the coronation of Edward VII in 1902. This tiny little book locket was a souvenir of the event and when opened, has pictures of the members of the royal family. These are one of the first items I started collecting when I started Thistle & Bess years ago. Swipe right to see the cover of this one. Will you be watching the royal wedding tomorrow? ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง #royalwedding #coronation #greatbritain #edwardvii #booklockets #antiquejewelry

Signet rings were historically used as a signature would be today. The wearer would mark a document with them by leaving an impression in clay or wax. This Victorian signet ring features a Forget Me Not flower carved into Sardonyx, a stone said to bring happiness, optimism and confidence to the wearer. The Forget Me Not was a common motif in Victorian jewelry, symbolizing โ€œfaithful loveโ€ and also remembrance of a loved one who had passed away ๐Ÿฅ€.This one of a kind beauty is listed in our online shop. Follow the link in the bio for more info. #victorian #antiquejewelry #forgetmenot #signetring #sardonyx #annarbor
