Waxing Poetic

Waxing Poetic believes the old adage that it is a woman’s prerogative to change her mind, particularly when it comes to jewelry and self-expression. From timeless yet timely insignia pieces, to elegant but decadent statement rings, keepsake charms to iconic pendants, or a suite of bracelets ranging flirty to fabulous, and even semi-magical bottles (they make an oh-so-cute sterling silver bottle bedecked with the words "love elixer"or an exquisitely packaged candle from their signature luminaries collection. Nowhere in the annals of time is there one specific formula for the ‘right’ present. Waxing Poetic believes that LOVE, like most things that matter, is in the details; that sharing sentiment is sacred, not silly; and also that, you as the giver, know far more what your sweetheart (or you!) wants than anyone else.
