Since I've chosen Powder Rose to represent October's birthstone, it seemed right to feature this beautiful pearl this month! It's is one of the most popular or our pearl selections. It is a great color- yes, I do say this about every color- but seriously, if I didn't like the colors that I offer for your designs, I wouldn't be excited about making them!
What I like about the Powder Rose pearl color is that it offers a little bit deeper of a pink than the Rosaline. Where Rosaline offers a soft, subtle tone, Powder Rose will offer more pop without getting too bright. It's a deeper tone, more akin to a raspberry. What's great about it is that it can be paired really well with all of the colors. You really can't mess up Powder Rose.
I really can't think of any of the pearls that I wouldn't pair Powder Rose with! There's a reason that I included it in my original line from Swarovski!

Aaron and Gaby are a loving couple that are adopting domestically, and they are our first Featured Family to be doing so! Personally, that makes me kind of excited, as we're travelling the same road.
They have been married for 6 years and have two darling boys ages 2 and 4, Both were born under high risk circumstances. Aaron and Gaby started thinking about adoption after their first son was born and eventually felt the call to embark on the adoption journey in 2012! They are adopting through a domestic infant program here in the U.S. and are now waiting to be matched.
For those of you who aren't as familiar with domestic adoption, what that means is that they have done all the home study paper work and have made family profiles that can be shown to birth families. These profiles can be reviewed by birth mothers and fathers as they seek to find forever families for their unborn babies. This can be quite an emotional roller coaster as a family waits to hear if a birth mother wants to meet them or consider them. As we have experienced in our own journey, sometimes you are matched and at the last minute the birth mother can change her mind. And it's a devastating thing to endure.
But it's worth it!
Please pray for Aaron and Gaby as they wait, as they travel this road of twists and turns.
"The adoption process if full of ups and downs with many unknowns but it's been an exciting journey filled with fundraising, growing our faith, and relying on God!"
Every purchase made through our website, as well as those made at Felicity Boutique, will help this sweet family on their adoption journey! Isn't it a blessing to see the many ways that families can be built through adoption?!
