Dear Moon Girls,
💖As half a year has gone by and August is here, why not take some time to stop and reflect on ourselves before we continue our run? One question we may ponder is:
Are we being true to ourselves?

We, ladies, seem to be born with boundaries: as little girls, we are expected to be quiet and bound at home; when grown up, we are told to protect our purity and are nitpicked about whatever we do; in marriage, we are assigned the role of supporting the husband and educating the children.
But must we be bound by all these labels? Maybe the August birth flower, the poppy, could give us some insights, guiding us to think about who we truly are?
Poppies, 1950 by Georgia O'Keefe❤️ Red or white, the four-petal poppies are never scared to be her true self and bloom with her glamor. Passionate like the red or cheerful like the white, we can flower like a poppy and don’t always have to give up our thoughts and compromise.🤍

Just as O'Keeffe’s meticulous painting of poppies, delicate but tough they are, we can blossom into our gorgeous and genuine selves. This pioneer of feminist artists once said,
"I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I've never let it keep me from a single thing that I wanted to do.”

So, August girls, just don’t be afraid to do what you want, and may our dedicated Poppy collection bless you with confidence on the journey.
1. August Leos to show their charisma
Poppy just matches Leos perfectly: both are independent and strong-minded with glamor that has no way to conceal, which is why our Poppy collection is the ideal choice for Moon girls of this Zodiac sign. You must not miss our ring and earrings in this collection as they feature iolite, the lucky gemstone for Leo in astrology.
2. August Virgos to be out of the comfort zone

Highly self-disciplined and well-organized they are, Virgos are often cautious and conservative. We understand Virgos’ fear of risk and uncertainty, so we have added moonstone to every piece of jewelry in our Poppy collection, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone. Be dared to express yourself with the charming poppy on your ears, fingers, wrists, and neck.
3. Every lost star
Our Poppy collection is an ideal gift idea for August girls, but it is also designed for everyone looking for a direction in life. The moonstone jewelry in the collection can inspire you with positive energy. The iolite adding a final touch to the ring and earrings can show you the direction.
🌺Introducing our Poppy Collection💛
This collection brings you 5 pieces of exquisite jewelry, all gold or rhodium plated, so you may pick the one that can reflect your true colors.🪞
Wear this adjustable ring and bangle to let the poppy bloom and the moonstone shine on your wrist, with a chain embellished with 4 cubic zirconia linking to your finger.
Nothing better than a pair of asymmetrical earrings to show your determination to break through stereotypes. Who says earrings must be symmetrical? This pair of poppy earrings feature faceted moonstone and Marquise iolite, empowering you to bloom elegantly.
If a pair of earrings is not enough, stack them with this matching ear cuff to add layers to your ears. It goes well on its own as well with the healing moonstone and mysterious poppy.
With a similar design as the ear cuff in the same collection, this ring is an item you won’t want to miss if you are looking for consistency in your mix-and-match style. Besides moonstone, this ring is also complemented by iolite for the delicate poppy to flower in between.
Sometimes a simple pendant is already enough to brighten your outfit of the day. The moonstone in the center of the pendant is circled by vines with poppy growing on it, just like the power of gemstone and birth flower circling you. It can be added to any style of our necklace chain.
Wear our poppy jewelry the way you like, just as how you would live your life freely without labels or any must-dos. No one can define how you shine. You can wear them anytime and at any age. Bloom in your 20-30s, but also your 40s, 50s, 60s, and so on. ✨

As Michelle Yeoh, a famous August Leo, said in her acceptance speech for the Oscar Best Actress award, “Ladies, don't let anybody ever tell you that you are past your prime.”
August has just begun, and so do our birth flower series. Stay tuned for our blossom next month: Aster.🌼
