Jennifer Aydin gifts Teresa Giudice the Claire locket bracelet on the reunion episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
We spoke with Jennifer about what inspired her to choose the Claire locket for Teresa. She said, "I wanted to pick a piece that was not only stylish but that meant something. With the trend of big chandelier earrings these days, necklaces sometimes get lost in the bundle. So I thought a bracelet would be a welcomed fashion forward change. It’s stylish and trendy yet classic. And this way she can always have a picture of her mother close to her without having to interfere with any style options she may have as far as what is needed when choosing earrings or a necklace".
If you're not familiar with The Real Housewives of New Jersey, there's a heartbreaking story behind Teresa's locket. In 2017, Teresa's mother, Antonia, passed away following a battle with pneumonia and rheumatoid arthritis. Antonia was only 66 years old. She now encourages others to never take the time they have with their parents and loved ones for granted.
To tuck inside the Claire locket bracelet, Jennifer selected a beautiful photo Teresa and Antonia together. When asked how she picked out the photo, she replied, "The reason I chose that picture for Teresa is because I noticed it’s the one she refers to the most, which gave me the impression that it was one of her favorites".
Jennifer's touching tribute to Teresa's mother is one that tugs on your heartstrings. It's hard not to be overcome with emotions hearing Teresa's story. It's one that resonates with so many people. With those who have lost a parent they cherished deeply and with those who cannot imagine life without their parents, Teresa's story is one that simply touches your heart.

The relationship between a girl and her mother is something so precious. We hope that each time Teresa is missing her mother a little extra or wishes she could be there with her, that she can simply clasp the Claire locket bracelet around her wrist and know that Antonia's love is always close.
