To quote Andy Cohen, Teresa Giudice was "cleaning up" at The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 reunion. After a scuffle unfolded when the ladies gifted Teresa a bracelet with the word "strong" on it from somewhere other than Jennifer Aydin's brother's jewelry shop, the fitness buff was treated to not one, but two more pieces of jewelry at the reunion. First, Danielle Staub surprised Teresa with a blue Tiffany box containing a necklace with the initials "D+T." Then, it was Jennifer's turn. The Season 9 newcomer handed Teresa a pearl bracelet with a locket photo of Teresa and her late mother.
The whole thing was a bit... shall we say, unusual, for a reunion, where such an elaborate gift exchange has never before occurred. But how did Teresa really feel about the gesture?
On March 19, the cookbook author showed us how she feels about at least one of the presents. Teresa posed alongside Jennifer for an Instagram photo in which she's wearing the pearl bracelet. "Making memories and long lasting friendships," Teresa captioned the pic. "Thanking my friend @jenniferaydin for my special pearl bracelet." She also tagged John Michaels Jewelry.
Jennifer shared the photo as well, adding, "So honored to see my beautiful friend @teresagiudice wear the locket bracelet I gave her to congratulate her on all of her amazing achievements! For me, jewelry tells a story. It should be interesting. It should mean something. I love jewelry. It’s in my bones, it’s something I’m very passionate about and I take it very seriously. I wanted to give her something that was not only stylish, but elegant-and something that had meaning."
