Hispanic Heritage month can be traced back to 1968, celebrations begin on September 15th, the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua. Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period. The celebration lasts all month long between September 15th through October 15th. Latinos all around the world will host parties, giving gifts to mark this occasion. For my family, we give gold or silver items to mark the day special. We discuss the meaning behind the "GRITO de Dolores". This year, Field Trip Mom is helping you save money for your celebration.

Latino culture has a strong connection to gold and silver. Most of the time, we wear pieces that have been handed down from our previous ancestors. My family holds that tradition very close to our hearts. My sister and I proudly wear pieces that my mother use to own. I found the 10K Yellow Gold Polished Open Circle Flower Earrings to have a feeling of latin tradition. Consider this item when shopping for your next pair of jewelry. I think they will hold the test of time for you and your family dynasty.
Men love jewelry as well. This 14K Yellow Gold bracelet is perfect for the man in your life. This piece is something he can keep for years to come and hand down to family through the years. In the months of September and October, it is important continue traditions and even establish new ones. Gold and silver gifting is one of the best ways to begin.
Your Mom will love this handcrafted rosary with Swarvoski Crystals from Austria. The center piece carries an image of Holy Lady of Guadalupe on one side and one the other side the image of The Sacred Heart of Jesus to help with her prayers. This is a great piece for Catholics all over the world who meditate and pray as part of their daily lives.
All the pieces I mentioned are timeless and classic that can be handed down to family members as heirlooms. Don Roberto Jewelry has been serving the Hispanic community since 1972. They take special care to continue the Latino traditions and you can always count on them to have that something special for you and your family.

El Grito de Dolores -On the morning of September 16, 1810, the parish priest of the town of Dolores, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, declared himself in open revolt against Spanish rule from the pulpit of his church, launching the Mexican War of Independence. He exhorted his following to take up arms and join him in his fight against the injustices of the Spanish colonial system and within moments he had an army of some 600 men. This action became known as the "Grito de Dolores" or "Cry of Dolores" and today Mexicanscelebrate September 16 as their Independence Day.
