Ever since I posted the picture of my favorite necklaces, I’ve wanted to do one with my favorite rings. I just realized after looking at the necklaces that I could do an update because I have bought so many awesome necklaces since I took that original picture years ago.
I’m not into your “standard” jewelry shop jewelry, meaning gold, platinum or the like, with lots of bling and sparkly diamonds. You are more likely to find me wearing a ring from a gumball machine than a ring from Tiffany’s. It’s not a price thing, but an aesthetic thing. To me, those “luxurious” rings looks no different than the junk mass marketed knock offs that you can buy at any department store for $20. They are just so AVERAGE, and they have no personality. What I’m drawn to are unique pieces that have a story behind them, and each one these rings does. You can click on the image to go to the flickr page and if you hover over some of the rings you read about their unique stories.
So, for Thing-a-Day 11, I am sharing this collection of my absolute favorite rings. I probably have another 30 in my ring boxes, but the ones pictured here are the most special to me. Oh, and that reminds me. I’ve been wanting to make a display ring box, like the one Rosa made. Here is her tutorial.
