After putting together two large ring collages (1 & 2) full of potential gift options, this Christmas I was left wondering what would be under my tree. The holiday season is the perfect time of year to gift a memorable piece of jewelry. Rings are very personal. Giving a ring as a holiday gift almost guarantees a special memory which will forever go along with it. I was actually just saying this the other day when my mom asked me a detailed question about last Christmas, and I honestly couldn’t remember certain details from that day. But I could tell you which ring out of my collection I received that year, along with some memories that went with it!
Last year, Matt got me five golden rings, each he picked out himself except for the double-finger ring from Elisa Solomon. Christmas 2011 and 2012 were also ones for the memory books. This year, Matt surprised me with a ring he picked out himself, found on eBay. It has such a unique style and swoops down into a point, with a braided style of 18k yellow gold. I love lapis, and a tear-drop shaped lapis at the point sets it off perfectly.
I also unwrapped a gift I’ve been waiting for for a few months–a ring specially designed for me by LFrank Jewelry using a bi-color quartz I provided. I fell in love with Liseanne’s aesthetic after visiting her store earlier in the year with LoveGold. I had to have that buttery-matte gold with lots of prongs, all done in 18k. It turned out better than I expected, and it really shows off the unique gemstone.
Two surprises from designer friends–Misa Jewelry diamond branch ring in 14k gold and an 18k yellow gold lucky clover ring from Elisa Solomon made my holiday complete! Unexpected gift-giving is one of the best aspects of this time of year…and it reminded me to pay it forward. Although the holidays are now over 350 days away, next year I hope to expand on good-deed-doing and I hope you will join me! A little gift of gold can go a long way!
