It was love at first glance when scrolling through my Instagram feed.  Isn’t that something you hear quite often now?!  Words one would have never of thought to utter a few years ago.  Instagram is THE place to fall head over heels for jewelry…even clothing, accessories, food…someone’s life!  I first laid eyes on the gold Marquise ring designed by Sharon Z Jewelry while browsing through my feed.  San Francisco-based jewelry boutique Zaver & Mor posted a photo featuring four of these rings–one in 14k gold, two in oxidixed silver and gold, and one in silver.  I was immediately drawn to the gold one, with the design being so boldly eye-catching.  I added the ring to last holiday season’s popular hashtag #gemgossipwishlist and as with any item on that list, I truly hoped to own it one day.

That day has finally come!  Adding this ring to my collection and owning something from Sharon Z Jewelry is like taking a piece of her creativity into your own life.  When I wear the ring, I immediately can see and feel what inspires her handcrafted works of art–things like geometric lines, free-flowing energy, and modern architectural elements.  Sharon says, “Jewelry is the one art form that people interact with directly on a daily basis. It connects the wearer and the maker in a tactile and sensual relationship. This intimacy with art is what most interests me.”  She is totally right.  The wearer and the maker become connected on a unique level.  Although I’ve never met Sharon in person before, I seemingly understand her a bit through her pieces she handcrafts. This can only be said for designers who hone their craft and put their heart and soul into each piece. I can tell, this is apparent in Sharon’s everyday life.

I mixed the organic shape and flowing lines of the gold Marquise ring by Sharon Z Jewelry with some vintage favorites–even a Victorian garnet stickpin I converted into a ring myself by bending the stick into the best hoop-shape possible without any tools! The makeshift ring added a splash of richness with the garnet hues and bright green enamel leaf.  Being such a bold design, the brushed gold of the Marquise ring lends a softness to it, which made it ideal to pair it with the muted blush color of angelskin coral.  I’m excited to see what else I can mix and match this ring with, even though it is amazing on its own I like creating some unexpected combinations.  I will definitely treasure this ring forever!
