letterpress posts

I love these letterpress studs from Erica Weiner.  (I have her double letterpress necklace and I absolutely adore it!)  I am mesmerized by all the different combinations I would want to buy!

ring collection

Some of my favorite rings (and a rare glimpse of me with a manicure!).  I am a sucker for a good antique or antique replica ring!  From left to right... 1920s etched white gold band, my wedding ring set {1930s platinum channel set diamond wedding band, replica white gold channel set sapphire band, 1940s platinum box set Old European diamond engagement ring}, early 1900s white gold emerald cut aquamarine filigree ring, replica sterling silver marcasite cocktail ring (which I wore on my wedding day).

Happy Valentine's Day!  I have never been a die-hard fan of this holiday, but this year, it seems much more exciting because I get to celebrate it with my daughter.  There certainly is something special about a holiday dedicated to celebrate something as wonderful as love.  Also, now that I think about it, how can you go wrong with a holiday that promotes gifts of jewelry and chocolate?!  This ring would be my ideal V-day gift... sentiment in the form of jewelry.  (And even better, this ring is now available in a less expensive sterling silver version!)

jewelry on my mind

There are a few pieces of jewelry I just cannot stop thinking about (obsessing over, would be more like it!).  So here it is... my current top 4 jewelry wishlist!
1) This sapphire ring is pure perfection, from it's rose cut sapphire to it's east west pear setting.
2) You may think 2 sapphire rings on a wishlist might be a bit much, but I don't!  I have been searching daily online for an art deco platinum and yellow gold ring.
3) I so very much want a diamond necklace.  Just something small and simple.  This bezel set diamond slider pendant would be PERFECT!
4) I desperately (I mean desperately) want a Todd Pownell ring.  I would love to have a right hand diamond ring and this would be just the perfect combination of good design with a little bit of sparkle!
