Right after placing jointly two substantial ring collages (one & 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. Xmas 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 silver anklets for womenimmediately after visiting her store earlier in the year with silver dangle earringsLoveGold. 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!
