My everyday jewelry includes my wedding band, engagement ring and the pearl and diamond earrings that belonged to my Grandmother. I love the simplicity of wearing the same jewelry each day but sometimes I want to mix things up a bit, which can be tricky to balance with the need to keep things work-appropriate. I find that while I love bracelets, they are troublesome to wear when I have to type (always) and that longer, funkier necklaces often don't pair well with my work clothes.
Rings, on the other hand, are easy to wear and generally don't interfere with work activities. It is nice to wear a ring on my right-hand occasionally and while I love the super bling-y right-hand rings featured in the famous De Beers advertising campaign in 2003, those rings are a bit out of my price range. Plus, I prefer something a bit more understated and delicate. In my opinion, simple is often better.
A few of my favorite designers are featured below, including Daisy Knights, Kiel Mead and Finn Jewelry. It was the love knot from Finn Jewelry that originally caught my eye in the June 2009 Vogue Magazine (see the image above) and again in the NY Times 2009 Holiday Gift Guide and started me thinking about a dainty right-hand-ring. My feminine side leans more toward knots, bows and hearts where my funkier side loves the feather, the wings, the snake and the skull featured below. What do you think?
Below are the Finn Jewelry love knot rings that come in a variety of metals and with or without gemstones. I particularly love the rose gold version...
As a side note, I have heard recently about people receiving gifts of jewelry from their husbands or partners when they have a baby. One of these rings might be a great option!
