Through the years I’ve accumulated a pretty diverse jewelry collection. I have Nepalese bracelets I brought from a street vendor in Savannah, star ruby earrings made from gemstones I went panning for in North Carolina, and friendship necklaces left over from high school. Most of my pieces are inexpensive, the stones are real, but not gemstone quality, and they are gold plated vs. 24k. I have been carefully collecting and preserving the few nice things that have made it my way, like the matching pearl necklace, earrings & bracelet that my mom and aunt gave me for my sixteenth birthday. Currently, my more valuable pieces have all been gifts, but I am starting to look at investing in a few simple things like these stack-able rings from Catbird.
In the grand scheme of things, these rings aren’t really all that expensive, but since I want to purchase several of them….they sort of add up. Side note: I am finding myself oddly attracted to rose gold as of late.
