Finally Feels Like Fall

image

I decided to take blog pictures at 6 last night so the pictures are all really dark. Silly me can’t remember that it gets dark early now.

I’m finally getting back to blogging more often. Since I haven’t been doing this for very long and my posts are already sporadic, I feel like I should get myself together and get on a normal schedule. I’m still getting used to having two jobs again. I got lucky and was able to go home for part if the weekend. I got Bubble Tea and jambalaya from River House and I got to see everyone at Vintage Rose for a bit.
Since Macomb does not have a Goodwill or a Salvation Army, I went to two of them this weekend and I got part of my Halloween costume and a pretty new red wool coat for $6! I am never paying full price for a winter coat again!

My necklace was given to me by a dealer from Vintage Rose as a going away present. It’s 1920s, red, and a bow…so what not to love about it?

Dress: Kohls
Knee Socks: Target
Combat Boots: Wet Seal
Earrings: swapped

My Favorite Rings Part Two

These last couple rings are my favorites in design and style. They’re all pretty unique.

As soon as I saw this ring I just could not take it off my hand. I left Vintage Rose with it that day. It is 10k gold with a great braided band that first drew me to the ring. The swallow and the crescent moon are Victorian motifs. I think this was originally a stick pin and then turned into a ring in the 1920s or 30s. It catches on my clothes but I love it to much to not wear it.

This is a newer ring than most of my others. It’s 1960s Avon and it is my absolute favorite ring. I have kinda short stubby fingers so smaller rings don’t fit on them. But this ring can be expanded and it fit perfectly right away on my thumb. When I’m not wearing it, I can still feel it on my finger. That’s how much I wear this ring.

I know the last picture is a little dark, but it’s the best way I could show the detail in this ring. A while back I had a big cameo phase. I still like them, but I don’t wear most of my cameo jewelry much. But, I love the shape and color of this ring. It’s a perfect pinkie ring and looks great on. It’s 1920s or 30s. The detail in the cameo isn’t the best, but it was the cameo I could afford and I still love it.

To give an idea of a cameo with really fantastic detail (that I would love to own), this is a picture if a cameo pin that is still available to buy at Vintage Rose!

The detail in her hair is the most impressive part. Also, the blue-green background is not a common color for cameos. Everything about this pin is flawless.

Thanks for reading! I’ll be doing more outfit posts soon!

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Rings: Part One

I LOVE RINGS.

My hand feels naked without them. During the school year, it is impossible to be able to wear them more than once or twice a week, since my dance classes are very strict about no jewelry.

But during breaks and summers, it is common to find me with 4 or 5 rings on all the time. They all could be standout pieces, but I prefer the look of wearing them all together. I have kinda short, stubby fingers and I feel that my rings elongate the look of my hands and make them a little more refined looking, in a Bohemian-I’m-wearing-rings-on-every-finger kinda way.

These are the seven rings that I alternate between all the time. Some I always wear, some are more novelty pieces to me.

This ring is so fun. It’s my sterling buckle. Several buckle rings came in the store all at the same time and the one I really wanted was 14k white gold. But as that was out of my price range, I happily settled for this one.

image

The design makes it appear rather Celtic in my opinion and that’s part of what I like about it. Buckle rings come in such interesting designs. Right now we have a mourning buckle ring at Vintage Rose. (If you don’t know anything about mourning jewelry, I suggest looking into it. It’s very interesting in a morbid kind of way.)

I think I get the most compliments from this ring. It’s a sterling reproduction from the 50’s of the 1920’s white gold filigree style. I’ve had two of these rings. This one has the emerald cut amethyst and my last one had teardrop shaped blue topaz. The topaz was gorgeous but it was slightly cloudy and once I found this I was in love. I sold my topaz in the store to a lady who had always admired it.
The flowers in the filigree are so cute! Next time I get a 1920s-esque ring, I want bows in the filigree (of course).

image

I’ve never been a huge snake fan, but I thought this one was so cute and it looks great on! It’s one of my lesser-worn rings because it requires a certain sort of outfit.

image

My boss gave me this as a graduation present. At first I thought it was onyx, but I realized it is one if the darkest sapphires I have ever seen. It’s is flanked with diamond chips and set in 10k white gold. I love the simplicity of the cut and the design.

When you look at it sideways it had this fun diamond and swirl pattern!

That’s all for now! I will post about my three FAVORITE rings next time!
