Put A Ring On It

By AngellaD on Dec. 18, 2012 at 12:00 AM

I am a person who cannot leave the house without wearing some jewelry. Nothing fancy, but I feel completely naked without a few staples. My watch on my left wrist, and a necklace -- be it casual or fancier -- around my neck are the bare minimum of what I don myself with (aside from clothes, natch) before I leave the house. Oh, and the engagement ring/wedding band on my left hand. Of course.

Last Christmas, my husband suprised me and bought me a ring. A ring! He chose sapphires because they "reminded him of my eyes" and it is the prettiest ring that I never knew I wanted.

I have a lot of friends who love to wear big, chunky rings. Before receiving this ring, the only rings I wore were the engagement/weddng ring combo. Now that I have this pretty ring on my right hand (and can't go a day without wearing it), I can see how people love to decorate their fingers.

I've started giving big, fun rings as gifts and suggest that you do as well. Etsy is a good recource, as is any department store, or even little boutiques.

Do you like to wear rings? Do you give rings as gifts?

  • The only rings I wear are my engagement and wedding ring. I do not give rings as gifts. I prefer necklaces.

  • I don't wear rings a lot (even my wedding ring) because I wash my hands and apply lotion so much--I end up taking them off a lot and I'm afraid I'll lose them, so I don't even bother with them most days.
