Rhinestones and Bling and Rings, Oh My!

Rings are so fun and festive!  I love jewelry and I simply adore rings.  Given their unique historical significance and symbolism, you can convey many things with rings without saying a word.  Rings became most popular during Medieval times, and the material from which the ring was made typically indicated the class of the wearer.  Placement of rings is also important.  Did you know that wearing a ring on your "ring" finger represents connection to the heart?  This is why the wedding ring is traditionally placed on this finger.  




 Some of my favorite rings, including a couple of Christmas Gifts from my hubby!
Michal Negrin, my very favorite designer!

Now I hope you all "ring" in the New Year with fun, safe and festive celebrations!
