‘Ring’-ing In Spring

Hello from a very wet and rainy Connecticut! Hoping the storms pass soon – my mom is coming to town tomorrow – spending a few days in New York to kick off the mother/daughter weekend! Planning on shopping, eating and seeing Jersey Boys! Can’t wait.

Since when has Old Navy had an extensive inexpensive jewelry collection? The one near my apartment in Hartford has a huge section! Fun pieces, even better prices. Anyways, when I was at Old Navy the other day picking up my spring staples: cardigans and tank tops, I grabbed this fun ring for $8. Boom. I love big, fun, right-hand rings – here are a few spring favs I found online.


Old Navy, $8


Epoxy Stackable Ring, $7.99 at Target


Tahari Pink Stone Openwork Stretch Ring, $50 at Macy’s


Faceted Dome Ring, $19.90 at The Limited


Maroon Cocktail Ring, $34.37 on Etsy

Have a great week – and have fun ringing in spring!


In Honor of Oz

This morning over coffee and SportsCenter, I was flipping through today’s issue of the New York Post and came across their awesome feature on Oz-inspired (emerald) jewelry. By the way…a huge perk of working for ESPN, they are owned by Disney, which means advanced screenings to movies! Got my passes to see Oz: The Great and Powerful tomorrow night. Beyond excited! Check out the trailer:

Anyways, the article in the NYP completely inspired me to find my own favorite emerald pieces. Personally, I don’t think you can go wrong with emerald – looks great with all skin complexions! And, as an added bonus, emerald is a spring 2013 Pantone color.

And now, a few emerald beauties…in honor of Oz.
