The Ring

So awhile back I told y'all about my big 21st birthday gift! My parents and I decided on a signet ring in December. Because of Christmas timing and everything, the ring would not be ready for 6-8 weeks when I wouldn't be home. I got over it, and knew I'd be reunited with my ring over Spring Break.

Well my sneaky Mom shipped it to me hidden among my Valentine's dresses and candy. I was shocked when I first saw it: it was PERFECT!
Sorry it's a little blurry, I have quite a shaky hand in the Macro setting on my camera! Anyway, I went with a traditional monogram with cRa and I wear it on my left hand ring finger. We got this signet ring from a local jeweler in Annapolis where we've gotten a few other pieces before. The script on the ring is special to the jeweler and I have a silver cuff that I got for being my sister's Confirmation sponson that has the matching script.

My right hand ring finger is occupied by my graduation ring:
I posted about this awhile back, I'm still in love with this ring every time I see it. It's a Pandora ring, and part of their stackable line--I see it often on Pinterest actually! I get a little chuckle whenever I see people pin it!

I don't really wear a lot of jewelry regularly, but I wear these two rings 24/7. They both are very special and I am reminded of my family every time I look at them. Both were given to me for momentous occasions in my life and they always put a smile on my face! I know this update took long enough, but I'm excited to share with everyone!

Are there pieces of jewelry in your collection that are special to you?

Oh my gosh, I love both of those rings! I'm not a big jewelry person myself either, but I do wear my high school class ring and the ring I got for my 16th birthday. But your rings are beautiful!

Is there a "correct" way to wear a signet ring? I've read conflicting rules. Some say little finger of left hand, or of the non-dominant hand, and some say the ring finger of the right hand for women.

I wear my pearl earrings daily. They were given to me as a college graduation present. I also usually wear a Kate Spade bangle that I bought for myself after completing my first semester of graduate school with a 4.0.

Sometimes I wear a pearl strand that was my great-grandmother's.

Very cute! My (obvious) most favorite ring is my wedding band. Love it so much that when I'm not wearing it, I always feel a bit 'naked.' x

Love the ring!

Like you, I don't wear a lot of jewelry.

I wear a ring on the middle finger of my left hand- alternating between my high school ring and a black & white diamond marquee ring.

I used to always wear a sapphire cross necklace every day, but I recently inherited my grandfathers high school ring, which I have put on a silver chain and now wear on a daily basis.

On occasion, I'll wear diamond or sapphire earrings, or bracelets, but nothing on daily basis.
