Here’s a confession: I’m really not that big into jewelry.
I know, I am a girl. How can it be that I am not into jewelry, you ask?
Don’t get me wrong, I like jewelry and I do have a few pieces that are dear to my heart, but in general, I don’t really care for jewelry too much.
For example, I don’t wear any ear rings besides a little stud in my right auricle. I don’t even have my earlobes pierced, which is pretty much unheard of, right?
I literally have three rings that I wear. The first two are my very simple wedding band and “pseudo-engagement ring” (I never had an engagement, let alone a real proposal, and I bought the ring with the stone for myself when I picked out our wedding bands. I know, self do, self have :) As you can see, I really like it simple, the ring with the stone is “tiny” in comparison to the big rings that other girls get for their engagements).
The other ring that I wear is a tiny, vintage turquoise Native American ring that I bought my Mom bought for me at the Furnace Creek Ranch in Death Valley on our three week vacation in 2007. It was one of the rings that I just had to have, because I found it so beautiful (which doesn’t happen very often).
Those are basically the only 4 pieces of jewelry that I constantly wear.
The only part where I like to mix it up a little is the necklace department. Sometimes, I don’t wear a necklace at all, but I have a few pieces that I love and that I alternatively wear on a regular basis.
The necklace above is a new addition, but nothing fancy. It’s a souvenir from Hawaii – a cheap, tinted coconut shell necklace that I found at the promenade. I just loved the color and had to buy it. It will always remind me of my 24 hours in Waikiki Beach!
