Not long ago, my mother was going through her jewelry drawer and came across the ring you see here, which had belonged to my grandmother, and which I surprised myself by loving. It covers a lot of ground, this ring, swirling and coiling well past the knuckle in a shape that—as you can see—at first comes off serpent-ish, but clearly is not a snake. That front-and-center eye makes it clear this is meant to be an animate object of some sort, but what? Some have suggested a figure from Egyptian mythology. One friend is convinced it’s a sloth. I am certain we will never know for sure. What I do know is that this ring has unlocked in me a passion for the kind of outsize, just-a-little-too-much rings I’ve always admired on others, but have been afraid to try for myself.
Like this big bold bird. So totally not my thing, and yet suddenly so right up my alley.
This also has a kind of Grandma’s Jewelry Drawer energy that I can fully get behind.
Well, why not wear a little geode-looking thing right on your finger?
This one is almost too straightforwardly pretty to fit with today’s theme, but I’m allowing it anyway on account of its awesomeness.Tags: Adina Mills, Ariella Collection, Nordstrom, Totokaelo
