Initialed Pinky Rings, Yay or Nay?

Yay! The initialed pinky ring trend has been big in the men’s fashion world for many many years. This trend was rarely seen on women, but it has been 10882010_474952719312094_1181456205_nslowly becoming a “thing” in our fashion world. The first time I saw it was on Kate Bosworth’s Instagram account (image to the right); her husband gave her a pinky ring with her married initials on, really cute. I thought it was a beautiful piece of jewelry and a great idea as an engagement/marriage ring. From there I began to see it more and more, on covers and on fashion editorials.

I really love pinky rings in general but this initialed pinky rings I love the most. The pinky rings that I’ve seen so far are normally fine rings, the fact that this pinky ring is a bit chunkier makes it even more of a statement and special piece of jewelry. The chunky gold ring plus the initial also gives a bit of a gangster vibe to the person wearing it, which as I’ve said before I can’t resist. A designer that does initial rings that could easily be transformed into pinky rings is Jennifer Fisher.

What’s New in the Jewelry World? Limited Edition Valentine’s Day Repossi

 Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 7.35.59 PM

Repossi came out with their new, limited edition, Valentine’s Day line today. Everything is fuschia! I’m not sure what I think of it yet, I feel I have to see it in person or see it on someone to have a better judgment on it. For now I like the Antifer heart ring, the Antifer two row round ring and the Serti sur Vide ring.

I think very high of Repossi. I believe that for a jewelry lover/ collector to have a full collection they must have at least one Repossi piece in their collection. But, with that being said I think that buying a Valentine’s Day Repossi is not so worth it. The reason why I say this is because although a few pieces of their new line are indeed very cool, the color is not easy to match and it is a color that you can get easily tired of. With the price of a Repossi ring reaching and exceeding an average of $3,000 a piece (depending on the ring obviously) I doubt you want to get tired of it or never be able to wear it!

If you’re considering buying, I would personally go classic with a pink gold, black gold (black rhodium) or yellow gold.
