Shiny Objects

Pregnancy is hard, y’all. I’m miserable 24/7 with all my never-ending symptoms of nausea, vomiting, heat strokes, sore hips, clumsiness, and many many more. I’ve hit the 18th week marker and I’m still throwing up with the gusto of any first trimester mom. What gives?!

Online shopping is pretty therapeutic so I bought myself a ring. And oh, what a ring! This might be the prettiest ring I own right now! It’s a 3-stone champagne morganite with CZ stones all up around it set in sterling silver. The stones are lab created but so what? Gorgeous as can be! Don’t mind my chipping manicure as you stare into its amber depths.

Now this is the ring that my hubby chose for me on Valentine’s Day, or more accurately, as a present for carrying his child. It’s the hardest thing I’ll ever do. So this massive thing is a pink tourmaline cut in a cabochon style set in 10K yellow gold. It’s big and bold but not my style so we went back to exchange and resize. 

This beauty is very special to me. I felt like a giddy high roller in that jewelry shop as I designed my own custom ring from scratch! The shop had many natural gems to choose from but I ended up selecting this brilliant cut peridot as it’s the birthstone of my hubby and also of my unborn child. Just look at that delightful pear green hue! Then I chose a 14K white gold setting with 2 mini side stone diamonds. How simple and classy is this ring? It did cost a pretty penny but this particular jewelry store didn’t have a return policy so we had to exchange it for at least that value and more. The band looks fine in pictures but there is hardly any weight and feel to it. Half of it is hollow and super light. I do prefer simple, non-stone studded bands but I don’t mind a little heft and weight to them!

John bequeathed his immortality to me in the Christmas of 2011. Since then, I have found momentous occasions to wear this stunning piece of authentic LOTR jewelry out. It especially delights me when someone recognizes it and tries to remember the name of Arwen’s necklace. John had the idea when we were re-watching The Two Towers and The Noble Collection pamphlet fell out. There were a lot of useless, overpriced collectibles like Gandalf’s staff and Gimli’s axe, but there were also beautiful replicas of the one ring and elven jewelry. It was the perfect gift for a girly, fashionable nerd like me :).
