Ring Envy

I bought myself a Christmas present. Do I feel guilty about it? Well....I did a little bit until my husband bought himself a Garmin and a new Xbox. And a puppy. And is thinking about trading his motorcycle. Yeah. I don't feel guilty anymore. We are not made of money, but apparently the hubby doesn't know that. Anyway. On with my story.

I bought myself a ring from Huismus on Etsy. And a few days before Christmas, this beautiful package showed up in my mailbox!

Complete with shiny paper and a tiny black box; Simone had also included three gorgeous tags to use on gifts. I am a sucker for presentation, and the presentation of this gift was perfect. Tiny handmade confetti spotted the inside of the box, which (of course) held this most amazing ring!

I am in love with it! It is everything I was hoping for and more. The craftsmanship is beautiful. Its wide band and large face feel warm against my finger. It's comfortable. And the big chunk of creek jasper's hard to find words. Let's just say it speaks to me.

Look at it! Like a beautiful painting that I hang on my hand. The colors. The patterns. The metal. I am so glad that I splurged on this ring. I have a feeling it will be with me for many many years. (I also have a feeling that it may not be my last purchase from Huismus.) I highly recommend Simone's work if you are in the market for some new jewelry. Check her out.

I have other random news to share with you guys later. I don't want to muddy up the ring envy. One thing at a time. ;)

Ooh, it's gorgeous. I love splurging on things that I really really love. It doesn't happen often (I, too, am unfortunately not made of money) but when it does, it makes me happy. I think you deserve it :)

Hope you had a lovely Christmas. x

Oh la la — great piece, my friend! The bold look is fabulous, and I really like the side detail... it's pieces like this that we must say yes to — they are lifetime pieces :)

I hope that you have had the most wonderful Christmas, celebrating the birth of Jesus... and can you believe it's nearly New Year's Eve? How did that happen? I feel like I should still wrap more gifts for Christmas!

You've made my day! So happy you love the ring, thanks again!

Groet, Simone
