Roberto Coin Hoops: an alternative to studs

Virtually every day of my life before I leave the house, I put in simple diamond studs. I’m usually wearing my workout clothes when I leave in the morning – just in case I get (make) a chance to work out so my earrings are usually the one little sparkle I incorporate into my appearance.

I recently went through my jewelry looking for something else when I ran across a single baby hoop earring wtih graduated diamonds running channel-set down the middle. I’m missing one, which is sad, but not catastrophic. I guess you’d just call them fashion jewelry – nothing expensive and definitely not genuine.

I did love them though and have often wanted to wear them as a change from my normal studs. Recently, I went looking for a more grown up – read REAL – pair and found these Roberto Coin baby hoops.

The thing I love the most about Roberto Coin is that he always incorporates a signature ruby into his jewelry and generally it’s on the clasp or closure . The reason this is so appealing  is because my birthstone also happens to be a Ruby. Supposedly the ancient Egyptians believed that wearing a Ruby against the skin brought love, happiness, good health and prosperity.

Who couldn’t use a little side of all that along with a splash of sparkle every day?

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Larabee Dot Ring Holder

Never has one designer done so much for the dot.

Seriously, polka dots were once relegated to little girls’ hair ribbons and scary clown outfits. But Kate Spade paired her “dots” with Lenox glass for the perfect, yet practical gift – the Larabee ring holder.

I’ve always wanted a ring holder. Every evening, I remove my diamond studs and wedding band. Sometimes, it’s in my bathroom. Sometimes in my jewelry box on my dresser. But if I’m tired and forget to take them off before bed, they eventually wake me in the night by digging into my ring finger or the side of my head.

So I asked for and recieved this adorable little ring holder to rest my daily jewelry staples. Another lovely outcome? I always know where they are in the morning. An added bonus for this girl who often misplaces things she can’t very well live without.
