Put a Ring On It

It’s certainly no secret that I have a thing for accessories. More is more, at least most of the time. I can be fairly picky, though, when it comes to jewelry – I like pieces that have a little “I don’t know what” (that’s English for “Je ne sais quoi”). And recently my eyes were caught (what a disgusting phrase, right?) by jewelry designer Cathy Waterman.

Full disclosure: I initially stumbled across Waterman around the time that a few of my pals became engaged – now, before any male that reads this blog (population: probably no one) recoils in horror, please know that I was not looking at engagement rings for myself. We do not celebrate delusion here at HJR. However, I was looking at engagement rings out of curiosity, because they were something toward which I had literally put no thought until my friends started to don them. (Yiiiikes I just said a lot about my last relationship, didn’t I).

In any case (this post is spiraling), I found her rings to be not only beautiful but also so very unique. And then of course I looked into all of her fine baubles, and the rest of the jewelry gang is pretty gorgeous, too.

Waterman’s clearly not afraid of a floral motif, which I adore, and she seems to have “whimsy” in mind when designing many of her pieces.

I am infatuated with this tiny flower ring,  but not nearly as much as I am with this super-cool oval blue opal daisy ring.  The ring up top, though? I mean… it’s hideous (I am lying). If you really want to go crazy (and if you’re very much rolling in it, “it” being money), how about this loooovely gem?

Thanks for diamond dwelling with me. You’re real pals.
