Sometimes when I’m on the internet, I stumble upon things that I think are way more interesting than they actually are. This post, for example.
I first saw the ring above a couple weeks ago and went, Wow! I’ve been obsessing lately over semi-masculine rings with a harsh, rugged, darkness to them. Rings, like my favs below, that are certainly non-blingy. I’ve never been into bling that much. (My wedding and engagement rings are probably the least ceremonial of wedding and engagement rings … ever. Two little oxidized silver branches with the tiniest yellow sapphire known to man? I love it.)

So this little oxidized silver band with a perfectly tiny brass triangle was happy to me.
Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge wore a little collection of them oh-so perfectly below. But at $20 a piece am I going to want to buy 6 of them?? That will probably never happen.
Good thing I discovered this little ring on Etsy yesterday! It comes from blogger/artist Jennifer Hagler of A Merry Mishap and is available on her Etsy shop. At $11.99 a piece, they may be a little more affordable if you are in need of stacking rings. But the triangle is made of polymer clay rather than brass, and the band is an adjustable black metal, not silver, and it s noticeably chunkier than the first ring. What do you think? Is it worth the eight dollar price drop? The Stone & Honey is just so delicate looking; a good way to offset the masculine feel of it.
In the end, here’s to two lovely rings! Cheers.
