three easy pieces

May 1, 2013

i'm not one for jewelry. really. can't stand the stuff. mostly because i hate putting it on. there are three pieces i wear on a daily basis: the aquamarine ring my younger brother gave me for my thirty-fifth birthday, the james avery ring i purchased in college station and a fossil watch. the watch gets replaced each year at least once because i am too rough with it. this one i got for christmas. about two months in, i'd already cracked the glass (see that little horizontal slice right around the three o'clock marker? yeah. that). and it's got gobs of scratches all around the dial.

that's it. somedays, i don't even wear these things. of course, i always feel weird when i leave the house without my rings--one for each hand. i kind of feel like by wearing them i'm taking my brothers with me.

  1. I am in love with your aquamarine ring!! I also like the sentiment behind it... Thanks for linking up!

  2. I have tons of jewelry, but rarely wear it. I wear my staple pieces (ring and necklace) and that's it. I think I love collecting it, but not actually wearing it.
