She didn’t like to spend the day in one place. She had one of those adventurous spirits. She liked to walk instead of drive. She liked Elvis on vinyl. She preferred a white t-shirt and jeans to dresses and sandals. Her nail polish was dark and her eyes were light. She appreciated long conversations about politics and poetry. Her rings were always unique, reflecting her personality.

The sky was a deep violet with pops of starlight scattered within it, like sugar crystals spilling onto a picnic blanket. Slowly, as they sat there, on the edge of the pier overlooking the lake, the sky turned into pink, taking the glow of the stars with it. It changed to yellow, as the sun peaked over the horizon, and they made hot cocoa by the campfire. She wore a ring on her finger, with a gemstone, and with love. It was this time last year, right here, just like this, when he asked and she said yes.

I figured that my obsession with Art Deco would have faded by now, it’s been years, but honestly I just keep feeding it with rings like this. The 1920’s has my soul. Just look at the chevron and fan motif on this ring! It’s geometric and sturdy, bold and detailed. During Art Deco, diamonds were placed over onyx for a sharp black and white contrast that fit the dynamic feel of the times. It’s a ring design that has swept me off my feet and stolen my heart.

I’ve always found stones with blue hues to be rather calming. Aquamarines are the color of the water on a sunny day, without a cloud in sight. The name is Latin for, “water of the sea”, as the most revered aquamarines were a natural bluish-green shade. They were first documented around 480 BC and symbolized eternal youth and happiness. I can tell you that this vintage stunner makes me indubitably happy! So, our ancestors were certainly onto something.
