Barbara Bixby’s Paisley Pavé Ring

One of my Valentine’s Day gifts from my husband was a gorgeous paisley ring by Barbara Bixby.  I’ve never seen a design quite like this one; it’s very unique!  I love it; definitely a go-to item!!!  Here is a description of the ring…

Paisley Pavé Ring

“It’s very difficult to make this domed, inlaid stone that’s obviously custom carved to fit into this shape, and to inlay the 18K gold and pavé section in the middle is a testimony to artistic craftsmanship. The softness of the blue chalcedony is enhanced by the 18K gold bezel and sparkling blue sapphire pavé. The graceful shank has two 18K gold signature flowers symbolizing spiritual awakening. As I thought about the traveling gypsy caravan, I loved the idea of using the paisley motif, as it’s a prevalent design motif in India where the gypsies are said to have originated. It represents both the time of harvest and the harvest of spiritual knowledge.”  —Barbara Bixby

“Paisley panache. A blue chalcedony gemstone in a bold paisley design takes center stage atop this sterling silver ring. Within the paisley design is an 18K yellow gold border framing stunning bead-set blue sapphires. A unique design highlights the bezel and shank, while 18K yellow gold flowers dazzle on the shoulders and a sterling silver flower blooms at the bottom of the shank. From Barbara Bixby.

Rachel Roy’s Koala Bear Ring

I’m still forming an opinion on Rachel Roy (not too familiar with her brand yet).  Her Koala Bear Ring has definitely given me a great first impression.  Koalas are dear to my heart; they are furry little lovable creatures.  I’ve never seen such a cute statement piece before; rarely has a koala bear appeared in fashion so this is very special indeed!..  Antique gold and crystal- sounds divine =).  You already know my love for Kenneth Jay Lane so this is to no surprise.

Isharya Accessories

Really terrific mixed media. These wood and metal accessories make a nice combo. They are more of “casual dress” items for me but I do suppose one can dress them up by pairing them with a solid black dress. There’s also a pretty collection of turquoise jewelry by Isharya. I’m very particular about turquoise jewelry especially since I’ve seen a lot of tacky ones that don’t bring out the unique beauty of this stone. I used to wear more bracelets than I do know. I lost a custom bracelet my parents gave me when I was in my teens. We searched everywhere for it to no avail =(. To this day, I still feel really bad about it.
