Obsession Thursday – Want it. See it. Own it! 

 

 

Recently, I have been drawn to rings and brooches – pure classic jewellery that never goes out of style. Whether it’s your wedding or engagement ring, a dressy stylish or cocktail ring, rings are the key to the door.

You have that elegant dress with a lovely pair of earrings and you are looking for that one thing to make your ensemble pop. Then you remember that beautiful, tasteful and exquisite piece of art you just spent a fortune on. Bamn! It never gets old! You slip it in and everything just glows. You get that Cinderella feeling except this time, it’s on your finger.

Truth be told, I don’t have and I haven’t made the types of rings that I love but a girl can only dream and my dream looks like this…

Price – £100 ie N26,000.

This is not meant for everyone but I love it. It is simple, casual yet sophisticated. The Lapis-Lazuli set on Sterling silver with beautiful 4mm Swarovski diamond cut Crystals is just sooooooooo Patricia. Anyone who knows me, will agree, abi? 

Price – £130  ie N33,800.

Ok, I don’t know what the idea behind this was but it is on a bed of fine gold so it must interest someone and if it does, feel free to say what draws you to it. Personally, I feel zilch. 

Price – £200 ie N52, 000.
