Looking, playing and designing with beautiful gemstones has cured me of my insatiable jewelry collecting habit. I no longer feel the need to own and hoard jewelry. I now hoard gemstones! There's no stopping me when I see something I love...you know the feeling...it's mine no matter what.

Cocktail Rings with a Vintage Angle
I find myself attached(briefly)to certain styles. I'm usually only entertained by most things for a short time. Right now I just love the Matte Jade Ring and Lemon Quartz Nugget Ring. They both are a bit surreal and remind me of vintage Lucite or celluloid. Even the shapes of these stones are vintage. And where else but in vintage pieces is one going to find stones used standing up like these? I must say that the Matte Green Jade Ring is not for the timid. It is of a very good size stone and a bona fide cocktail ring that won't go un-noticed. It's muted matte green serves perfectly to understate it's size and shape. The scallop gold tip adds to it's vintage feeling. Just love them both!
