Whimsy Rings


I have a love of jewelry. I especially like unique pieces that you can't find in every store in every mall in America. I have a "diamond" necklace that Jackson bought me with points he earned at school a couple years ago. It means the world to me because instead of buying toys and candy for himself, he saved up points from October until December and bought this for me.
And, of course, I treasure the macaroni necklaces my kids have made me over the years. I love it when people comment on my jewelry finds. :)


That's why I adore these rings from Whimsy Worldwide. These rings are so unique and fun! They showcase the totally popular, collectible Trollbeads, Pandora and Chamilia glass beads. You can change the beads to match your outfit or mood. If you have a Pandora (or similar) bracelet, then you already have an array of beads that fit into this ring. You can have fun switching them whenever the mood strikes! If you don't, you'll soon fall in love with collecting these beads and showing them off on your Whimsy ring!





I do think these rings are on the pricey side ($125 - $399), but the fact that you can change the bead makes it versatile so it's like you're getting more than one piece of jewelry. And the comments and compliments you'll receive on your ring make it worth the price.

At first I was a little afraid to try and open the ring to switch beads because I didn't want to break it, but they're amazingly strong and durable. And they're made of 100% reclaimed sterling silver and 14 karat gold. This was a conscious decision by ring designer, R. Craig Whitten in an effort to help counter the effects of the top toxic polluter in the U.S., the mining industry.

Whimsy has another ring, the Audrey, coming out this fall with a threaded post that makes it even easier to switch beads. This ring was inspired by the elegance of film star, Audrey Hepburn, and can accommodate some of the larger, shaped beads as well.

You can shop online HERE or click HERE to find a retailer near you. These would make a great Christmas gift for any special lady in your life. (hint hint)

Want a chance to win your very own Whimsy Ring? Visit the Whimsy website HERE and browse through the beads. Then, leave me a comment with your favorite one. I'll pick a random winner on Monday, September 28.

These rings are gorgeous, Dawn. My daughter would love one. The Hannah is just beautiful. I have a Chamelia bracelet and would love to add some of the beads here. It is great to know that they have rings that are just as versatile. Thanks for the link.

Ooh! Pick me, pick me! Saturday was my birthday and I spent the weekend taking care of my 3 year-old daughter and hubby who both have the flu and now my throat is scratchy too.

Anyway, I've never seen them before now but I really love these rings. My favorite WHIMSY ring is the Hannah with the Aqua Swirl Chamilla Bead.

What a great idea! Making a ring that fits pandora and other beads...inovation. It's so American! My favorite beds were the turtles! How stinkin' cute are those?! What a great reminder to get out of our shells and experience something new! Thank you for the recommendation!

Pink or aqua swirl - delicate and feminine.
