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)
