If so, you have come to the right place! Also called midi rings or knuckle rings, these little rings are a perfectly elegant solution to which rings to wear - you can wear them one at a time, on any of your fingers (or on your thumb).
They are especially nice as "midi" (or knuckle) or thumb rings because they are thin enough to be completely comfortable wherever you wear them! Speaking of thumb rings, did you know that thumb rings symbolize strength and courage? Traditionally, a thumb ring was worn by archers to protect the thumb during firing. Who knew??
Everyone loves sterling silver earrings especially in the "stacking rings" category! Wear one, two, three or more - even as a "midi" or knuckle ring.
Fun fact: did you know that the most common ring size for women is size 7? I always make sure I make plenty of that size!

Recently, someone casually mentioned that I seemed to be a "dinosaur" in the jewelry industry because I make the vast majority of my jewelry by hand, using almost exclusively hand tools. Nothing is sent out for casting or anything else.
I will take that as a compliment!
Since I design and make jewelry with you in mind, I want you to have the best I can offer. I believe you want something special that will stand the test of time and be handed down to future generations.
So, I am doing business as a dinosaur! Long live the dinosaurs among us!

I have to say, sterling silver rings were one of the most popular pieces of jewelry in my booth this weekend at the Covington Three Rivers Art Festival. I will be spending time this week replenishing stock so that I will have plenty of these popular ring designs for all my upcoming shows!

The heart shape has been a part of human culture since the very beginning. It’s found in early cave drawings, though no one is exactly sure what its meaning was then. Ancient Egyptians associated the heart with life and mortality, and for Greek philosophers, the heart represented thought, reason and emotion. Hearts are abundant in the natural world in flowers, fruits, animals, and leaves. In the Middle Ages, heart shaped leaves began to show up in paintings depicting romantic love, and eventually shifted from green to red, a symbolic color of love and passion.
In the modern age, the heart symbol has become one of the most recognized on Earth. It evokes thoughts of love, affection, and loyalty, and is depicted especially at Valentine’s Day on everything from clothing, to stationary and cards, to chocolates and jewelry. The Cherish Collection has captured the heart and essence of its meaning in rings, earrings, and necklaces. The sterling silver wire used to craft these pieces allows for simple and elegant interpretations of the shape, letting it stand on its own. Freshwater pearls, believed on a metaphysical level to inspire love and acceptance, are the perfect match for the hearts in this love-inspired jewelry. Whether your Valentine is a lover, a friend, a daughter, a niece or a granddaughter, she will delight in wearing a piece from the Cherish Collection any time of year.
