Weekend Recommend - Flashy Rings (Fashion Blog Post)

* I apologize for the strong attitude expressed in this fashion blog post. Please respect my opinion as I would yours.


Three things you shouldn't flaunt: money, appearance and brain power.

(Intentionally) advertising any of them makes you pretentious and self-absorbed.


Price-dropping expensive stuff.

"...can't believe I sweated through my Juicy...they are like $50 a pair...hahahahaha..."

I don't care about your 50-dollar gym pants. Please take a shower.

Or, assuming you're better-looking than everyone else.

" looked at me funny...she's jealous 'cause I'm beautiful..."

Get a life - BOTH of you.

This is my absolute favorite:

"...according to the law of (some statistician with a name no one can pronounce), 50% of this class has below-average intelligence..."

No sh*t. If you and I were the only people left on earth, one of us has to be stupid - statistically-speaking and all. (And if we were being chased by flesh-eating zombies, I don't want to be the smart one, just the fast one.)

What should you flaunt?

Your engagement ring.

Now I wouldn't go around announcing the price tag or name brand, but diamonds are meant to look flashy -- and no one can help that. Your ring is a symbol of love -- devotion from the person you've committed to build a family with. It's okay to flaunt how proud you are of the man you love.

Flashy rings I recommend:

1. IRIS/DIA from Scottish Wildflower Collection

I like the flower shape. It's unique and delicate. Suitable for a younger bride-to-be.


2. The Glasgow from Scottish Towns Collection

Three stones, half moon cut -- modern, classic. It's a show piece.


3. The Kerrera of the Scottish Islands Collection

I don't usually like emeral-cuts, but this ring looks solid, and without much BS. Perhaps for a powerful woman? Like an attorney?

4. The STRONSAY of the Scottish Islands Collection

Striking oval-cut solitaire, sleek design and maximum protection for stone. This ring is both beautiful and practical.

5. The ERISKAY of the Scottish Islands Collection

The heart-shaped shoulders got me. This ring is simply divine. Out of all the choices today, this is my favorite.

All rings today are from MaeVona by Maeve Gillies, multi-award-winning artist and designer, and proud Scott. Her passion for jewelry started at age 15, and she went on to obtain two degrees in jewelry and silversmithing. After three years as head of design for Domino in England, the largest Platinum jewelry manufacturer in Europe, Maeve went on to co-launch MaeVona. Her Celtic-inspired designs are ethnic, simple and one-of-a-kind, making her one of the freshest and most sought-after jewelers today.

And so am I.
