We all wish that we had more money. Sometimes we pretend that we have more money than we actually do and walk around expensive shops. Or online shop on Chanels website without actually hitting the “purchase” button.
Okay, maybe it’s just me but still.
We all wish we had a little more money to spend on ourselves. It’s okay to admit it. Every once and a while I compile a list of everything I want, go to the cheapest item, and then I try to figure out ways I could buy it. I’ve never been able to buy anything but it gives me hope. Maybe a false sense of hope but it’s still hope.
The other day I was strolling through Neimans on a casual Tuesday afternoon, as a broke college student does, when my jaw dropped. I hadn’t window shopped in so long. It was like a whole new world. I felt so out of touch. SO incase you are feeling out of touch as well.. let me show you the light!
I love jewelry. I don’t always wear it, but I LOVE IT. But when it came to getting a class ring in high school I knew I wouldn’t wear it. I didn’t and don’t want to be reminded of high school everyday. Plus they looked weird on my hands and they were severely overpriced.
So I kept chugging along looking at rings. THEN COLLEGE. I started browsing last semester (I’m a junior right now) and I slowly started to fall in love with alternative class rings, the only issue was that they were so hard to find! I searched for so stinking long. But now my issue is trying to narrow it down… I don’t know what is more difficult, searching for rings I like or narrowing them down. Geez, can you imagine how long I’m going to take to pick out an engagement ring?
I was so hesitant to look at David Yurman rings. I personally think most of their jewelry is a little too bulky and not my style. BUT their newer collections are so gorgeous! I put the ring on my finger and I fell in love. I’m assuming it’s the same feeling someone gets when they choose a wedding dress. I don’t know for sure but it felt so right on my finger!
I love a good signet ring, they are gorgeous and timeless. Personally, I wouldn’t want my university’s logo (is it called a crest?) is on a ring (there are a few exceptions, you’ll see). But I’d love to treat myself to a cute signet ring for graduation. It’s like a nice pat on my back, you know? I deserve it.
Sooo this is my logo/crest thing exception (besides a&m rings… those things are so beautiful). San Jose Jewelers have an amazing collection. Their rings are modern and just gorgeous. They look so new and fresh! I have been talking to people who own one of their rings and I haven’t heard one complaint. Well, the only complaint I hear is that they didn’t customize. Not really, a complaint, complaint, but you get it!
SO, what are y’all’s thoughts? Let me know if you have any more suggestions.. Which one is your favorite? I need help!
