As I creep ever closer to my 26th birthday, I’m starting to reflect on the fact that – contrary to what my chubby lil’ cheeks would imply – I’m actually getting older. And as I am getting older, there’s an increasing number of things that I am OVER, that cause me to get all “ain’t nobody got time for that!” The list of things that I no longer have time for includes (but is not limited to): the Daily Mail sidebar, heels that squash my toes, trying to make halter necks suit me aaaand rings that turn my finger green. Yes, important stuff.
LUCKILY FOR ME, this last one at least is slowly becoming a thing of my foolish, green-fingered (but not in a gardening way) past. Thanks to jewellery brand Gemporia*, I am now the super proud owner of a number of sterling silver, genuine gemstone rings that will absolutely not make my fingers look like they’re going mouldy. Success.
I’ve actually been familiar with Gemporia as a brand for a couple of years, as I used to work on them a bit back when I worked in a digital agency. So I’ve been familiar with their ethos for quite a while – and that is good quality, precious metal and gemstone jewellery at reasonable prices. It’s exactly the sort of brand I need in my life now, at the stage where I want nicer quality things but still haven’t achieved baller status with my money (one day, one day).
So when I was invited to pick a couple of items from the brand, I had no doubts that it would be a good choice. I opted for the Amethyst Sterling Silver Ring (£15.00) , the Diamond Sterling Silver Stacker Rings (£28.99) and the Iolite Bridge Maxi Stacking Ring (£29.00). They’re all lovely on their own, but also complement each other so well.
As the rings are sterling silver as opposed to costume jewellery, you do have to order them in your proper ring size. I didn’t know what mine was and so used a makeshift measuring device thing and the internet to try to work it out. This was a bit of a fail as I ordered a size or two bigger than I probably should, meaning that I can only wear the rings on my middle finger or thumb. But all this really means is I’ve got a good excuse to order more Gemporia rings for my ring and index fingers – huzzah!
Have any of you tried Gemporia, or would you like to? Let me know in the comments!
