Casting Shadows Of Love

Casting Shadows Of Love

One of YD’s team members is soon to tie the knot, and I’m sure he must have picked the ring already. But just in case he hasn’t I’d like to suggest the “Heart Of Love”, a symbolic expression of love. The ring and pendent design try and replicate the ever-popular image of a wedding ring on the bible with casted “love” shadow, and do a pretty good job of it. Call it trick photography or simply the play of lights; undoubtedly it can’t get mushier or romantic than this!

This Ring Caves

This Ring Caves

The brilliance is the top priority here. That diamond’s got to shine, got to shine, got to shine. Sparkles will be had aplenty when you’ve got this momma on. This is the Solitaire Reflect Refraction Engagement Ring by Paul Cremoux W., and it’s just gorgeous. Not only is it fantastically rapid prototyped with 18K gold and a Rodio metal ultra reflective finish, it’s sculpted to the proportions of the gods. The gods of science!

Charm A Way To Remind A Day

Charm A Way To Remind A Day

Here’s something novel. If you have problems remembering what all needs to be done today, never mind making a to-do list. Just slap on a couple charms and walk out the door. See, the Charming Reminder is a chain with 9 charms each corresponding to some common events. I’m not sure an umbrella, newspaper, telephone, key, letter, plug, shoe, present, and a basket are enough to rep. your daily life, but if it is, might I suggest some spontaneity?

The Perfect Gift For Your Woman

The Perfect Gift For Your Woman

It’s quite apparent that all ladies will have a soft corner for the Accessories MP3 Player. Honestly, how many MP3 players can be as subtle and discreet as this! Fashion statement, jewelry, bling…you name it, and it’s there! I adore the little loop earring that goes into the ear as headphones, now only if Cartier or Tiffany can get a whiff of this…

When DuPont Corian Married Fashion

When DuPont Corian Married Fashion

In the wicked mind of designer James Thompson, this marriage is the perfect platform to explore the possibilities of fashion accessories, namely rings and awesome pendants. The unlikely twist comes in the form of titanium as the metallic base. Hand crafted and a far cry from the Haoshi X Rings that Long Tran reviewed, tell me which ones are more your style? The Black Badger or the Haoshi X?

Cut Throat Or Wrist

Cut Throat Or Wrist

Rarely do we cover jewelry on YD and rarely does a design studio like Art Lebedev come up with some. Presenting here is the Punctirus Bracelet or Necklace, which according to the designers can “never go unnoticed.” I daresay I agree, not for the clever styling but for the fact that it goes well around the neck and the wrist. Anything multi-functional these days is a bonus, especially in “expensive” category! But I must add, as a choker the Punctirus gives a vamp-ish look! I love it!

Haoshi X Rings Review

Haoshi X Rings Review

I’m a sucker for unique things and the Haoshi X Rings more than satisfy my wanton needs. I love the Animal Series of rings made of resin set in sterling silver. They’re eye catching, high quality, beautifully designed and unisex. My only regret is not knowing about them sooner to include in our DO WANT! Gift Guide but who needs a holiday to shop! At $75 a ring with 10 animals to choose from – I say go treat yourself and buy one!

Stix n Stone May Break My Bones

Stix n Stone May Break My Bones

Ah, no one is breaking anything here, I simply wanted to say this aloud that’s it. But here’s a reason why you’ll love this 2-version jewelry called Stix & Stones; it has discreet magnets in place so that you can play with the design and create your own pendant. A different one every day! The Basic Necklace includes four magnetic spheres of silver and black nickel. The Full Necklace cord comes with six brushed stainless steel stix of assorted lengths, and six magnetic spheres of silver and black nickel. Take your pick!

Crystal To Open Doors

Crystal To Open Doors

The Open-Me is a fancy crystal ring that doubles up as a security agent. Besides looking like a hip piece of jewelry, the geometric cut of the crystal is the key to opening your doors. A 3-D scanner embedded in the door lock scans the facets of crystal, and pops open only after authenticating the cut. Only probs is that in a fit of rage, if you ever smash that crystal, you’d be locked out forever!

Everyday Socket Rings

Everyday Socket Rings

Welcome back for this day’s installment of the Everyday. Every single day you (or at least I) use a plug, or multiple plugs to activate the objects we use that require the power. The power of electricity. But how can the power of LOVE be attained? With a plug. In what’s more than just a simple gesture here, Anna Yu of Yu Yu Design presents the Plug and Socket Duo Ring – one male, one female.

Recycling Your Way to Total Beauty

Recycling Your Way to Total Beauty

One person’s recycling is another person’s garage sale. One person’s trash is another person’s jewelry construction. Take a peek at this collection of recycled jewelry by Indregru. Several different constructs for several different purposes, and oh my goodness, a photo shoot with the ladies of the recycling plant!

Crucify My Love

Crucify My Love

For quite a while I used to believe that infidelity is a state of mind. This was till I realized that porn and men are like inseparable and therefore every man would be a fantasizing infidel! Better than putting a leash on your partner and curbing natural instincts, is the set of TooRings that “Fix Your Love”. The set consists of 4 rings that represent practical advice of tightening your relationship, not screwing it up, smoothing the rough patches and building bridges.

King of the Paper Ring

King of the Paper Ring

How pretty a princess you will be! Or prince! Or both! A set of rings, all made of basically what you’d call “regular” paper, each one cut out (by you), rolled or folded, and worn monthly (or daily, depending on how rough you are.) Each flower ring corresponds with a month out of the year. There are two sets: one birthday set, and one “yearly” set. Fancy!
