Jul 29, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

There is something that we really love about ethically-derived, ecologically-friendly jewelry. Maybe it’s that there are limited resources or that it’s so much easier to buy a conflict-free diamond that not doing so makes us feel like bad people—our only issue is the selection can be sort of—limited.

We all love something sparkly on our fingers. Some adore small and dainty chains while others want to go big or go home—personally, we prefer the latter. A thin ring or small pendant is great for every day wear, but when we need to dazzle we want to enter with a bang

Save the planet: a phrase so incredibly common that the words have been nearly bastardized into simply being the motto of hippies and Earth Month every year.

Wearable Tech Brand Ringly Is Connecting us to Our Phones Via Fashionable Jewelry

Jun 11, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Usually when we hang out with friends, attend parties or spend time with our loved ones we don’t want to be glued to our phones (we do, of course, but we don’t want to look like it).

May 15, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

One of our favorite things about fine jewelry—aside from the glitz and sparkle, of course—is to see the sheer amount of creativity that designers can put into such a little thing.
