All Stacked Up


My wedding bands was originally made as a stacked set of four: two rings etched in yellow gold and two softly hammered in white gold. We only could afford two at the time, plus four seemed excessive so we only got two (1 etched, 1 hammered). I really love my bands, and I continue to lust after stacked sets of softly hammered gold rings.

Like the above (left) set of seven by Gorjana. I just love the rose coloured gold - so girly! I really, really want this set. Badly.

I've also discovered beautiful, organic looking jewelry by Jacquie Aiche, via Shopbop. I had a really tacky looking snake ring when I was in Grade 7, and it seems snakes are making a strong comeback with designers like Elizabeth and James incorporating the serpent in their jewelry. I love Jacquie Aiche's dainty and feminine interpretation. Aiche's Waif Small Bezel ring, also shown below, would look great stacked or on its own.

If I'm feeling a bit less girly, I might pick up the below two.

Beautiful rings... I love how delicate they are. That amethyst one looks heavy though, but I've never seen a cut-open version on a ring before!

i'm glad your trying something different with your wedding bands. i think that's what i'd want to do once the time comes.
