Designer Spotlight: Verameat Makes Jewelry For The Faint And Not-So-Faint Of Heart

I live in New York City’s East Village and one of my favorite local shops to stumble into while out walking my dog on a weekend afternoon is Verameat.

Etsy Spotlight: Stackable Initial Rings

I thought I would eventually get tired of the initial jewelry trend, but it’s been going strong for, what, 20 years now? And I’m still totally into it. The feminine script on these handmade 14kt gold rings is so pretty, and they look even better stacked. At $50 a piece, they’re not cheap, but could…

Someone Is The Lucky New Owner Of The Pink Star Diamond (And It’s Not Us)

I’ll never forget when Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got engaged — that gorgeous ring slayed me. When their relationship came to an end, I mourned it, if only for the fact that she wouldn’t be wearing that beautiful 6.1-carat pink diamond anymore. I vowed that one day, when I was a grown-up, I too…

Oh, Just Some Sloth Rings For Your Jewelry Box

The Frisky is a house divided on sloths. Some of us think sloths are gross, not cute. Some of us think there is nothing cuter than a sloth in the bath or wearing a baby onesie. But I think we can all agree nothing says “stylish” like made-to-order clay sloth rings from Etsy. Collect them…

Brad Goreski Wrapped Around Your Little Finger

Okay, so ex-“Rachel Zoe Project” fashion fiend Brad Goreski might be the whiniest man on television. But his glasses are pretty sweet. And because Brad is Kate Spade’s newest brand stylist, his signature glasses are now memorialized in earrings, a bangle, a necklace, and this adorable ring. Take that, Rachel Zoe!

Etsy Spotlight: Stunning Space Jewelry

I recently bought myself a Rosette Nebula necklace from an Etsy artist, because my middle name is rose and I love space photography. It’s even more beautiful in person, and I’ve been getting so many compliments on it I thought, “Damn, everyone should have a cool piece of space jewelry!” Want to get in on the interstellar…

I’ve been searching for a star ring for awhile now, and this lovely specimen might be The One. It’s not too big, not too small, has a nice amount of sparkle without being gaudy, and it’s less than 30 bucks. Yep, I think this ring is about to land a starring role … on my…

This Cassette Tape Ring Is Music To My Ears

At the risk of sounding like a grumpy old man, I miss cassette tapes. I miss their fuzzy sound quality. I miss the weight of them in my hand. I miss organizing them alphabetically in my bottom dresser drawer. I miss waiting by the radio like a lion ready to pounce on the “record” butto…

10 Alternative Engagement Rings For The Unconventional Bride

Engagement rings are so boring. They’re pretty, sure, and sparkly too, and exorbitantly expensive, and every girl dreams of one from Tiffany, and it has three diamonds in it, and this is the shape of the diamond, and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Don’t you want this thing you have to wear o…

Weekend Project: Fabric Flower Rings

I get easily intimidated by Martha Stewart’s craft projects, because Martha is a crafting goddess and I definitely fall into the “crafting mortal” category. That being said, these fabric flower rings look genuinely easy to make (as long as you’re confident with a hot glue gun), and I love the result: so dainty and pretty.

Wendy Brandes’ Jewelry Reminds Us Of “Game Of Thrones”

We’re obsessed with “Game Of Thrones.” Obsessed! I just finished watching all of seasons one and two in, like, two weeks. And Amelia’s now reading the books. I want to wear their weird medieval gowns, and have handmaidens to do my hair, and oh! The jewelry? So that’s why we’re particularly smitten with jewelry designer…

It’s Raining Rings, Hallelujah!

I don’t use an umbrella to shield me from the rain (it’s a Portland thing), but I am definitely not averse to using an umbrella to organize my rings. Especially a cute little silver umbrella like this. Adorable and practical? Be still, my soggy heart! [$12, Modcloth]…

These Vagina Rings Look Like Large Gelatinous Slugs

Indie rock darling Grimes is a busy girl. Aside from making her own brand of high-pitched vocal-tinged pop music, she’s also designed her own line of um, very special jewelry. The rings come out of collaboration between Grimes (nee Claire Boucher) and Montreal-based jewelry designer Morgan Black. She calls ‘em pussy rings, but the finger jewelry resemble…
