Ring in the New Year


It’s not too late to ring in the New Year in style. Quite literally.

This year, we resolved to start a new tradition: to literally ring in the New Year. What the hizzy does that mean? It means we’re treating ourselves to a new ring each New Year – a little New Year’s gift to ourselves. Of course, we decided to do this with one of our absolute best friends, which makes it that much more meaningful.

The idea? To be able to look back in several years to see where you were in your life and to reminisce, hopefully fondly, about that time and those memories. Plus, we’re looking forward to buying a pretty, super simple long chain and adding all of the rings to it over the years, charm bracelet-style, natch.

Think times are too tough to start such a fab tradition? Not to fret. Most of our picks are under $200, with several under $50! Which means you can take part — no visit to the gumball machine required.

So treat yourself, or grab your mom, your sis, your BFF or all of your favorite girls and ring in the New Year together. Perhaps you’ll decide to all pick the same ring each year or maybe you’ll each pick your own, or maybe you’ll each pick one for one another. Whatever you decide, we hope you’ll ring in the New Year fabulously.

Kiel Mead Forget Me Knot Ring, $48.75 Such a sweet sentiment and a celebration of remembrance, we love the pure simplicity and the price. *** Presh Gold Elephant Ring, $145 We have a huge soft spot for elephants, plus it reminds us of our trip to Thailand this past year and of an African safari we hope to take sooner rather than later. *** Mesi Jilly Shell Ring, $320 We love the beauty of this shell number, plus it’s a reminder to be a little more exotic and to take more walks on the beach! *** Tiffany Notes Ring, $200 We heart this Tiffany ring because it reminds us of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, New York and all that is charming about being a girl. *** Emma-Jane & Tan 14K Gold Cupcake Ring, $300 Speaking of being a girl, we love cupcakes for their young-at-heart sweetness and love that this is a bit more sophisticated take on that notion.

Rachel Leigh Jewelry Capsule Rings – Set of 7, $50 We love that we can keep one and give the rest to six of our nearest and dearest – a great kick off to a sweet new tradition. ***
Luc Kieffer Barbed Wire Ring, $115
We’re head over heels for this French designer, who we first spotted in a cute West Village boutique in New York a few years back on a trip with one of our best friends. *** Anne Kiel Criss-Cross Band Ring, $128 We’re suckers for anything customizable and love that we can choose a word or name for each band. Perhaps “champagne” and “lollypops”?


Luc Kieffer Chain Ring, $93
Swoon. Another Luc Kieffer lovely. A reminder to be bold and step outside of our own box now and again. ***
Gorjana Star Ring, $35
A nod to the idea to keep dreaming and wishing on a star. Simple, graphic, cool and sweet and a steal at $35. ***
Luc Kieffer Oval Star Ring, $123
A more indulgent take on wishing upon a star, we love the dark starry vibe and can see sporting this lovely cocktail ring at many a soiree (imaginary or otherwise).
