No- its not an engagement ring- although that would be nice. ::Wink Wink::
On my most recent Torrid shopping trip I spotted this black and silver rose ring and I had to have it! Not only was it pretty, but it was a real ring- that actually had a size. Rather than those rings that are “one size” and have that stupid stretchy back to them. I hate those rings! They always pinch my fingers!
It is so hard finding jewelry that fits my big fingers. My ring finger is between a 10 and an ll, which is unheard of for fashionable costume jewelry. I usually find something I like, and it’s almost always not in my size. That seems to be a common theme for us plus size ladies. Jewelry is the worst.
Unless I shop at a specialty retailer like Lane Bryant, Avenue, or Torrid, I won’t find jewelry that is big enough for me to wear. The most common issue besides rings are the bangle bracelets; or just bracelets in general. My wrist is a solid 8″ and unfortunately most of the bracelets I like are either 7 or 7.5″ inches. Ugh.
However- I do also believe in shopping small whenever possible! There is a jewelry company called J Ashley Jewelry who sells Plus Size Bangle bracelets. Not only are they awesome quality and hand crafted, but they are made for a bigger wrist! My favorite design is below! Check out her shop here!
Its that time of year- finally spring is on it’s way! Spring is my favorite time to wear more jewelry- there is something about the warm weather that just makes me happier and want to dress even funkier. Accessorizing my look is one of my favorite parts of getting dressed!
The weather is perfect! Now in the mid 40’s and 50’s its perfect for a kick ass leather jacket! I am so excited to be working on my newest jacket project! Find out more by signing up for my newsletter here!
