I’ve always been a huge fan of cheap jewelry. I buy adorable rings that I love for 5 bucks and wear them a few times and then they tarnish and turn my fingers green and/or I take them off to shower and I lose em.
Not a great long term plan.
A few years ago my Mama gave me a really simple gold band (that many of you guys have asked about over the years) it was real gold and I haven’t taken it off since. It was then that I realized that for me to actually keep and wear a ring, it has to be one I can’t take off.
So I figured it had to be real gold which meant I didn’t get rings for a long time, cause $$$$$.
Until I found the ultimate compromise!
Now stop me if everyone else is well aware of this and I’m just waaaaaay late to the party but…
GOLD FILLED. DO you know about this stuff? It’s got all the benefits of gold (no rubbing off, no turning green, no need to remove) for a far less heart crushing price.
I’ve been wearing this little handmade beauty I found at an etsy store (for $29) non-stop for the last three months and it’s in perfection condition!
So for any of you who are like me and are looking for a more permanent ring situation (speaking of temporary rings, has anyone had any luck keeping those darn midi-rings on their fingers? cause I love them but they last me like 45 minutes before they come up missing…?anyway) I gathered some of my favorite rings from various etsy stores to inspire your new found gold filling love:)
Hope you had a good weekend!
