Which would you choose?
No one knows the struggle of having only 10 fingers on which to display beautiful rings than us, which is why we are the biggest fans of combos and stacking around!
We often are asked how to wear rings and decided to finally let you in on our secrets 😉
1) If going big, stick to a metal
Big rings are fantastic and really take an average outfit to the next level, however if metals are mixed, things can get complicated. We are fans of a few sterling silver statement pieces worn together, but this can also be done with brass or gold fill/gold vermeil as well.
P.s. How beautiful are those moonstone and coral rings together?!
2) Use a lot of little ones for a big impact
This is where you can really let your mixing-metal fun side out! Above is an example of pairing sterling silver and gold fill, which avoids being too much due to the daintiness of each piece. Below is an example of the fun you can have with little pieces when you stick to one metal (in this case gold fill). This works because when you aren’t mixing metals you can really explore different textures and designs of the small rings.
Also when playing with small rings let us introduce our best friend: the midi ring. In both pictures our lovely hand models are wearing midi rings (ones that go on the upper knuckle) which we love the look of so much! It not only elongates your fingers, but also helps disperse the rings so you can wear more at once.
3) Make sure your hands are balanced
When putting together any piece of art (and yes, your fingers are art!), it is important to stand back and look at the big picture when done. Is it too much? Not enough? Imbalanced? This is when placing your hands side by side can really help because you want your hands to compliment one another! Above we see that sticking with one metal helps calm the eye as does the “rule” of one big ring and two little rings on each hand. It of course isn’t necessary to copy each style exactly between the two hands, however having two big rings on one hand and one small on the other can feel off balanced. Make sure there is a rhythm to your pieces and you don’t have too many gaps between each ring!
We aren’t ones to play favorites with our stones, but there is just something special about a labradorite piece. We love the different colors that shine through depending on the stone and the way each is hit by the light, so each piece is unique.
From left: $115, $135, $95
Labradorite is known to protective against negative energies as well as bringing clarity to its wearer (as well as compliments from passersby!)
From left: $57, $48
And maybe it’s also just us as Oregonians who love our grey sky, but we find so much beauty in the depth of the stone as it shimmers from grey to green to blue and purple.
For a color that can be monotone, labradorite is anything but.
We have a deal for all of you beautiful ladies out there–
30% off all long sleeved shirts and dresses!

This semi-sheer dress is exactly what we will be grabbing for the hot days ahead! Layered over shorts and a bralette you’ll look sophisticated while staying totally cool.
$45 Now $33!
We love the floral pattern in the unexpected, and summery, combo of green and orange. You don’t need anything except a great straw bag and sandals and you’re out the door!

$33 Now $25!
We know that you ladies are important people who want to look great all year round, and as we have discussed before, dresses are the key to summer success!
Here are two of our favorites in the store right now:
Every woman who has tried this dress on has come out of the dressing room with a huge smile across their faces! It is soooo flattering and comfortable and would be perfect in the summer for weddings, or throw on some flat sandals and you are ready for a backyard barbecue! We love transitional pieces and you can pull this beauty out of your closet for so many occasions we know it will be your new summer go-to.
Clockwise: Headband–$35, Moonstone necklace–$135, Claw necklace–$75, Leaf earrings–$18, Circle earrings–$24, Moonstone earrings–$85
When we imagine accessorizing this dress we want to stay light and true to the gold and white floral details, and these pieces do just the trick.
The headband would be a perfect addition to the fairy-like flow to the dress, as would the airy gold earrings (we also love how their natural shapes play off the floral vibe!) and you can never go wrong with the beautifully neutral moonstone in the earrings and pendant.
If you wanted to add a punch of edge this brass bird claw would be perfect as well and would downplay the femininity of the dress in a fun way.
Covered up in Blue
A question that has plagued humanity since the beginning of the time is how to dress appropriately for professional events when the temperature rises. Though there is nothing wrong with a tank top and skirt, when we want something flirty and a little more pulled together than a maxi-dress, we will be reaching for this number.
It has a high neck that makes it office-appropriate, but still stays fun and interesting with the gauzy fabric draping all around; a dress that gives the appearance of being layered without any added weight–sign us up! Throw on a cardigan and some closed toes heels and you will still outshine any industrial office lighting, or some strappy heels for the more formal affairs this summer while still staying cool.
Clockwise from left: Earrings–$24, Druzy necklace–$48, Abalone necklace–$55, Pyrite necklace–$34, Earrings–$39
When adding details we don’t want too add too much to the already stylized neckline and texture of the dress, however some simple pieces in the blue/purple/silver family would only heighten the beautiful blue coloring.
We love the boldness of the purple druzy (which also has some blue within) and the chunky pyrite, however we have never been ones to say no to an abalone piece! We especially love this one because of the pinks and purples it picks up as it catches the light.
It’s Thursday, which is basically the weekend as far as we are concerned.
What are you all up to? Here is what’s on our to-do list…
The first and third Thursday of the month our Hawthorne neighbor, Artichoke Music, has a Songwriter Roundup where songwriters can put their name into a hat to perform an original piece. Don’t play? No worries. With a $5 price tag it’s an affordable way to hear great music and support our local musicians.
7 pm, $5 artichokemusic.org
We are so excited for the Portland Night Market this Friday night! You can eat awesome food and shop from local artisans; and being in the Industrial District it’s a fun way to start your evening out on the town.
7pm, FREE http://www.pdxnm.com/
This Saturday marks the beginning of the Mt. Tabor neighborhood Art Walk. Art Walks are a fantastic way to explore different neighborhoods of Portland as well as support local artists.
Not that you needed to be reminded, but Portland is a beautiful city. However, being surrounded by nature can be easy to forget sometimes. A great way to take the scenic route is through a tour, and this Sunday there is a great one! Departing from Downtown, the Columbia River Gorge Waterfall tour takes you through some beautiful waterfalls including Multnomah Falls and is definitely not one to be missed.
9 am or 1pm, $69 http://www.wildwoodtours.com/gorge_waterfalls_tour.php
What are you excited to go out and do this weekend?
Also don’t forget that Friday, May 20 is the last day of our earring sale! (15% a pair with the mention of this post).
