I'm a Harrington - Bryant girl. I've seen this ring in person on my girlfriend and it is simply beautiful. So cool to see something simply, everyday, yet beautiful and sophisticated at the same time.

I love the Harrington and Bryant styles. The rings are so simply beautiful. Casual and everyday and yet sophisticated and elegant too.

I am drawn to the Tilden. It isn't a style I've seen everywhere. I like the two bands connected by the circles enclosing the gem. To me it signifies the union of two people...

I love the Webster with the citrine or Peridot, I cannot decide... They are both such spectacular colors in an amazing simple setting... reminding me of summer!
I'm having my first baby this summer and this ring embodied my thinking... remember simple is better, a fantastic summer is on its way, and not to forget about spoiling myself a little too! :)

The amethyst Webster ring is very sophisticated and unique. I lost my wedding ring years ago and haven't found another ring that I love. I could really see myself wearing that one. I think your prices are very reasonable and if you are interested in selling at our handmade bazaar in June here on the Island, let me know.

My favorite is Walden in Peridot. I'm a green lover and the classic style is elegant and always looks wonderful.

I have fairly large fingers and am always looking for rings that look nice on my hands. I was immediately drawn to the Keene ring. I loved the wrapping detail.

I also liked the look of multiple Stevens bands. Simple, yet beautiful.

I'm partial to the "Jackson" ring. I love how the silver and gold are married by the hammered technique and that it's evocative of both modern and classical periods of design- very Danish chic! It's the kind of look that is equally tasteful at the symphony and in the garden; not a ring that ever needs to be shelved for a special occasion. I just wish it came in a size 5!

On a side note, I'm impressed by the organization of the website! I like the "Organic, Classic, Modern, etc" categories and that the different stone color and matching band options are presented when the user looks at each ring.

Michelle April 8, 2009 at 8:34 PM  

I absoulutly love the webster ring! I The peridot is incredible classic and elegant.

Thoroughly Modern Mamma April 8, 2009 at 8:45 PM  

I love the Kennebunk style with the garnet! It looks like an heirloom. I love jewelry that feels like it has a history. Classic and unique!

Deanna April 8, 2009 at 9:06 PM  

I love the Walden in Blue Topaz because I just think it's so simple and elegant.

Laru April 8, 2009 at 9:23 PM  

Clean lines, a Zen like simplicity, and a delicate green jade color are all qualities of the aventurine Hadley that caught my eye. For me, this ring stood out as a symbol of my new goals: Clarity in the face of change; Simplicity as a mantra; Green, as a noun, as much as I can be. If, rings are symbols strengthened by the bond of commitment, then, I am Hadley.

Love the ring. Beautiful one...

I love the Keene, just love it!

Dina Holland April 9, 2009 at 6:45 AM  

I really love the Keene. The juxtaposition of the stone with the silver wire over it is really great.

Aundrea April 9, 2009 at 7:22 PM  

I dig the boothbay ring! I think it's unique and like nothing I have never seen before. I thought how it partners with the Gardner ring is simple and perfect, totally my style!

Adrianne April 10, 2009 at 7:31 AM
