Rings are a subtle accessory compared to, say, necklaces or bracelets . To the wearer, a ring often functions on a personal level as a symbolic memento. They can remind you of a very dear person, like an engagement ring, or of a specific place and time, like a class ring.
Because of their personal nature, rings naturally become tied to specific memories. This makes them excellent for gift giving, especially on special ocassions.
Today I decided to make a list that celebrated nature–my explorations of my hometown of Austin have me marvelling at the natural beauty the city is famous for. Also, there are so many amazing rings for sale on Esty, and I had to narrow it down somehow.
