Apparently, women love shoes. Somehow it's been ingrained in our collective psyche that woman=shoe crazy. I blame Sex and the City. I like shoes and all, but I'm not what you'd call shoe crazy. Instead, my adoration is for other accessories, mainly jewelry and bags. I don't even need a new bag and I browse page after page of handbags on shopping websites. I love them to a point where I may have a disorder. Jewelry is my other weakness, mainly rings. I always wear at least two rings, sometimes more. I'm not sure how I got started on my ring obsession, but I think it's because I was self conscious of how my hands look, and I wanted to provide a visual distraction from my child hands. I also talk with my hands a lot (A LOT. When I tell a story I look like a baby bird manically trying to fly), and for some reason I think it looks cool to wear huge rings and wave your hands in the air. I used to have a very extensive collection of rings. I was always buying more at H&M and Forever 21. When I moved, I went through everything I owned and tried to pare down, and I realized my collection of cheap jewelry was just that: Cheap. I decided to ditch the $3 rings and stick to the nicer rings in life. Anyway, the rings I wore on a regular basis were the nicer, sterling silver ones, so I wasn't losing a lot by ditching my cheapo jewels. I love big rings - the bigger the better - but the ring I always come back to is actually super thin and understated. It's the ring I wear when I don't feel like wearing jewelry, if that makes any sense. It's sleek and modern and perfect for every occasion. It's the Frank Gehry Torque Micro Ring from Tiffany.

I got this ring for my 21st birthday when I was celebrating with my family in Las Vegas. Actually, all of my Tiffany purchases have been in Las Vegas. It's kind of a tradition. I pick out what I want and wait until I can afford to splurge on a necklace or earrings and treat myself the next time I'm in Vegas (I'm always planning my next trip to Vegas. It's been my family's go-to vacation spot since I was four). While this ring was a gift, every other piece I have from Tiffany's was the result of my see, save, splurge philosophy. I highly recommend buying yourself nice things. Whether it's a good meal, a nice piece of jewelry, or a dream vacation. I promise it will greatly improve your quality of life. Don't wait for someone else to treat you to the things you want. Treat YO SELF.

I love my Torque Micro ring because it's not just a simple band. The square shape adds a little interest, without being over the top. (You can get this ring with a row of diamonds on it, which is an over the top-ish touch I'm totally okay with.) Sometimes I even put this ring on a chain and wear it as a necklace. It's just as chic, and it's economical! A ring and a necklace in one!

My point is, I have a menagerie of rings. Some stay, some go, but my Torque Micro ring will be a regular accessory of mine forever.
