This weekend was pretty amazing… my boyfriend’s best friend got married and we were both a part of the wedding party and it was such an honor to be. It was such a beautiful wedding and a tearful event… so much love and surrounded by so many friends and family! Then that night, as we were celebrating, I got a call from my best friend telling me she just got engaged!!!!!!!!! Weddings, engagements, etc. all involve rings, the symbol of eternity and love. and well I might not be quite at that stage in my life, I have always worn a ring as an accessory.
When I visited Ireland while studying abroad, I bought a Celtic ring that has not left my right hand since I bought it. I just love it and it the perfect ring to always wear. Well, lately I have been loving seeing different ways to accessorize with rings and wanted to add another ring that I could always keep on and go with everything! I was so happy to hear from Modern Design, a custom, unique jewelry store in LA’s jewelry district. They sent me one of their tungsten rings, and I AM IN LOVE with the thin, delicate band of this style and how well it goes with EVERYTHING. I ordered a size that would fit on my thumb because I recently saw my friend Zoe wearing a thick gun metal ring on her thumb and it looked amazing.
This really is the perfect ring to add to my hand for every day wear! It has held up so well under all conditions and I keep it on to shower, etc. If you are looking for a sturdy, stylish ring, definitely check out their collection!

I am a big fan of thumb rings – and yours is super cute! Also I loveeeee the outfit in that second picture – where did you get that top and sweater and necklaces?!
RachelJuly 29, 2013 at 9:06 AM
Drats, you caught me being lazy LOL. I did this post late last night so sorry for the lack of OOTD details! The top is actually a swimsuit cover up from Target and the sweater is old from Anthro! The necklace is from Chloe & Isabel. I am going to update my post with the links or I can email you a link to the necklace and cover up if you want?!

Looks great! I also really love the pattern of this top! Yellow is my favorite summer color! xx

I like that kimono. Great day.
AmyJuly 29, 2013 at 3:01 PM
Sounds like you had a lovely weekend!! Love this simple thumb ring.
ashleighJuly 29, 2013 at 3:12 PM
I like it! I’ve always been a ring person myself.
AJJuly 29, 2013 at 3:48 PM
LOVE LOVE the dark ring. Its edgy and fun…so Rachel! I might need to snag one myself!
CammilaJuly 29, 2013 at 4:44 PM
Woah, I dig your watch! And the whole look is fab — yellow is so underrated. 🙂
JenJuly 29, 2013 at 5:36 PM
I wish I was more into rings because they look so pretty! I’ve been seeing so many adorable heart rings and thin gold rings but the only rings I wear are my engagement and wedding rings. Maybe I should just take the plunge!

I think you should! Dainty rings are the best 🙂
RachelJuly 29, 2013 at 7:18 PM
Congrats to all your friends! I wear my Irish Claddagh ring 24/7, so I can understand your obsession with your ring 🙂
RachelJuly 30, 2013 at 12:22 PM
Thanks— it was such an exciting weekend —- and my sister’s bachelorette party this this weekend so everything is coming at once! And yes… Definitely obsessed 🙂 I freak out if I take it off even if it is just two seconds to clean it (my celtic ring has enough holes in it to get some soap residue even though I might only take it off once a month).

super pretty! i had a reaction to a ring and haven’t worn one since. maybe i should start back.
RachelJuly 30, 2013 at 12:21 PM
Oh no, sorry to hear that! Hopefully you can try one again some day because they are so cute!

rachel it sounds like you had an AWESOME weekend!! so pretty!!
MeredithJuly 29, 2013 at 9:35 PM
I’m loving all of these photos Rachel. That ring is so perfect to wear every single day. Love that it’s dainty, and it still makes a statement.
RachelJuly 30, 2013 at 12:20 PM
Yes, exactly! That’s why I love it too! And I love rings but sometimes they get in the way. This one is perfect because it is just there I don’t have to take it off to wash my hands or have it clunk on anything!
MegganJuly 30, 2013 at 11:24 AM
Super cute! Love dainty rings!
RachelJuly 30, 2013 at 12:19 PM
Me too! 🙂 Thanks Meggan!
HillaryJuly 30, 2013 at 11:53 AM
Just found your blog. Love that anthro sweater!
RachelJuly 30, 2013 at 11:54 AM
Thank you for stopping by! And thanks! I wish it was still available because everyone loves it and of course I bought it on super sale when there weren’t very many left 🙁
