Teal Ring and Aqua Marine

I recently visited some family in the city and on the day I saw my cousin, I noticed that she was wearing the most adorable ring! It was a beautiful and quite large teal stone with a ring of silver around the edges. It must have been love at first sight. When I asked where she got it, she replied that she had purchased it at a swamp meet. I have to admit for a while I was heartbroken, the market is every Friday and I was only visiting for a day. To my surprise, when I saw her next (about a week ago) she pulled out the exact ring; she had looked for it last Friday and purchased it for me. Thanks cuzn!!!

I painted my nails a fresh aqua marine color to match . I will say that it is a bit large for my finger but it definitely doesn't affect my enthusiasm. What a perfect transitional color from winter to spring. It's a bit early to think about spring but it's a good thing to keep in mind. In the right light, the color looks fresh and seems to pop, but for the meantime, while the weather is still Grey, the shade pretty much matches the color of the sky.

I went a little overboard with the pictures, but I think everyone gets the idea :p The great thing about teal is that the color is so easy to pair with other things. I played it safe with a black sweater and belt when I wore the ring today. But the possibilities are endless and I think this ring has a lot of potential. I plan on developing a small collection of rings so that I can where them more often, and so the hunt begins!!!

Thanks for reading :)


  1. Hi, Angela.

    Awesome blog you have here. Love the green layout and the argyle background. :)

    That is very sweet of your cousin to get you a ring just like hers. :) The minty teal color is very pretty. The ring matches your nails perfectly too. If I had a ring as pretty as that, I'd probably stare at it all day. :)

    If it weren't for Youtube, I probably wouldn't have known about Naked 2 either. Thanks for the comment you left on my Naked 2 post. :)

    Take care and enjoy your day. :)

  2. Jannie: yes , you can probably tell that green is my favorite color xD. I am so glad you found out about naked two and were kind enough to share your thoughts. keep up the great work!
