I have been in this business since I was 16. Whenever I see my mom design a huge ass ring for her clients, I secretly thought, YUCK. I always wondered why anyone would wear such a huge ring.
I suppose I see the evolution of how women wear their jewellery from their teens up to their late 70's. I for one realized how much I have changed in taste when it comes to jewelry.
I used to love those skinny dangling earrings and I would be caught dead wearing a stud because I thought it looked too mature for me. I also didn't like yellow gold before. I always wore white gold or silver.
BUT NOW....geez....I don't even see myself wearing anything simple and thin and small. It's BIG all the way baby!
For the past few months, I realized that all the rings that I have designed are huge that some of my clients are having a bit of difficulty wearing it. As much as I try to explain that it is really how rings are to be worn now, it still needs a lot more convincing to some of my clients on how to go CHUNKY on their fingers.
Here's how it looks like on mine.
