Pretty Little Rings

P1130251-2

These rings are soooooo pretty! I saw them in my good friend, Patty Laurel-Filart’s blog and felt the need to share it with you guys. This collection is a collaboration between Patty and jewelry designer Elena Bautista. The duo came up with these stackable rings that are made from up-cycled brass metal plated in yellow-gold and natural, faceted colored stones. I love how they look–it has a vintage feel but still very chic and effortless. I also love that they are stackable, which means you can wear as many as you like, and even mix and match them to complement your outfits. But what really makes these rings special is that it serves a higher purpose. This collection was made with the intention of helping the children of CENEP Foundation.

Here’s an excerpt from Patty’s blog post:

Elena and I both want these stackable rings to be “giving rings”. We would love for these rings to be a simple call to action, to encourage people to pay-it-forward in their own little way. We are so honored to partner with CENEP Foundation, An Education and Nutrition Program for impoverished preschool children in Tondo and Mandaluyong. My family has been supporting them quietly for many years now and it’s always a joy working with this group. I’d like to thank Elena for agreeing to make these “giving rings”, she cost each ring very fairly so we won’t have to make them too expensive (making the prices affordable for our clients—causing YOU to HELP the kids more!). I personally will not be making any profit from the sales 🙂

Not only will these rings bring joy to the kids of CENEP, they will also bring a lot of happiness to the ones who will be wearing them. They’re eye candy for sure but more than just looking pretty, each ring carries a virtue too. We want women to be reminded of the values they hold dear through these little things wrapped around their fingers. Women go through emotional, physical and spiritual struggles each day—so we thought it would be nice to have something to serve as a gentle reminder of the things that really matter. 

Some women also love how the stones represent symbolic months in their lives–birthdays of their children, anniversaries, etc. Whether it’s for the virtues or the occasions, we love that women can attach meaning to these rings. We envision people purchasing this not only for themselves, but for their moms, their sisters, their best friends. Even for men to purchase them for their wives and girlfriends as a token to show their appreciation. 

It’s fashion with a purpose, and we can all help out with this great cause by purchasing these rings for ourselves and for our loved ones. My personal favorite is the peridot gem since that’s my birth stone, but all of these stones send out good energy and help out in its own little way by promoting balance and peace in our lives. Check out what each gem represents.

Yellow Citrine: This represents HAPPINESS, FUN, JOY. It’s for that woman who loves to enjoy life!

Yellow Topaz: This represents PEACE and TRANQUILITY. It’s for the woman who is calm, composed and serene.
Peridot: This represents CLARITY in the middle of all the clutter and chaos of daily life.
Blue Topaz: This represents GOOD COMMUNICATION. This is a perfect reminder for people in relationships, to have the grace to listen to others and to speak lovingly.
Garnet: This represents COURAGE. For the woman who is brave enough to conquer struggles, to face battles head on, who fights for what is right and honorable.
Emerald: This represents PATIENCE and HONESTY. Two beautiful qualities that each woman should strive to possess. I think I need more Emeralds in my life! Hahaha!
Aquamarine: This represents SAFE TRAVELS. This is ideal for jet-setters, wanderlusters, and world-travelers who love going on adventures.
Pink Tourmaline: Awww, this is the LOVE stone! It even represents healing a broken heart 🙂
Amethyst: This represents BALANCE. For women who feel overwhelmed with work, family, and life in general—this encourages us to just focus on the things that matter.
