I attribute my love of jewelry (all sorts) to Dorothea. While in New Orleans, I stopped into some antique shops and purchased a turquoise ring (December's semi-precious stone is turquoise) and another simpler gold ring, which is probably meant for a man, actually both seem to be meant for a man, but that adds to their charm.
When I wear them, I feel like I'm one of those people who scour antique and flea markets all the time. Or better: that I've had these rings in my family for at least a century - which given my ancestry, is quite possible. XO
