My new Gisella ring
So,when a former Criminal Psychologist decided to go all bling and opened a successful online store called “luxuria jewllery”(which has some really eye catching contemporary pieces) sent me an amazing ring I thought I’d tell you a bit about it.
It arrived in the post I was sooo excited, I carefully unpacked the outside packaging which revealed a post card with a lovely hand written note, the ring itself was in a box within a gift bag with ribbon tied in bows on either side of the handle it was packaged with such love and care, as soon as I set eyes on it I feel in love with it.The fit was perfect and the ring itself was gorgeous with a Leopard print design set in a beautiful contemporary setting.
I’m defiantly a secret historian and wanted to find out about the origin of the ring. It was designed by well-known Spanish jewellery designer Belén Bajos. who only uses natural stones, she then transforms them into stunning pieces of contemporary statement jewellery. The craftsmanship and finish is just stunning on a sculptural gold and silver support with the designer’s name beautifully engraved.
