show me your stack : Stephanie Lee | unruly things

this week’s stack is a BEAUTY from jewelry designer Stephanie Lee of Stephanie Karen Jewels, or SKJ. Stephanie is a new to me designer and I’m so happy that she submitted her stack. I love her collection so so much! her rings are super unique. I mean, that double spiked Eva Rome ring. right?! so so good. here’s what Stephanie has to say about her stack…

Currently, the rings seen in the pictures have been my go to pieces for creating new and favorite stacks. I love that I am able to use the same pieces to create multiple different stacks, from modern and sleek to bold and edgy, depending on my mood or outfit. I wanted to create pieces that had edge, warmth, and vivaciousness. The mixture of textures, geometric shapes, materials, and stones found in my collection allows for an infinite number of combinations. It’s a liberating feeling to be able to compliment your personality and style with the perfect ring or rings. These stacks create an edgier look, but with the same rings only in a different combination a softer and effortless look can be created. The design philosophy behind my collection is to create versatility for the wearer without requiring them to sacrifice their originality. 

thank you so much Stephanie!

show me your stack : Sarah Swell | unruly things

hi friends! it’s been far too long since I’ve shared a stack with you. it’s a new year and a perfect time for new stacks. first up is this gorgeous stack from jewelry designer Sarah Swell. she’s got a great combo of rings and here’s what she has to say about them.

I almost always wear a pretty full stack of rings. Even though I work heavily with my hands and have a terrible case of “jeweler nails,” I just feel naked without them. I love to mix metals and pretty rings with tough rings for an interesting collection.

From left of photo to right:
1. Flotsam & Jetsam ring with diamond from my collection.
2. 18k gold serpent ring and 18k tidal diamond channel-set band from my bridal collection.
3. Lauren Wolf triple pyramid ring in silver.
4. 18k color change sapphire and diamond ring.  This was a parting gift from the first jeweler I ever worked for.  I’ve been wearing it for 10 years.
5. A grouping of my rings with a Satomi Kawakita ring my husband got me for our anniversary.
6. My wedding set.  I created the engagement ring which is inspired by art deco egytian revival style and showcases my grandmother’s diamond in a bezel surrounded by pyramids and snake heads.  The band is a snake as well by Nora Kogan.

show me your stack : Teresa Allaire | unruly things

it’s been awhile, right? I’ve missed sharing stack photos. today’s lovely stack comes from a long time reader of Unruly Things, Teresa Allaire. it’s fun to hear from readers for this series, don’t you think? here’s what Teresa has to say about her stack…

The gold, rose gold and silver knuckle rings on my pinkie and middle fingers are from Hilla Lande from HL Collection in Tel Aviv. I love how versatile they are, they match everything I wear and compliment each other perfectly.

The black onyx ring is from a tiny native trading post near Lake Quinalt on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, it changes color in the sun.

The gold filigree V shaped ring on my index finger was my mothers, a present sent from my great uncle in Italy on the day she got married.

The three wavy rose gold knuckle rings on my index finger (and one on my middle) are from a Christmas market in Devon, England.

My thumb ring is a hammered, hand stamped silver band from Cinnamon Sticks. It says ‘when words fail, music speaks) and it was a gift from a dear friend when I started getting involved in the music industry.

The turquoise ring on my index finger of the other hand is from an indian market in New Mexico. I had the perfect turquoise ring in my mind for years and after a full day of looking for it during my first trip to the southwest, I found this one in a tiny stall presided over by the biggest native man I’d ever seen. He gave me 30% off because I was so happy to find it and shrieked when I saw it. It’s a very green-aqua turquoise, which comes from a very specific part of New Mexico and this particular deposit is only mined by one tribe.

The thin gold band on my middle finger is part of a set of 3 delicate gold hammered bands from Donna at Blue Crab Bay that my boyfriend bought me our first Christmas together. The other two are on my ring finger next door.

And finally, on my ring finger is my grandmother’s and great grandmother’s wedding bands, sandwiching the aforementioned thin bands from Blue Crab Bay. I recently discovered a small inscription on the inside of my great grandmother’s band, the tiniest print engraving that says ‘Forget Me Not’.

beautiful, right? I just love that onyx ring. thanks Teresa!!
