Ok, so I love rings. No, I REALLY LOVE them. I am obsessed with them. I collect them like crazy. I think they are the most romantic jewelry and I love switching out my rings. I still wear my original wedding ring set, but I also have collected many stand-ins and right hand rings. I can only boast of a couple of fine jewelry pieces, a lot are sterling silver. But I feel like every time I buy a new ring I`m getting engaged all over again because the novelty is there when wearing something new.
My husband laughs at me and jokes that he
s staging an intervention for me, and part of that intervention will be banning me from ebay and etsy (but not the bee!) haha. I really dont know if anyone else out there has this same obsession, but I figured the bee was the best place to find them. I feel better just getting this out there haha.

I also love rings!!! ^.^ I don’t have much of a collection though, especially since many are loose after I lost weight. >.<
Rings are my favourite kind of jewellery because they’re so easy to put on/take off, and my hands are one of my favourite body parts – perhaps my very favourite. 🙂 Also, they don’t really affect me the way other pieces do – earrings often irritate my pierced ears, necklaces feel uncomfortable/gross if I happen to sweat, and bracelets often get in the way because I am on the computer all day and need to type. Rings are beautiful and don’t get the way!

I love rings but I would never wear a stand in for my wedding set. They are about the meaning behind them.

@LilRhodyGem: Haha, thanks. The first step is admitting you have a problem, right? Does this mean I only have 11 more steps to go?

I, too, have a ring obsession! I love all jewlery, but I get a lot of joy looking at, researching, and dreaming about rings in particular. I only have a small collection of rings at the moment; my new wedding ring, my original wedding band, and another diamond band that’s just for fun (that needs to be resized). I probably won’t be getting another ring until I have a child though.

I can relate! I’m obsessed too. I have many rings that I switch around and mix and match day to day as my wedding set. Sometimes my originals, sometimes stand ins, some time original mixed with stand in. So fun! Maybe I could use an intervention too 🙂
