Lord of the Ring

This is the cover of my latest David Yurman catalog. I'm sure it's Father's Day driven & we don't have kids, but seriously... I'm loving these rings.

I'm a bit picky with men's jewelry. To me, it's easy to get a bit overboard and descend into tacky. I don't prefer necklaces unless they are puka shells and we are on vacation. When we return, those pukas are retiring.

Cufflinks & watches are great, but that's another post. They do center around a man's hands, which I love. A ring is great if it doesn't overwhelm the hand. I don't like prissy and prim. I like masculine and confident.

My husband is Basque & has the trademark big thick fingers. I think one of these rings might work. I tend toward the last, but you never know until you try it on in person, right?

I didn't know that about the Basques! You learn something new every day.

Anyways, those rings are great. I wonder if they could be sized down. My fingers are super skinny - I wear a 4 1/2 on the left and 4 3/4 - 5 on the right.

What do you think of David Yurman pieces? I'm interested.

Generally I'm not into men's jewelry, but I've recently been asked to look at rings. I put away my crucifix necklace years ago. And, of course, I love my Rolexes.

Applev - I wear 4 1/4 on my ring finger. Horry, these rings would swallow us. He makes tons of gorgeous rings for women! But if I were to pick one for myself, I want the last!

Lbt - I love david yurman jewelry. Tiffany is pretty, but so feminine. DY is tougher. I like the mix of gold & silver & chunky gemstones. My favorite piece is a citrine cocktail ring. Please look at their men's jewelry! Lord, I love a rolex. I have a rather delicate cartier, but want a big heavy rolex to wear like a bracelet on my wrist. Any recs?
