I’ve talked before about how I felt the need to makeover my wardrobe after becoming a mother and moving to the desert, but one thing I hadn’t really ever figured out is jewelry. “My jewelry personality” so to speak. Pre-kiddo I used to love to wear big statement pieces, but honestly I haven’t worn much besides my wedding band these past few years. The few things I have purchased in this time I need really reach for.
So when Jewel Street reached out to me and offered me a piece of jewelry of my choosing, I was both excited and also confused. This would be my first piece of fine jewelry that wasn’t either inherited or my engagement/wedding ring. This would be a piece of my own to pass on to Prairie someday! I love the idea of an heirloom piece, but what heirloom piece style am I?? Big and bold? Timeless and chic? Modern? Simple? Boho?? Ahh, so many decisions to make!
After countless hours virtually window shopping, (they have A LOT of AMAZING indie designers to explore) I discovered the lovely work of Uma K. Which is funny, because they feature designers from all over the world- but somehow I found and fell in love with the work of a free-spirited California girl! I guess I officially love the Cali-cool style, what can I say? Just like the clothing I gravitate too, my jewelry should be simple but sumptuous- it all seems so obvious to me now.
Anyhow, I chose this 14 karat gold infinity ring. Uma K’s pieces have an air of mysticism about them, which is very Joshua Tree to me and just feels right for this chapter of my life. I truly love the symbology behind the infinity ring that I chose. I love how simple it is, yet how special. Another really cool thing about Uma K is that she makes some of her pieces in Brass too, so here’s a more affordable version of the same shape.
