I recently purchased a few pieces of jewelry through Ebay. They took a little while to be delivered because they had come from Asia but I finally got them so I will share them with you!
The first one that I got was a 3 piece ring set. They are all black and I really like them because they actually fit 3 of my fingers so I can wear them at the same time if I want to or I can wear them as individual pieces.
The next item I got was a little disappointing. I found it to be disappointing because it was described as a bracelet but it is actually a necklace that is layered a few times to be worn as a bracelet. I also didn’t realize that it has a swastika on it. Now in the Asian culture it is not used as the same symbol that has become known to represent Nazi Germany. It actually represents luck in the Hindu and Buddhist religions. The issue I have with this is that most people I know are unaware of it’s true symbolism and would be looking at me sideways if I wore it, even if I explained it’s origins.
One of my favorite items was this crown ring. My mother tells me that is looks like a claddagh ring but I’m not so sure I agree. Either way I really like it but I wish I had ordered one size bigger so that I can wear it on my middle finger. For now it will have to be worn on my ring finger.
Next up is a ring with two loops that is meant to be worn on one finger. In the middle of the 2 rings is a Hamsa with an evil eye in the middle. The Hamsa, or the hand is a Talisman. A Talisman is something that turns away harm. In this case, the Hamsa turns away the evil eye. It is used in many religions. In my Italian culture, the equivalent would be to wear a horn that is usually made out of gold or red coral.
The final thing I purchased was this ring that is a replica of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s engagement ring that was formally Princess Diana’s engagement ring. I absolutely adored Princess Diana and have found the same admiration for Catherine. In the right picture I kept my normal ring on to show the true size. I have no idea if this replica ring is the same size as Catherine’s though. It seems to be rather large so I will probably only wear this as s statement piece.
What do you think about these new jewelry additions? Let me know in the comments!
