Nifty-Gorgeous Puzzle Ring from NellyVanSee!

This Puzzle Ring from NellyVanSee has to be one of the coolest, prettiest pieces of jewelery I’ve ever come across.  I find them fascinating to look at, and I’d love to get my hands on one to see if I could figure out the puzzle!

Quote:

Legend has it that this style of ring originated in Turkey first, so as to ensure the loyalty of a man’s wife. If she returned with no ring or a puzzled ring then that would prove she was disloyal.

If taken off it separates into to many confusing rings that prove difficult to return to their proper form, and proves to the other that the ring has been removed.

Times have changed and now the ring is not only used as a wedding band but also as a luxurious and beautiful conversation piece.

MATERIAL:
✓The ring is made of solid gold all the way through.
✓It is NOT plated and its NOT hollow.
✓These rings are handmade at our workshop in downtown Montreal, with great care and great accuracy, each of them is hand polished for that extra shine.
✓Handmade from scratch, not from ready made wire.

Zowie!

Beautiful Reclaimed & Vintage Jewelery from BuenoStyle!

I am just loving all the beautiful pieces over at BuenoStyle!  Especially the Patina Bees and Flower Earrings!  Such fresh colours for Spring!

  1. Patina Bees and Flower Earrings:  These lovely vintage bee charms have been hand painted with a green patina faux finish, making them look like they’ve been left out in the secret garden for years. Or something.   I’ve paired them with vintage round “ivory” beads which have a floral decal on them. Bees & flowers. Get it?  Fantastic, fancy and fun, these earrings are sure to be eye catching, maybe even a conversation starter.  Hung on new, high quality gold filled ear wires. Perfect for those with with sensitive ears. Just under 2.5″ long.
  2. Vintage Canadian Penny Necklace:  As featured in the Vancouver Sun newspaper recently during the Olympics!  An authentic vintage Canadian penny coin! I found a selection of these in an antique coin dealership. I’ve scrubbed them clean, then hand drilled them to create each unique pendant necklace.   Canadian penny coins used to be much larger – about the size of a “loonie” coin nowadays (exactly 25.4 mm).  These specific coins were minted from 1911 – 1920 and feature a wreath and date design on one side, and a bust of King George V on the reverse.  This coin is from 1917. If you have a specific year you prefer, let me know and I can see if I have it. But I only have these large coins in years from 1898 to about 1920.  I’ve added a fancy brass bail and a vintage, hand aged maple leaf charm. The chain is new, nickel free and hand aged to match the lovely patina of the vintage coin. It’s a very long, pendant style necklace… aprox 34″ long. Let me know if you prefer a shorter length.
  3. Mixed Metal Filigree Earrings:  These lovely statement earrings feature both vintage gold-plated and vintage silver-plated filigrees mixed together. I’ve nicknamed them “fanfare”  Mixed metal is a really hot look – you don’t have to choose between “gold” tones or “silver” tones anymore – mix it up!  These earrings feature an abundance of vintage “turned paddle” filigrees. The paddles are curved, giving these earrings depth and distinction.  The vintage filigrees come from a third generation owned vintage bead warehouse that ordered these findings from American factories. These factories are no longer in business and the filigrees could be as old as the 1920′s, but I don’t know for sure.   They come on high quality gold-filled ear wires, perfect for those ladies with sensitive ears. Total length is about 2.25″ long and width at the bottom is about 1.25″ wide.  You will get a brand new pair – not the ones I am wearing in the photo (those babies are MINE!)  You will receive a new, never been worn pair, so don’t be icked out by the photo of me wearing my pair.
