I love jewelry. Yes, I am a girl, and I love jewelry. The problem is that I am VERY picky. Especially with earrings. I'll pretty much love ANY necklace, bracelet, or ring. But please don't try to buy me earrings. Not to be rude, but I probably won't wear them. I have been hooked on Ronald Pearson's "figure 8" earrings for years. I have them in both 14K and sterling. They are both a classic and a statement. I absolutely love, love, love them.
Probably the main reason I love them so is because what they signify to me. As a Columbia Junior Leaguer, I always admired them. Silver or gold, I never cared. But it wasn't until I finally left my ex-husband that fateful day in May of 2002 (No details, please. We'll just say he loved to imbibe more than the average southern male... much more.), that I finally procured my own "figure 8s". I can remember walking into Carol Saunder's Gallery like a new woman. Celebrating my, and my young sons', freedom, I felt so liberated. I bought both the gold and silver pair. I deserved these earrings. I earned them!
And so seven years later have passed. I am married to my husband - an amazing man. I have a wonderful life. And... I still am in love with my "figure 8s".
