Up until about a year ago, I would constantly going through cycles in my jewellery. I’d buy everything I owned in bulk for about £15 (this is usually very easily to do in high street stores – for example you can probably buy a set of 5 rings for £10 at a store somewhere), and stack these up until they completely lost their colour in about two weeks. This was also the case with any necklaces I’d buy from high street stores. I eventually got so tired of having all my accessories looking like copper after such a short space of time that I realised it made much more sense to invest a bit more money into pieces that would actually last. This ring I was recently sent from Gemporia can now be added to that little collection of good quality, classic pieces…
I hadn’t heard much about Gemporia before they contacted me, but I’m very happy to share this pretty impressive jewellery company with you! First all of, what I love about Gemporia is the huge price range in what they offer. You can literally get something as cheap as £14, to as expensive as a £18,000 engagement ring. Clearly, there’s something for everyone.
I picked out the 1.23ct Mawi Kunzite Sterling Silver Ring, which is unfortunately sold out, but was on sale at the time from around £50 down to £30. I was on the lookout for a ring – if I get myself a good quality ring I tend to wear it 24 hours a day, even in a shower, and I was in the mood for a new one to live on my finger. A few others I considered were the Madagascan Blue Sapphie & White Topaz Sterling Silver Ring, 18cts and the 1.02ct Ethiopian Opal Sterling Silver Ring. It took me ages to decide on one, and I even had to get my boyfriend involved to help me make my decision.
When you select a ring, you can download Gemporia’s Ring Sizer App to help you select the right size, which is also I something I think is truly innovative. The range of their ring sizes are a lot broader than the usual ‘small, medium, large‘ you find in high street stores. This means it definitely better caters to all of our needs.
Overall, I had a very pleasant experience familiarizing myself with Gemporia, their website and how they work. Not to mention I got a really beautiful ring out of it too! I’ll definitely be recommending them to any friends looking to buy new jewellery.
On a side note: sorry for the lack of posts this week! One of my friends was campaigning to be the next LSE general secretary and I campaigned and supported so hard I felt like I was running myself. She won (woo!) making her the first black LSE gen sec. It was such an amazing moment and a great experience to be part of. Obama type things.
Investing in a good piece can be life-changing! Gorgeous, timeless, and classy!
I agree ahah, that done wasting my money on pieces that don’t last!
Wow, that ring is beautiful! I’ve never really been one for rings. My mum used to buy me them when I was a lot younger, and I always lost them. Yours is lovely though! It’s great that they do the sizing online as well. I’d definitely need that!
Glad you like it – the sizing is one of my favourite additions for this brandt
