Steal vs. Splurge: Gold Diamond X Ring Jewelry

Lately, I’ve been fascinated by the newly iconic X Ring. Though it has nothing to do with X-Men or The X-Files, its fabulousness is totally out of this world. Whether you’re on your way to a black tie event or getting crazy at a music festival, the X Ring’s sleek and modern design is sure to be the perfect addition to your outfit.

While the price differences between fine jewelry and costume jewelry tend to be drastic, you can rock a shimmering X Ring no matter what your budget may be.

1884 Collection: When in Rome


When in Rome, do as the Romans do.  Thousands of years ago, the Roman Empire stood tall with glory and grandeur, much like modern-day New York City.  Centuries later, its ruins still remain projecting the same admiration among visitors that they did in their prime.  The 1884 Collection designed by Alberto Petochi is an impressive line of fine jewelry that combines the beauty of ancient Roman coins in contemporary jewelry designs many are even made with authentic Roman coins from the designer’s personal collection.  All pieces are made in Italy from the finest materials guaranteed to make any socialite feel like an empress.  Everyone who buys a piece from the collection can register it on the 1884 website along with a personal wish.  Just as in a traditional trip to Rome, a coin will be thrown into the Trevi Fountain in honor of each wish making them excellent Valentine’s Day gifts.  Prices start at $160, but go well into the thousands.

There are three coins found among the 1884 Collection bearing the faces of three different Roman emperors:

Small Ottaviano or Agustus Coin: The nephew of Julius Caesar as well as the founder of the Roman Empire. The month of August was named after him.

Medium Antoninus Pius Coin: Was a man of integrity and culture. He was married to a beautiful woman who committed her life to caring for the poor.

Large Alexander the Great Coin: Conquered nearly the entire civilized world of his day.
