A few years back I met Jane Pope Cooper, the Southern Carolina jewelry designer (behind Jane Pope Jewelry), while grabbing a drink with girlfriends at the Soho House in New York. I had an instant girl crush on the gorgeous and effortlessly cool blonde mom and was majorly obsessed with her jewels–especially the sweet engraved rings she wore bearing her children’s names. When she told me they were her own designs I was of course swooning even more. After a couple of cocktails, she followed up with the sweetest note and was beyond kind enough to send me the Five Point Ring I had gone gaga over. Her jewels are now part of my everyday stack and I feel naked without them on.
So even before Rex was born I knew exactly what I would be treating myself to (a push present for myself if you will!). With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I thought I’d share the sweetest gift I’ve given myself with the thought that some of you might want to nudge your guy right this way. If a name engraved ring isn’t what you’re looking for, I’ve long been lusting over this black diamond ring, and a pinky ring for myself as well. (Just send your guy this post and thank me later.)
