Thank you for helping me celebrate my fall, trip, SPLAT into silver as 2015 ramps up. Plus, it’s always fun to pull out the Marwari shawls, whether for backdrops or for preparing to head out into the Parade of Life. And right now, anything that resonates with fun gets a big round of clapping from me.
Like this Parade GM ring. A close cousin of the also beautiful Osmose ring, the Parade shows its difference in the rope-like twists of silver that make up its surface. Against the smooth surfaces and planes of my other rings, these texture stands out. I first tried on this ring in Chicago in 2012, but they only had a size to fit my left ring finger, whereas I wanted something larger. I’d tried to try it on in Paris in 2011/12, but they didn’t have a size to fit any finger. So—this winter I simply asked, May I order one? The woman I work with did (she is really wonderful, she positively glows with kindness), warning it could take six months or even longer since corporate would wait to get several orders before producing it. Okay, I said. I’ll wait.
The Parade ring came far more quickly than either of us hoped. Delight! Happiness! Now the season of parading around glove-less, hands full of rings, begins.
What will you be parading around in as the gloves come off?
