Men, if you want to dazzle the women in your life, it’s really quite simple: just buy us something shiny. For whatever reason, we women seem almost hard-wired to squeal and melt over anything that has a crystalline shine – kinda like how you all blame evolution for making you squeal and melt over any hot ass that walks by.
One quality that makes something pretty, into something special, is its uniqueness. No woman wants a cookie-cutter piece of jewelry, so take a little extra time and hunt out something that she’ll have to explain to her friends and therefore feel superior over them with. For some women, that means emptying your wallet, but exclusive doesn’t always equate to expensive. Buying from an independent designer can often give you quality craftsmanship, without paying extra just for the brand. If that sounds more appealing to you, then check out UK jewelry line, Rodgers and Rodgers.
Started in 2010 by designers Lynn Rodgers and Kate Rodgers, this line of necklaces, rings, earrings, and cuffs are all made with 22 ct gold and quality semi-precious stones. Each piece is handcrafted and you can even request bespoke designs. Unfortunately, there isn’t much info about the designers online except that they are based out of Derbyshire, England, but their work speaks for itself.
Delicate, feminine and just plain pretty, Rodgers and Rodgers is highly versatile for most women’s styles. I’m particularly in love with the stackable gem rings, which can be worn alone, mixed with other rings, or worn together to make a statement piece. The drop earrings are perfect as well for those with classic style, but if your special person has more eclectic tastes, then I recommend the Featherback stud earrings. Available in various stones, these typical round studs reveal a little surprise with their signature filigree backing – too bad it’s not possible to wear these backwards!
Rodgers and Rodgers is still a small brand, but has been featured in various style publications in the UK and was even spotted at New York Fashion Week. One can be sure with these successes under their belt, that buying from this line now will put you ahead of the curve and your lady will appreciate you garnering some fashion cred.
