What inspired you to create your blog?
My sister and I have always had a thing for jewelry – engagement rings in particular. When I was living in Chicago taking the bus to and from work every day, I was the person who would blatantly stare at other girls’ bling. And so, in February of 2010, when my sister and I both happened to be on maternity leave at the same time, we decided to start RingSpotters as a pet project! It has grown over the years and served as the platform for our latest venture, Idojour – a new online bridal boutique.
What makes your blog unique?
Both at RingSpotters and Idojour, we spend a lot of time creating content that we think will resonate with readers. We pour our hearts and souls into finding the best pieces and creating content that we are proud to share – from wedding day tips and celebrity engagement and wedding news to gorgeous bling and reader submission. And of course, we like to keep things clean, elegant and pretty.
How would you describe your personal style?
As a mom and an entrepreneur, comfort comes first. I’ll typically stick to neutral tones (blacks, grays and whites) and flats, but will accessorize with a colorful purse, chunky earrings or large sunglasses. When I dress up, however, I love to play with color and prints, experiment with bold makeup and funky up-dos (because my curly hair will never behave on its own) and will, without fail, don a pair of sky high heels.
What is your favorite piece on Gemvara?
I am obsessed with stackable rings – I love mixing and matching different pieces to create something unique and feminine. I would create a stack of delicate rings in 18k white gold in cool, tropical hues.
How would you style your favorite Gemvara piece?
I would wear them with the following outfit to one of the 4 summer weddings that I will be attending over the next few months!
