Recently, I've found that I finally have a little time to start my blog - sadly, thanks to the economy - but, luckily I will have more time to devote to Martha Stewart inspired projects, reading blogs of farm dwellers in Idaho and catching up on all my celebrity beauty secrets. While I do have less "real work" I am committed to making my blog NESTPARTY | Guide to a Stylish Life an awesome distraction from reality one fantastic idea at a time.

{OBSESSION} Cameo Appearance

Sunday, July 26, 2009
My husband was so tres sweet when he surprised me with a truly modern - and rather unexpected - gift 2 days ago. Apparently, he got this absolutely charming cameo ring from Zales. He was forced to be at the mall for 2 hours waiting for his iPhone to be "restored" at the Apple Store, thereby allowing him to have amble time to by his wife a new right-hand ring.

Ring:
Oval Carved Turquoise and Charcoal Grey Quartz Cameo Ring in 14K Gold - $149, Zales







Alas, this has led to my latest {OBSESSION} the cameo. I found that it's super easy to work into modern fashion, not to mention it's almost Parisian when it's ivory and onyx. I'm in love... it's so very Royal Family, don't you think?

I love cameos. They are old fashioned yet still beautiful. I gave custom cameos to all of my bridesmaids.

I completely share your soft spot for cameos! Did anyone notice the fabulous cameos in the movie The Count of Monte Cristo? Ornella Muti is wearing the most gorgeous cameo earrings in that film. Unfortunately I haven't found anything similar in real life yet...
Beautiful blog.
