a pretty penny

I was in Kansas City last weekend visiting my college roommate and we spent some time shopping in the Plaza. The Plaza is an absolutely lovely outdoor shopping area with some great shops (Lill, Anthropologie, Paper Source and Halls are some of my favorites), yummy restaurants and gorgeous architecture. The developer referenced Seville, Spain while creating the layout and design in 1922. My roommate's husband bought both her engagement and wedding band at Tivol on the Plaza so we stopped my for a cleaning. While we were waiting for our rings to get sparkled, I wandered around the store and stopped dead in my tracks in front of the Penny Preville section. I have very simple tastes in jewelry and there isn't a designer that I am attached to. I was initially interested because one of her rings reminded me of my own engagement ring, but the more I looked, the more I liked.

Here are some of my favorites from her site. A lot of care and and attention to detail went into each piece. Some are so vintage looking, you would swear they were antiques. I am sure that everything is pricey and swanky and mostly an object of daydreams, but it is fun to dream...

I thought it might be fun to stack a few of these as a wedding band...
