From nail to midi rings, it’s clear that excess is in when it comes to decorating your digits. Rather than throwing on all of your favorite pieces and hoping for the best, get the job done right in one fell swoop.

Best of the Season’s Symbolic Jewels: Back to Nature

A single leaf is the ancient heraldic symbol for happiness. The leaves of the oak tree are religious emblems of faith and endurance. Ivy leaves symbolize a strong and lasting friendship.
