Rings boys will love! Yes, I said the B word...

Trying to find that oh so perfect wedding band for your sugar? Has everything been looking the same? I searched long and hard for my mans perfect ring, never found it, so I got it handcrafted by a silversmith in town. Yes I said silver, though I didn't get my hubby a silver ring. I wish I would have! They are ten times cheaper. Don't let the word 'silver' scare you away! These rings will last you and your love a lifetime still, the great thing about silver is you have more metal to work with thickness wise and width wise, its also a slightly softer metal than gold so you can get creative with the details and design of his ring. Even making it look rustic and old by oxidizing the ring. Making it a greyish-black in detail. Enjoy these rings below for some inspiration and even check out the designers yourself! Find your future hubby a ring everyone will wish they had.

Inspiration Boards

I love becoming inspired by all the little things in life. 
The simple colors, old tattered finds, and amazing textures.
I’ve found that making inspiration boards is a fun and simple 
way to inspire! Just throw together some of your favorite 
images to create a theme or feel to your idea.
I just couldn’t stop! I love these color tones:) 
I created these through www.stylemepretty.com Try it out!
Enjoy my inspiration…

Peachy tones kill me! Love them:)

Sea Foam Green is my FAVORITE color:)
It just makes me smile, and paired with beautiful vintage
inspired photographs, breathtaking.

 I adore cream colors, and love the idea of the clocks and
frames hanging from the branches.

Throughout my whole life, I’ve always hated the color
purple…but now…IM OBSESSED! I just love the warm
tones with in this inspiration board I put together.
Just makes me feel at home. Just love the head piece also!
