happy 4th with vintage sparklers and fireworks

Happy 4th of July! I'm wishing you a happy 4th early because I have a guest post scheduled on Monday and you are going to love it - it's on designer swim wear. ;)

I made it to sunny CA and it is hot here! I won't complain though because I LOVE my sunshine and ocean, oh, and of course BK. ;)

You know what is funny? I've never associated sparkly rings with the 4th of July, but they are sparkly and beautiful, just like fireworks! So why not incorporate a little bit of fashion on this lovely holiday, right? Here are some vintage rings that are not only sparklers, they are gorgeous in every single way. I just love looking at gorgeous collectables - they are not only significant to history, they tell a story and shine as well!
I've actually considered having a vintage ring for an engagement ring, but that will be up to BK of course when it happens. However, I'm pretty sure he'll be great at figuring out what I want. Maybe we might even pick it out together when that time comes! ;) There are a number of sites to check out in regards to collectables and even figurines! I'm about to show you some gorgeous rings from Compton & Woodhouse.

Princess Kate now wears Princess Di's engagement ring and this ring was made to look similar. So pretty!
 Ahhh, I love emeralds and this ring is no exception!

The color combination on this ring looks like fireworks in the sky! ;) This is a blue topaz and purple amethyst.
Seriously I love the pink in this ring and it's a ruby that looks like a perfect ring for a glamorous evening!
Have you ever heard of a mercury mist topaz? Well this ring has a stunning topaz and diamonds to boot!
What a sweet black and white heart ring. It's so unique - I haven't seen anything like it!

Well this just gives you a glimpse of some of the beautiful items that Compton & Woodhouse have on their site. They also have some amazing collectables (I saw William and Kate everywhere!) and darling Disney collectables and lovely lady figurines.

Before I go let me send you on your way with a real celebration, via Katy Perry singing Firework! :) I looove this song...

Happy 4th of July!
