Cyrano de Bergerac Rings

I stumbled across these rings today while visiting Jewel Box Dreams, and I am in love!

Cyrano de Bergerac rings

Classic literature + fashion accessory = win!

The creator, famed French designer Serge Thoraval, was known for incorporating famous literary works into his pieces.  He included words from Plato, Eluard and even the Bible.

The following is an excerpt from Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand:

Un baiser, mais à tout prendre, qu’est-ce?
Un serment fait d’un peu plus près,
une promesse plus précise,
un aveu qui veut se confirmer,
un point rose qu’on met sur l’i du verbe aimer,
C’est un secret qui prend la bouche pour oreille,
un instant d’infini qui fait un bruit d’abeille,
une communion ayant un goût de fleur,
C’est une façon d’un peu se respirer le coeur,
et d’un peu se goûter, au bord des lèvres, l’â me!

A kiss, when all is said,—what is it?
An oath that’s ratified,—a sealed promise,
A heart’s avowal claiming confirmation,—
A rose-dot on the ‘i’ of ‘adoration,’—
A secret that to mouth, not ear, is whispered,—
Brush of a bee’s wing, that makes time eternal,—
Communion perfumed like the spring’s wild flowers,—
The heart’s relieving in the heart’s outbreathing,
When to the lips the soul’s flood rises, brimming!

Roarke NYC: Redefining Statement Jewelry

I recently discovered Roarke NYC and it may just be my new favorite line of jewelry!  The brand provides a fresh, new perspective on accessories – very bohemian chic.

The designers – one from good ole North Carolina, and the other a former Bergdorf  Goodman buyer – bring their unique backgrounds and perspectives into the mix to create an amazing style fusion!

The Roarke NYC line is complete with unique materials including; beaded chiffon, mesh, leather and suede – to name a few.  The line provides statement pieces perfect for any occasion, the possibilities are endless!  Pair an Aztec bracelet with a cotton tank and cutoff jean shorts to spice up a mundane day-time outfit, or wear a studded necklace with your favorite little black dress for a completely updated and fresh evening look.

Here are a few pieces that I am just dying to get my hands on:
