One of the other occupations I toy with trying is jewelry designer. Since I don't have the time or energy to take jewelry making classes, I get to indulge my fantasy on Gemvara. Each piece of Gemvara jewelry is customizable in over 20 different natural gemstones and nine different precious metals. Once you've designed your piece, it's handcrafted by one of their artisans in New York City and delivered in less than two weeks with free shipping. You can even return an engraved piece with their 101 day return policy.
I've been seeing rose gold everywhere in magazines and in jewelry stores so I chose the Gemvara Puzzle Ring in rose gold. It actually looked a little like a ring I saw in a store window in Paris. The Puzzle Ring can be worn fitted together or even apart for a different look. They even sent it to me in Paris with no trouble. It's a fun memento to remember my trip too.
