A weekend wedding in the Adirondack Mountains required some quick, light packing. With planned activities that ranged from kayaking and boating, to a round of mini golf, to a church wedding ceremony, and followed by a gorgeous wedding reception with incredible mountain views, my gold jewelry wardrobe had to be well-planned. It was necessary for each piece of jewelry to be able to work throughout the wide range of activities this short trip called for.
With a few staples like my engagement ring, diamond X earrings and gold Victorian bangle that I wore throughout, I found that the key to picking the perfect accessories for this trip was to rotate a few statement gold rings. I packed a few of my favorites, some “oldies but goodies” and one new ring–an 18k yellow gold Hope, Peace, Love “word” ring–my latest auction score! It came from Hampton Estate Auction, which just opened its doors last year, located in Lahaska, Pennsylvania.
For the wedding ceremony, I wore a bright red lace dress, which I accessorized with my three staples, and a pair of gold and ruby channel set eternity bands and a wide yellow gold cut-out band in between on my left hand. My right hand sported a trio of gold rings–my HOORSENBUHS Phantom ring, Amanda Hunt Two Moon ring, and my pinky twist ring from Halleh Jewelry. I loved this look, and it worked well for this special occasion.
The next day, we had lots of outdoor activities planned–kayaking, store hopping downtown, enjoying the views of the Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. Again, I used my three staples and added a few gold statement rings. As per usual, I packed all the wrong clothes, not being familiar with the cool lake breeze that makes the temperatures a lot colder than what is expected. We wandered into an Adirondack-themed store and picked out warm cardigan sweaters that can be customized with patches. The sweater ended up being the best purchase ever as it kept me contently warm and went perfectly with my gold rings–stacked on the left hand, two rings worn from the other day–HOORSENBUHS Phantom ring and the wide cut-out band. On the right hand my new Hope, Peace, Love “word” ring and Laura Tedesco’s L’Infinita ring.
Such a fun weekend spent with my new family, at a place I’ve always wanted to visit. The Adirondack Mountains are truly a relaxing and breathtaking place, with beautiful views and fresh crisp air. Nothing makes a trip more complete than family, friends, fun and some gold jewelry!
