Kiss The Ring


I have a strong appreciation for bling. Sometimes I'll see a big sparkly ring or bracelet and it will literally make my stomach hurt. It's either a medical condition or envy, I haven't fully identified it yet. Fabulous jewelry is such a fun part of being a girl; getting it, wearing it, showing it off and making other girls' stomachs ache. I'm at the age where most of my friends are engaged or married, and they've all been very lucky recipients of beautiful rings and other expressions of love. Some of these girls have been on the receiving end of the work of Hattie Gruber, of the appropriately named Kiss The Ring NY.

Emerald Chandelier Earrings
Hattie, who hails from Morehead City, NC, spent years in New York working for Zwikker & Zacher in Manhattan honing her skills as a jewelry designer and consultant. In 2010 Hattie decided to strike out on her own, using her knowledge and fantastic taste to found Kiss The Ring. The collection ranges from simple to spectacular; Hattie does everything from earrings for a night out on the town to engagement rings.

Diamonds, Pink Tourmaline=Love
Her custom work is amazing; if you have a vision Hattie can help you create it. Hattie has built great relationships with her vendors over the years and her knowledge of the market allows her to provide her fantastic designs to her clients at excellent prices (***IMPORTANT NOTE, this means more bling for your buck!!!***) The luxury of Kiss The Ring is the experience, the service; Hattie is your design concierge, and gives you (or your beau) the chance to create a special piece for the big day or for no reason at all.

Stackable bands for the wedding and beyond. Love this look.
I know for a fact that Hattie has a few select pieces on sale for the month of February, and what a good month to pass this information along just in case someone is in need of a last minute Valentine's Day gift!
