ICONIC I: Elizabeth Showers' Double Holey Surfer Ring

Iconic. To us, it means classic and timeless.  Fresh, and effortlessly feminine.  Iconic pieces are those that call us back, to wear again and again.  Even after all my years as a jewelry designer, the pieces that become iconic are often a surprise – that was definitely the case with my Double Holey Surfer ring.  

I designed the original Double Holey Surfer ring a year ago as a one-of-a-kind -- and have worn it almost every day since!  The light blue-green of the varascite stone is so unique.  The stones seem to glow, especially set in 18karat yellow gold.  Like Caribbean waves splashing up on a beach, this ring makes me think of the special times with my sister and her family at one of our favorite getaways, Harbour Island in the Bahamas. 

So iconic is this piece that I designed a version that’s at the center of my Spring/Summer Collection this year.  Part of my new, mixed metal collection, the Double Holey Surfer ring is available in green turquoise, blue turquoise, or mother-of-pearl set in 18karat gold, with a rhodiumed sterling silver tree branch shank. The Double Holey Surfer is inspired by my love for sea, and by the grounding peace of the forest.  This piece reminds me to breathe, and appreciate the beauty of life all around me.
The Double Holey Surfer ring goes with anything; jeans and a white T, or a jewel-toned jersey knit dress.  It’s on my finger for a yoga class or an elegant event.  It’s got to be wearable to be Iconic!
