We play a road trip game called “I’m about that.” Laura and I played it on the way to Atlanta market this year, and it’s a new winner. It’s the easiest game — you say, “I’m about” and then you fill it in with anything. ANYTHING.
This summer I was lucky enough to hop on the back of my BF’s BMW motorcycle and travel 6,500 miles across The Pacific Northwest making this my longest adventure yet. He took me to places I had been dreaming about since I was little. I am still not even half-way done with the travel diaries because there was just simply so much. And I need more time in the day. I really hope to get them all completed over the Thanksgiving holiday as I will be in Houston for one week and will have lots of down time. In the mean-time though— I am so excited to be sharing my favorite places from the awfully BIG adventure with you over here on The Simon and Ruby blog. These were the destinations that captured my attention and sparked my imagination.

As above, so below, Florence Italy radiates with warmth. We’ve used the flavor of the city streets, the grandeur of the Duomo, & the muted palettes of the Masters to inspire our Firenze Collection.
Within the Firenze Collection, you’ll find hand shaped domes of brass and copper which embrace semi precious stones in the warm palettes of the city. These halos of oxidized metal mimic both the dome of the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral and the metallic halos found in many Italian Renaissance paintings.
Every piece in the new Fall 2017 collection comes in 5 colors – garnet, linen, ivy, silver, & spice.
When New Orleans artist (& friend!), Ashlee Nell Rivalto stopped by Nashville, we took full advantage & shot a style lookbook. We met Ashlee a couple of years ago in New Orleans when we were there for the Being Boss Vacation & hit it off immediately. This kind hearted, free spirited lady has impeccable style that is a mix of southern classic and breezy bohemian. We just knew that our jewels & her style would make a killer cocktail.
So, if you’ve been around for a bit, you know that we’re just a teeny obsessed with stones. Like, it might be a bit of a problem. But, we’ve obviously figured out the perfect way to feed the obsession – designing jewelry that focuses on the beauty of natural stones. We want to share a few of our favorites and a little bit of interesting info about them.
