Ladies, have you ever been out and noticed that your rings or earrings just wouldn't stay in place? Annoying, isn't it? Not only does slipping and sliding jewelry look unappealing, you may also lose it altogether, and that can be devastating to say the least.
I don't have a ton of jewelry, but I do want to protect what little I do have. I have a few necklaces that I adore, and a nice ruby tennis bracelet. I don't have any earrings anymore, since they somehow got lost in our latest move. (Made me so sad, but thankfully, none of them were overly valuable.)
I do however, have some very expensive wedding rings, which were appraised at $40,000.00. My husband had these custom designed for me straight from the International Diamond Mines in Israel. They have over 6 carats of hand-picked diamonds of good color and clarity, and I would absolutely die if anything happened to them! I find that I am constantly looking down and making sure they're still on my hand. It certainly doesn't help that after losing the baby weight from 2 pregnancies, they don't fit as snugly as I'd like. The slipping and sliding truly makes me paranoid, even though I do have them insured.
Luckily, I recently discovered BlingGuard, who specializes in keeping a woman's jewelry comfortably in place! These come in generously sized sets, so once you're done using them, you can throw them out and replace them with fresh ones.
About BlingGuard :
From Jenny, the founder of BlingGuard:
THE PROPOSAL. In 2005, I was given the greatest gift one can imagine. I was dating a remarkable man who invited me for a weekend in New York City. That Saturday in an Audrey Hepburn moment, we walked out of our hotel and headed to Tiffany & Co. We were greeted by the store manager and led to a private room with a table set with 2 glasses of champagne and breakfast. A few minutes later my boyfriend began saying sweet things and proposed!
THE CHALLENGE. Later in the day as I started to come back to earth I was admiring my beautiful ring and saw that it kept falling over the side of my finger. I took it to the jeweler and the only solution available was to place two small bearing balls on the inside. I was horrified! I did not want to permanently change my new ring. At the same time, I was worried about losing my ring like I had so many other rings back in high school.
THE OBSESSION. I was convinced there was a better way to solve these problems. As I was looking for a solution, I started noticing my friends, colleagues, and women everywhere seemed to have the same issue. Then, at my sister's rehearsal dinner, disaster struck. My Grandmother lost the ring my Grandfather had given her... it was GONE!
THE SOLUTION. That night I decided we had to find a solution. BlingGuard BlingWraps are that solution. They keep rings perfectly positioned so they look their best, and they help prevent them from sliding off your fingers.
Not only does BlingGuard offer BlingWraps for rings, they also have BlingDots to help keep slipping earrings in place. Check out the before and after shots of both of these products:
Pretty cool, right?! When I learned about the BlingWraps, I was really excited. I knew this might be the perfect solution to help keep my expensive wedding set safe.
My Review :
The awesome folks at BlingGuard generously sent me a set of both the BlingWraps for rings and BlingDots for earrings. (Since I don't technically have any earrings right now, I enlisted the teen next door to help try these out!)
Both products come in durable, chic looking little cases. I know...Packaging isn't the most important part...But I happen to love it when products come in pretty cases or boxes. It's a special little touch that makes me remember a brand later on.
Here are my wedding and engagement rings. As you can see, these puppies aren't cheap. (Although they can definitely use a good cleaning!) I was eager to try the BlingWrap and see if it would keep the slipping and sliding under control.
The BlingWrap itself is totally invisible. It wraps around your finger, right where your rings would sit. It's very comfortable to wear, and honestly, you can't even tell that it's there.
I was able to easily slide my rings over the BlingWrap, and to my surprise, I have not experienced any sliding around. I did use 2 of the wraps, since my issue is due to sizing, and this has worked out perfectly. It's really nice, since before I found this product I was using a clunky, awkward feeling plastic ring accessory that looked ugly. Since BlingWraps are invisible and don't change the profile of your rings, no one knows it's there but you.
Overall, I am very pleased with my products from BlingGuard. My rings have stayed in place perfectly, and I have not been anywhere near as paranoid about losing them. The neighbor teen who tested the BlingDots also had wonderful results. She said her earrings never start loosening or slipping out of her ears. These are awesome products, and every woman should have a set in her jewelry box!
