Blue Steel's Crowned Heart Ring Sponsor Spotlight Review

Oh, you are gonna love this ring! I got to review this awesome heart shaped ring from Blue Steel and they call it the Crowned Heart Ring on their website. I thought it would make an awesome pinkie ring and it fit the bill perfectly until my RA meds quit working and my hands and fingers are now so swollen I can't wear any of my rings! I am so super duper angry that words cannot even describe how mad I am!
I see the RA doctor next week to figure out which other medication I can try but I am wondering now what will happen. This is the 8th medication we have tried and they all fail after a few months. But, maybe, just maybe, they will find one eventually that works. So, for now, I will just admire my rings in their boxes or in my jewelry box and dream of the day I can wear them again.
Now, this is not my pinkie but the one next to it. I couldn't hold the camera right and get my pinkie to line up right. It kept wanting to go sideways on me so I had to switch fingers. I think even this picture should give you a good idea how swollen my hands and fingers are. This is a size 8 ring and I usually am able to wear that on my ring fingers and as you can see, it wouldn't go past the knuckles.
So, I thought, okay, maybe it will be a pinkie ring and I almost got it on past the knuckle and then it stopped not quite reaching the bottom. So, it won't work either way. I am so upset and hope and pray that with the new meds my swelling will go down. I can't even wear my wedding bands!
Okay, we will move on. Isn't the ring gorgeous? It spoke to me the minute I saw it on Blue Steel's site and just had to choose it. You will love the simple, beautiful design as much as I do.  I have always liked my jewelry to be petite and simple. I am not a big fan of flashy big bold pieces that other people can manage to carry off and I applaud them for it. Good thing too, because I can just imagine a big flashy ring on a very swollen finger would look hideous.

Oh, by the way, I did not know this but I just read how to measure your finger for a ring and found something quite different than I would have thought. Here is what Blue Steel says to do to size your finger to the right ring size:

         Your ring should fit snuggly, comfortably on your finger; 

          snug enough that it doesn’t fall off but loose enough it can go over your knuckle
The temperature does change the size of your finger.
Depending on the time of the day and the weather, your finger will shrink and grow in size. For the best results, measure your finger in the afternoon while they are warm.

Measure your finger more than once.
Measure your finger 3 or4 times for the most accurate measurement. Ask a friend to help you out to make sure you have the right size.
Now, see, to me, my hands swell by the afternoon so that wouldn't work for me. So, I was shocked to see that but I bet that is for people who don't have RA. The longer the day goes on, the worst my fingers get, so this won't work for me, but for you guys who don't have RA, keep these tips in mind when out shopping for a ring.

Blue Steel has some really awesome pieces and I gave away a bracelet not long ago from their collection and in case you don't remember, here is another look at it so you can see how awesome their jewelry is.  Does it ring a bell now? It's the Hearts and Butterflies bracelet. I loved it because of the two colors mingled together.
Now, here is another ring that I liked really well and it's called the Eternity Ring. I just love the simpleness of the ring and how it sparkles. This would make an awesome ring to wear on a middle finger.  If I ever get the chance to have this one, I think I am gonna go with a size 9 and hopefully that will at least go on my pinkie if nothing else. Oh, and you know what? These look good enough that I think you could use them as wedding bands and save a ton of money!  
Lastly, I think this ring is truly awesome! It is called Enchantment and I don't know if it will go with the band above since they are both so thick in size, but it would make an awesome set if they did go together.  But, I can also see myself wearing it by itself.  It really is an awesome ring and when I picked out my pieces, it wasn't on their site yet or believe you me, I would have gotten this one. And it does have a unique quality:  This Piece Is Made From Surgical Grade Stainless Steel! Same Stuff The Doctors Use!

They are having a sale on all Heart related jewelry including the bracelet I just showed you along with some very awesome rings! Just click on the banner. I have the link to the site in the banner and it should take you there.
I will leave you with these earrings that I found called Glamour and boy, they sure do look good, don't they?  I think this is a pair that I would love to wear out to dinner one night. So, as you can, Blue Steel really does have a wide range of awesome jewelry that has alot of WOW! factor to it.

I have seen there products on facebook but often wondered about the quality with it being so cheap price wise. I love the bracelet. I never purchase on-line items without a review from someone I trust so thanks for letting me know the company is legit.
