The opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics is only two days away. To many, it’s the most exciting part of the Olympic Games. This is London’s chance to shine, and I’m certain we won’t be disappointed. While we wait in anticipation for Friday, let’s talk about something that is highly associated with the Olympics: the rings. The symbol of the Olympic Games, the five rings represent the union of the five continents. To me, the symbol stands for unity and hope and always inspires that feeling of excitement that comes with the start of the Games. So I thought, what better way to represent each ring than with a piece of jewelry? I scoured Marketplace for a matching piece to represent each color, and here’s what I found.
Hidalgo’s blue enamel ring is accented with 0.15 ct. t.w. diamonds.
Jewelry Innovations’ black ceramic band has textured diamond facets that give it extra glimmer and shine.
Kabana’s ring is set with red spiny oyster and accented with diamonds against rose gold.
Yellow diamonds dot this wedding band from Superior Diamond Cutters in 18k yellow gold.
Paramount Gems’ stackable Regalia band features emeralds surrounded by brilliant diamond halos.
