Family is the most important pillar of my life, and when I look down at my hands, my stack rings remind me of the unconditional love that surrounds me and is my way to cherish the memories and significant moments of my life.

What I love about stacking rings is that you enjoy them for yourself. That’s the beauty of rings. You get to see and admire them unlike other pieces of jewelry like necklaces or earrings that are seen on you by others.
My hands cause me to occasionally pause while looking at them and be reminded of all that I am grateful for: my family, the unconditional love that surrounds me, and the meaningful moments that motivate and inspire me.
Stacking rings are my way to Cherish the Memories.
It all began with a channel set diamond band in yellow gold, an heirloom piece from my mother’s jewelry box; It’s a subtle reminder and inspiration of my parents hard work as they built a beautiful life for us here and something I hold close to my heart.
My yellow gold rope band reminds me of the visits to India to see our late grandmother who stacked a gold band with her rings. She would share with us traditions and stories of her life in India and continued to do so when my girls visited India at a young age. These first two bands are a touch of my heritage and honoring the blend of old traditions with new ones.
With subtle sparkles of diamonds, my wreath band is an important reminder for me to take the time to immerse myself in nature. A few years back, I made a resolution to go on outdoor walks regularly. It has been a ritual for me to do just that on most Sunday mornings with my friend Amy. Whether it is either at Edgewood Park or the Stanford Dish for the last few years, it’s a moment of self-care and a much-needed digital detox allowing me to be present.
My bezel diamond in white gold with milgrain details is the classic band reminding me of my life partner, my husband Amaury and our family of four. It reminds me of everything from our trips to Belgium to our evenings in my daughters' rooms catching up. Whether big or small, I cherish the times we are all together.
The newest band in my ring stack was gifted to me by my sister. It is a one-of-a-kind eternity band of unexpected hexagon shapes bezel set in gold. My sister and I have a unique close bond that often surprises people, and the unexpectedness of this band and the full circle is the reminder of the journey we have been on as entrepreneurs, as sisters, and as best friends.
