The sighting: Actress and singer Selena Gomez recently revealed a new piece of jewelry: a wraparound ring with the letter B, worn on the ring finger of her left hand. This bling made its appearance right around the same time that Gomez revealed her relationship with music producer Benny Blanco, so fans are assuming the two facts are connected.

The jewels: Gomez’s B ring is a wraparound take on the toi-et-moi style, featuring a letter and a diamond. According to Page Six, the ring is a custom style by Jacquie Aiche, featuring 0.44 TCW of diamonds and valued at $3,250.

The trends: Toi-et-moi rings have been big for the past few years, and while this piece isn’t a traditional example of that style, I think it still counts as close enough to check that trend box. Sentimental styles are also trendy: shoppers of every generation love the idea of a piece that is meaningful to their hearts as well as delightful to their eyes.

As to whether or not this specific style has trend potential? Just google “Selena Gomez B ring” and you’ll see how many knockoffs there already are.

What do we think? There’s nothing revolutionary about the design of this ring, but you have to admit that it’s a very sweet piece. Selena Gomez has had only the loveliest things to say about her new B-initialed beau, Benny Blanco, and the fact that she’s been spotted with this ring on her ring finger multiple times suggest that the relationship really is going strong.

My question here is about the placement. Was it Blanco’s idea for her to wear his initial on her ring finger, or was it a surprise to him? When Selena shows Benny Blanco the B on her ring finger, does she joke about saving the real estate for an engagement ring? Are they treating it as a promise ring, or is the placement irrelevant? We can only speculate.

Judgement: 14/10 for a very cute sentimental piece.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
