Happy 2019, everybody! A quick note before I begin: I'll still be posting every weekday but I've decided to stick to the main jeweller and stop adding the two bonus links that have, until now, accompanied each post. It's a time-management issue — I'm sure you can all relate!

With that out of the way, let's start things off with an evil eye (of sorts) to ward off any bad stuff this year. All porcelain rings above by the UK's Kerchung! (Karen Cheung).

Pendants also available!
