Rings True

We all live in a fleeting, invisible moment called "the present." Not only is now the time for us to take action, it also serves as a link between our warm, fading memories of the past, and the shining hope of the future.

Jewelry artist Beth Lawrence captures this passage of time in her elegant necklace. It has three interlocking circles: a muted, oxidized ring represents the past; a sterling silver ring wrapped with a band of silver wire captures the present; and a shimmering, gold filled ring represents the future. The three are held in place by an understated, 18-inch silver chain. More than just an elegant accessory, the necklace offers a constant reminder to live in the moment. Included is a card explaining the necklace's symbolism. Handmade in Nashville, TN.

Nashville artist Beth Lawrence can't remember a time she hasn't made jewelry—she even sold her work to neighbors and boutiques while still in elementary school. After earning her degree in studio art, she worked at galleries throughout Atlanta and Nashville before rekindling her passion for creating jewelry. Drawing inspiration from geometry, she makes her pieces with "love and a hammer," using sterling silver and gold-filled wire to form accessories that are simple and delicate.

    The picture did not do it justice. It is simple but pretty. I got lots of comments when I wore it. It was packaged very well.

        I wear this necklace every. single. day and I don't wear my wedding rings every day (due to job) I have people ask me multiple times a week where I got it from and what it means to me which makes me love it even more. While it is listed as "Past, Present and Future", I think of it as my husband, son and baby number two who is on the way. Ideally enough, the middle circle is sterling silver and my son's name is Sterling. I could​ gush forever about this necklace. Bravo to the designer for making my timeless piece.

          Love the message, love the style, love the versatility. I received it first as a gift. I wore it non-stop and broke the chain (my own carelessness). Missed it so much that I bought myself a replacement. The second came with a slightly shorter chain which was a little surprising...

            Comments about UncommonGoods Past Present Future Necklace:

            I was looking for a meaningful gift for my eldest daughter's 50th birthday! I give my daughters a meaningful jewelry gift for each decade's birthday.
            I thought the Past, Present, Future necklace was just right. On your 50th birthday it's time to take a moment to reflect upon the past . . . the present . . . and the future.
            I was pleasantly surprised at how delicate this necklace was, and I'm sure this aspect will please my daughter as well.
            Her birthday is yet to come, so she has not received the gift at this time.

            It is a beautiful meaningful piece ... Just wish the chain had been a little longer and not so delicate. Friend LOVED it though!

              As described in the site. It is small and delicate, but I think this adds to the uniqueness of the piece. I bought the earrings as well. I think this is my new "go-to" jewelry! Love it.

                  I gave this to an old friend who makes her own jewelry. She was impressed by the quality of the chain. She liked the wrap on the silver ring. And she liked that it hung with the gold one lowest.
