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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Past Present Future Necklace:

    I got this as requested for my birthday. I wanted to love it and did at first. I had it shortened and it was perfect but after only 2-3 months the gold plating started chipping off. For that kind of money it should last a lot longer.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Past Present Future Necklace:

      This necklace is perfect to wear everyday, for anyone. Myself (22), my mother (61), and grandmother (85) all have different styles and it manages to go nicely with just about anything.

      I bought this as a symbol of gratitude for the strong women who have come before me. My grandmother passes along her love and wisdom just as my mother now does to her children, and her children's children. They give themselves, and that gift perpetuates.

      For all of us, the design of this necklace acts as a beautiful and delicate reminder of our connection across generations ("Past Present Future").

      Now to buy some for my sisters!

      Thank you, Beth Lawrence!

          Too small, too delicate, packaging of poor quality.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Added the "wrapped gift" - the box was dented and of poor quality. Added a "special note", half the note was missing since the printing started halfway down the card.

                Perfect size necklace for my daughter-in-law's birthday. She does not wear jewelry and loved this piece. It is unique and meaningful after the birth of her baby girl; my first grandchild.

                The necklace is daintier than expected. Would be nice if jewelry could be shown on a real person or mannequin head to give you a better idea of the size. On the necklace I received, the end of the wire that's wrapped around the middle silver circle is not "tucked in" on the ends and it snags my clothing.

                Very happy with the packaging and delivery of product

                  I have wanted one of these for years. One thing that I didn't realize is that the largest ring hangs at the bottom, so it doesn't wear the way it is photographed. I still love it.
