Turns out I’m adventurous! But I just love novelty. Semantics?
What is Amphora?
Amphora is a patent pending necklace that lets you quickly attach your most cherished ring (or rings), without unclasping or removing the chain.
Why do you need one?
Every time you take off your ring, you risk losing it. But leaving it on all the time, even while cleaning, cooking, applying lotion, and working out leads to a dirty, dull, often scratched or damaged ring. Precious metals begin to lose their shine, and we all know diamonds don’t sparkle when they’re dirty! Amphora is an elegant and luxurious solution. It takes only a second to attach your ring, and Amphora not only holds it securely but displays it in a whole new glamorous way.
Amphora is a godsend for pregnant women or others whose fingers swell on occasion, or for those who work in the healthcare industry and must remove their rings for hygienic reasons. Amphora is also an ideal gift for any woman, especially the newly engaged, married, or pregnant.
Each necklace comes packaged in a glamorous gift box, and enclosed are simple and clear instructions for how to use and care for your Amphora. Each is expertly and lovingly made in Los Angeles, California, out of the highest quality silver or solid (never vermeil!) yellow, white, or pink gold.
I would LOVE one of these! I’m losing weight, and my rings don’t fit well enough to wear comfortably — but I’m not ready to get them resized yet!
