Check out this video I took of some really cray cray cocktail rings I saw at a shop in Taipei. I’ve lost a few days’ worth of sleep over them.
The rings are soo beautiful but they’re so expensive. We’re talking about US$400 and up, as much as US$1500+ each! These are not your ordinary fancy jewelry. Some were made using semi-precious stones and the craftsmanship is incredible.
A friend and I found it funny that we were complaining how expensive they were… because the shop is just an ordinary stall. I can’t even imagine how much these would go for if they were sold at a store in North America or in Europe.
I dunno. There were a few pieces that I really, really want but I had to walk away empty-handed because I have other priorities can’t afford them whereas my friends who can afford didn’t buy them because really, the prices were too much for what they were.
How did your weekend go? I've spent my weekend in Taipei with one of my besties and boy, I have heaps of stories to share. It's my first time to go to Taipei (and Taiwan)… and I had lots of fun. It's interesting because Taiwan is just an hour and forty five minutes from the Philippines but I never really had the opportunity to visit until last week. It's a wonderful, wonderful place and I can assure you I'm gonna do my best to go there more.
Please bear with me as I go through hundreds of photos we took while I try to catch up with work. It's gonna be a very busy week.
