Rings, right hand: "Each ring I wear represents someone I love. They're like my lucky charms. The claddagh is for my best friend in California. ... We joke that we are life partners. ... The middle ring was my Grandma Frankie's, and it is what started my obsession with turquoise. I haven't taken it off since I was 10. ... The other ring is for my other best friend."

Rings, left hand: "[My daughter is] due in July, and I wanted something red for her birthstone, and this is Mother of Pearl so it seemed fitting. Then these are my John rings, duh."
