“The art of ring stacking is no longer exclusive to delicate, whisper-thin bands. […] For the nostalgic girl, combine classics like a standard signet and oversize jewels, with an intricate lace ring for a newer look. Buy one statement ring two sizes too small to wear above the knuckle for added interest. […] For a more delicate look, decorate your digits with pearls of all sizes. Stock up on inexpensive ring sets and experiment by stacking on your pinky.” Text source:

After a local volcano – known as Mount Vesuvius – erupted in 79 A.D., the thriving Roman city of Pompeii was buried in meters of ash. Still in the process of being uncovered, scientists have spent over four hundred years extracting artifacts from the ground beneath the feet of present-day Pompeii tourists.
