Fifth day of Christmas

As the song says, on the 5th day of Christmas, “my true
love gave to me, five golden rings!” What would the holidays be without an array of jewels and baubles? We hunted down our favourite pieces from FrAsh, Stella & Dot, the Antique Market and a variety of other Ottawa shops to bring you an affordable buffet wrapped up in a classical theme. Can you spot the jewels among the art? Isn’t a beautifully designed piece of jewelry a work of art in itself? We think so.
