“Stand up straight for a second,” he asked her as she tried to get her books in order.

“I need to go. Patrick, you said?” Thousands of butterflies fluttered in her stomach and she couldn’t believe that she had just told him that she had to go. Stay, stay, stay!

“Hold on a minute,” he said, and before she could say anything else, he grabbed her face and kissed her. Her arms went weak and all of her books dropped onto his feet with a sudden thud.

“Ouch!” he flinched and she felt her cheeks burning.

“That was one hell of a kiss, Pinky,” he smiled at her.

Ola Natashina Gandelman was born in March of 1989 to a single mother in Leningrad (now known as St. Petersburg), Russia.

While trying to raise Ola on her own, her mother would often provide her with children's books to occupy her, thus igniting Ola's love for literature and story-telling. The first stories she was exposed to were the works of Hans Christian Andersen, the Grimm Brothers, and especially a wide variety of Russian folklore. These fairytales and their unique darkness and characteristics found their way into her heart and stories, claiming it to be their home. 

When Ola was old enough to hold a pencil she started to draw. Her style changed with age, though she was mostly sketching as a young girl. The big turnaround came after her first book “Colors of Awakening” was finished. Ola developed a unique style, saturated with naïve and magical realism characteristic. From that point on all of Ola’s paintings were illustrations and stories from her book, created in her signature style. Now Ola allows to follow her into that magical world in colors as well.

Nowadays, when Ola isn't writing fantasy war stories or participating in art exhibitions around the world, she spends her days reading, playing the piano, training hopefully for half a marathon and practicing Yoga. She lives with her husband and their cheerful yet somewhat cowardly dog and a snobbish cat. All three are among her biggest fans.

      How to Measure your Ring Size

      Determining someone's correct ring size, by using a properly fitting ring or by measuring the finger in question, is important to ensure a perfectly fitted ring whether for yourself or a someone else. Below you will find two easy methods to measure ring size. However, if at any point you feel unsure, please feel free to contact us for further assistance.

      Method 1: Measuring a Ring You Already Own
      • Select a ring that properly fits the intended finger
      • Measure the INSIDE diameter of the ring
      • Match the measurement to the conversion chart to the right. If the ring falls between two sizes, we advise you to order the larger of the two sizes.

      Please note: Rings with a particularly thick band will feel tighter than those with a thin band. In those cases, we recommend buying a full size larger than your normal ring size.

      Method 2: Measuring Your Ring Finger

      How to Measure Ring Size

      Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; it should be snug enough to stay safely on, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle.

      Please note: Your finger size can change throughout the day, so it is a good idea to measure at the end of the day when your fingers are at their largest. Do not measure when your hands are cold; your fingers will be at least half a size smaller.

      Step 1:

      Cut a piece of string or a ¼ inch wide piece of paper to about 2 inches in length. Wrap the piece of string or paper around the base of your ring finger. Wrap around both the base of your finger and your knuckle if your knuckle is noticeably larger than the base of your finger.

      Step 2:

      Mark the string or paper at the exact point that it overlaps to make a complete circle around your finger. Do this for where it overlaps on your knuckle as well, if you needed to measure it.

      Step 3:

      Unroll the string or paper and place it against a ruler with millimeter measurements. The length of your measurement is the circumference of your ring finger. If you needed two marks because of your knuckle, make a new mark exactly between the two and use that mark as your measure. Refer to the ring chart above to get your ring size. 

      *Note: Refer to the ring chart above to get your ring size. For example, if the circumference measures 62 mm, your ring size is a 10. Or, if you know your ring size is a 19, then your equivalent ring size is 8 3/4.
