The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry: A Heart Too Full

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, director Hans Canosa’s film based on the novel by Gabrielle Zevin, is the tale of a man whose life changes when new relationships — both paternal and romantic — upturn his previously lackluster (and comically grumpy) routine. As a bookstore owner, his fondness of stories bonds him with his new love interest and opens the door to a brighter future and fuller life. Our favorite part? Two Shane Co. rings make their film debut, shining brightly alongside seasoned movie stars. 

Amelia, portrayed by Lucy Hale, and Ismay, portrayed by Christina Hendricks, take center stage as two women who play integral roles in A.J.’s life. Amelia is a kind book rep who reminds A.J. what it’s like to be in love after the death of his wife. Ismay is A.J.’s former wife’s sister, a beautiful woman with a troubling secret. Both women have unique styles in the movie that reflect their personalities. See Shane Co.’s two featured rings below that capture the essence of each woman.  

Cultured Akoya Pearl and Diamond Ring

Amelia wears this stunning ring after A.J. proposes to her. It perfectly suits her personal style, which can be described as “coastal chic,” as the movie takes place on the fictional Alice Island in Massachusetts. This pearl ring speaks to the seaside setting and the subtle elegance Amelia carries with her. Pair with pearl studs for a lovely look we think Amelia would appreciate. 

Tahoe London Blue Topaz Ring

Ismay can be seen wearing this ring, which complements her New England English teacher vibe. She is often seen in plaids, camel tones, turtlenecks, and blues that pair well with her red hair. This London blue topaz ring is a perfect standout piece for her classic style and bold beauty. Shop the Tahoe London Blue Topaz Pendant to complete your look. While not featured in the film, we think Ismay would have loved this necklace to pair with her ring.  

We love the cozy charm of this movie, as well as its sense of mystery and fulfilling family scenes. It makes you want to curl up in a beautiful small-town bookstore, take long walks by the ocean, and wear jewelry that reflects the scenery all around it. Shop these two Shane Co. rings to romanticize your own storied life.
