It's a ring thing.


I'm loving all the oversized rings I'm spying at the moment. Karen over at Where Did U Get That? (top left)* has been wearing them for ages and now I'm noticing them all over the place. (Click to enlarge pictures.)

We've probably all got pots of costume jewellery at home to choose from but I couldn't resist a little scroll over at Astley Clarke. I'm seriously loving their cocktail rings, from the almost affordable Cherry Blossom Ring ivory enamel topaz and pearls (below left, £295) to the pretty much unattainable Orivesi Ring with cabochon rose quartz and diamond accents (bottom right, £3,695.)


*(I only discovered Karen's blog recently and it has quickly become one of my favourite fashion reads. She puts together high fashion looks from a mixture of thrift, high street and designer pieces. I am seriously in awe of some of the things she thrifts!)

  1. I love the big rings too. I have 2 Swarovski rings - green and black - which I wear so much, day or night. I'm going to check out Karen's blog - she sounds fantastic.

  3. Hmm, most affordable clearly doesn't mean *actually* affordable.

    Funnily enough I've just bought a new dress for a wedding and decided I should accessorise with a big ring and hat rather than a necklace.

    Oh I'm so fashion forward!

  5. They are very pretty but I would almost certainly be blind after wearing one of those (or facially deeply scarred at the very least).
