Put a Ring on It

Fall 2010 346 {Beautiful Baubles by Parisian Designer, Kirat Young, recently spotted at a trunk show at  a bientot in Houston}

If lamps are my favorite accessory for the home, then rings are my favorite accessory to wear. I may have a bit of an addiction to fun rings. While I love chandelier earrings, bold necklaces, and pretty bracelets, rings seem to have taken precedence in my line-up of accessories. While my engagement ring and wedding band are set in white gold (I chose it because I don’t like how soft Platinum is), I prefer gold when it comes to costume or fun jewelry. I may be a little like Carrie Bradshaw in that regard (Poor Aidan. He never stood a chance!). Since I’ve been on a bit of a ring kick, I thought I’d round-up some of my favorite pieces that have recently caught my eye. And in case you were wondering, yes, I did listen to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” while working on this post!

These beauties would be fabulous any time of day. After all, it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, right? I’ll take one of each, please.

{Charles de Temple 18 kt gold, Pearl and Diamond Ring via 1st Dibs, Gold and “Turquoise” Yves Saint Laurent Enamel Ring via Net a Porter, Buccellati Coral Ring from 1st Dibs, 1960s Lapiz and Diamond Ring}

I love the organic quality of these rings, from the shapes to the actual stones.

These animal-shaped rings are playfully chic!

{Monica Vinader Stacking Semi-Precious Rings, Pippa Small Greek Opal Ring, both from Net a Porter, House of Lavande 1950s Amethyst Ring, 1960s Italian Sculptural Gemstone Ring from 1st Dibs}

What could be prettier than a beautiful gemstone ring? Whether your style is classic, sculptural, or organic, these lovelies add a bit of polish to any outfit.

{Yves Saint Laurent Arty Flower Ring, Marlene Stowe Puzzle Ring, L. Frank 7-Part Diamond Ring}

These rings might be the most versatile of the lot. They go with just about everything! I think the 7-Part Diamond ring would be a very cool alternative to a traditional engagement ring or wedding band.

Let’s be honest, most of the rings previously mentioned in this post belong in the dream category. If you want a statement making piece, but only have a few bucks to spare, most of these “pop rocks” are under $5!

  1. God that was amazing!! I’m a ring fanatic and they’re definitely my favourite jewelry item as well- never leave the house without my rings on:) I couldn’t possibly pick a favourite though that YSL enamel ring is at the top of my wish list this year- adore it! A fabulous selection of gorgeousness in this post!!

  2. Great post. I was just in there yesterday drooling over all the pretties! Bought myself an alphabet jiggly jangly bracelet!! So wanting them to go online – completely!

  3. This past year I have been collecting Kate Spade rings. I love to wear one everyday! I still just wear one on each hand but may graduate to more as my collection grows! These are great choices, I love your taste!

  4. I LOVE this post. I am a cocktail ring whore. My present twitcon on my personal & blog’s twitter is of a ginormous butterfly that I got for $9 at JCpenney. ( @IndulgeNdesign ) My rings get bigger & bigger & I feel naked without ’em. Big rings & bangles, layered necklaces, dangly earrings, I love it all.
