Smidge Obsessed











I'm becoming a smidge obsessed with rings at the moment. I've always fancied a big, knock your socks off ring, but lately I'm really loving the armor rings and other styles that extend down over the middle joint. Vivienne Westwood does a very nice armor ring, the silver ring in the second image is one of hers, and Marc Jacobs does a really nice long silver spiral ring that I'm into also.

And then (and as you can see, it has become a bit obsessive) there's the double finger rings. The knuckle dusters. So many cool examples around of those too. I think one of those could be quite handy for some site meetings. "Whad'ya mean you won't have the gabion walls finished in time eh?"

Anyone else been afflicted yet with a similar obsession? Has it developed into a purchase? Would love to hear about it.

I'm with you Jules, the bigger the better, and more than one at a time is even better again. What's not to love about a big, fat, fistfull of bling? K xx

The rings are gorgeous, I too love the armour rings, but my hands are not delicate, and I always feel they look awful with hugs rings.

The photography of those rings is wonderful.

Oh yes standover tactics....actually those could do a bit of damage ... no I'd probably break my own finger. Very cool.

I know they would stay in a drawer if I ever bought them, so I just obsess away in theory, and things usually go out of style after a while.

I think that's what they're FOR... sort of unobtainable.

Exactly what DJ said! I would think I'm all tough and bad ass and then I would just hurt myself :) I do love these though and it would be worth the pain!

well if i were still a teeny bopper (casting no aspersions on yourself, J!) i would be mad for these things. but since i'm a grownup and realize i have short arms on a short body and that having alot of things hanging off me totally DRIVES ME CRAZY! i will pass on the rings and bracelets.)

but i will say possibly we are psychic cousins cuz i totally went for that rug too in your last post.

now must take a patient cat outside..xoxo
