I love rings- the bigger the better! I was recently organizing my jewellery collection and I counted 30 rings (not including my sentimental rings) .  Here are the pictures of the aforementioned ring bling in all their splendour!

A fun twist on the cocktail ring is the nail ring, seen at the 2011 Spring/Summer Binetti show at NYC Fashion Week.  This trend makes me want to get off the couch and bejazzle my sparkly polsihed nails!

Helpful Hint: A great tip that a friend shared with me to prevent your affordable rings from turning your fingers green (we've all been there!); is to coat the inside of the ring band with a thin layer of clear nail polish.  This will prevent your fingers from taking on the colour of a moldy piece of bread!


  1. nice collection, miss! I always seem to forget to put rings on... these are fab!



  2. I love rings, statement, cocktails and two-three fingers ones! But 30? WOW!
