Rings and Things

Without a couple of chunky bits of metal on my fingers I may as well have left the house without any knickers on. Although Coco Chanel once said you should take off the last accessory you put on, in the age when accessory is king I just can’t get enough ring. Quite often I post photos of my nails or holding a bag, inadvertently showing the world the jewellery adorning my digits. So often I get asked where the rings are from that I thought I’d start posting a snippet of my favourites, as well as keep you up to date with my accessory drawer.

The panda ring caused quite the stir when I tweeted a picture of my new manicure a few weeks ago. I picked it up while waiting for a train to Bristol – the Accessorise stores in train stations are somewhat a godsend (or cause me to spend so much money) – and popped it on my finger when I arrived. The cute panda peering over a finger with its little diamond eyes is quite the scene to behold. Especially when it only cost £7.00 – bargain! The blue skull above is from Topshop and is basically a gold ring dipped in a varnish; not by me mind, it’s actually designed this way. I love how it goes with pretty much anything and the pastel blue calms down an otherwise hardcore and rocky accessory. The bubble probably wasn’t supposed to be there, but I like to think of it as a quirky attribute and my skull has a story to tell. Pretty sure this was around the £10.00 mark.

Pastels are all the range at the moment, so the big chunky multi-coloured ring goes with everything while channelling the candy trend. Hailing from New Look for about £8.00, the ring is pretty huge and leaves me feeling like my fingers are having a bit of a workout to keep themselves upright. It’s a strange size too, not quite fitting any one of my fingers, but I do feel like it’s the only ring I need when I do manage to put it on. My favourite and practically everyday ring is this silver beast from River Island; the cross is really light and comfortable to wear, sitting across two fingers and being somewhat a statement piece. It goes with everything and isn’t too gothic to make a girlie outfit feel wrong… It’s possibly the best £7.00 I think I’ve ever spent.

If you like this little post let me know, and I’ll continue to give you a peek into previously unseen LBQ territory! Do you have favourite rings that you can’t live without?
