Cocktail Rings

My big jewelry obsession right now is cocktail rings. They are so glam, and it's fun to pile them on for extra impact. I've been wearing three at once - a raw amethyst, a sapphire and turquoise cabachon cluster in a honeycomb setting by Pade Vavra, and an antique dark blue topaz in a branch setting. Added to this grouping is another gorgeous piece by Pade Vavra - the peridot cluster ring in the foreground - given to me by my wonderful boyfriend for Xmas. 

There are so many fabulous options out there at every price point. If I could wear a ring on each finger I would. Here are some of my current favorites...








Rings from top: topaz cluster, Anthropologie; enamel "Arty Dots" ring, Yves Saint Laurent; Noir crystal elephant, Anthropologie; amethyst dome, Anthropologie; sapphire stalactite, Pade Vavra; "Angel Aura" crystal ring, Mali Sabatasso; peridot and sapphire peacock, Pade Vavra; faceted amethyst, Lera de Marini

Oh, and p.s., the gold swan dish was found for $1 at the thrift store and the beaded ikat clutch is by Moyna

I agree, cocktail rings are definitely a "glam" accessory. But I also love how they can dress up any outfit, even just a cute blouse, jeans, and flip flops. :)
