Jewellery has never really been my thing (I’m more of a bag lady – the weirder the better!) but this has definitely been something I’ve been trying to work on this year. Slowly but surely my turquoise deer-shaped jewellery box has been filling up, and I’ve noticed that I seem to have an extreme penchant for rings. And much like my bag collection – I like ’em with a side of weird.
You will have seen the odd ring here on the blog before, but I wanted to share them all in one go. Because, you know, I’m feeling a bit proud of myself, and all that.. ; )
This heart ring is one of the latest additions to my ring collection. It’s a fairly simple piece, which makes it an absolute essential when it comes to layering. I’m a huge fan of this ring and wear it most days – even to work, which is a big deal for this lady who normally sports bare fingers during the 9-5!
This is probably my most lavish, ridiculous, over-the-top piece of jewellery yet – and I couldn’t possibly love it more. Les Nereides is a jewellery brand I am (quite frankly) obsessed with, and I’m desperately waiting for the summer months, where I can wear it on my favourite beach as I explore the rock pools. Hi little crabby crabs, say hi to your friend!
Fox Ring – Boticca
Basically, this fox ring is what started it all.. I fell in love with it years ago and had to make it my own! I wear it insanely often – and if I’m ever going out at night (which really, isn’t very often!) I make sure to have this baby firmly adorned on my finger as I reckon it would make quite an effective weapon if I ever needed it! In fact, I lovingly refer to it as ‘my punching ring’ – no joke!
Rocking Horse Ring – PBJ Boutique
I bought this ring from the (sadly now closed) PBJ Boutique. And would you believe it only set me back around $12? I picked this up for myself around three or so years ago, and for a cheap ring it is still in fantastic condition, with it’s gold colour still in pristine condition. Hooray! What I really love about this ring is that it functions as a teeny-tiny rocking horse when you put it upright. Because as we all know, things are so much cuter in miniature!
Alice in Wonderland & White Rabbit Ring – Les Nereides
If it’s fairytale based, chances are I’m gonna love it (and even more so when Alice in Wonderland is involved!) These two babes from N2 are no exception. In fact, while you’re here, you should probably just look at everything that N2 makes. Because it’s all amazing. And there is SO MUCH fairytale stuff. It’s the best, man!
Sailboat Ring – Vinca
These guys are a little tricky to capture in photographs, so allow me to explain a bit more. One is a sailboat, another is a wave, and finally – dolphins. And together they combine to create… well, one mighty fine ring set, I suppose (I bet you were totally thinking more along the lines of summoning Captain Planet or something! No. Just no). For a nautical lover (which I totally am) these are basically the best thing ever. Though watch out for the yacht – it’s rather pointy (as my laddered Winter tights will attest to!)
Porcelain Rabbit Ring – And Mary
And finally, my beautiful, beautiful porcelain white rabbit ring. Because, lets keep the Alice theme going and all that! I accidentally got this ring in slightly too big a size, but that doesn’t stop me from sporting it on my middle finger and feeling pretty darn good about it too. Right, now I just need to find a human sized rabbit hole to fall down so I can go on my next adventure..!
