I've adored big rings for as long as I can remember. My grandma would give me fabulous pieces of costume jewelry. And I remember an English teacher commenting on my "gaudy" rings back in high school. The obsession has only grown in recent years... I LOVE wearing a ring on every finger. Grandma's passed-down costume jewelry, antique store treasures, thrift shop finds.
Hey Hey Haleigh and I found a bunch of rings in all their vintage, gaudy glory at a local shop called Tangerine Zebra. Of course, I had to try them all on for her to snap a pic! And you can also bet I didn't get out of the store without buying one. (I bought the big jade one on my middle finger.)
And I found these three beauties (and that cute little watch) at a hometown antique store over Thanksgiving weekend. They were cheap treasures, too, for just a few bucks a piece---gotta love a bargain!
Rings are my favorite accessory. The only problem is that I've accrued such a collection that I don't have enough fingers to display them all on a daily basis!
...And I'm not the only one!
One of my favorite ladies and admired style icons, Florence Welch shows hers off (along with a birdcage tattoo) above.
Too much? Never! I love the gypsy look!
What's your favorite accessory? And do you prefer one key piece that gets all the attention? ...Or do you overload in excess like I do with rings? ;)
