I knew Jennifer of Frippery Vintage would find incredible pieces when she went globetrotting to Italy in search of treasures for her shop, but I didn’t expect her to find the most jaw dropping vintage cocktail ring I’ve ever seen. Two Instagram photos later (here and here), I knew I had to add the gobstopper-size bauble to my collection. It’s everything I love about vintage costume jewelry: brightly colored, oversize, and I won’t see it on someone else. (But if I do spot a lookalike, I’ll know the owner has excellent taste.)
Rhinestone ribbons loop around to create this stunning cocktail ring from Chloe + Isabel. New Year’s Eve is fast approaching (can you believe it?) and your champagne toast will be much more dazzling with this ring atop your finger.
If I could only own one cocktail ring, this would be it. Varying shades of pink create a dazzling display of rhinestones.
Autumn demands a more sophisticated style. Take a break from over-adorned pieces and try a sleek cocktail ring, like this version from Trina Turk.
We’re on our way to Louisville for Memorial Day weekend! I’ve never been to Kentucky and I’m looking forward to quirky roadside attractions, Churchill Downs, mint juleps, Mammoth Cave, the Urban Bourbon Trail and a Hot Brown sandwich.
