In the Details

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.)

Bauble of the Week

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.

Bauble of the Week

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.
