Give Me a Ring (or 10)

I mentioned yesterday that I am compiling my spring wish-list and the Balenciaga rings below neared the top. But after seeing the above picture in February Vogue, I realized that I am already half way there (1 Trinity, a signet and numerous stacked simple gold bands). I also prefer the mix of styles and placement.

  • The stacked rings remind me of those glamorous photos of Alana & George Hamilton sunbathing in Capri, Italy in the early 1970’s.
    I couldn’t find the really iconic close-up photo, but here is a smaller one:

  • They look great for a photo shoot or for lunch – but honestly, how do you get any work done with all those rings on – too cumbersome

  • I agree, they look great for a photo shoot, but I think I’d feel claustrophobic wearing all those rings. I like the cuff in the top photo, substantial, yet open. Very cool.

  • Love the stacked bands, but only on one finger (preferably middle). I also love a particular one in Saint Laurent’s new collection, but sadly can’t find my size anywhere.

  • I’m with Lisa E…..beautiful in photos but all that jewelry would wear me down…am a “less is more” gal….kudos to those who can pull it off!

  • I don’t have the finger length to carry this off. I also agree it’s a bit too much for me to take on on a daily basis. I wear a wedding band only, and get clautrophobia if it doesn’t come off easily. I would like to get a single ring to wear occasionally though and think I may move it up on the priority scale. Rings do make a nice statement and your whole outfit doesn’t have to revolve around it.

  • Stacked rings have always been a favorite look to me, especially really thin pave diamond bands on my thumbs.

  • I’m also with Lisa E and a few others, maybe I could go for this look for a night out but I couldn’t wear multiple stacks all day long. I keep my stacks to 2 or 3 at most and have found some terrific ones at Julie Collection (now called Julie Vos). The silver stacking rings are the best!

  • Your post of the new Repossi campaign made me consider adding the Berbere ring in rose gold to my spring list. I agree that a mix of styles is much more interesting.

  • Sometimes too much of a good thing is…well, just too much.

  • I’ve started wearing my stack rings again – and I saw a photo the other day of someone wearing one on each finger which looked good & is more practical, no?

  • Rings are lovely. Here though seen en masse takes away the beauty and the style….
    If I walked around with rings on every finger I think I’d joined the circus or taken a step into crass style… Sorry!
    One finger of stacked rings is of course very beautiful dependant on the rings involved of course!! They were all the rage in London in the 80’s!
