When I was in college, I treated myself to a pretty badass cocktail ring. I still have it and it is something of a celebrity amongst my friends and signifies, to me at least, a lovely time in my life as a carefree kid in college. It’s mildly ostentatious…gemstones of yellow and pink set in silver with diamonds so it’s safe to say that it doesn’t get the chance to see the light of day much. When I stumbled across this beauty, I couldn’t help but think maybe this is the next level of cocktail rings for me. It’s much more understated, a little dark but thoughtful and still gorgeous.
There is a beauty in its simplicity that somehow makes it unusual. Everyone needs a great statement ring, right? And now that I am actually old enough to both wear one of these rings while legally drinking a cocktail, it makes me think that an update, or at least expansion of my collection, may be in order.
So what I’m saying is ‘gimme’.
