Big, funky rings, which are red hot right now, combine a lavish Hollywood elegance reminiscent of the Twenties and Thirties with a modern bohemian sensibility. Some call it “haute hippie.” Accessories trend consultant Patty Wu, who lives in jeans and simple tops, loves funky rings because wearing them allows her to infuse some fashion and pizzazz into her look without changing her basic style.
Rachel Leigh, known for her eclectic fashion sensibilities, combines the delicacy of open wiring with chunky, earth-toned baubles. We love the combination of jade, freshwater pearl and Swarovski pearl.
Is this precious, or what? Crafted by Japanese designer Nakamon, this ring is made of amber and jade, hand-wired into a flower motif on an adjustable band. Because the stones are natural, each one is slightly different in size, just like in nature, which lends a wonderful asymmetry to the piece.
