Trendspotting: Little Rings
Jan 4, 2011
I’ve always admired the bold, fearless way that Miss M layers on her jewelry. While others are removing accessories, Miss M is piling them on with reckless abandon, and it always looks amazing. But while I may admire her fashion sense, I’ve always preferred something a bit more subtle for myself. So when I saw this photo on Garance Dore’s site, I knew that it was the perfect way to add volume without overwhelming my delicate sensibilities.
By mixing these smaller rings, with their intricate designs and delicate shapes, you can effortlessly layer your jewelry. But since not all of us can afford a Dior Oui ring (be still by beating heart), I decided to pull some more affordable options from Etsy. Who says stylish, charming jewelry can only be found in the upper price points?

If I had to choose, I would probably select the signet ring and the antique bird ring and mix these pieces with a set of silver stack rings that I already own. I just love the idea of wearing a handful of simple, tiny rings to create a look that is both interesting and subtle. And since you can find these bands on Etsy or in an expensive jewelry shop, it’s a look that can be achieved in any price point.
