In the past half dozen years, the statement bag’s been replaced by the statement shoe. Then came the statement necklace, with a brief hiatus into super stacked bangles. Now it’s all about the statement ring. And it’s not just oversized cocktail baubles. Either pile on the finger candy, or look for extra special ones spanning the knuckles or a couple fingers.
Thai American designer Thakoon Panichgul teamed up with Japanese fine jeweler Tasaki for some fabulous statement rings I’m lusting after.
Of course, I’ll have to fly to Tokyo to get them (and win the lottery while I’m at it), but I can lust nonetheless. The Thakoon for Tasaki rings will be available in April at Tasaki’s Ginza store, and prices start at $5,500.
Another gorgeous statement ring is by European brand Tous.
Fabulously architectural, so minimal and yet so glam. Get both here.
If you’re looking for a more affordable alternative, I’m a sucker for this double finger ring by Skinny. You don’t know how many people have complimented me on this ring. On your fingers, it just looks like floating jewels. And at $30, you can afford to double up.
Of course, stacking rings are still hot, and while I prefer to stack mismatched rings, these will give you a quick and easy way to achieve the look.
Thai designer Matina Amanita has a whole collection of to-die-for rings you’re going to want to check out. Check it out in Audrey‘s Spring 2010 issue, or here. Amanita’s “Heartbeat” rings, sold individually, offers varying lengths of “beating” hearts, so you can customize and stack to your heart’s desire.
Or make it easy on yourself. Tina Tang‘s multi-band ring looks like mismatched stack rings, but it’s actually one giant ring.
For one loud statement piece, go with Lisa Paik’s clustered, jumbled ring, like a raw ore of crystals and gilt earth.
Don’t let the over-the-top glam look fool you. You can’t afford not to adorn your fingers with this ring. Buy Lisa Paik’s “Versaille” ring and other statement rings now at AudreyShops!
