So this feather ring by KidViskous is pretty awesome. Two fingered rings are all the rage these days anyway but the brand takes it up a notch with a cute feather design. Coming in gold, silver and black, this is a great accessory for all the writers out there. Even though we don’t use that outdated mode of writing anymore, it’s still good to wear as a fashion statement. You feel me?
Btw: is it just me or does it also look like a mustache? Just me? Just me? Ok.
In Audrey Magazine’s Spring issue, we featured the new must-have accessory of the season: the statement ring. And nothing makes a statement louder than Chrissy Cook Designs’ two-finger dome ring.
Created especially for AudreyShops, the 2-finger dome ring comes in raspberry and charcoal, and fits almost any hand. Trust me, I wear two-finger rings all the time and they don’t interfere with work, typing or writing. In fact, two-finger rings are much more comfortable than one giant chunky cocktail ring, and they’re a much better conversation starter when you’re sipping that gimlet at happy hour.
In the past half dozen years, the statement bag’s been replaced by the statement shoe.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.
Why shop at a big, impersonal department store when you can get something really special, made with unique design and skill, and support an independent designer at the same time? Some of our favorite accessory designers offer really unique pieces that also make a statement about you, as the giver. Best of all, they’re all under $200 (many under $100) and you can get all these items online right now!
We love Asian American prolific designing duo Ken Leung and Dana Chin of Ken & Dana Design. (They also have a fine jewelry line BYLU, which we love.) Their “Rights” collection is extra meaningful because it uses landmark U.S. Civil Rights Supreme Court case identifiers as its voice. It doesn’t get any cooler.
The ring above has stamped on it 347 U.S. 483 (1954), the legal citation for the case of Brown v. Board of Education, which desegregated schools in the 1950s. They also offer the legal citations for Romer v. Evans, which protects against discrimination by sexual orientation; Leser v. Garnett, which upheld the 19th Amendment women’s right to vote; and Loving v. Virgina, which legalized interracial marriage. Twenty percent of each sale goes to the Harlem Children’s Zone.
