the statement ring

by Whitney Williams

Being a fan of minimal, classic looks, I usually steer clear of jewelery trends- especially when of-the-moment necklaces, rings and earrings are mixed together. Don't get me wrong, putting lots of jewelery together can work in some instances (take the bohemian beach look), but in most cases, it seems that if you go with jewelery, you should choose that one piece to accent your look.

Accent

being the operative word.  The statement, a.k.a cocktail, ring look never seems to go out of style with it's ability to make an impact on it's own- sans a necklace or bangle. The new breed of statement rings boasts an XXL shape with odd, unpredictable and quirky ornaments and silhouettes. Plus, it can double as a mad weapon in the streets. You can find large cocktail rings just about anywhere, but for the most unique rings, hit up
