Last year, I noticed that one of the trends I was seeing a lot of was the ‘huge ring’ trend. I am a fan. I bought myself a giant Erin Wasson moonstone ring and it was beautiful. After I wore it for a few days, I found myself thinking “I feel like this looks weird on my hand!” I loved it, but it just looked wrong.
I have very skinny fingers. Freakishly skinny. This ring looked giant on my tiny finger, but also, I looked cluttered. I have quite a few tattoos on my arms and jewelry is usually a no-no. It’s just too much going on. So, I put the ring in a box and gave up jewelry for a while. That is, until I went to Brooklyn that July.
I had become pretty obsessed with the Catbird NYC website. All the jewelry looked so delicate and small, but I couldn’t bring myself to order. So, I made it a point to check the store out in Williamsburg while I was there. I picked up the most amazing first knuckle ring, and my love affair with jewelry started all over again. I just needed to find the right piece.
Since then, I haven’t taken this ring off and I have acquired a few more delicate rings to accompany it. The ‘big ring’ trend isn’t for me, however, I do love it. I wish I could pull it off, but I can’t. I guess I’m just meant for more delicate things… or should I say, more delicate rings.
Here are a few of my picks for a delicate and dainty ring collection.
