Coco Chanel, first introduced costume jewelry into her collections in the 1920s as a way of combining the brashness of mass-production with the originality of art and design. Madame Chanel also added in costume jewels to as a measure of completing the ensemble, in an perfect blend of high-low style, that we're sure would even make Kate Moss green with envy. In times like these, we often find that turn to this type of mixing-and-matching which turns frugality from a four letter word into the most fashionable definition in the dictionary.
So, we've selected a few of our favorite cocktail rings as the pieces to post for your viewing pleasure. Nothing adds decadence to an outfit like a gigantic ring--preferably one that is crafted with architecural metallic elements accented with oranic stones and shapes, kind of like Moby Dick meets The Fountainhead. Besides, we like anything that's meant to be worn with a whiskey sour in tow.
