LUST: Shop Dixi Stackable Rings Picks

February 1, 2014

dixi-ring-collection-ss14If you have a little scroll-y on down, you’ll spot my first ring ‘LUST’ post: Accessorize. Dixi is a bit like Accessorize’s grungy older sister, and she’s a tad more expensive too. However, when I’m feeling flush, I will definitely be treating myself, painstakingly one-by-one, to these gorgeous pieces to add to my budding stackable ring collection. There is nothing better than disguising stubby fingers with a slick of grey/black/burgundy nail varnish and some distractingly purrrdy rings.

Moonstone Poison Box Ring – £32 | My Little Moon Ring – £26

LUST: Accessorize Sterling Silver Ring Picks

This year, rings became my super-duper, #1 jewellery priority, after spending pretty much the entirety of 2013 lusting over perfectly decorated hands following the 90s goth trend. Now, I’ve already started my mission to collect a number of stackable and mix-‘n’-match-y rings – you can find that post here. However, after buying a moonstone sterling silver ring from last season’s collection, and watching as the other cheaper ones discolour around it, whilst it remains shiny and new – it’s got me hooked on buying more. I mean, if I’m going to be wearing them everyday: they should be of good quality, right? These are my favourite picks of the current season:

Sterling Silver 3x Bands Ring Set – £12 | Sterling Silver Sirocco Mop Ring £12

Sterling Silver Mandarin Turquoise Ring £12 | Sterling Silver x2 Ethnic Midi Rings £10

Rings, Rings, Rings and Things.

(Excuse the paleness of this shot – I’m not sure whether this is the design, or urr, their printer was out of ink?)

For months on end now, I’ve been eyeing up rings all over the show – in a desperate (and arguably vain) attempt to create a little collection to disguise the absolute trotters I have for hands. I started this collection last week when I picked up a gorgeous pearlescent in the Accessorize sale, and recently I was sent the following pieces by kitschy jewellery brand Kukee. Needless to say, my hands are going to look like this religiously now – even if I do look a little like I’ve escaped from a cult (wearing a pentagram choker doesn’t help, either).

For the price, these are brilliant little additions to anyone’s ring collection. The seal at the back of the spiral-look rings is a little shoddily finished, but that goes to the back anyway and is barely noticeable. Considering all I usually do is whinge about items I’m sent – I’d actually recommend Kukee’s products for cheap and easy way to round-up some stackables.
