I've been collecting big and funky rings since high school---essentially 10 years. I find them in thrift stores, garage sales, boutiques, and many have been gifts. Old and new, I love them. This is my latest find from Pylones, one of my favorite stores on the planet. I have four Pylones rings now and I adore them because they are fun and cost friendly-my kind of style. I think the collection of rings started because I wore a lot of vintage clothing from the thrift store. With a love for jewelry, I was always picking up chunky bracelets or dinner rings. The rings stuck and after all these years I have quite a stash. I think Carrot Box's "before and after" is the best illustration of why I think big rings are so cool. Check it out here. Every time I see her photos, I think, "exactly!" Check out her fabulous collection too!
