On Our Radar: Pinky Rings-------
I’m a jewelry girl—and more than any other pieces, giant, chunky cocktail rings are at the top of my list, the bigger, bolder, and more colorful, the better. But after seeing the glut of them over the past few years, the style doesn’t seem as fresh to me as it used to. I’ll never give them up for good, but now I’m feeling the forgotten pinky ring. It’s an unexpected accessory, and as I’ve been adding more classic and neutral pieces to my wardrobe these last few seasons, I’ve found it adds the kick of surprise I’ve been looking for. Last week, I saw a gorgeous collection of diamond-encrusted pinky rings from the Taiwanese designer Cindy Chao. Those’ll be available in September at Bergdorf Goodman, and they’re to die for. But in the meantime, here are a few favorites in stores now, from Bulgari’s classic coin ring to a chic new way to wear your heart on your sleeve—I mean, pinky.
