Lace + Cocktail Ring = Perfection

By now, you know how much I love gigantic, vintagey cocktail rings. These babies are the perfect mix of old and new. L.A.-based designer Carlee Santarelli uses vintage lace and fabric, and mounts it under a clear cabochon for this cool, magnified effect. Isn't this the perfect piece to add a little interest to an outfit? Plus, each ring is handmade--so you can feel extra-good about supporting an independent designer.

You always find the most amazing cocktail rings (I, too, am slightly obsessed with them).

So glad to be back in town so I can catch up with your blog!
