Can’t get enough woven goodness? Here’s a ring for the Bottega Veneta obsessed (guilty!). Yes, my love for their iconic – and addictive – intrecciato weave spills over past bags into shoes, belts, and yes, jewels. Nobody ever said it had to come in the form of buttery leather. Somehow, it can be just as yummy in oxidized sterling silver. (Although it is hard to top their big, frayed hobos)
Now $450 for a silver ring might not initially sound like much of a bargain, but if you take Bottega’s sky-high bag and shoe prices into consideration, this is something you can wear daily for way less (and you don’t have to fret about wear and tear). Yes, my mind often plays these irrational tricks to justify purchases, but this is actually a good investment and it’s been proven to be a timeless look. Bold cocktail rings are lots of fun but they are equally fleeting; this chunky yet sleek piece will endure. Let it stand alone for a classic look or mix it up with other rings – intrecciato weave makes a statement without shouting loudly, no matter what form it comes in. On Net-a-Porter for $450.
Pair with: Shake it up and go moderately eclectic with Iosselliani‘s three-in-one ring, a sterling silver and gold-plated layered look of crystals and a studded stone. At Barneys New York for $195.
