One ring to rule them all

I first went mad for ‘big rings’ when I spotted a huge, carved silver ring on one of my aunts. I was fascinated by its sheer size, how it made such a statement and looked so tough. The obsession began with plastic rings, some of which I still wear, and graduated to resins and stones. I always hunt for a new ring if I visit a place I have never been before. It stands as a permanent reminder of that trip, whether it’s New York or Newquay. They have become part of my ‘look’ and I feel naked without them. They went unworn for a little while when my boys were still in nappies, taking them on and off constantly was a pain. Now I keep them all out, usually downstairs, so they can be the last thing I shove on before heading out in the morning.
