There’s been a lot of focus on rings lately, particularly the sapphire-blue royal-engagement variety. But this season, the finger-length ring is an equally buzz-worthy style that’s just as much of a showstopper. “I never take mine off!” professes Vogue stylist Tabitha Simmons of jewelry designer Gaia Repossi’s Burnt by the Flame twin ring (pictured above in the December issue of Vogue). “I love it because it livens up any outfit. I wear it both casually and for evening,” Simmons says. Repossi’s ring debuted as a collaboration with Alexander Wang on his fall/winter 2010 runway, and now it’s experiencing a bit of a hot streak. Repossi reinforced Simmons’s sentiments about the ring’s 24/7 wearability and chameleon-like quality, adding: “It elongates the hand, creating a beautiful silhouette.”
Come February, this ring will be available at alexanderwang.com, but for now you can find it (including another more graphic version that Repossi designed with Joseph Altuzarra) at colette.fr, the online Parisian emporium of chic. Not convinced? BCBG has an equally covetable version for a fraction of the price, so you can test-drive the look before fully committing. $118; bcbg.com.
