As a lover of rings, I was thinking it was high time I updated my collection to include some wintery rings for the holiday season. Of course, as a fashion fan I enjoy all types of jewelry, but if I had to pick a favorite piece, it would have to be the humble ring. I've always been a fan of rings because in comparison to other jewelry, they are usually very light weight and don't restrict your movement. Rings can be so incredibly varied in design too, so you can wear different styles to suit your moods or to fit an occasion; for instance you can sport novelty rings when you're feeling frivolous or elegant rings when you have a fancy event to attend.
After seeing the recent Cartier Diamonds advert, which stars an ethereal Karen Elson dashing around a glittering Paris and constantly admiring her ring, I was inspired to expand my own collection. Now I'm definitely not a gal who can afford to shop at the likes of Cartier, so I knew I'd need to get creative and search amongst my favorite high street stores. After discovering the news about Welsh jewelry label Clogau's Snow Queen Christmas collection, I was inspired to seek winter themed rings to add a unique twist to my holiday ensembles, because snow queen fashions are having a moment in the spotlight.
So here's an array of wintery rings of all different styles to accompany you through the festive season.
