Let’s discuss big rings for a second, shall we? They’re pretty delicious, right? Knuckle-duster gems, elaborate scrollwork and filigree, cameos and bits of bling. They are the sort of attention-getting accessories that even attention-avoiders seek out.
But they’re usually not something we just pop on for a trip to Vons--until now. We’ve discovered the casual-glam Myth rings made by jeweler Kristen Elspeth. Based in Echo Park, Elspeth creates wide bands that are as wearable as they are chic.
In polished sterling, yellow or rose-gold vermeil, the single rings (from $88) are made to be worn at the top knuckle. (We were surprised at how well they stay in place.) Elspeth also designs pairs specially to be worn on the same finger and trios or even sets of four rings (from $440) made to be worn on one hand for a fistful of style.
These sophisticated, sleek rings make us feel stylish even when we’re just throwing on a T-shirt and jeans; you’ll see when you slip one on at Silverlake’s Mohawk General Store or Hollywood’s Lost and Found.
