Accessorize: Statement Rings Under $100


I have a strong point of view about jewelry. I will spend on an investment, or happily accept a piece that I can pass down to my girls, or I spend as little as possible. I can’t imagine spending $200 -$300 plus on an accessory that isn’t real and won’t last. Something about it has to be special for me to consider spending any real money on it.

Cocktail rings are an overlooked option on your jewelry tray. They can be big, bold and appropriate for the daytime. I like them instead of a stack of bracelets – since I find myself taking them off well before lunch. We rounded up some of our favorites that are also office-appropriate. Don’t be surprised if you get stopped in the hall with questions about these beautiful pieces. That’s part of the fun. We rounded up some of our favorites all well under $100.

Kendra Scott is a go-to designer for us when we are looking for sophisticated style without a significant price tag. This gorgeous bold ring is a nice option for smaller hands.

You could wear this alone or stack it with other rings.

Love, love, love this modern yet elegant option.

Another option from Rebecca Minkoff at an amazing price.

Panacea Golden Rectangular RingPanacea Golden Rectangular Ring, $26.25

Last Call Neiman Marcus is the best of the high end department store outlets, especially its shoe, bag and accessory department.  The oversized ring with large black stone is bold and beautiful.

Kate Spade Little Ladybug Caining RingKate Spade New York Little Lady Bug Caining Ring, $78

This ring is substantial without being aggressive. It sits flush on the finger, so you get the benefit of a band ring with the style impact of a cocktail ring.

Pixie Gray Jewel Cocktail RingGilt Jewel Cocktail Ring,  $25

Gilt is another great option for discounted costume jewelry. Not only can you find some of your favorite designers but they also “private label” pieces, providing you with even more value. I wouldn’t save this ring for a night out. I would wear it with a sleek black suit and let it speak for itself.
