The fashion crowd was swept away with awe when, in his final showing for Balenciaga, Nicolas Ghesquière delivered a beautiful collection, each model styled with curling rings of gold (both thin and thick options) on each of her fingers. Not since Liberace has the hand been so well decorated! But in these times of favoring avant-garde nail art and must-have tech accessories, the fingers beg for a moment of celebration (why should engagement rings get all the fun?). A gold-colored minimalist effect can be achieved by piling on sculptural offerings from Maiyet and TomTom, while slender rings with teensy, tiny, pretty stones from Satomi Kawakita and Catbird look elegant all stacked up on one finger (or two, or three). Should a more all-natural look be preferred, a pink druzy from Melissa Joy Manning or a hunky piece of rock-candy crystal from Givenchy will have people talking. Let your fingers enjoy their moment of jazz-hand glory, for we predict the chandelier earring shall be swinging into fashion any minute now.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
