First come my costume rings. I mostly just wear these with historical gowns, but other than being gold, they're awfully gothic, aren't they?

Many of my everyday rings live inside this little gold box, which I've had since I was a young girl. It's a bit tarnished & the red velvet lining is dingy, but it holds fond memories in addition to these rings.
Here are a bunch of silver rings with Celtic & Wiccan themes. Note: In the "hand" photos, rings are not always on their proper fingers, I was just trying to get decent pix!

Some rings with gemstones.

These are a few of my most sentimental rings...

Faux diamonds are a girls best friend! I also wear these with my 18th-century costumes.
A pretty silver ring, a gift from Kendra, bought in France.
Sparkly black cocktail ring.
Funky mod black roses ring.
An even bigger faux diamond.
And a cool black glass ring.
Finally, but not least, there's my wedding band & engagement rings, which I wear every day. At night, I keep them in a box I covered with a scrap of the contrast fabric from my wedding gown & inside is a little pillow made of the burgundy velvet that was the main fabric of my gown.
My wedding ring is a mix of yellow & white gold with diamond chips. My husband's band is very similar (just without the diamond bits).
My husband & I have matching engagement rings in silver with amethyst cabochon stones. We bought them at The Great Frog on Carnaby Street in London.
And that's pretty much every ring I own! What about you? Do you like rings? If so, I hope to see your posts on the theme.
