I love watching the birth of a trend. It's hard to remember when I first spot any given fad, but after it pops up enough, a lightbulb goes off in my head and I think, Hey! I've seen that before! This must be a new thing! Then I'm either disappointed (see: clogs), excited (see: menswear-inspired everything) or initially disappointed, then head-over-heels in love (see again: clogs).
The newest trend I'm digging falls in the accessories realm: knuckle rings! Also known as two- or three-finger rings, these suckers are totally bad-ass. They remind me of a little of a Chinese finger trap in that they're highly uncomfortable, but awesome looking. And when you see one, you can't help but try it on.
Stick 'em up!
Double trend alert! Lethal weapon jewelry. Hot and dangerous.
You wouldn't mess with someone wearing a snake ring, would you?
Bling, baby! Pretty sure I saw Diddy sportin' this one.
That's right — three fingers. Do not attempt to chop vegetables while wearing.
This one's classy. It looks like a tie clip.
Close your eyes — just for a moment — and imagine getting punched in the face with this ring. Gross, right? But it's so cute!
The most feminine of the bunch. It almost looks like a tiny flute.
And there you have it. Knuckle rings are the latest and greatest in hand décor. They run the gamut from pretty and sweet to scary and dangerous. And really; isn't that what we're looking for in all the great trends?
