PS. I only just realised after I titled this post that I had already titled a post in the past with this Bob Dylan lyric! Oh well...it is one of my favourite ever lyrics and it was either that or..um..'put a ring on it'..which really..even I, with a very lame sense of humour, couldn't bring myself to do..
Not finished exams yet..just got a bit bored while trying to study the Haughey years..

she wears an egyptian ring that sparkles before she speaks
One look I've loved probably my whole life: multiple rings..cos like..you know, I'm all hippy and stuff.
Really though I love rings. I have a weird thing about hands..without making that sound like a scary fetish..I just tend to look at them. I love when people wear interesting rings. I wonder where they came from..a cool vintage shop in London? an heirloom? from a lover? a designer piece bought as a birthday present to self? There always tends to be some sort of mildly interesting story behind a ring. Unlike with earrings and necklaces, ownership of an unusual ring is much more frequent. In my opinion, the intimate poise of rings on fingers means that they are the most personal piece of jewellery and therefore, demand individuality of design.
And I know it's a trendy thing to do, but I don't think I'm about to tire anytime soon of the 'piled on' ring look.
