I'm partial to chunky jewelry {as shown here}, but lately I'm drawn to these simple, skinny bands - stacked and worn on multiple fingers. I tried a few thin gold rings at the Artists and Fleas when we were in NYC, but walked away without any... and so wish I hadn't left empty handed {no pun intended}. 

I also love it when I seen these thin bands worn as first knuckle rings {also known as memory rings or tea rings}. I would love to try this, but I'm a bit worried the first time I wash my hands - the ring will go right down the drain. If I take the plunge, I'll let you know how long I have it before I lose it!

There are a lot of options available for these rings right now. Catbird in NYC has a great selection; although, some of them are a bit pricey. Etsy is always a wonderful place to support independent artists and get a good deal all at once; It is where I plan on making any future purchases of this sort.
