A power suit says that the wearer is confident, strong-willed, and ready to take on business challenges. A power ring, on the other hand, says that the person wearing it is bold and kooky enough to wear a ring so ridiculously large that it appears as if it might hold magical powers within.
These two have become night-out staples for the fingers on my left hand: rhinestone studded two-finger ring bought online, faux emerald pinky ring from Dorothy’s Costume Boutique.
My love affair with enormous finger adornments all started with this mother-of-pearl and plastic ring I got a while back:

vintage ring from Tokyo
There’s three things I like: 1) picking my nose, 2) large rings made out of un-precious stones, 3) doing #1 while wearing #2.
