It’s funny how trends come around – a year ago, I was very much anti rings, thinking that they made my stubby fingers look, well, even stubbier. Now, however, stubbiness be damned: all I want are legions of rings to stack up and down each stubby little digit. The problem is, where to find these rings . . . ? I’ve been scouring my local high street stores, and while A|Wear and Topshop both have reasonable selections, I have an immense fear of that dreaded green-finger syndrome, and €15 seems too much to spend on a ring that is made out of discarded Coke cans, or old tin whistles.

So it’s little wonder that these rings, by Daisy Jewellery, are now top of my wishlist.

Look at how gloriously stackable they are! And here’s another thing: gold and silver! TOGETHER! It breaks all the rules but, like shorts and tights, these are rules that are, these days, meant to be broken. Isn’t it glorious that fashion rules are going out the window, as an aside? I am currently wearing navy and black. TOGETHER. Wow, I know, I’m so subversive.

Now, only in my dreams do I have fingers this long, but wouldn’t that make a beautiful photograph of your dressing table? The bad news is, of course, that these rings don’t come all that cheap – individual rings range from €30 to €95, and stacking sets from €80 to €240. Stockists, from May, will include Arnotts, Clery’s and A Hartmann & Son in Galway. Call 01-6774626 for more stockists.
