THE STATEMENT RING
Looking for the perfect gift or an excuse to treat yourself this Christmas? Tatler’s Charlie Boyd has picked out this winged ring as the perfect final outfit flourish
Wing motifs have inspired jewellers for centuries, from the lofty heights of fine jewellery workshops tucked away in the attics of Place Vendôme in Paris to modern British designers who have created cult, signature pieces using experimental wing emblems. That's the really useful thing about this beautifully shaped piece – you can use it to elegantly accessorise a classic evening dress, or toughen it up with leather trousers and an aviator coat and suddenly those delicate little wings whisper of Hells Angels and wild times. This ring is the sort that will wander between the jewellery boxes of mums, sisters and daughters, and each will be keen to wear it in their own way.
