Joint Knuckle Rings.
Noooo out fit is complete without jewelry......FACT!
Having said that I don't know any girl or woman who doesn't love them, myself included.
I like everything, u name it, I want it.
Joint Knuckle rings sounds painful or the kind of rings Boxer's wear to protect their fingers b4 they go into the ring for a fight. But these rings are beautiful and I must say very different from whatever I have seen out there in a while + they are very comfortable & bend with your finger. This is good news, yes?
It all started last year summer when I went back to Los Angeles to visit my friends & generally have a good time.
I went to one of my favorite stores BCBG MAXAZIRA! There never is a time when I go into that store without leaving with a purchase. Right there as I was paying for an amazing metal mesh bag ....I saw in a glass display a strange but beautiful piece of jewelry that looked like a ring but wasn't sure.
So I asked the sales girl what that was and she said "Oh! those just came in, they're called Joint rings, u have long fingers, u should try one on?" ....How could I say no!
And BAAAAAAAAAAM! I was in love for about the 17th time that day.
The Rhinestone Pave Joint Ring...........It just decorated my whole finger.

All of a sudden I felt like getting manicure & I only feel like that when I wear diamonds,
....................REAL diamonds mind u.
A few weeks later I saw them on Hiedi Klum!
Love, love, love Heidi by the way.
Then I saw them on Victoria Beckham.....
Also a lovable Diva, we worked 2gether on Ugly Betty, when she had a cameo..Fierce!
..........and then on Kate Olsen (of the Olsen twins).
This really peeked my interest b'cos anything rare HAS to have come from somewhere, this is NOT production honey.
And so I discovered that the originator of these beautiful pieces was no other than LA based
jewelry designer LOREE RODKIN. Known 4 making some of theeeeeeee most beautiful encrusted jewelry with a Super-Duper GOTH edge. She's guilty (& happily so) of starting the whole ARMOR knuckle phenomenon.
She was also commissioned by 1st Lady, Michelle Obama to make her inaugural jewelry. Wowoweee.
