Spot the Bargain: Bow Rings

Spot the Bargain: Bow Rings

Good things often come wrapped with a bow, which is reason enough to gift yourself with a sweet and stylish bow-tie ring. Opt for real (read: expensive) diamonds or their more humble rhinestone counterparts (the cheap yet cute alternative). Can you guess which is which? Answers below…

[1] Rina Rhinestone Bow Ring, $7.80 – Forever 21
[2] Coach Bow Ring, $98 – Coach
[3] Pave Bow Ring, $42 – Juicy Couture
[4] Bow Ring, $1,500 – Tiffany & Co.

Hmm, i wonder where this trend came from. It's kinda too girly for me, but a few friends would like it.

happy new year, btw :-)

I love bow rings! I bought myself a Nolan Miller one from eBay - it was brand new but at a really great price since I don't think N Miller exists anymore!

Love the Juicy Culture ring because of how the bow drops down. Ka-Cute!

i guessed 1 and 3 .... 1 was pretty obvious and 3 doesn't justify the price by a long shot. it looks cheap and fake and the material they use don't deserve 42 $ price tag

Wow!! Those other ones are pretty expensive for a simple ring. I actually bought a really cute ring from Forever 21 for only $3.

These rings look really expensive and fashionable. I'd like to have one or two:)

So cute! I've had my eye on this super sweet one on Etsy for a while:

I surprised myself by being right. I think it's because high-end jewelers work harder with the lighting on their photography.
