Pic: The Glamourai
Think Frillseeker fave Freja Beha Erichsen, Zoe Kravitz, A-list bloggers The Glamourai (above, wearing the brand’s First Knuckle Rings), Man Repeller and Rumi Neely, Girls actor Jemima Kirke and Tom Petty’s fabulously don’t-give-a-damn daughter Annakim Violette.
Frillseeker pal, Irish Tatler staff edtitor, and oh-so super-stylish Sarah O’Hegarty snapped at the launch of the G suite a couple of months ago, wearing a couple of slim Catbird rings
It’s all delicate knuckle rings as thin as gold wire, layerable necklaces, tiny charms and idiosyncratic narrative pieces that tell stories and hold memories. In short, lovely altogether.
Bad news: the rings in particular look best on slim, elegant hands with tapered talons that are blessed with long nail beds. Pudgy hands and stumpy digits just don’t wear delicate jewellery quite so well, so I’m probably going to be sticking with my cocktail rings and fat-finger-hiding statement pieces.
Better news: it’s surprisingly not madly pricey. The rings above might be whisper thin but they are solid 14k gold and cost the equivalent of about €34. Not bad for a piece of Catbird, I’d wager. There’s lots more stackable, mix-and-matchable stuff in and around the €50-€60 mark – though you can pay a lot more too, so be warned.
Wonderfully welcome news: Catbird ships here, so stick that on your Christmas list, Frillseekers.
