Take 10 ~ Butler & Wilson at QVC

Should I wear it? Should I use it as an ornament? Or should it be in a museum? When asked to choose a ring from the very bling-tastic Butler & Wilson range at QVC for this month's Take10 challenge, I was a little undecided. I'm not really one for large glitzy cocktail rings but ended up heading in the complete opposite direction and chose something totally wild... this huge owl ring, accessorised with some favourite women's designer shoes.

Beautiful ring, I have a thing for big sparkly animal rings so definitely a good choice I'm slightly envious of it xoxo

I love it. I am a massive fan of big rings.

ALso, have you cut your hair? It looks amazing. I wish I could get my fringe to look so perfect.

Elizabeth - yes, chopped about 5 inches off a few months ago & had had a couple more inches cut before these pics. Fringe a bit too short here for my liking but it has since grown :-)

Cute! You've styled it really well :)
I saw a market stall in Rome that had hundreds of sparkly animal rings. I bought my sister a turtle one but was too overwhelmed to choose one for myself.

I really like it, although I'm not usually into this kind of thing - and you look great, even though it doesn't seem very 'you'. I love it with that nail varnish!
