The Animal Ringdom

Today, I went to Urban Outfitters (just browsing around, of course), and I had an impulse purchase (which is my weakness). I bought this fantastic alligator ring. I am so obsessed with it. As it turns out, animal rings are extremely popular. They can vary to the ultra-glamourous or the inexpensive. Here are some for you to try out!

Rhinestone Alligator Ring

This is the ring I bought today. It is $24 at Urbanoutfitters.com

Two Finger Snake Ring

This snake ring is so awesome. I might have to get my hands on this one too! It’s a ring for 2 fingers! It is $48 at Rachelroy.com

This elephant head ring is also neat! It is $7.80 at Forever21.com

Rumor Panther Ring

This gold panther ring is very interesting. I love the emerald rhinestones. It is $28 at Shoprumor.com

This beetle ring by Kenneth Jay Lane is creepy but fun at the same time. It is made with Swarovski crystals. It is $115 at Saks.com
