The current economic climate is dictating we should be aiming for pared-back, minimalistic style. But when it comes to jewellery - and rings especially - no one can tell us to refrain from choosing the biggest, blingin' styles imaginable!

This turquoise cocktail ring by Roberto Cavalli is my dream ring is almost every sense... turquoise has this strange effect on me for some unknown reason and I am always drawn to it. I love the crystal embellishments and casing around the stone, but too bad it's in silver as I'm a gold girl through and through. It's £180 from Net-a-Porter.
