Save or Splurge?

I rarely stumble across items that are similar enough to warrant a "Save or Splurge" post, but this morning's e-browsing* inspired one.

I'm normally a proponent of large cocktail rings that make a statement. But I'm tempted to go a more subtle route with one of these latticework rings. The Kate Spade Deco Lace Ring on the left is a little more intricate, made from base metal plated in rose gold, and comes in sizes 6, 7 and 8. The Korcula Laura Ring looks more substantial, comes in either rose or yellow gold, and is available in sizes 4 through 9.

Personally, I'm leaning toward the Korcula version. I like that it's not mass marketed and it's from an independent designer - it makes it feel more special. Which one do you prefer?

*E-Browsing: (verb) to leisurely shop online without the intent to buy. Example: I try to abide by the rule to shop often, but buy rarely - leading to a lot of e-browsing.

  1. Ooh, tough decision. I think I posted about the Korcula before, but I kind of love the double-latticework of the Kate Spade, and it helps that KS is about a 1/3 of the price and comes in an adorable little box. But I know what you mean about supporting independent designers...those pieces do feel more special in the end! Go with the Korcula if you can afford it :)


Thanks for commenting - each one means a lot!
