Yes, it’s the night before Valentine’s Day and you’re in mild panic mode. Yes, you already bought the flowers, but it’s not looking as grand as you imagine. And the gift, you seriously gave it as much thought as you could, especially when you barely scraped through with the Christmas one but you’re still coming up short. A ring would be nice, but it couldn’t be just any ring, and the ones you’re already eyeing easily cost 3 grand and up, which is a tad more than you budgeted for.
So what do you do? You head down to Cartier, of course. More specifically, head to the glass counter which holds the Trinity de Cartier rings and point to the 3-gold one that retails for SGD1570. No, you’re not reading it wrong, there is really a ring from Cartierthat costs just that, a Trinity de Cartier, no less, in rose, yellow and white gold.
Actually, it doesn’t even have to cost that much. The rings actually start fromSGD1100 for thinnest bands, followed by the SGD1570 ones (they are both shown above) that I feel are just about right for most fingers of both men and women. They then go up to SGD2170 and SGD3650 respectively for the even thicker ones, but those I feel would be a tad too much for most people.
In other words, head down to Cartier stat tomorrow morning, pick up the SGD1570Trinity de Cartier 3-gold ring because it’s a real deal, get it packaged into Cartier’s beautiful red box and watch her (or him) smile when they open it. You can always thank me later.Louis Vuitton

No, Louis Vutton didn’t just release designer thimbles. These are in fact unisex rings from the Skin collection that is apparently inspired by the architecture of a Palm Springs villa (no, I didn’t make that up). Sold as a set of 3 and available in 4 different designs, you can quite literally wear your love of say, the Monogram Canvas pattern on 3 of your fingers now, and given how they are all sized differently, should fit most of us depending on how thick your digits are.
Besides the ones in Monogram Canvas, you can also get them embossed on calf leather (2nd row), in Malletage (3rd row) or Strass (4th row). Priced at SGD900, SGD995,SGD1200, SGD1210 respectively from top to bottom for each set, I guess you could be Santa and give them as a set to one lucky recipient this Christmas, or Scrooge, and gift 3 different friends one ring each too, right?
