I guess it actually pays to be the most hated band in the world.
Above, we’ve gathered several items that weigh about as much as the stone in Avril’s ring. I hope she’s been doing finger exercises…

At first glance, this piece of jewelry looks like a necklace with the multiple hanging layered chains. But take a closer look and you’ll realize it’s a two-fingered ring, which expands to fit any size, and decorates not only your fingers but your whole hand. We’re loving that it’s totally on trend with the chain look, and the fact that you can convert it to wrap around your wrist means that it does double duty. Two new pieces of jewelry in one! If nothing else, it’s a great bar conversation starter. [$109, Stanton James] Keep reading »

Statement pieces don’t have to be big or flashy. Take this super simple ring by Verameat with a thin band and small flower that’s sure to garner compliments. Wear it alone for a dainty look, or layer it with other rings for a funkier style. If you’re buying for yourself, choose the design in copper. For gifts, consider a classier metal, like silver or 14-karat gold. Just looking at it makes us think that everything’s coming up roses. [$48, Verameat.com] Keep reading »
Kate Moss is already breaking the status quo by being an in-demand model at 34, but now she’s even upped the independent woman anty by buying her own engagement ring. Kate’s main man, fiancé, Jamie Hince, is half of the indie rock band The Kills. But compared to Moss, anyone’s success would be modest — unlike the almost $200,000 bauble she just got herself. The sexy supermodel purchased a platinum ring in the shape of an ankh, the Egyptian symbol for life. The hot couple has been together since last August, got engaged a couple weeks ago in a pub in Amsterdam, and plans to marry this summer. Hopefully, the new engagement ring will stay on her finger alone because her last fiancé, Pete Doherty, had to have it hacked off his hand. [ Daily Telegraph ] Keep reading »
