My (little) ring collection

I have decided to post my collection of cheap rings, you know, the ones from Diva and the likes. I love cheap rings because they add to the outfit and believe it or not they draw in compliments like you wouldn't believe! I get more compliments on some of these rings than I do for my clothes, shoes and makeup! I don't know what it is but there is something about them!
I haven't always been such a ring was really only 2011 that I really got into them. I received a couple of them as gifts and the rest of them I bought either really cheaply at markets or when they were on special at Diva or equip. I wouldn't have paid more than five dollars for any of the rings!

As you can see from the first photo, I am definitely into silver more than I am gold. Of course none of these rings are actually real silver (except for the one with the purple stone) but I don't really mind. The only thing that does really bother me about this cheap jewellery is that they go all gross and discoloured in absolutely no time at all. It's so frustrating! Still, what should I expect when I pay so little. I have to try and stop myself from getting too attached because in no time they are unwearable.

 The yellow ring I can remember getting for fifty cents at a market. I think I have worn it about twice. I wasn't all that sure about it but a couple of people have commented that they quite like it. It looks a little cheap and tacky to me but oh well, it is a very fun and happy piece of jewellery!

A couple of those plain silver rings came together in a set, I think I remember paying five dollars for them. I have worn them a heck of a lot, and now they are all gross. So disappointing.
My most commented on rings
 The rings in the photo to the left are the ones that I receive the most compliments on. The purple one is one that my mother has given to me. I think it has made the rounds with several of the females in my family, and now I have ended up with it. I think it is probably my favourite of the lot, even though it is so simple. The next one along was fifty cents and (very surprisingly) it seems to be very much loved by everyone else who saw it. I was totally shocked, I mean, it's nice but not that nice. The next one is incredibly commented on, more than any of the rings. I am quite fond of this one. And, last but not least, this little five dollar beauty is one of my favourites and everyone elses favourite too!
My favourite rings
The rings to the right are all my favourites. The white one and the striped one are very simple but I think they compliment a lot of my outfits (which are mainly made up of grey, white and black) very well. The leaf ring is one that was kind of love at first sight. As soon as I set eyes on it I had to buy it, especially as it was so cheap!

So, that is my little ring collection. Please note that I am not bragging or anything of the sort, but I really enjoy looking at posts similar to this on other people's blogs. If you don't like this post, please feel free to refrain from reading it.
