Cute n' Chic Vintage Inspired Critter Rings

How many of you remember seeing your grandma or even your mom wearing some type of animal inspired jewelry back in the 50's & 60's?  Brooches, pendants and rings were mostly some sort of critter crafted from pearls, crystals, polished rocks and precious stones.

As of recent, some artisans have been taking these retro vintage pieces and re-purposing them into new vintage/modern styles. 

Fashion designer, Betsey Johnson came out with a cute non vintage, modernistic approach on the critters trend with her mostly stretch ring band, retro pop culture'ish assortment of pigs, monkeys & elephants!

What an absolute conversation piece as well as an adorable way to show off your personal 'love' for a favorite animal!

The leopard rings reminds me of vintage cartier rings.
