The Knots have Landed.


An exciting jewelry trend for 2009 is knotted jewelry. Of course I am predicting a lot of nylon knotted necklaces found in stores like Claire's Accessories and Forever 21. But what about on the fine jewelry end of things? I've found some great rings that display this up-and-coming trend that will be treasured for years to come. Check them out below!


This ring, rightfully called the Luck Knot ring, is done in 18k yellow gold and looks great on. Designed by Barens & Belle and sells for $850 on CatBird.


Also done by Barens & Belle is the Large Ball Knot ring, seen here. It is 18k yellow gold with a classic knot front and center. This one is also available through Catbird and is $750.


This hammered knot ring is vintage, from Benchmark of Palm Beach. The estate jewelry hunters of this company have some great pieces, including these two knot rings. This one is actually a size 3 1/2 and is 18k yellow gold. Price: $1500


Here we have an interlocking knot style ring, done in 14k yellow gold. This one goes for $800 from Benchmark of Palm Beach.
