Hello, Ladies,

As many of you know, I LOVE accessories. So much so that this month's column (opens in new tab) is all about my favorite baubles. For the most part, I can shop just about anywhere for jewels (a bright spot in the plus-size fashionista's shopping regimen!), but it can be particularly difficult to find rings. That's why I went searching for as many as I could find for this month's column—I ended up with so many that not all of them could fit on the page! Let's go through a few more amazing pieces here.

I know I've mentioned HSN.com (opens in new tab), and I'll do it again. The rings are gorgeous, and many options are available in up to a ring size 12. Plus, you can shop by ring size, which means no more disappointment when you click on a ring you love only to find out it doesn't go past a size 8. I love this set of three Opaque Gemstone Rings from Technibond (opens in new tab). Wear them individually or stack them together—either way they're a perfect accent to any outfit. Another great set of stackables is the Grayce by Molly Sims "Modern" Stack Ring Set (opens in new tab). Sheila Fajl, the fantastic jewelry designer I mentioned in my column, has a chic and affordable line: Glow by Sheila Fajl. Check out her Turquoise-Color Stone Ring (opens in new tab), one of my favorites.

Another great place to shop for roomier rings is where you find roomier clothing. Think plus-size destinations such as Avenue, Lane Bryant, and One Stop Plus. The Onyx 14k Gold-Plated Ring (opens in new tab) from Onestopplus.com (opens in new tab) is a great statement ring. For a touch of silver, consider the Hammered-Look Ring (opens in new tab). Lane Bryant has multiple stretch rings, sure to fit just about any finger. For one with a purple accent try the Faceted Stone Stretch Ring (opens in new tab) on for size.

So tell me, ladies, where do you find great rings? Any favorite brands? Let me know so I can pass it along!
