DK01 PNKYRNG Collection

The moment I layed eyes on the DK01 PNKYRNG collection, I fell in love. I didn’t know anything about Dina Kamal’s pinky ring collection before stopping by to check them out last Saturday. I had never consciously seen a ring from the collection before, but my mom kept telling me how cool and trendy they were – definitely enough to get me excited. Dina Kamal is both an architect and designer, therefore the rings not only embody unique style and attitude, but a contemporary architectural perspective.

Once Dina started unravelling the bags which held the rings, she began telling us her inspiration behind the collection. A truly intriguing and fascinating concept. One that made my love for the collection grow even more.

The rings are so simple, yet so incredibly unique and elaborate. Different materials, different textures and different designs – each and every ring was so attractive. I wasn’t carrying my camera on that day, but was able to take a few snaps on my iPhone!

Here is what it says on Dina’s website – clearly stating where her inspiration for this collection came from:

“Throughout history, the pinky ring, signet ring, or chevaliere, has implied status, style, and attitude. From the Pharaohs to ancient Rome where royalty and clergy had their pinky rings embossed with symbols and seals, to dandies, and mafia, to the glamorous women of the 1930s who defined their avant-garde attitudes through fashion, to the silver screen icons, movie, jazz, rock, hip-hop and rap stars, the pinky ring is – and always has been – shorthand for distinction, style and attitude. In a contemporary style, and from an architect’s perspective, the DK01 PNKYRNG Collection re-defines the shape of the signet ring and sets a revival for the pinky ring or chevalière.”

When Dina was telling us about the roots and the research and the thought behind the entire collection, I was really drawn in even further.

I also love Katy Perry’s pink diamond encrusted pinky ring – so cool!

    Great ring collection! And I enjoyed learning about the journey of the chevaliere throughout time! Bravo for another great post!

  3. Wow. Such a great, comprehensive post – and so well written!

    You obviously take a lot of time composing these posts, and this one truly made me want some more pinky rings. I have my grandmas old signet ring, and a couple others that I wear more often than any other ring. They’re discreet and comfortable.

    Anyhow, love this post. Great blog, too!
