I've been lusting over these since they first came out and didn't even like to wear rings back then. It's actually their fault for me becoming obsessed with statement rings.
From what I can see, this ring definitely became a must-have for celebrities and famous fashion bloggers. At $250 price, they're the only one who can afford it anyway. But don't give up just yet! You can get them for much cheaper, believe me. Well, not the original Yves Saint Laurent ones, but they look pretty much the same. You can get them here from the UK, here from Australia, here from the USA and here from Singapore. Such a bargain!
