Poptails

The name of the eight new rings by Solange Azagury-Partridge is the contraction of “pop” and “cocktail ring”, this typically American ring from the 1930s that captured the light wonderfully every time a woman brought the champagne glass to her lips. The oversized mounts with stars, flaming hearts and flowers, or even a space station, are covered with lacquer striped in bright and fluro colors.
