Boca Bonita Ring in Purple
The Boca Bonita Ring features a beautiful, heart-shaped amethyst set in 18ct yellow gold and smooth, dome-shaped, vintage lucite band.
First manufactured in the 1930s as a protective coating for glass, the acrylic plastic that we now call lucite became a wildly popular material for costume jewellery in mind-century America. Here, we have taken a vintage band from the 1950s and embellished it with a striking gemstone to create a mesmerising ring, perfect for any sweetheart, American or not.
In our opinion, the Boca Bonita Ring is best worn on the hand on its own, with no competition from other rings. It looks great by day or by night, and being colourful and bold, it elevates any outfit, regardless of whether there is other jewellery on board or not.
The Boca Bonita Ring hails from our Plastic Fantastic jewellery collection, which is set in steamy Florida. This collection is a story about sunshine, penguin waiters, sweetheart-necklines, jell-o and – of course – candy pastel colours. Jewellery editor Jill Newman wrote of the Plastic Fantastic collection: “Tessa Packard’s new collection delivers a dose of colour and whimsy – which is needed right now…saturated, technicolour vintage lucite is paired with bright coloured stones in playful pieces that exude the tropic – polka dots, flowers and candy stripes…I’m ready for spring break and the pool!”.
