Foulard de la semaine
Scarf rings can be a great way to get some different looks from your scarves, and to keep scarves in place.
The "chain d'ancre" ring is from Hermès, and is hand carved from horn. This is my most frequently used scarf ring. The horn material is very light, and unlike metal versions that sometimes tend to slide down from their own weight, this one stays put, even on smaller "vintage" sized scarves (27 in/70 cm square). And the neutral color seems to go with every scarf I own! Mai Tai is offering a version of the chain d'ancre in several colors and sizes, and for less than the Hermès version. You can find here: Scarf Rings by Mai Tai. While you're there, check out some of gorgeous ways she styles her Hermès pieces!
The other simple gold scarf ring is a one I purchased at least two decades ago. (Can't believe I still have it!) I often get asked if it's Gucci (horse bit design) but no. But you don't need a special scarf ring; any large sized band ring will work, as long as there are no rough edges to snag your scarves.
That last style, BTW, looks great under a coat or jacket.
