Rings have always been a sort of friendship symbol for me, and they've also always been among the most demure jewelry pieces I've possessed. For years, the only ring I sported was a tiny diamond eternity band that matched one that both my sister and a cousin had. Last year, two friends and I each bought miniscule gold bands with the smallest spot of a diamond.

So it was a pretty big thing for me when after a trip to a Baltimore boutique earlier this year, I came home with a big disk-shaped number featuring a flat, round agate stone, far wider than the finger I wear it on.

Since then, I've been keeping an eye on bold finger adornments that rival the season's dramatic necklaces and cuff bracelets. When I saw this photo of Sheryl Crow at the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation's Grand Slam event held over the weekend, her ring brought a smile to my face. I mean, that's one knockout of a ring. The knuckleduster is from Bochic and it features rose-cut diamonds.
