This has to be my favourite revival/collaboration/exclusive collection project of all time. When I first saw a Solange Azagury-Partridge original Hot Lips ring I had no idea it was the original pop chic piece that has inspired many jewellers and other pieces since its launch in 1995. Then on a trip to the V&A I saw one on display and all the dots joined up. Since seeing this gorgeous ring on that trip I have coveted one, so it was the best new ever when Amazon announced that they were working with Solange to revive the collection exclusively for amazon. Not only was this collection a revival it's also at a surprising price tag. I'm talking pay day treat friendly at £69.00. Yes the zeros are in the correct place. I've only ever seen second hand hot lips rings for £599 so £69 is an absolute bargain for an iconic piece of jewellery. These rings are made of sterling silver with a lacquer finish.
The only trouble I'm having is choosing which colour I would like. Classic red is the classic one and the most recognisable of them all. However I absolutely love the colour orange and orange jewellery has always been a big gap in my jewellery box due to the lack of stylish orange coloured pieces available. Sadly orange gemstones don't float my boat but I have a handbag that is pretty much this shade of orange. The pink is very cute but perhaps a bit too sugary for my taste. I do really like the nude lips but again not as much as I like the orange or red. Cherry black and purple are the best way to wear dark lips as I have never been able to pull off dark lips stick not matter how much I want too. So for me personally I do think it's a tough decision between red or orange. (Maybe I'll get both over a a few treat days and solve all my trivial problems.)

Below are the ones still shown on Solange Azagury-Partridge's website. I have to say out of all the below styles the gold lips is my favorite and is sadly not included in the Solange Azagury-Partridge x Amazon collection. The pave set ones are another design that has not made it's way to the Amazon revival collaboration.
