What did Amy Poehler wear to the Emmys?

Actress and comedienne Amy Poehler recently split from her husband, fellow comedic actor Will Arnett, so no one was expecting her to be wearing any rings on her left hand. However, the Parks and Recreation frontwoman wore quite the statement piece at the recent 2012 Emmy Awards.

Looking great in a sparkly black Stella McCartney gown, Poehler wore a silver ring set with a large blue, sapphire-looking stone. However, when asked by Ryan Seacrest about the bauble, she explained the origins of the ring and the materials used to craft the seemingly expensive piece, which matched her droplet earrings.

It turns out, the ring was a plastic toy piece taken from one of her two young sons.

"Oh, this is a $2 adjustable ring from my child's toy box. He told me I should wear it, so I listen to him," Poehler admitted to Seacrest, reports The Huffington Post.

Ladies willing to spend a little more on their jewelry without breaking the bank should think about investing in cocktail rings, which are always trendy additions to dresses at galas. Larger styles tend to take the focus off of other pieces, so they are best paired with delicate thin bangles or necklaces without pendants.
