When people question how to make a bold statement with jewellery, necklaces and oversized earrings often come to mind. And while these do a great job of making a statement, they aren’t the only options. Rings offer a way for people to show their style while participating in current fashion trends. There’s no question that rings are incredibly versatile. With that said, all too often, rings get underestimated and viewed as a basic staple piece, but that doesn’t have to be the case.

If you’re ready to make a bold fashion statement and want some tips on how to use rings to meet your style needs, we’ve got some essential tips for you.

Variety Is the Spice of Life – Stop Wearing the Same Rings Daily

Sure, there are some rings you wear daily, such as an engagement ring or wedding band, but then there are those that don’t necessarily have a daily purpose. Think of these as “fashion rings, ” meaning you shouldn’t wear the same ones daily.

You can completely change up your look simply by removing or adding rings. Try pairing different rings together, experiment with stacking rings, and step outside your comfort zone. Remember, variety is the spice of life.

Don’t Over-Do It – Limit How Many Rings You Wear

Did you know that wearing too many rings at once can also have the opposite effect on what you’re trying to achieve? If you’ve got a bunch of rings on, it’s almost impossible for just one of them to make a statement. It could be that your jewellery is just too busy. Try the less is more approach and choose one ring per hand. If that’s not enough to make a statement, add one more.

Gemstones Help to Make Rings Pop

Another way to make a fashion statement with your rings is to invest in those with gemstones. Gemstones do a great job of capturing and reflecting light, which makes them more noticeable. You can also play around with different colour combinations, some of which are very saturated.

Some of the best gemstones to look for in rings include:

  • Emerald
  • Ruby
  • Garnet
  • Sapphire
  • Morganite
  • Onyx

You can see how each would set a different tone with your outfit. To make it a true statement ring, look for a solo gemstone so that it gets to be the star of the show. Oversized gemstones do an even better job of making a statement. If that seems too flashy for your style, opt for smaller gemstones flanked with diamonds or other stones to help create interest and sparkle.

Choose Different Metals for the Band

And it’s not just the gemstones that pop; you can also play around with the metal band. Traditional ring bands, made of yellow and white gold, are both trendy and stylish. This is a good opportunity to choose one you don’t typically wear. The colour of the metal will look different against your skin tone, so try one that creates more contrast.

Look at rose gold bands for something more elegant and stylish. Their understated soft rose colour looks great with gemstones such as pink diamonds, traditional diamonds, and even citrine.
