You don’t have to go with diamonds or rubies to put some sparkle on your fingers. Stunning costume jewellery rings can still make you feel special. The best part is you don’t have to wait for a prince charming to give it to you.
They may not be as luxurious, but beautiful costume rings can be as loyal and dependable best friends as their finer counterparts. From silver to brass and even unique materials like wood or volcanic rock, there’s an enormous range of styles and price ranges to suit different personalities.
This year, it’s all about bold when it comes to jewellery. If you prefer your style more subdued, leave the trend to just your fingers. Wearing an eye-popping ring can be as bold as wearing a necklace or a pair of earrings. The difference is that you can play peekaboo with a ring—a statement when it’s seen and a mystery when it isn’t.
Wear an even bigger statement ring to match your cocktail dress. It can be a beautiful distraction as you talk with your hands or as you hold a champagne flute or wine glass. Try one with a wild animal form or an insect encrusted with sparkly crystals like rings by Swarovski or Alexis Bittar. You can also wear a chunky transparent ring that has interesting elements embedded within it, or a triple ring of raw stones as seen in Proenza Schouler Fall/Winter 2014-2015.
Don’t be shy to wear it with your casuals or basics. A costume jewellery ring can be as much of a statement with a plain top and pair of jeans as it can be with a more formal look. Pairing your extravagant jewellery with a plain outfit allows it become the focal point of your look.
Just like your necklaces, you can layer up on your rings. Layering gives your fingers a fresh and fantastic look. To make this look modern, choose simple ring styles to stack against each other like Bjorg’s stack of three rings. You can mix colour tones to make an interesting effect.
It is normally a no-no to load up on rings on all of your fingers. However, the coming season permits the use of multi-rings as seen in Moschino and Nina Ricci Fall/Winter 2014-2015. Adorning all of your fingers makes for a really daring statement. To make this work in your daily wear, choose rings with modern or minimalistic designs and pair them with a simple clutch to draw attention.
So what are you waiting for? Make your hardworking hands happy by buying yourself a delicious fancy ring right now.
