When it comes to jewelry, there are no rules – and if you share our love of the statement rings trend, you’ll most certainly agree.
There’s something daring and a little over-the-top about a loud, look-at-me ring that screams fun and cheeky playfulness; not to mention the golden opportunities for conversation starters. “Oh, this old thing? I co-designed it with a Cape Town studio!”
Think of statement rings as the icing on the cake; a little sparkle to decorate your outfit.
So what’s the secret to styling these eclectic objets d’art? In the words of fashion maven Diane von Furstenberg: “Jewelry is like the perfect spice – it always complements what’s already there”.
1. Play with Contrasts
The trick is to make your statement ring the star of the outfit. A little black dress, for example, makes the perfect backdrop to show off a dazzling piece of colorful statement bling. Something darker and gothic-inspired on the other hand, adds an unexpected sexy
element to an all-white ensemble.
2. You Can’t Go Wrong with Vintage
Why not inject some old-school glamour into your wardrobe? I love the nostalgia of wearing a decadent piece of vintage jewelry as a nod to the past. Maybe your grandmother has some trinkets tucked away from days gone by that you can get redesigned by a designer like Ryan at Rollin Vintage.
Nothing beats the romantic allure of an intricate vintage ring for some sophisticated charm.
3. Stacked for Style
There are two ways to wear the stacked rings trend.
The first: layer a number of small, dainty rings across many fingers to create a subtle, cohesive look.
The second way (and our favorite) is to incorporate a stand-out statement ring into the stacking spree. Choose one glittery stunner and adorn the rest of your fingers with simpler, more subdued rings. The effect is delicate, feminine and va-va-voom all in one!
