The Power of the Statement Ring

My mother bought this huge citrine ring in Thailand when I was a kid and wore it all the time for evening occasions. The ring was a showstopper whenever she wore it. She also had bracelets she brought on her international travels and beautiful earrings to complete the look. My mother has always had over the top jewelry for her everyday life. I too have always enjoyed a statement ring, but I would say in the last few years my jewelry collection has transformed from costumey pieces to more refined pieces. 

Like my mother, women who have great personal style don’t save their nice items for special occasions, they use them everyday and make them part of their personal style. So this is your message to wear your beautiful jewelry often.  What’s the point of them sitting in your jewelry box? These are items that can help define your style and level up a basic outfit.  

Stylish women spend time curating their collection of jewelry so that it really makes their heart sing. They may have a favorite jewelry piece or one they really searched  around for, but usually have these special pieces that are unique to them that also help create a really unique personal style. They wear often so you associate that piece with them; it can be a special ring that they wear daily. It’s what they are known for; and when you see them you think wow, she has such cool style because her jewelry pulls her whole look together.

Overall I think my ring collection is  unique and my personal style is reflected in my jewelry pieces.  I love rings because I can see them throughout the day unlike earring and necklaces which are for other people to enjoy on you. 

The bottom 1st row are the rings I wear almost every day. I love wearing the black signet ring on my pinky. The Evil Eye in the second row I love for vacations because it looks like cheap costume jewelry so I figure no one is going to rob me but it's still an interesting piece. The third row is animal kingdom: I have a tiger, snake, and cheetah. I wear the cats when I dress up to go out at night and have matching bracelets. The snake is an everyday ring. The top 4th row are rings I don't wear as often but I put in this box to remind me to.

When you build your jewelry collection you want to think about practicality, personality and quality (it won't tarnish after excessive wear). Before you purchase think does this piece of jewelry excite me and do I think it says something about my style and how I want to express myself. 

I recommend organizing your jewelry in a box and put it somewhere you can easily see it. Because if you can actually see what you own, you will wear it more often.

Below is an expansive list of eye-catching rings with unique shapes that you might enjoy! You can buy a ring sizer on amazon so you know what size you are when shopping online. Don't buy something just because it's fancy, consider if you're actually going to wear it and if it really expresses your style.

Kendra Scott

This used to be my favorite jewelry store but I don't really shop here anymore. Definitely pop in on your birthday month, you get to purchase one piece at 50% off.

I also no longer shop at Bauble Bar, I bought two necklaces from them last year that changed from gold to silver in 3 months! When they have sales, items are so deeply discounted it really shows me how overpriced regular price is. I also omitted Messika from this list as I've learned more about their diamond sourcing and see they scrubbed where their home office is from their website. 

The next 8 brands are at a much higher price point.
