Costume Rings

When you use your hands to emphasise a point, illustrate a story or wave hello, your movements speak for you. Let them speak volumes about your fashion sense as well with gorgeous cocktail rings that catch the light with every graceful gesture. Major fashion rings for women are especially hot right now on catwalks and red carpets, taking the place of more expected jewellery. Embrace the trend with a wardrobe of costume rings. If sparkling rings are the punctuation for the vocabulary of gestures, then big fashion rings are the exclamation marks.

Symbolic rings such as wedding sets and engagement bands often follow quite conservative traditions, but costume rings are free to express a sense of fun and whimsy. Because you switch them out to suit your mood and mode of dress, you can show off your personal style with bold colours, designs and proportions. A large fashion ring that occupies your finger from knuckle to knuckle might not be practical for handling the daily washing, but it's a perfect head-turning accessory for evening.

Up-to-the-minute fashion ring trends

Fashion rings for women do follow a few conventions. One of the most popular designs is the cluster ring. Cluster rings maximise the visual impact of smaller stones by heaping them together in a setting that resembles a burst of fireworks in miniature. Just as a huge bouquet of flowers makes a more dramatic display than a single rose, a cluster ring makes an emphatic fashion statement. Figurative cluster shapes such as hearts, diamonds or floral designs add another layer of interest to an already intriguing style.

Another way to play with the proportion of cocktail rings is with a single large stone. Solitaire styles with semi-precious stones, decorative art glass or cut crystal let you go as bold as you like. Single pearl rings in oversized designs combine feminine appeal with major impact. Wear a single impressive stone in a cocktail ring for a gallery opening or a dinner party for an eye-catching, but streamlined look.

A classic take on big fashion rings is the centre-stone ring. Like a queen surrounded by her courtiers, a prominent central gem presides over a circle of smaller diamante stones. The design is especially beautiful when faceted crystals embrace a large central cabochon-cut gem in a rich jewel tone; the smooth dome of the cabochon makes a lovely contrast with the sparkle of faceted diamante.

Big fashion rings may be an of-the-moment trend, but they never go out of style. If you love to talk with your hands, give them something fascinating to say with a bold, beautiful cocktail ring in your signature colour.
