Rings: Let your hands do the talking!
Everyone loves jewellery – and rings are a fun, cool way to put the finishing touch on any outfit. If you're not used to wearing a ring, it can take a little bit of time to get used to it. You might want to start with something small and gradually build up, rather than beginning with big, eye-catching cocktail rings. If you don't know what size your fingers are, look for adjustable pieces. These will fit most fingers; on the other hand, serious, fine jewellery is usually made to particular sizes and should fit you like a glove.
Choosing something for every finger
Before you start experimenting with rings, take a good look at the shape of your hands. You might think that only women with long, elegant fingers can pull off a ring – but that's not true. If your fingers are on the short, stubby side, go for rings for women with a thinner band. This will elongate your fingers. If you're choosing a ring with a stone, look at the shape. An oval cut can make your fingers look more slender; if you have thin fingers, you can pull off a square or princess cut. If you've been blessed with long fingers, rejoice! You can enjoy big, eye-catching designs that make a serious statement! Try a cocktail ring, or stack several together to create your own, unique look.
How to style your jewellery
First, make sure your hands look good. Statement rings will draw the eye, so this is not the moment for bitten, grimy nails. You don't need to go for full-on false nails, but you might want to treat yourself to a manicure. There are a couple of fun looks you can try with a ring. A funky cocktail ring with a big, bold stone is a great style for after dark. Carry a clutch bag to draw more attention to your hands. By day, try stacking: Rather than wearing just one ring, put several on one finger. Experiment a bit before trying this look. It will generally be easier if you have long, slender fingers. You'll want to use a variety of rings, too; don't just pick simple bands, but mix it up with stones and designs for an eclectic, fun look. This is a great way to add instant bohemian chic to your style!
