Right Hand Rings

15 Jan

Remember when right hand rings were a thing, when advertisements prompted women of the world to buy their own pretty rings and wear them on their right hand?

I found the advertisements irksome — like I wasn’t aware I had a right hand and five whole fingers I could decorate without waiting on a man to buy me a ring before the ad? — but I do love the idea of having a fun or pretty ring on that hand.

Normally, I wear three tiny stacking rings on my middle finger – a silver one for the mister, a gold one for me, and a silver/gold twist for the baby (pause for gagging over the sentimentality).

Sometimes I swap the stacking rings out for chunky rings with stones like turquoise or rhodocrosite that I’ve picked up on vacations. I have a few favorites but I am always looking to add to my collection.

Anthropologie has these sweet little initial rings – apparently I cannot squash the urge to buy sentimental jewelry.

Nordstrom has this classic chunky silver ring that I adore.

And for a bit of sparkle, this flower ring from Banana Republic is pretty fantastic.

Do you wear rings other than a wedding band or an engagement ring? If so, do you wear the same one or two or do you like to have a ring wardrobe?

    I don’t have an engagement ring yet, but I do like to wear other rings, on both hands. I have some that are “nice” (opals and sapphires, small diamonds), and some that are “fun,” and what I wear depends on my mood/outfit/plans.

    I’m in love with that Nordstrom ring!

    Well, now I really really need some of those simple stacking rings! Love.
