Rings are a timeless accessory that can elevate any outfit, from casual to formal. But with so many styles and options available — from a wrap around ring to big gemstones — it can be overwhelming to decide how to style them.

Whether you’re looking to create a statement or add some subtle sparkle, we’ve got you covered with these tips and tricks for styling rings for every occasion.

Start with a Statement Piece

If you’re looking to make a bold statement, start with a statement ring. This could be a large cocktail ring or a bold statement band. Keep the rest of your jewelry minimal to let the ring take center stage. Choose a ring that fits your personal style and complements the outfit you’re wearing.

We think a wrap around ring is the perfect statement piece to begin with. Plated with 18K rose gold, our wrap around ring is delicate and simple, making it a great base no matter your style or outfit. It looks like it’s subtly climbing up your ring finger, a bold twist on a classic ring that will have all eyes on you.

Mix and Match

Don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles of rings. Stack delicate bands with statement pieces or mix metals for a trendy look. Keep the rest of your jewelry simple to avoid overwhelming your outfit.

Consider Proportions

When styling rings, it’s important to consider the proportions of your hands and fingers. If you have small hands or fingers, avoid wearing oversized rings that can overpower your hands. Instead, opt for delicate bands or smaller statement pieces.

Add Some Sparkle

If you’re looking to add some sparkle to your outfit, choose rings with stones or embellishments. This could be a simple solitaire or a more intricate design with multiple stones. Pair with other jewelry that compliments the color of the stones for a cohesive look.

Layer with Other Jewelry

Rings can also be layered with other jewelry for a more intricate look. Pair with bracelets or a statement necklace for a cohesive look. Keep the rest of your jewelry simple to avoid overwhelming your outfit.

Match Your Metals

When styling rings, it’s important to consider the metal of the ring and the other jewelry you’re wearing. If you’re wearing gold jewelry, opt for a gold ring. If you’re wearing silver jewelry, opt for a silver ring. Mixing metals can create a trendy look, but it’s important to do so intentionally to avoid looking mismatched.

Don’t Forget Your Nails

When styling rings, don’t forget to consider your nail color. Choose colors that complement the metal of the ring or the stones. A neutral nail color can also allow the ring to stand out and take center stage.

Pastel Colors

Pastel colors have been popular for a few years now, and they are still going strong in 2023. Soft shades of pink, blue, green, and purple are perfect for adding a touch of femininity and fun to your nails. You can also mix and match different pastel shades for a fun and playful look.

Glitter

Glitter nail polish comes in a variety of colors and can be used as an accent nail or as a full manicure. You can also try different glitter shapes like stars, hearts, and diamonds.

Metallic

Metallic nail polish is another trend that is expected to be big in 2023. Shades like gold, silver, and bronze can add some glam and sophistication to your look. You can also try different finishes like matte or chrome for a unique and trendy look.

Neon

Neon nail polish is perfect for adding a pop of color to your nails. Bright shades like hot pink, electric blue, and neon green are sure to make a statement. You can also try different nail art designs with neon polish for a fun and playful look.

Black and White

Black and white nail polish is a classic trend that never goes out of style. This year, we expect to see more black and white nail art designs, like stripes, polka dots, and checkerboards. You can also try adding a pop of color to your black and white nails for a bold and modern look.

Consider Your Outfit

When choosing rings to wear, consider the outfit you’ll be wearing. If you’re wearing a busy pattern or bright colors, opt for simpler rings to avoid overwhelming your outfit. If you’re wearing a simple outfit, opt for more intricate rings to add some interest.

Casual Outfits

For casual outfits, you want to wear rings that are simple, comfortable, and not too flashy. We recommend wearing dainty rings or stacking rings. Dainty rings are perfect for a minimalist look, while stacking rings can add a bit of variety to your outfit. You can also mix and match different metal colors, like gold and silver, to add some dimension to your look.

Formal Outfits

When it comes to formal outfits, you want to wear rings that are classic and sophisticated. You can wear statement rings, but make sure they don't overpower your outfit. We recommend wearing delicate rings with a small diamond or gemstone. These rings are perfect for adding a touch of glamour and sparkle to your outfit.

Business Outfits

For business outfits, you want to wear rings that are professional, polished, and not too distracting. We recommend wearing simple rings with a single diamond or gemstone. These rings add a touch of sophistication and class to your overall look. Avoid wearing flashy rings or ones with large stones, as they can be too distracting in a professional setting.

Bohemian Outfits

Bohemian outfits are all about free-spiritedness and whimsy. You can wear rings with colorful stones or intricate designs that reflect your bohemian style. We recommend wearing rings with turquoise, opal, or coral stones. These rings are perfect for adding a pop of color and a touch of bohemian vibe to your outfit.

Beach Outfits

For beach outfits, you want to wear rings that are simple, lightweight, and not too bulky. We recommend wearing rings made of natural materials like wood or shells. You can also wear rings with ocean-inspired designs like starfish, seashells, or waves. These rings are perfect for adding a touch of beachy vibe to your outfit.

Think About the Occasion

Consider the occasion when choosing rings to wear. If you’re attending a formal event, opt for more formal and intricate rings. If you’re attending a casual event, opt for simpler and more understated rings.

Be Confident

Most importantly, be confident in your ring styling choices! Choose delicate rings that make you feel comfortable and confident. Rings are meant to be an expression of your personal style, so have fun and experiment with different styles and combinations.
