How To Wear Rings On Multiple Fingers

How To Wear Rings On Multiple Fingers There is no specific rule or law that everyone should abide by regarding wearing rings on multiple fingers. Some people prefer to wear all their rings on the same hand, others prefer to mix it up.  If you choose to wear multiple rings, you can wear other jewellery accessories to compliment your rings. Chokers, bracelets, and earrings are all suitable options that you can wear to accompany your rings. However, it is key that whatever jewellery you decide to wear doesn’t take away the attention of your rings.  Co-Creatives have a wide range of rings that offer a variety of styles and designs that can provide you the best multi ring look.

Why Wear Multiple Rings?

A wedding ring is a symbol of love and commitment to your spouse. However, it is completely normal to wear jewellery other than just a wedding band. 

Some people choose to wear multiple rings on a single finger/hand or even between two hands – it all depends on the person and their preference! People wear multiple rings because they like the look of it. Others wear them this way for religious or sentimental reasons and special occasions. 

Wearing  multiple rings is becoming more popular over time due to the nature of some designs and affordability. Wearing multiple rings allows you to apply that little extra spark that will go a long way. Also, boosting your creativity and personality. 

Types of Rings to Wear on Multiple Fingers

These are some of the types of rings to wear on multiple fingers.

Statement Rings – Statement rings are made to live up to their name – they are worn to make a statement. Whether you are at a party or high-end function, wearing multiple rings is a great way to express yourself. 

Statement rings usually come in gold or silver and are becoming the first choice for many women and men in today’s society.  

Statement rings are also known as cocktail rings. This term is often applied to large right-hand rings that are fun to wear and get a lot of attention. This is due to the ring being exuberant and colourful. 

Stackable Rings – Ring stacking is a jewellery trend where you wear multiple rings on one or multiple fingers.

It is common for ring stackers to start off by adding anniversary rings to their engagement ring and wedding ring. However, that does not mean that stacking must include wedding bands.

Midi Rings – A midi ring is a tiny delicate ring that is worn on the middle knuckle of your finger. They became popular as you can style them in many different ways. The most popular way to wear these rings is by keeping a minimal and delicate look where you only wear one or two bands. They are convenient as they can be paired with statement rings or cocktail rings to make a bold and unique look.  Some may think that midi rings fall off very easily. However, if you get used to them and choose the right size, you’ll be glad to know that they are comfortable and secure. 

Knuckle Rings – This is where you wear the low ring on your finger, you wear it above your finger’s middle point. 

Choosing Rings for Each Finger

Index Finger –  A ring suitable for the index finger would be a statement ring.

Many females like to wear this ring on their left or right index fingers. This may be due to wanting to call back to the 1920s, where when wearing these rings were being worn by women, it symbolises their rights and independence. 

Middle Finger – A ring suitable for the middle finger would be a ring stack or even a solo dome ring. The middle finger symbolises harmony and responsibility so placing a ring on this finger will echo this. 

Ring Finger – Different types of engagement rings suit different finger types. 

Pinky Finger – A ring that suits the pinky ring is the pinky signet ring. Many people decide to wear a signet ring on the pinky finger of the non-dominant hand. So if you’re right handed the signet ring would go on the left pinky finger. 

Traditionally, many women avoid wearing a signet ring on their wedding finger, this makes the ring a suitable substitute. 

Mixing and Matching Rings

Mixing jewellery is a popular trend at the moment as it allows you to wear several different pieces of jewellery at once. This creates your own unique style. 

Balancing Ring Sizes – When wearing multiple rings it is key to remember balance. If you are already wearing rings on one hand, you most likely won’t need to wear any on the other. However, if you have one hand covered in rings and the other one blank, it will look unbalanced. 

It isn’t just the amount of rings on each hand that will make the whole look appear unbalanced, other factors such as the weight and thickness of each ring will also have an effect. 

Combining Ring Styles – When wearing multiple rings it is important to highlight the styles that you have available and allow them to work with one another to bring your whole look together. 

Coordinating Ring Colors and Metals – The colour gold comes in a variety of colours, which makes it easy to mix and match. An idea that you can implement when coordinating ring colours is to make the piece complement your skin tone. 

For instance, yellow and rose gold complements warmer skin tones, whereas silver and white gold compliment cool skin tones.
