While diamond bands have long been traditionally considered the standard for wedding rings, these are actually a versatile piece of jewelry that can be worn by men and women on the right or left hand.
Choosing when and how to wear bands with diamonds or other gemstones is really a personal choice, but there are a lot of great possibilities that are not just traditional but also very trendy.
Right Hand Rings
Larger, heavier and more substantial bands and diamonds are the hallmarks of a great right-hand ring. These rings are very popular for women of all ages, and they can be given as a gift for a special event or accomplishment or simply as a present to yourself.
Right-hand rings are typically worn on the ring finger of the right hand, but they can actually be worn on any finger and on either hand. As they are a band, they are good for both day and evening wear, and they can easily sit on a finger next to a larger cocktail or evening ring without any discomfort.
There is also a growing trend to wear the slightly narrower diamond bands as both a pinkie ring or a thumb ring. They are a natural choice for either finger and with their flat profile, they are easy to wear and go great with both casual and business wear. They are also a great option for evening wear when you want to add just a bit of dazzle and something that is both modern as well as classic.
Wearing multiple rings of different widths and with different types of gemstones is both a classic style as well as very much a trendy option. Stacking rings are often sold in sets, but you can also create your own style by choosing various very narrow diamond bands and mixing them with other narrow styles of rings with or without gemstones in settings.
Stacking rings are typically worn on the ring finger, or the middle finger and they can be worn on the right or left hand. The stacking can be obvious with multiple rings, or you can combine one or two of your favorites.
Silver, white gold, yellow gold and rose gold can all be combined with this option. The types of rings selected can make the stacking rings very elegant for fun and whimsical, and you can always add more to create a completely new look.
