What to look for when buying a statement ring


The first thing to consider when buying a statement ring is the shape of your hand. You want to pick a form that complements your hand shape and doesn’t overpower it. It’s best to go with a more straightforward ring if you have smaller hands or are petite because a large ring can make your hands look smaller. A larger ring can balance out your look if you have larger hands or are on the curvy side. The second thing to consider is the size of the ring. A large ring looks visually overpowering on anyone’s hand. Typically, rings that are more than 2 inches wide are considered statement rings.


Statement Ring I


The Souped-Up Signet Statement Ring


London-based label MATILDE’s Celestial ring is sent from the heavens. Sparkling with a scattering of lab-grown diamonds that mirror stars across the sky, the ring reinforces the label’s knack for drawing upon nature to create beautiful yet wearable creations. 


The piece is crafted during a process rooted in fairness. Crafted from 14k yellow gold, it's the only jewelry piece your outfit needs. This piece features round-cut white lab-grown diamonds weighing a total of 0.181 ct.

Go for a Gold Statement Ring


You’ve probably heard that gold is a sign of prosperity and power. The yellow hue associated with gold is also a symbol of regality and royalty. However, gold’s popularity as a precious metal has become a staple in fashion and jewelry. As a rule of thumb, an 18-karat gold ring is standard among most cultures. It’s the most popular and widely used gold standard. The next step down would be 14 karat gold. This type of gold is less durable than an 18-karat gold ring. It’s not as resistant to corrosion either. By contrast, a gold ring made of 10 karat gold is exceptionally durable.

Many different types of gold jewelry are available, each with its specific properties and appearance. Consider your lifestyle, budget, and personal tastes when choosing which pieces are right for you.

The Mix Metal Statement Ring

Mix metal rings are made from a combination of different metals. Mix metal jewelry can be either alloys or pure metals, such as copper and silver.

Invest in a Quality Statement Ring


It goes without saying that you should always invest in quality when purchasing a statement ring. Cheaper rings are made not only from a more affordable metal but also to lower standards than their pricier counterparts. This can come with many disadvantages and may even lead to the ring not fitting correctly as it should. So, when purchasing your statement ring, consider investing in a brand known for making high-quality jewelry. Some of the most prominent jewelry manufacturers include Swarovski, Pandora, and Tiffany & Co. These brands are known for using high-quality materials in their creations and generally have a wide selection of statement rings.


Statement Ring IV


The Double-Take Statement Ring


The goal of the Parisian fine jewelry brand Courbet is simple: to create beautiful pieces of jewelry that are also virtuous because “without goodness, beauty means nothing.” The brand, named after rebellious French painter Gustave Courbet, exclusively uses recycled gold and lab-grown diamonds. A portion of the label’s gold is “traditional” recycled material, such as jewelry. Still, most of it is sourced in urban mines - breathing new life into the substances that once formed computers and mobile phones with the help of metal recovery specialist Umicore.


Meticulously handcrafted in Europe, this 18k gold ring features the label’s signature “CO” design in shimmering lab-grown diamonds. It’s made with modern, empowered women in mind.

Try Something New and Different with Your Statement Ring


If you’re a regular reader of fashion magazines and keep up with the latest trends, you’re probably quite familiar with the standard ring designs and materials. You may have even tried out a few ring designs in the past. However, consider investing in a rare gemstone ring if you want to get your hands on something new and out of the ordinary. These rings are designed with a wide range of rare gemstones and are considered statement pieces. Rare gems such as moonstones, aquamarine, and opals are highly sought after and are sure to catch the attention of anyone who sees them. These rings are also quite durable and can last long without getting damaged.


Statement Ring V


The Fit-For-A-Queen Statement Ring


Cleopatra has been known for centuries for her incredible beauty, and this ring does her name justice.

This piece features 40 round-cut white lab-grown diamonds weighing 1.19 ct. The focal lab-grown diamond’s clarity is graded VS2.

Don’t Be Afraid to Go, Big or Small with Your Statement Ring


If you’re unsure about investing in a large ring, you can always start off small and build your way up as you gain confidence. Alternatively, you can start off big and finish strong with a more oversized, bolder ring design. Bigger doesn’t always mean better. Plenty of trendy, smaller ring designs in the market will catch your eye. More oversized rings can be extremely eye-catching and are sure to grab the attention of everyone around you.
