The rings are perfect jewels to give a different bright to our looks, besides playing an important role when you wish to complement your outfit. And as you could see, most of the time they have such a shape that there is no need to wear another jewel.

• Big hands

If your case is that you have thick and big hands, small or delicate rings will lose in hand size.

We recommend you to wear colorful, huge, striking models to hide your hand size.

Believe it or not, age influences the type of ring you can choose. If you have young hands, small rings are perfect because they call the attention and complement the delicacy of this hand type. For example, you can wear minimalist and thin rings with some small stone.

Luminous Union Ring

Link Ring
• Long fingers

Having long fingers give you the possibility of wearing almost any design of ring because they help your hands look delicate and stylized. So, you can wear rings with big stones, rings with pearls of different sizes, rings with extravagant designs, or small rings with subtle designs. However, if you have very long fingers, rings with circular designs will help you to camouflage the length of your fingers.

Pink Glossy Ring
• Short fingers

If you have short fingers, the best option is to wear rings that create the illusion of having long fingers. To reach this, you can wear rings with long or vertical designs, or even you can wear rings with marquise or pear cut. It is important to avoid those rings with big shapes, or with round designs, since they will shorten even more your fingers.

Kristus Ring

Thick fingers characterize by having big knuckles and they give a round and short aspect to the fingers and hand. So, for hiding the width of fingers, the best rings you can wear are those delicate with simple and minimalist design. The models you should avoid are the big rings with thick and striking design to not shorten even more the fingers.

Crusader Ring
