Wide Band Rings

By Cynthia Sliwa — July 29, 2014

Rings figure significantly in the world of fashion this season, with the look of a lot of jewelry on the fingers achieved through many avenues of adornment, including midi rings and U-shaped between-the-fingers rings. Wide band rings present another opportunity to display serious jewels on one’s fingers.

As Marion Fasel writes in the February 2014 issue of InStyle, quoting Me & Ro designer Robin Renzi:  “More modern than a cocktail ring and a lot sleeker than a stack of bands, these bold pieces make a serious statement.” Renzi “prefers to flaunt the heavy metal on her middle finger (‘It’s a little rock and roll,’ she says).”  Pictured (in numerical order) are wide band rings from Carla Amorim, Jennifer Fisher, Colette, H. Stern, Anne Fischer, Me & Ro, Yossi Harari, Tiffany & Co., Bulgari, Cartier, Penny Preville, and Cathy Waterman.

If one wide band ring isn’t enough, they can be worn in multiples, as seen in this photo of singer Rihanna from the March 2014 issue of Vogue. She wears multiple coil rings, some accented with pavé diamonds, from Lynn Ban with a silver mesh dress from Versace.
