As women we love rings; large ones, small one, dainty or chunky, plain or bejewelled, real gold and diamonds or faux bijoux. We can’t get enough of how amazing they look on our fingers, and sometimes even on our toes. We either wear one or 10 rings per hand, piling them up, mixing and matching and really bringing out the bling. We can wear a ring on one or all the 5 fingers, at the base or near the nail beds. The classical style may be a single dainty ring worn on a single finger or 2, but that just isn’t in. The huge diamonds aren’t really making the cut either these days. It may be statement we’re going for, but not in a single piece. The modern way to wear rings is to pile them all up and make your fingers the conversation starter you often find rather hard. What you want is a glorious spread of bejewelled and amply decorated fun on those digits of yours.
What you should be doing with those rings is to be playing with the shapes, the colors, the textures and the overall characteristics of each piece. Spirals, coils and chains are all in. Smaller rings are better these days as they can be stacked up or subtracted from the look according to the design you want to achieve. Silver and gunmetal are likely materials to be looking for, while gold is taking a backseat these days.
Still don’t know how to wear rings? Here are some awesome ways to wear your rings with a modern twist!
You don’t need to wear the rings at the base of your fingers on that finger alone. Instead, it may be a fun alternative to move into wearing them as midi rings as they are so fashionably called these days, adding some interest to the look. It looks different, perfectly cool and it’s a new style trend that’s worth following. Plus, it elongates the look of your fingers, thoroughly focusing attention on the hands, particularly if your nails have been painted with gorgeous lacquer as well.

Looking particularly amazing on your pinkie finger, a gorgeous modern style is the camouflage ring that covers your nail bed and is worn at the edge, sort of like a midi, but one that engulfs half the digit. Katy Perry was seen sporting a similar style ring of late and it looked out of this world! Literally. It’s something out of a futuristic movie and we love it!
Who said a single piece needs to be for a single finger? Modern day rings can have it encompass multiple fingers as well, waving through with silver or darker colors, often with jewels or pearls placed at the ends. It’s a lovely statement, though may be a little uncomfortable to move about those digits freely. It may take some getting used to, but they are by far some of the most gorgeous pieces.
The best way to wear a ring these days is to have them go over your knuckles, sitting in the middle or the base of your fingers and elongating the look. While midi rings sit right on top of the joints, these instead fall to covering the knuckle and/or those joints. They are interesting looks and certainly able to make a proper statement these days.

Open Band Rings
Thicker bands with an open concept in front, bejewelled at the ends and covering up half your digits are actually rather lovely, particularly since they appear to be bade up of multiple smaller bands stacked on top of one another with perfect spacing. It’s hard to go wrong with these gorgeous pieces.
There’s something rather interesting about having a thin chain holding together two rings worn on the same finger, one at the base and one as a midi. It adds character to the design, particularly if the chain itself is of a glittering diamond cut design. For women who absolutely love their rings but want to keep to the daintier looks, this is probably the best way to wear the jewelry on their fingers.
