Yes, you’ve heard it from me many times — how difficult it is to pull off the “rings on many fingers” look. Frankly, most people just don’t get how to do it. Heck, I don’t think I’ve even mastered bedazzling more than three fingers at a time! That’s why when I see it done well, I have to take a close look and admire. This was the case with the woman I had lunch with this past week. With a background in fine arts, jewelry, and design, I’m not surprised that this was in her talent base.

While she was wearing EIGHT rings (how I wish I could do that), it was just so delicate and well-balanced. It didn’t overpower her or her outfit, and it melded so well with her clear sense of personal style. The fact that she could express her style with such an effortless panache, it made me want to get to know her all the more. It wasn’t as if she was “trying” too hard, it was just her.
I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to meet her, and I can’t wait to see what she’s wearing next!

i am with you – i so love the look…but it is difficult to accomplish…i am always looking at pics on pinterest etc…so once i see something that i like…i save it…amazing that 8 rings can look so simple and not over bearing…while i tend to wear my BIG cocktail rings…i am gravitating to this look…i want to make it work…so far…i only have my thumb ring…but it’s a start..right?
It’s most definitely a start, Elena! I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Have fun shopping!
I have found that thin plain knuckle rings are a key component of the multi-ring look.
Excellent tip, Melissa! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
This is so difficult to master! I’ve been working on wearing rings on 3-4 fingers. There’s so much to consider – like wear and tear if rings are going to be on adjacent fingers and scrape against each other. Onward with my attempts!
You are so right, Elise! Finding just the right combination is a delicate balance. Have fun experimenting!
