Innovative trends in ring design

Ring design has come a long way from the traditional stone set piece. There are a few interesting trends that are here to stay

Illusion rings

I love the illusion ring, a clever design that leaves you wondering how it’s done

This gold chevron ring by Katia V on Etsy is one ring rather than two. The way it is made ensures the two chevrons maintain their distance apart on the finger

This X ring by Happy Way Jewelry has a similar look

WD Unique Designs has a lovely range of these types of illusion rings including this one

This ring by Raphael Steinbach features another trend in illusion rings, showing a lot of skin through the front of the ring

Unusual shapes
There is also a trend for more unusual shapes in rings, playing on the traditional and turning it on it’s head

This gorgeous resin and metal ring by Vania Ruiz plays on the depth of the finger

This Pear point ring by Paul Bierker features an unusual stone setting seen from the side

I love this ring for it's innovative interplay between the hammered silver and the wire, by Pedro Iglesias,

Knuckle rings

There is also a trend that’s been around for a few seasons of wearing a ring halfway up the finger instead of past the knuckle. The style of these tends to be quite simple

These dainty knuckle rings are by Lime Lace

These are from LLI wireworks

Haven’t had time to redo your nail polish? No problem, you can get knuckle rings with nails like this from Yiwu products

Have you made any unusual rings? I’d love to see your take on this trend so please share them with me via the comments below
