Rings - Royal Trend of 2017

"Pomp and Circumstance"

Throughout history lavish affairs require festive attire and more importantly jewelry to enhance luxurious fabrics donned by the invited to the occasion.  Recently, at the Golden Globes 2017, a trend of wearing several shimmering rings on manicured hands were lavished on several of the A-Listers gliding down the red carpet.  The  desired look is reminiscent of the Elizabethan era in which rings were worn on the second joint of the fingers as well as the first.  When sporting glittering rings opt for feminine pieces and not large gaudy beauties.  Let the engagement ring on the left hand shine above all others.   It is always a balancing act to not appear ostentatious.  Thus, seek out gorgeous real and/or costume rings that showcase a self-confident woman ready to take on world with poise and grace with every endeavor.


Ring Rules:

  • Combine Rings - One on first finger and one on the third
  • Engagement Ring - Stand alone on left hand 
  • No Engagement Ring on Left - Wear one on first finger and one on the third

So, hold head high, chin up, dress for success, and remember to watch ones words in social media and verbally in public. The art of being positive is paramount and builds strong will among many.   Life is indeed a box of chocolates and a mystery to unfold.  Don't be afraid.  Be ready.  Be strong and embrace life with passion along with a few sparkling rings on fingers for extra twinkling confidence.
