How many of you are people who wear a ring on just one hand and wish you could wear rings on both hands? How many of you, on the other hand, have thought to yourself that two rings would look too much and prefer not to wear one altogether?
In this post, we will explore the different ways on how to wear rings on both hands. We’ll also show you how to make them look cohesive without having to buy two of the same rings!
How to Wear Rings on Both Hands with Statement Jewelry
Statement jewelry, or pieces that work together as a cohesive unit and are often the focal point of an outfit, allows you to wear rings on both hands without compromising the appearance of your hand.
This is because other than these bold pieces, your entire ring will be hidden behind them! How’s that for an easy trick to make two rings look cohesive?
In addition, a large statement necklace also helps lessen the visibility of wearing two different-sized rings side by side from a distance – it works like camouflage so nobody can see what’s going on (no pun intended).
Consider the Size and Width of Your Fingers When Choosing a Ring to Wear on Each Hand
Although one might say, “it’s not about the size of the boat, it’s about the motion of the ocean,” when selecting rings to wear on both hands, you want them to be complementary in terms of proportion.
This means that if you have short fingers with thin bones such as a dainty type, wearing two large rings will most likely look unfavorable as they’ll appear overwhelming for your hand. On the other hand, if you have long slender fingers, wearing two small rings will also seem lackluster and disproportionate once put together on your hand.
Choose a ring that matches your index finger (the longest finger) so that it doesn’t take over the entire space between each finger but instead sits comfortably side by side with your ring finger (the second longest) as the supporting actor.
Wear Rings with Similar Colors on Both Hands for an Elegant Look
If you’re a fan of wearing similar colors across your entire outfit, this tip is for you! How many times have you felt like adding a pop of color to one part of your look but didn’t want to end up over-accessorizing?
How about putting on two rings in complementary colors on both hands? (They don’t necessarily need to be the same design either!) This strategy works well as long as the color(s) in each ring is the only splash of color within that particular piece.
For example, if an outfit has a lot of black and white, it’s alright to incorporate some orange in several places throughout the ensemble, such as shoes and a handbag. In short, try to limit yourself to only two items of clothing or accessories with different colors on each hand.
Wear Rings with Complementary Colors on Both Hands for a More Daring Look
If you’re someone who likes a little edge or wants to make a bold statement, then this tip is for you! How would you like to wear two rings in different colors on both hands? This look screams confidence and works incredibly well when you want to draw attention away from your outfit.
How so? It’s not about what the ring is made of, but rather it is color that will make all the difference. For example, wearing an emerald yellow ring with an orange ring will instantly draw more focus on your hand instead of wherever else it might be pointing at.
Wear Rings With Similar Gemstones on Both Hands for an Interesting Look
If you’re a fan of layering your rings on one hand with different designs but want to switch up the design on the ring finger on your other hand, consider wearing two rings with similar gemstones. How many times have you seen someone wear two different colored rings?
This look will work especially well when you combine a ring with an accent stone (such as opal or moonstone) and another that is plain and simple such as gold, silver, or platinum — simple yet eye-catching!
Wear Rings with Opposite Gemstones on Both Hands for a Playful Look
A great way to show off some of your personality while still coordinating your accessories is to wear two rings with opposite gemstones. How does this strategy work? Like in tip #1, wear your index finger ring in a color that matches the accent color of your outfit.
Next, choose a ring for the middle or ring finger on your other hand and go with its complementary gemstone within the color spectrum (example: red garnet with orange moonstone; yellow sapphire with blue topaz).
Wear Rings with Similar Stones, but Different Metal Colors on Both Hands for a Fun Look
If you’re someone who likes wearing accessories with different metals but wants to tie it all together without being too matchy-matchy, then this tip is for you!
