Complete Rings Guide

Complete Rings Guide

Rings can be worn for a variety of reasons, and have a long history of wear throughout every culture. From daily wear to accent pieces worn to special events, rings can be so much more than your engagement rings and wedding bands. 

To help you find the perfect rings to add to your collection and fold into your wardrobes, we have curated this guide to the various types of rings that you can wear. 

Diamond Fashion Rings

Before you buy a diamond fashion ring, you might want to learn a little more about what a fashion ring is. What distinguishes a diamond fashion ring from a regular fashion ring? Can you even have a diamond fashion ring? Let's take a look.

What are Fashion Rings?

Usually, "fashion ring" refers to something that isn't fine or semi-fine jewelry. "Fashion" refers to something that's designed to be affordable and cheap. "Statement ring" usually means something particularly prized for its aesthetic. 

But that's not the case when it comes to diamond fashion rings. You may have already noted that a diamond ring is already fine jewelry. So, it cannot just be a "fashion" ring. When it comes to diamond rings, the distinction is between a wedding or an engagement ring and a "fashion ring," rather than fine jewelry vs. fashion jewelry.

An engagement or wedding ring isn't just jewelry. It's important. To some, it's sacred. It's something that signifies a bond between two people. Meanwhile, you can call a ring a "fashion ring" because even though it does have a diamond in it, it's meant purely for style. You would wear a diamond fashion ring if you love diamonds rather than trying to show a form of commitment.

Fashion rings are always worn on fingers other than the ring finger. The left ring finger often symbolizes engagement or pre-engagement whereas the right ring finger will symbolize marriage. But any other finger for a diamond fashion ring is fair play!

What are Your 3 Most Popular Diamond Fashion Rings?

  • Pear Sapphire Ring. This beautiful ring features a diamond in the center and two sapphires on the outside, along with a Victorian or classic setting.
  • Victorian Diamond Ring. A lot of fashion rings are designed in a more classical or vintage style, which makes it clearer that they're just intended for looks.
  • Strawberry and Chocolate Ring. Many diamond fashion rings feature diamonds that wouldn't be used in a wedding ring, such as chocolate or strawberry diamonds.

Gemstone Fashion Rings

What is a ring about if not fashion? Well, for a long time in human history, rings have been a signifier of many things. For some, they signified status, such as royalty. For others, they signified relationships, such as marriage. Gemstone fashion rings are unique. Let's take a look at gemstone fashion rings and some popular gemstone fashion rings.

What are Fashion Rings?

Fashion rings refer to rings that are designed solely for style. That's opposed to a ring that means something such as an engagement ring. 

When it comes to diamond rings especially, you might have noticed people frequently pointing and saying "hey, is that an engagement ring?" People are used to certain styles such as solitaire things denoting an engagement or marriage.

But when worn on another finger and designed solely for attractiveness and a specific aesthetic, rings are just fashion rings. Gemstone fashion rings can contain any type of gemstone depending on the stones the individual most likes.

The only consideration with a gemstone fashion ring is that some gemstones are softer than others. An emerald ring may break under conditions that a diamond ring, of course, would not. An opal ring will be more vulnerable than an emerald.

Other than that, there's a lot to be said for experimenting with different types of gems and even combinations of gems. For instance, there are mixed rings that include sapphires, emeralds, and rubies in a pattern.

If you're looking for gemstone fashion rings, you can start with the type of gemstone you want.
  • Australian Opal. Australian opals often have deeper, more dramatic colors than regular opals; this one has a beautiful sparkling blue.
  • Garnet. This attractive, natural garnet ring is surrounded by a beautiful and warm hammered gold, which further accents the garnet's fiery color.
  • Pink Sapphire. Expensive but extraordinary, this cushion-cut sapphire is a rare gemstone, especially in this size. It's surrounded by small diamonds.
Of course, it's possible to use some gemstone fashion rings as engagement rings, too. If you want to take a look at the rings we have in stock, check us out at Occasions Fine Jewelry.

Pearl Rings

Few things define luxury as much as a pearl ring. Pearl rings are unique because they aren't just attractive and sophisticated; they denote someone who has it "easy." Pearl is one of the most easily scratched materials and only those who have an easy-living lifestyle can keep these beautiful pieces of jewelry safe.

How to Clean Pearl Rings? 

Pearl rings should be cleaned about every six months with a soft cloth. Be sure to remove any dirt or dust that may have accumulated on the ring. If the pearl is dirty, you can use a mild soap and water solution to clean it. Make sure to rinse the ring thoroughly and dry it completely before putting it back on your finger.

If your pearl ring has gotten wet, you will need to take some additional steps to make sure it is properly dried. Gently brush off any excess water from the ring and then place it in a safe place where it can air dry. Do not put the ring in direct sunlight or use a hairdryer as this could damage the pearl.

After your pearl ring is fully dried, you can apply a light coat of jewelry polish to help protect the ring and keep it looking shiny and new.

How to Clean Pearl Rings with Stones

If your pearl ring has stones, you will need to take a few additional steps to clean it. Make sure to remove any dirt or dust from the stones before cleaning the ring. Use a mild soap and water solution to clean the ring, making sure to avoid getting the stones too wet. Rinse the ring thoroughly and dry it completely before putting it back on your finger. Absolutely do not use an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner with a pearl ring with stones. It will damage the pearls and potentially unseat the stones!

How to Store Your Pearl Rings

Pearl rings should be stored in a jewelry box when not in use, such as a ring box. Make sure to avoid storing them with other pieces of jewelry that could scratch the pearls.

There are a few occasions when you might not want to wear your pearl ring. If you are going to be doing any strenuous activities, such as working out or playing sports, it is best to remove your pearl ring. The same goes for swimming – pearls should not be worn in the pool or ocean.

Pearl rings are also not recommended for use in a professional setting or at work; they can easily get scuffed or fractured.

Silver Rings

What's more versatile than the classic silver ring? There are many advantages to silver rings: They go great with everything. They don't irritate the skin. They're fine jewelry; they retain their value. And silver is also a soft, warm metal, so silver rings tend to be comfortable. There are silver rings for men, silver rings for women, and even the perfect silver rings for children. Let's take a deeper look into silver rings and what they mean.

How to Clean a Silver Ring

Silver rings should be cleaned regularly to remove any tarnish and keep them looking their best. To clean your silver ring, all you need is a bowl of warm water, some dish soap, and a soft cloth. Soak the ring in the water for a few minutes, then add a little bit of dish soap. Rub the ring gently with the cloth, then rinse and dry.

You can also use silver polish to clean your ring. Just make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully, as too much polish can damage the ring.

How to Clean Silver Rings with Stones

If your silver ring has stones, you'll need to take extra care when cleaning it. Make sure to use mild soap and water, and avoid using any harsh chemicals or abrasives. Gently clean the stones with a soft cloth, then rinse and dry. Don't forget to check the stones periodically and replace them if they start to look dull or worn. There are professional jewelry cleaning solutions you can use instead of soap and water.

The hardness of the stone matters. Diamonds are the hardest stones and can withstand more abrasion than other softer stones. Softer stones include, but are not limited to, amethyst, citrine, peridot, and tourmaline.
