When Rings Have Meaning

How Your Ring Tells Your Story

It's a small piece of jewelry that's easy to wear every day — a ring. Of course engagement rings and wedding bands hold significance, but there are many other ways to tell your story. Here are a few of our favorite ways to wear rings in beautifully meaningful ways.

A twisting, yellow gold right hand ring with the two center twists containing rows of diamonds Jewelry With Meaning

With their extravagant gemstones or solitaire diamonds, right-hand rings are becoming more and more popular. They can represent something meaningful or serve as personal style statements.

Most people are right-handed, so these rings are quite noticeable. Maybe that's why during Prohibition, women who drank wore rings on the right hand — and how the cocktail ring earned its name!

A silver Claddagh ring Claddagh Rings

A Claddagh ring is from Irish tradition and always shows two hands holding a heart with a crown on top. They can feature diamonds or gemstones, and are crafted from every type of gold.

When the Claddagh ring is worn on the right hand with the heart facing inward, the person wearing the ring is in a relationship. On the left hand with the heart facing outward means the wearer is engaged to be married.

A white gold, pear-shaped statement ring surrounded by blue topaz gemstones Statement and Cocktail Rings

A big, bold ring is a great way to capture attention and display what's important to you. These statement rings, cocktail rings, or large gemstone rings offer endless ways to tell your story.

Wear your ring on a middle or index finger — maximum finger space means you can make a bigger statement.

A mother's heart-shaped birthstone double row ring Mother's Rings

Mother's rings are personal, treasured pieces of jewelry. Whether you engrave your ring with names or create one that features several birthstones, its meaning is what makes it beautiful.

You might want to wear a mother's ring on the right hand — a lovely counterpart to the traditional wedding set on the left.

An anniversary ring is a meaningful way to mark a wedding milestone. Typically a diamond ring, it marks big occasions like the 10- or 15-year anniversaries.

Eternity bands with stones all the way around the band, rings with the couple's birthstones, or three-stone diamond rings are other great anniversary ring options.
