Innovative trends in ring design

Following on from a look at innovative earrings, LJS tutor Anna Campbell looks at some of the 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 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.

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
