Stacking rings has become an iconic fashion trend.
If you've ever wanted to wear multiple rings on not only one hand but on a single finger, stacking rings are the perfect solution for you. Differing bands of plain, hammered, accented or with a stone, can be chopped and changed around to suit what you are wearing on a given day.
Made from 1.8mm or 2mm sterling silver wire.
Stackable plain / hammered rind £20
Stackable with 6mm cabochon £35 (Amethyst and Turquoise are sourceable but will ave a higher price point of approx £45)
Stackable with nugget £35
Stackable with an accent such as a heart £35
A gemstone cabochon is a gemstone that has been shaped and polished to be a dome shape on the top and is usually flat on the bottom. Gemstones that are opaque are usually made into cabochons whereas more transparent gemstones are mainly faceted.
As a natural product each stone may have a slightly different shade /colour/striations.
Blue stone = Lapis
Orange stone = Amber and Carnelian
peacock blues, greens and golden yellow flashes = Labradorite
Red stone = Garnet
Green = Malachite and Agate
Black = onyx and hematite
A nugget - a ball of melted silver. Silver if melted enough will go from solid to a liquid form, as it does so it will form a ball / nugget
If the ring weight over 7.78grams will be hallmarked due to the hallmarking of silver requirements.
Most rings do not weigh enough to be required to do so.
Spinner or fidget rings
Spinner rings are designed to be fiddled with. They're a healthy, less obvious way to move your hands when you feel that you need to be fidgeting. You simply spin the outer layer of the ring with your fingers and take deep breaths to experience a calm, more meditative state. The bonus is they look lovely too.
The one to right has a silver and 9ct gold spinner with a gold nugget added tp the silver spinner. designs are endless I suppose form a simple plain spinner, to an accent to multiple spinners.
The one below has a copper heart on a beaded sterling silver spinner.
Made to order
Priced dependent on material used - £50 upwards.
Well that's what I call them ;-). A little twist here and there to create a wiggly band of Sterling silver.
TOP TIPS FOR MEASURING RING SIZES
App called Ring sizer
Downloadable on from the google and App Store
allows you to pop ring on to sizer on screen - make sure you change to AU/GB size though
Buy a ring sizer - or pop into a jewellers on the high street to check your size. there is a sizer at the Tobi Frames shop in Long Eaton too.
Measure fingers in the evening
Fingers shrink and expand depending on the temperature, so it's recommended to measure fingers in the evening when your fingers are likely to be at their largest.
Did you know, your dominant hand is slightly larger?
If your client is looking for an engagement ring, be aware that if they send you a ring often worn on their partner's other hand - be aware that the dominant hand is often bigger so it's good to let your client know this.
