For most women, the first diamond ring she will ever wear will be her engagement ring. And because of this, buying diamond rings has traditionally been done by men. And because men may even decide to propose with a ring that they have selected, a woman may not ever have had the chance to choose her own ring. Furthermore, some women choose not to get married, and those who do often do so at exactly the time when there are other commitments, such as a deposit for a home, furniture, babies and so on.
For all these reasons, a woman may never get the diamond she might wish for.
But this is certainly not the case when it comes to right hand diamond rings!
Right hand rings are one of the latest and most enduring new styles of jewelry to hit the market. They are unashamedly marketed to financially independent women, and epitomize success, self-assertiveness and non arrogant confidence. These women are typically upward of 35, have achieved their own style of success, and strong and confident in the way they lead their lives. They may be married, single, divorced or widowed; mothers or not; businesswomen, homemakers, explorers or whatever! But all of these women have the budget to buy, and want to choose a significant diamond ring that embodies who they are.
Also called cocktail rings and dress rings, right hand rings are designed completely differently from engagement rings. The gemstones are often smaller and they are usually set in swirls and elaborate cascades which completely cover the band. However, there is no rule for a right hand ring and it cannot contain too many diamonds either! Baguettes, princess and trillion are often used to highlight the different personality of these rings.
As with all the best engagement rings, the bands for these rings are always precious metals. Usually made from high grade white or yellow gold although platinum is also a popular choice.
These rings symbolize fun, strength in spirit and individuality. And they have also gained popularity because they give the opportunity to try out some of the other gemstones too. New gemstones seem to be entering the market nearly every month! And celebrities are increasingly wearing huge gemstone rings. Diamond accented right hand gemstone rings are the perfect way to enjoy gemstones, such as tanzanite, amethyst, peridot, aquamarine etc.
And they are beautiful. Right hand rings make the perfect gift for any strong spirited woman.
