Right hand rings are a new category of ring style all of its own.
The right hand ring is a diamond or gemstone ring that is worn on the right hand.
The right hand ring is most commonly chosen by ladies who are not married or engaged.
Why the right hand? - Engagement rings and wedding rings are normally worn on the left hand. The right hand ring is worn on the right hand ring instead.
The concept of the right hand ring is that ladies who are not married nor engaged no longer need to miss out on the stunning beauty of sparkling diamond rings.
And you might be thinking that diamond right hand rings are limited to successful career women? Though you may be surprised to learn that ladies from all walks of life are sporting right hand rings.
When it comes to choosing your right hand ring, there are a few tips to keep in mind that will help you to select the perfect right hand ring that will suit your lifestyle.
The right hand ring is often worn on a daily basis, similarly to how an engagement ring or wedding ring is worn.
The frequency that you will wear your right hand ring will influence on the ring design including the ring metal and gemstones that you choose for your ring.
If you plan to wear your ring most of the time, it's important to choose a sturdy ring style with a good strong metal and strong, durable and hard gemstones.
Naturally as with all rings, it is best not to wear a right hand ring when you are playing sport, gardening, doing manual labour, using abrasive cleaning products or performing other tasks which could damage your ring.
Good metals to choose for a right hand ring are 18ct or 14ct white gold or yellow gold, or platinum. These metals are very durable and are suitable for everyday wear, so they are a great choice for the right hand ring.
If you are looking for a white metal, 18ct or 14ct white gold is more affordable than platinum. So if you are looking to keep within a budget, white gold may be a better choice for you than platinum. You can see more information about white gold and platinum on the white gold vs platinum page.
Other metals such as 10ct or 9ct gold, silver, or titanium are not generally recommended for right hand rings.
If you are planning to wear your right hand ring most of the time, that is, on a daily basis, it's important that you choose a gemstone that is strong, durable and that is able to stand up to daily wear.
Gemstones that are suitable for right hand rings are diamonds, sapphires (including pink sapphires and blue sapphires) and rubies. These gemstones are suitable because they are very hard and are able to stand up well to regular wear. They are much harder than other gemstones and are much more difficult to damage and scratch than other softer gemstones.
Diamond right hand rings are the most popular, though gemstone right hand rings including pink sapphire right hand rings and blue sapphire right hand rings are also increasing in popularity.
We do not recommend that certain types of semi-precious gemstones be worn in right hand rings. This is because some gemstones are more likely to scratch, chip or become damaged. For this reason, we do not recommend that opals, garnets, amethysts, topaz, peridots and citrines be worn every day. Naturally, you may still choose to wear these gemstones regularly, we simply believe that it's important that you know that these gemstones may have an increased chance of being damaged with regular or everyday wear.
When choosing your right hand ring width the only thing that you may like to consider is the the length of your fingers.
For ladies with petite fingers, a very wide ring may look a little too heavy on your hand. In that case, a width of more than approximately 6mm may be getting too wide for you.
For ladies with longer fingers, your options are entirely open - you can choose whichever width you like.
As long as your right hand ring is comfortable to wear, you can choose whichever width appeals to you.
One of the great things about the right hand ring is that there is often a more diverse range of ring designs available in right hand rings, than there are for engagement rings.
This is partly because engagement ring designs are often caught up in tradition, what your mum chose, what the guy likes and all the other factors that influence an engagement ring design.
Fortunately when it comes to right hand rings, the choice is all yours!
Although there are many unique right hand ring designs to choose from, there are a few themes that you may notice with some right hand ring styles.
The design of the right hand ring will normally be quite different to the engagement ring designs.The width of your right hand ring is entirely a matter of personal preference. Rather than having one large diamond or gemstone, right hand rings often incorporate multiple diamonds and gemstones.
The width of the ring will often be a little wider.
The alignment of the gemstones will often be vertical along the finger, or horizonal across the finger, as compared to the single gemstone in the center of the band which is common with engagement rings.
Right hand rings can also be more extravagant in their design than many engagement ring styles.
The only tip regarding the design of your right hand ring is that you should choose a right hand ring style that suits your lifestyle.
If you are an executive or in retail sales your options are almost endless.
If on the other hand, you are a preschool teacher, you may need to consider a more practical right hand ring design that sits lower on your finger so that it won't catch too easily.
So now that you know what to look for in your right hand ring design, it's time to choose your right hand ring.
