Ringing in a new trend: Statement Rings

When it comes to any kind of jewelry in 2016, bigger is definitely considered better. This holds true especially in the case of statement rings. Gone are the days of small delicate looking barely noticeable bands around your fingers. These days, the fashion forward brigade can be seen sporting huge finger adornments in various shapes, sizes and designs. These attention-grabbing styles attract attention and compliments, adding flair to your traditional Indian outfit. They also draw attention to your perfect manicure and slender digits. Statement jewelry can be tough to pull off, especially when it comes to making it vibe with your other accessories. However, rings can be easy to wear and usually go well with almost any of your other jewelry pieces without creating a look that is over the top.

Internationally, designers Roberto Cavalli and Elie Saab showcased single statement rings in their fall winter 2016 collections, using them as a focal point of interest. Gucci designers had their models sporting multiple art deco inspired pieces together for a richer and more opulent look.

Historically these rings were called cocktail rings and were worn during the prohibition period of the 1920’s in America, which was a time of breaking barriers and setting new trends and society. In traditional Indian jewelry, Mughal kings and queens were both known to wear large rings adorning one or many of their fingers. Tribal Indian jewelry also has many examples of large statement rings, some of which have a mirror embedded in the center.

These days the styles and designs of statement rings are extremely varied. Some are traditional Indian pieces embedded with stones, pearls and other ornaments.

Traditional gold pieces are also popular, and many have ghungroos or tassels hanging from them. On the more modern side there are many styles with eighties influences, animal faces , flowers and large ornate stones. Knuckle-dusters, originally a part of punk and Goth jewelry, have also gained popularity. Many rings cover the entire length of a finger, and some are even spread over the entire width of your hand or more then one of your fingers. The versatility of statement rings makes them easy to reuse. You can wear the same piece casually to work or lunch, in the evening for dinner, to a party and even to a wedding. This makes it a good investment and value for money.

At Pookaari we have beautiful Kundaan statement rings, pearl adornments and larger then life funky wheel designed pieces by designer Preeti Mohan, Ragini Mittal and Sneha Rateria. Each of these pieces has received a great response and would make a fabulous addition to your jewelry box.  So go ahead and buy yourself a few statement rings, and revel in the stylish and fashion forward look they add to your outfit.

5 Jewellery Pieces Every Girl Must Get Her Hands On

The key to going from drab to fab is picking the right accessories. Here are the hottest pieces this summer. 

1. Statement Necklace – Every girl must own a couple of statement neckpieces. An important rule to follow is to keep the earrings simple while wearing a statement necklace. So wear a pair of minimal studs in the same colour as the necklace that you’re wearing. Bold necklaces are very fashionable at the moment. Make a statement in the boardroom with a statement necklace paired with a white cotton shirt and trousers. A funky alternative is to wear a statement necklace with a sari for work. It will make a serious statement for sure. You could also explore your punk side by wearing a necklace with spikes and stones. It’s edgy and very chic especially when worn with a linen dress for summer. 

2. Layered Pendants – Layering pendants is a very bohemian trend. This trend has been spotted at all fashion weeks across the globe. Wear turquoise and citrine coloured pendants with a white cotton midi dress to be summer ready. Another way to be a gypsy goddess is to wear a few pendant necklaces with a pair of jeans and a casual shirt.

3. Tassel Earrings – Tassels are trending on all runways the world over. An easy and quick way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe is to own a pair of tassel earrings. There are a few ways that you can flaunt tassel earrings. You can pair them with a pair of denim shorts and a funky tie and dye T-shirt to chill out at a pool party this summer. Another way to wear the tassel trend is to wear the earrings with a floral printed maxi dress for a summer party. Tassels for me mean freedom and summer is the perfect season to have fun with them.

4. Bold Blue Rings – Blue is the trendiest colour of the season. So why not buy a few bold rings in shades of blue? Turquoise, aqua and indigo are all fashionable colours right now. Wear a bold ring with a chikankari kurta and leggings for a day out with your family. Or wear these rings with a shift dress in navy or white for a movie date with your special someone.

5. Hand Harness – Besides rings, hand harnesses or haathphools are funky and fun. You’ll be insta-cool if spotted wearing a hand harness. There are a variety of haathphools that you can wear. A simple chain link hand harness worn with ripped jeans is a huge trend this season. An ethnic hand harness with a full-length skirt and a crop top will make you stand out in a crowd.
