Why Simple Rings Are Anything But Boring

Many pieces of jewelry are versatile, but the simple ring may be the biggest chameleon of all. It’s most likely the piece you’ll never take off, and, just like a wedding ring, it becomes a second skin. Simple, cute rings open the door for as much adornment of the fingers as fit the task at hand. For an at-home Zoom call, maybe wear one or two, but for a socially-distanced coffee or cocktail, some stacking never hurt.

And, while you’re maybe thinking simple means boring, in reality it’s quite the opposite. Jeweler and Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist Eva Zuckerman of Eva Fehren agrees: “I think the most interesting and successful attention-grabbing pieces are the most simple. It’s a beautiful thing when a minimal, simple design packs a lot of punch.”

Lacquer, gemstones, engraved metals full of texture, and perfect coils are all simple and work just as well on one finger as on ten. The simplicity of the design makes a statement that is wonderfully versatile.

Plain Bands

Not just reserved for a wedding ring, a minimalistic band is the quintessential simple ring.

Coil Rings

Wrapping the finger, the even weight and symmetry of the coil ring makes it a great option for something more interesting but still clean and straightforward.
