Pearls of Wisdom
Wedding project ideas and style how-tos for brides, bridal jewelry designers and wedding planners.
Today's most fashion-conscious brides are putting a ring on it--a right-hand ring that is--in addition to their engagement and wedding rings for the big day. A right-hand ring gives brides-to-be another way to stylishly express themselves, adding drama, special meaning or a pop of color and personality to wedding looks. Right-hand ring styles can range from large and sparkly cocktail rings, to colored-stone statements, to elegant metal or beaded bands. These rings can be worn on any finger, depending on what a bride fancies, and are hands down the bridal jewelry of the moment.
