If you’re one of those ladies who loves to pile on the accessories, the mid-finger ring trend may be for you! Perfect for creating an opulent layered look, mid-finger rings are an excellent way to show off both a beautiful hand and all of your favorite jewelry. Though the fashion industry hasn’t yet coined a singular term for this particular trend (Seriously–are they called high-knuckle rings? Over-the-knuckle rings? Knuckle rings? Mid-knuckle rings? Memory rings? WHAT?!) the look of a ring worn on the upper half of your finger instead of the lower one is definitely a statement-making one.
Accessory trends are often some of the easiest to adopt as they trend not to require much extra thought or money to embrace–everything is on a smaller scale. The mid-finger ring is no different! These extra-small accessories provide a dose of old-world charm and add intrigue and whimsy to what could be an otherwise uniform jewelry game. Styles range from super simple and dainty to shapely cut-outs to scaled-down bling. In my opinion, all of these iterations are unusually magical and romantic, but also really accessible.
Looking to rock this trend? Anything goes! Midi rings look awesome in a stack, along side another ring, or completely alone. There aren’t any hard-and-fast rules–just play around until you find the perfect combination of jewelry to compliment your mood. Since this style does tend to draw attention to your upper fingers, however, make sure those nails are in excellent shape! A great manicure is always in style, and the knuckle ring is an ideal way to showcase a hot new color or alluring shape. Pick one up on Etsy, a vintage or thrift store, or simply dig through your old jewelry in search of an tiny, discarded piece. You never know what gem you could come across!
