Top 12 different types of rings

Jul 13, 2022

From traditional mother's rings, signet rings, and '70s mood rings, well-established jewellery houses are creating unique rings for everyone who wishes to admire their hands all day long. 

STACKABLE BANDS

Stacking multiple rings on the same finger is a unique way to add style to your ring, making it more interesting.

BIRTHSTONE RING

Birthstone rings are assigned to broadcast your birth month. These rings are made of different gemstones and used as personalized jewellery.

MOTHER’S RING

This ring constitutes varieties of birthstone rings worn by mothers and grandmothers. Some pieces also have names engraved beside them.

COCKTAIL RING

These are big-styled coloured gemstone rings that symbolize the Prohibition Era's wealth and power. They are worn at special events when you choose to overdo your evening attire.

SIGNET RING

Signet rings were traditionally adorned by men of influence. They were associated with the status symbol of wealth and power. These rings can be customized in different ways and offer the flexibility of engraving initials, special symbols or even a family crest.

CLADDAGH RING

The Claddagh ring originated in Ireland, where it was used as a wedding ring during medieval times. There are three significant symbols in Claddagh's rings - A heart that signifies love, two hands symbolizing friendship, and a crown that stands for loyalty. 

NUGGET RING

Nugget rings are traditional gold rings and adorned as men’s jewellery. These gold bands feature a rough rocky texture on the top, usually crafted in yellow gold and designed to look like a raw gold nugget.

PROMISE RING

Promise rings symbolize commitment in a relationship – the promise to remain loyal and faithful. They are used as pre-engagement rings.

ANNIVERSARY RING

Anniversary rings can be a gold, silver, diamond, or other gemstone band. These rings celebrate a milestone anniversary.

CLUSTER RING

Cluster rings contain one primary stone in the centre of the ring surrounded by tiny pieces of other stones. These stones could be diamond, ruby, or emerald.

ETERNITY BAND

Also known as infinity bands, eternity bands are of precious metals with a steady line of identical-sized diamonds or gemstones that symbolize eternal love. 

GIMMEL RING

This type of ring dates back to the Elizabethan era and was initially known as joint rings. The band has 2-3 links that hook together to form a small circle.
