Consider These Dainty, Minimalist Rings For Your Finger Stack

Put a ring on it.

Chunky, statement jewellery have their time and place, for days when you want to go bold or go home. But for simple pieces that you can wear every day, dainty designs are the way to go. They are versatile, timeless and add little touches of elegance to your outfit.

Here, we’re shining the spotlight on understated, delicate rings in particular. Although smaller and less showy than necklaces and bracelets, they inject a subtle glimmer to your fingers and add texture to your ensemble. Too unassuming for your liking? You can wear a bunch at the same time to make a statement.

The Ordinary Co. Wave ring, S$6.90
A homegrown label that’s known for its classic designs with a twist, this ring sports an interesting wave pattern that defers from the regular ring silhouettes. Great for someone who prefers something a little less predictable, we recommend stacking three of them on one finger for a cool effect. Stone and Strand ultra fine 14-karat gold ring, US$60.36 (S$81.74) from Net-a-Porter
Handcrafted from 14-carat gold, this thin band ring from Stone and Strand is as simple and pared down as it gets. Its unpretentious silhouette means you can wear it three ways — alone, stacked or layered with chunkier rings — without it looking OTT. Isabel Marant set of five gold-tone rings, US$68.14 (S$92.28) from Net-a-Porter
Whether you choose to wear them individually or in a complete set of five, this Isabel Marant set is both chic and value for money. The tiny balls act as unique accents to the simple gold-tone brass band/cuff ring design. We reckon that these would look good with a feminine white lace dress. Pandora Shine dazzling butterflies ring, S$249
This stunning cuff ring, which is part of Pandora’s latest Spring 2019 collection that taps on the butterfly motif, shows two brilliant butterflies in flight. Wear it with a blazer and trousers to contrast its feminine silhouette. Grace Lee Whisper 14-karat gold emerald ring, US$175.99 (S$) from Net-a-Porter
If you love the imperfect beauty of the Japanese wabi-sabi aesthetic, get this gold band from Grace Lee. Hammered from 14-karat gold, the uneven edges of the ring is offset by the glimmering 0.01 carat emerald. This creation would look chic alongside an off-shoulder forest green dress and ankle boots. Sarah & Sebastian Fragment gold diamond ring, US$292.25 (S$395.78) from Net-a-Porter
Said to emulate the shape of fragmented petals, this abstract-shaped ring from Sarah & Sebastian comes adorned with a 0.0235-carat trillion-cut diamond that’s unevenly set to play up the rugged and raw feel of the piece. It’s unique and also perfect for someone who likes a dainty piece that comes with a little bling. Monica Vinader Fiji bar adjustable friendship diamond ring, S$525
Sporting a chain instead of a solid band and a small, sliding ball that allows you to adjust up to size T, this is definitely no ordinary ring. We love that the piece is elevated with the inclusion of 40 set pavé diamonds totalling 0.13 carats. Gift it to a friend or stack a few for a quirky effect. Wwake Three Points gold, opal and diamond ring, US$441.87 (S$598.40) from Net-a-Porter
Upgrade your typical gold bands with this Wwake creation that comes studded with iridescent opals and a diamond totalling 0.09 carats. Let this ring shine by pairing it with darker outfits such as a navy jumpsuit and mules. Ileana Makri 18-karat gold diamond eternity ring, US$1,512.55 (S$2,048.36) from Net-a-Porter
Add sparkle onto your fingers with this 18-karat gold ‘Thread’ ring that boasts 0.28-carats of brilliant-cut diamonds. Cartier Clash de Cartier ring small model, pink gold, S$2,920
Cartier’s newest Clash de Cartier line sports tough spikes to imbue a rocker, edgy vibe — a fascinating departure from its typically feminine and sleek styles such as the Love and Juste un Clou ranges. Play up your cool girl panache by pairing this modern creation with a denim jacket and distressed jeans. Boots included.
