Must Have: Dainty Rings

November 03, 2015


Big cocktail rings and multi-carat stunners are always fun to wear, but as the colder season approaches, smaller, more delicate rings are being stacked and worn in lieu of one statement piece. Coincidentally this trend goes hand in hand with the ever approaching glove season very well.


Whatever your personal style is, your style story can be told with stacks of rings that can be personalized to your own unique taste.

This season, our must have piece is the dainty ring stack. Mix metals and textures, pair the new with the old, create contrast, and as always, make it significant.

Like your favorite layered necklaces or shiny stacked rings, a statement ear cuff can really elevate even the simplest of outfits. It may feel a bit daunting at first, but these bold, yet super-wearable ear cuffs will soon take the place of your daily go-to hoop in no time.
It’s not your average piece of bijoux - and that’s exactly why we love it.
From a jewel-encrusted single snake earring to a bedazzled climber, these picks will have you putting down the look-at-me necklace for the statement ear cuff instead.



Geometric jewelry is on the rise and taking shape in the form of angular rings, sculptural ear cuffs, and rectangular motif bracelets. With a nod to the classic lines of the art-deco movement, but with a minimalistic edge- designers are fully embracing the trend and giving their pieces a clean and polished look.
From t-shirts and jeans to the classic LBD, the beauty of these shapes is that they match with pretty much anyone’s existing wardrobe. Who knew mathematical shapes could be so chic?






To show off your best angle, shop our favorite picks of the season.

There’s a reason why Big chose a 5 carat black diamond stunner- aptly named the ‘Carrie’ ring- instead of any other typical ring out there. The color black in and of itself symbolizes power, strength, certainty and passion. Black diamond rings are the physical mark of a couple’s love, passion, and strength of their commitment to one another.


The conventional approach to engagement ring shopping is simple. You can go to any jewelry store and browse hundreds, if not thousands, of white diamond solitaire engagement rings. There will undoubtably be one that you may think is the typical idea of pretty. However, why not embrace your inner Carrie Bradshaw and opt for an intriguing alternative instead? Black diamonds are a sophisticated statement and express a confident attitude. 


Finely handcrafted in 18 ct. white gold, the ‘Carrie’ ring, a limited edition 5 carat round-cut black diamond is accented by 72 round brilliant cut natural diamonds.

With weddings going non-traditional, Instagram hashtags and all- Isn't it time the engagement ring got an update too? Alternative engagement rings are all the rage. Asymmetric, multi-colored gems, open settings, encrusted multi-bands, and textured metals are just some of the micro-trends popping up in the wedding world these days.
To some extent, everyone's favorite rule-breaker Carrie Bradshaw pioneered this trend, when Big gave Carrie our 5ct. round cut black diamond set in white gold in Sex and the City 2- but you may be asking yourself, Would a black diamond work on a real life girl?
The answer? A resounding Y-E-S. 
From sparkly stackable bands to unique shapes and sizes set in gold, there are plenty of options for even the most discerning bride-to-be.





It girls everywhere know that stacking is an artform. Layering too many colors, textures, and sizes of jewelry can be the downfall of any planned or not-so-planned outfit. Instead of piling on the jewels- wrap your head around these 3 do's for stacking your jewelry like any It girl.


1. Keep it simple

Whether your go-to outfit is jeans and a t-shirt or a girly dress, the key component to looking put together, is to keep your accessories harmonious. If your neckline calls for a necklace-or three, get the layered look by choosing necklaces that are dainty in scale and graduate in length like how Julie from Sincerely Jules stacks hers. Stacking one chunky necklace on top of the other can look messy- instead look for necklaces smaller in size, but with their own interesting details. 



2. Mix it up

Don't be afraid to mix up your look by pairing a few bracelets in various tones, you give instant visual impact to your look. It's all about keeping the items looking uniform without becoming boring. Instead of stacking 8 of the same gold bangles up your arm- aim for 2, and then pair them with a silver cuff or statement watch. For real impact, opt for bracelets in varying shapes and sizes. 



3. Make it meaningful

Finally, when stacking jewelry it's important to learn that highlighting one or two areas- as opposed to all 4, can really make a larger statement in a more meaningful way. Stack a few diamond bands in varying metals on one hand, and one larger in scale on the other, spread out your bands by wearing one on each finger, or experiment with shapes and lines and combine vertical rings with horizontal ones. Adding an ear-cuff with your look is another great way to get that "stacked" effect without going overboard. Our Lightening ear cuff is streamlined enough to go with almost any look.  





If your current jewelry game is minimal to non-existent, consider some key pieces to add to your everyday look. Elegant, yet still minimal-minded accessories will add visual interest to your outfit- whether it’s your go-to work look or night out in the city. The flash of a diamond at your neckline, some stacked rings, and a few thin bracelets on the wrist are just a few options that even the most simple of outfits could use.



Here are a few pieces that make a statement without going over the top.
