If you’re big on bling then you’ll delight at the latest jewellery trend that’s taken the UK bloggersphere by storm. Stacking rings, thumb rings, we’ve seen them all but now the mid-ring, also known as the midi ring, is sweeping into our favourite stores and into our jewellery boxes.
This unique take on the nation’s favourite accessory started on the streets of New York City and sees bands sitting just above the knuckle on any finger, on any hand and has become the latest greatest way to decorate your digits.
Midi rings have even been spotted on the fingers of celebrities, including our favourite good girl gone bad, Rihanna, everyone’s favourite fashionista Beyoncé and even Kristen Stewart has been spotted sporting a midi ring. As someone who only wears one ring every day of the week, even I love this new trend.
The sky is truly the limit when it comes to midi rings. Do you prefer something plain and simple? Then a delicate gold band will rest perfectly on your knuckle to give your outfit an edgy look. These intricately crafted rings are ideal if you’re new to the ring trend and are trying to ease yourself into it. If you’d rather go bold or go home, then there’s plenty of midi rings for you too that satisfy all fashion desires.
But the thing I adore the most about the midi ring trend, is how easily they transcend from daytime to evening time. A plain gold band from Urban Outfitters is the perfect finishing touch to any day outfit whilst a large statement midi ring from ShopBop can provide a pop of colour, make you stand out in a crowd and the centre of attention as everyone clambers to know where you bought your eye-catching accessories.
Do you like to stack your rings? No problem! Adorning your fingers in three or even more midi rings is becoming the must-do trend of the summer so let your imagination run wild and create your perfect outfit from the fingers up!
Another great benefit to this trend is that it allows you to dig out those old rings that you didn’t have the heart to throw away even though they were miles too small for you. And if you’re ever rummaging around in a cute little thrift shop and find a delightful vintage ring buried under fur stoles and ’50’s skirts, then you don’t have to lace it down in disappointment, as it can now be worn as a midi ring!
If you’re on a budget then don’t let that stop you from flaunting this latest bling craze! Prices for midi rings start from just £.750 from Topshop and £10 for a 3 pack from Urban Outfitters.
Forget about single statement rings the size of brass knuckles, get on top of the latest fashion trend and embellish your extremities with delicate strings gold and silver.
