DOUBLE THE FUN
Get the party started with two-finger rings
WITH SPRING FESTIVITIES AND SUMMER WEDDINGS AROUND THE CORNER, it’s time to up your jewellery game. Playful and often intricate, two-finger rings or double-finger rings have been around for a few years now. This jewellery style first became popular five years ago, recalls Nadine McCarthy Kahane, founder and CEO of NYC-based Stone and Strand. “They allow for a bold design and we love them with a minimalist vibe sans embellishment that shows off its unique detailing,” says Kahane.
Double-finger rings — connected with metal, and occasionally with pearls or chains — are best worn on the middle and fourth finger for comfort. “We have seen this concept evolve into a trend in the jewellery industry,” says Hong-Kong based jeweller Narcisa Pheres, founder and creative director of Pheres. Inspired by the traditional Indian kundan two-finger ring, Pheres came up with her own modern interpretations. Her double-finger rings, open and closed versions, have often been spotted on Hollywood celebrities, such as Halle Berry and Mary J. Blige.
If you gravitate towards making a statement or just love to dress up your fingers, there are some inspiring designs that are as fabulous as they are ready to wear. We’ve round up some of the stunning double-finger rings that have caught our eye.
