Simple, wide bands were always reserved for the guys. My wedding band is actually a flat ring, only 5mm thick, but I have loved it enough that even though it was supposed to be a “placeholder” band (we got married on the fly and had no money, so we just bought silver rings for $25) that I’ve worn for nearly 5 straight years. Never. Taking. It. Off.
Me and rings have always had a dubious relationship. I always tend to lose them. Shy away from making statements. Buy spikey ones that end up hurting the people I shake hands with. (Sorry) I’ll get overwhelmed with stones, and inevitably just give up and go with something super simple. Which brings me to the tube ring. Now, Maison Martin Margeila has had tube rings in various iterations over the last few years, and in response to the super delicate trend, I’m seeing a nice mix of bold tube rings with delicate rings, or just bold rings standing alone for a simple, yet elegant statement. So I went to H&M and picked up a small pack of tube rings to give it a try (pictured to the left with my wedding and engagement ring). I guess it’s really about finding the right size, going up a half size can give your fingers a little room to breathe. Or if you can find perforated tube rings, even better!
