A Short History
The most primitive statement rings belong to Egypt. Thick rings were part of the jewellery collection of the princesses of those days. That said, the statement rings that the Romans wore were embellished using big and attractive gemstones.
In the middle of the 20th century, the statement jewellery began to hit the fashion streets.
In the USA and Canada, ladies began wearing the statement rings in the 1920s. Independent women who attended parties during those periods wore bold cocktail rings.
How to Wear Statement Rings
You can wear statement rings on the ring or middle finger of the right hand to make a statement! Some people ensure that the statement ring they wear does not take the wedding ring's attention away on their finger.
