Whether it is an oversized cocktail ring featuring a huge colored gemstone, a wrist adorned with a cascade of shimmering bracelets, or the latest in chandelier earrings, women are constantly searching for the piece(s) of jewelry that will set them apart from the crowd. The pieces that are currently garnering the most attention in this category of eye-catching bling are bold, diamond-encrusted rings with wide bands. How wide are they? They are so wide that they can take up the entire space between the knuckles and first finger joint (or the proximal phalanx, for those with medical degrees). Whether the sides are convex, concave, or straight-sided, these rings sport plenty of gold, platinum, and diamonds.

When customizing a wide band ring to complement your personal taste, consider which precious metal and which gemstones are perfect for you. Another way to achieve a wide band design is to blend a variety of interchangeable rings that can be stacked to create a sparkling and colorful fashion statement.
