Chunky Ring Buying Guide

Chunky rings are, as their name implies, large and therefore striking. Chunky rings are perfect for livening up a conservative outfit and complementing an evening look. Find out more about these fancy rings that incorporate large gems and bold designs by learning about the different ring materials as well as how to size for the ring.

 

Chunky Ring Designs

As chunky rings are large, they can feature quite bold and visually striking designs. Some rings are even oversized, covering other fingers or part of your hand, while some chunky rings go on two fingers at once. Metal chunky rings typically include intricate filigree patterns, while plastic rings are simply huge and colourful. The details on rings can be quite large or small. In the latter case, there are generally many tiny details on one ring. The designs also vary for men's and women's rings, with simpler designs for men.

 

Chunky Ring Materials

Common ring materials include metals such as precious gold and silver, durable stainless steel, and brass. However, chunky rings that serve more as fashion statements than investments could also be from wood for a natural look or even colourful plastic for a casual and fun style. The stones on chunky rings can also be from inexpensive plastic, while semi-precious and precious gemstones are common, especially on silver and gold rings.

 

Chunky Ring Sizing Guide

Sizing for chunky rings follows the same guidelines as for any other ring. Ensuring the perfect fit is essential because otherwise you could lose the ring, if it is too loose, or cut off the circulation to your finger, if it is too tight. UK ring sizing uses letters from A to Z, from the smallest to the largest, each letter denoting a certain finger diameter.

Note that ring sizes may vary slightly by manufacturer, so be sure to consult the ring sizing chart for the ring you are interested in. You should also consider purchasing a ring slightly larger than your size if the ring has a wide band. In either case, always double-check the ring size before purchasing. However, if you find the perfect ring that does not quite fit, you could have a jeweller fix the size for you.
