So today I wanted to talk about square rings and how they can be comfortable and stylish. I have been designing rings that have four showing sides. Sometimes a little rounded and other times more flat. The neat thing about them is that they are actually very comfortable to wear. The band is thin between the fingers and the corners get quite a bit thicker. These types of rings don’t tend to spin around the finger and have a nice weight and feel to them. Square shank bands are a bit eye catching too since most people are use to seeing a round ring. Square rings although have flat sides on the outside, the inside of them are still round to slide onto the finger as a traditional round ring would. Here are a few examples of square rings (see image below).
The Loopy Celtic knot ring that you see below is packed with detail on both the inside and outside of the ring. Even though you don’t see the patterns on the inside while wearing the ring, just knowing that it’s there makes it cool. When someone wants to see it you take it off and show all the extras that come with this band. It can be worn as just a great stylish ring or even for a wedding band. My bands are not usually gender specific. Male or Female can wear them. Most of my patterned bands are a little wider than some people are use to. Around 8mm to 10mm wide. They are this wide so that a pattern can be made in greater detail. For thin bands the pattern has to stay simple, but I like how the wider bands can show lots of detail and they also have a nice weight to them. That’s something you want in a ring. Thin rings tend to bend and wear a lot faster, but a well made band will be thick enough to be comfortable yet strong enough that it won’t bend the first time you drop it or bump it. These rings are some of my favorites.
If you are ever looking for some unique style bands just check out my inventory. I’m about ready to swap out my wedding band to one of these. I also make them in 14k gold even when not listed on my site. Just ask for a quote if ever interested in a ring that is not in gold yet.
Well I love designing rings with patterns and as you can see I have a whole site dedicated to this. I design them in CAD software and that is like a master mold of that ring. I get inspired to create new designs by many ways. The usual way will be to just start building. I start playing around with different ideas and objects that I create until something works out. Yeah there are times I go back and look at old designs and I’m no longer happy with them. Those rings I don’t really know what to do with. They usually just sit there. Hopefully the better designs are the ones that over time I feel are still great designs. The better designs will stick around. I don’t believe in discontinuing rings. I would rather just keep an archive of all my rings and so they are always available even years down the road. Have you ever lost a ring and can’t get an original again? Well with me I’ll always keep the design available and if I accidentally remove it, just contact me and I’ll find it.
So that is a little bit about me and my designs. The square rings are my favorites right now so check them out and maybe there is something in there for you. :)
