There is a new trend going around.
It’s a combination of traditional wrap rings made out of some form of metal like silver of gold.
Silver and gold are metals by the way. Not talking about steel.
But you can also get gold plated one.
What You Can See By Keeping Your Eyes Open
Now the reason I bring this up is because I was walking around the mall the other day, looking at what’s trending and checking out what the younger girls were wearing and buying. It’s a way to get in touch with the younger generation and to be aware of what’s out there.
One thing that was common was that they were all wearing wrap around rings.
I didn’t take much notice at first, but there seemed to be something different.
Usually, wrap rings are solid, and feature lots of bands to give the sensation of a pattern wrapping around the finger.
But several I saw were not this type. In fact, they were quite large, flat and sparkled under the lights of the shopping mall. I took the courage to talk to some of the girls wearing the ring and asked them what they were.
I was surprised when they mentioned they were the best ceramic wrap rings they’ve ever had.
This is something that isn’t difficult to make but has a lot of variety because of the way ceramicists can create their very own custom designs.
There were round ceramic shapes, squares, ovals etc.
Lots of colors depending on the glaze and the ring were gold plated.
Nothing fancy really.
But the cool factor was that the band was fully adjustable. The great thing about being a one size fits all band is that you can wear it on any finger instead of just being limited to one finger. So there were some girls who were wearing two on each hand.
Looked very nice indeed.
Truly a Fashion Trend in the Making?
So that’s the trend and it seems like it will continue to grow as these rings are not very expensive.
Probably about $20 to $30 each depending on the size.
Now how is this different to the other rings?
Younger females aren’t interested in fine jewelry like grown up women. It’s different.
With the younger demographic, it’s more about setting a trend and looking good. It’s a fashion statement.
Now compare that to the older woman who wears jewelry not just for fashion, but to show status and for self satisfaction. It’s a self esteem thing.
It’s still early and I may be looking at a small sample, but the potential is there. Especially for people who are wanting to start a business. It’s a quick and simple ceramic design that they can produce.
No wheel throwing needed as its hand molded designs. Unlike cups or bowls or pots which requires much more work, the ring shapes can be like pendants.
Have you seen anything like these?
If so let me know. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
