Sterling silver dangle and charm rings

by EmpressFelicity

If you like wearing charm bracelets, then charm rings might also be for you - here are some great sterling silver charm rings to buy

Charm bracelets have enjoyed renewed popularity in recent years. But another hot trend that you may not be aware of is the charm ring - a plain or jewel-encrusted band with either a hole built into it or a loop soldered to the top, allowing the wearer to attach one (or several) charms that dangle off the loop and move as your hands move. Rings like this are very tactile and the great thing about them is that you can choose the charms to suit your personality, or maybe even have birthstone charms or initial letter charms to represent members of your family. You can also stack several charm rings together on one finger for an even bigger impact. 

The capsules below and right show sterling silver charm rings and charms that are all available to buy on Amazon, with a range of looks and prices to suit anyone who's into sterling silver jewellery.

Sterling silver dangle charm rings

The most popular type of charm ring is the so-called "dangle" ring, which comes preloaded - some dangle rings have just the one charm, while others have several in a row! Most of the dangle charm rings you can buy consist of a simple band with one or more semi-circular loops at the top, one per charm. Or you may get two or more charms dangling off a single loop. With this sort of ring, the narrowness of the band - combined with the simplicity of the loop design - allow you to stack two or more rings together, if that's where your fancy lies!

Sterling silver bead charm rings

One alternative to the loop sort of design is the charm bead ring. If you love bead charm bracelets by Pandora, Chamilia etc., then this could be for you. The one shown here on the right is a Lovelinks one by Aagaard. They recommend buying a ring that's half a size larger than you normally take, because the bead itself tends to take up space when the ring's worn on your finger. Rings of this type tend to be quite a bit more pricey than the dangly loop type of ring, but the good thing about charm bead rings is that you can change the beads to go with your mood/outfit!

Adding extra charms to a dangle ring

If you've bought a dangle ring and want to add some more charms to it, by all means go for it! There are a couple of things worth bearing in mind, however. For one thing, you don't want the charm to be too large - up to half or maybe three quarters of an inch max is about right; any bigger and it will probably do you an injury every time it hits your hand! You also need to bear in mind the size of any charms that are already on the ring, and you will need to consider how you're going to attach any extra charms. Most charms that you buy come with some sort of attaching clasp/ring, whether a plain jump ring, a split ring or a lobster clasp. A lobster clasp is quite chunky/obvious, and therefore won't look right on a charm ring. It's probably best to buy a charm with an unsoldered jump ring or a split ring, and if the jump/split ring turns out to be too big, replace it with a smaller one. I have therefore listed some sterling silver split rings and jump rings in the capsule on the right, just in case you want to stock up. As with a lot of things in life, there is a trade-off between convenience and looks - the jump rings will look better (because they're less bulky than the split rings), but they will need more patience and a pair of pliers (or two pairs) when it comes to attaching the charm!
