Wearing Success: How Right Hand Rings Showcase Women's Empowerment

Right hand rings have transcended their status as mere accessories, evolving into extraordinary symbols of women's empowerment. No longer just an adornment, they represent the embodiment of personal success, independence, and self-worth. Right hand rings have found their place as powerful talismans that celebrate the remarkable milestones and achievements women have accomplished on their unique journeys. Wondering how this movement started? 

  • As early as the 19th and early 20th centuries, suffragettes in the US and Europe began wearing rings on their right hands as a symbol of their fight for women's rights and empowerment.
  • Traditionally, rings worn on the left hand's ring finger were primarily associated with marriage and engagement. However, as societal norms changed, women began to reclaim the right hand as a symbol of their autonomy and financial independence.
  • In the early 2000s, diamond company De Beers launched a marketing campaign targeting women, encouraging them to buy diamond rings for their right hands as a celebration of their independence and personal success.
  • This rise of right hand rings in the past decade parallels the increasing roles and achievements of women in society. As women gained more independence, pursued education, and excelled in their careers, they sought to commemorate their accomplishments with jewelry worn on their right hands. Many influential female celebrities and public figures started wearing right hand rings.
  • Today's right hand ring trend aligns with the broader movement of self-expression and individuality where women choose jewelry that represents their unique style, preferences, and personal stories.

At the end of the day, it comes down to the excitement of being able to buy a beautiful piece of jewelry that is not only meaningful but that can be worn all the time. Embrace your own empowerment. You've earned it!
