Bold and simple, this season’s bar rings bring an unexpected edge to your otherwise-ordinary finger adornment. While most trend toward sleek and refined, a handful of designs clearly take their inspiration from old fashioned brass knuckles, bringing a hard edge of streetwise punk to the look. 

On the daintier end, Elizabeth and James (far left) offers thin, sparkling designs that cover two fingers in simple narrow bars. Most styles are oriented horizontally, but a few run vertically, creating a sharp metallic “spike” that rests right on your finger. 

Designer Jules Smith offers an array of “Knuckle Rings” (right) that are likewise thin in profile, but designed to stack for maximum impact. Some are plain while others incorporate a bit of texture or a set of sparkling stones. Make your own combination for a signature look. 

Meanwhile Erica Anenberg’s “Twosome” rings (middle)bring a tougher edge to the look, with substantial metal bars and rows of stones. Some of her designs even feature short messages or words that stretch across the setting, tempering these powerful pieces with a little bit of play. Fresh, tough, and exciting, bar rings are the new way to dress up your fingers with panache and polish!
