Most Original Rings of 2012

Put a ring on it: the Jewellery Editor's choice of the best rings from 2012. From fantastical miniature landscapes to flawless stones, here are the winners.


Rings are particularly pleasing jewels as they are on full view and you can actually see it on your hand from different angles, all day long. Earrings, necklaces and even bracelets - never mind tiaras - are barely visible unless you catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror or someone's sunglasses. Which is why rings are my favourite jewel. Invariably I find myself gravitating towards them, slipping them on my finger to examine them from every possible position I can twist my hand into. Looking back on a year of rings, here are some of my favourites from the many thousands I have popped on my finger this year. Oh, to have them all! Sit back and enjoy the show.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
