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.
