Delicate wire rings are so fun and easy to wear. You can stack them, wear them on multiple fingers or pair them with other rings. Another bonus - they are easy to DIY! So if you've always wanted a diamond ring but don't have the cash, here's a clever way to wear some bling without spending major bucks.
- 20 or 22 gauge wire
- Round nose jewelry pliers
- Wire cutters
1. Cut the Wire
Cut a short piece of wire, one to two inches long.
2. Form the Center V Shape
With the round nose pliers, bend the center of the wire into a V shape. Keep the bottom tip of the V fairly pointed. Squeeze the wire together with your fingers if need to form the shape.
3. Bend the Sides
Using your finger and the pliers, bend the wire at a right angle at the top of the V shape. You can make the V as deep as you like!
4. Curl the Ends
On each side of the wire, curl the ends under and into a loop.
5. Repeat Steps 1 Through to 4
Make another ring to complete your diamond shape.
Wear Your Rings Two Ways
The rings look great facing both directions! Wear it like a diamond.
Or try it stacked.
