Dressing is an art
Jewellery can be chosen depending on one’s personality, unique style, or taste. However, for some people finding the right pieces of jewellery can be cumbersome. Someone once said, “Just like clothing, jewellery needs to be right fit.” Yeah, right, because it’s personal. Here are some hints to help you select jewellery according to your style, body type and age. After all, dressing is an art and you are never fully clothed without your jewellery.
People with wide fingers can go for medium to thick bands. Small, round, oval and heart shaped stones work perfectly fine on small hands.

People with big knuckles can consider the thicker bands which divert attention from the finger to the ring. This is the art of embracing your shape, even if it is just your fingers.
