Resin nowadays means any liquid that will solidify into something with the consistency of enamel or other such hard substances. Therefore, if you’re wondering what a resin ring is, it is at its core a ring that has been produced as a result of a gooey liquid that eventually solidifies into a see-through and solid resin, and showcases the many wonders and treasures that are placed inside, ranging from glowing shards to sparkles to breath-taking scenes of nature. The theme of nature features heavily within resin rings, so if you have ever found yourself captivated by scenes of sunsets and splendid seas, then resin rings are no doubt a perfect match for you.
Why are they special? Many would say that the most remarkable feature about many resin rings is that they cannot be replicated. Each takes its own individual and unique form, and no craftsmen, no matter how skilled they may be, can get two resin rings to be directly identical. Instead, the scene, the beauty, the smooth and sharp edges on your resin ring, cannot be found on anyone else’s, which is part of the reason they are so appealing to so many; your resin ring is yours, and will always be unique to you (just make sure you don’t take it off and forget about where you put it!). Aside from that, you truly only need to take one look at resin rings to see why they stand out a mile from their competition; they don’t offer expensive jewels and hefty price tags, but they offer an entire world, an entire scene, a portrait to gaze at in awe.
Whilst a lot of high-end jewellery is the product of impressive skill and effort, there is no doubt that resin rings are particularly stunning pieces of art. You can choose between varieties of shades, as well as which flower/s you want to feature in your ring. It could be a flower that has a particular emotional significance for you, or perhaps a flower that you have always admired from afar. We all know that there are countless sapphire, opal, gold, diamond rings, and however coveted they may be they can run the risk of becoming cliché – resin rings are out of the ordinary, and the beauty of them is that even if you encounter others who take a liking to resin rings, their collection could be wildly different to yours, i.e. theirs feature autumnal shades and wooden bases, whereas your collection might feature waterfalls and blossoms – the resin rings that you own and wear will reflect the person you are and will be individual and striking rather than generic. You’ll likely never have to fear about needing a conversation starter again if you’re wearing one of these rings!

How are they made?
Resin rings are made by pouring resin that can solidify and harden (usually after a period of 24-48 hours) into a mould. Whilst the resin is still gooey and therefore malleable the decorations and colouring are added to the ring, and these will feature in the finished piece. It is at this stage where small flowers, crystals, shards and different dyes can be added in and manipulated to give all kind of effects and create natural scenes within the ring.
The resin itself can have a variety of appearances, from being a solid colour to being ombre to being translucent, depending on what the craftsmen are trying to achieve. Once the resin has solidified it cannot be internally modified, though of course it can still be polished and neatened from the outside. The resin ring can be worn as it is or can sit on a wooden base. Either way, to finish the ring, it must be sanded and smoothed down, after which extra coats of polish can be added to give the ring an extra shine. If the resin ring is one that can glow in the dark, that feature would now be tested out in a dim room to see if truly dazzles as you would want it to. Once the ring is preened and polished, there is nothing left to do but wear it, admire it and treasure it!
How to wear them/ which outfits and social situations: It’s difficult to envision a setting where resin rings don’t belong – they can add beauty to any moment and memory, to every picture and every pose. Because resin rings often feature some element of nature, it is only natural that they would go very well with summery and flowery clothes, but rest assured if you are feeling more of a plain and simple vibe, resin rings will still spark up your look! They will not particularly clash with any form of clothing, and you can pick and choose the shade of resin ring that you wear depending on the colour scheme of your outfit. They complement any occasion well, during more sombre moments they are a reminder of the beauty of life, and yet still the passage of time – nature always reminds us that that which comes must go. During some of the more exhilarating and exciting moments in your life, be that a wedding, a vacation or a graduation, it will add sparkle to your look and serve as a memento of some of the best moments of your life. Rest assured, resin rings will likely be the part of your collection that are the most stunning and vibrant, and you’ll never get tired of their charm and beauty, not even after gazing at the wonders inside them for the hundredth time.
