Rings are pieces of jewellery almost as old as time itself. They are symbolic of many important things, and as such, are often some of the most important gifts ever given. Women’s rings in particular encapsulate many of these special and beautiful occasions. DiamondsByMe’s extensive and exclusive range is proud to be there for all your special moments.
The Ring: a long history in short
Evidence of rings themselves are believed to date back to as early as 2500 BC, and pieces have been found from all the ancient civilizations. Rings’ uses range from the decorative and ornamental; to being signs of wealth, marriage, status, membership or achievement.
In terms of women’s rings, these traditionally began life as wedding rings, worn on the fourth finger of the left hand to show that a woman was married. According to legend, this finger was chosen for a ring which symbolized love because it was believed to contain a vein which went directly to the heart - so-called the ‘vein of love’. While women’s rings don’t always symbolize relationship promises and milestones, to the minds of many, these are some of the most beautiful and meaningful pieces of jewellery a woman will ever wear.
Women’s rings and wedding rings are thought to have originated in ancient Egypt, with our modern customs of today tracing back to ancient Rome and Greece. Traditional metals and stones have gone through various trends; such as inventing new metals due to scarcity, and the popularization of diamonds in the 1800s. But one thing is for sure, whatever the ring, whatever the occasion, and whoever the wearer, women’s rings are some of the most beautiful pieces of jewellery she’ll ever wear.

Ladies Ring styles
Like people, rings have their own style and appearance. From classic to modern women’s rings, to Eternity rings and Halo rings, each has their own special characteristics.
At DiamondsByMe we offer a wide variety of women’s rings, which are categorized to make your mission of finding yourself the perfect ring easier.
For a ring that symbolizes certain memories, the Eternity ring is the one to choose. To celebrate your birthday, or perhaps that of your children, choose a birthstone ring featuring the stone of your birth month.
For ornate and intricate designs that remind you of a by-gone age, select one of our Pavé rings.
And for a perfect combination of precious metal and a gorgeous centre stone, complemented by a surrounding row of smaller stones, opt for a Halo ring.
Say forever with one of DiamondsByMe’s eternity rings. These pieces are traditionally given at relationship milestones and anniversaries but are really just for whenever it feels right to signify your connection. This everlasting bond is symbolized by a never-ending row of uniform diamonds, continuing around the outside of the band. If you want to have your eternity ring look fuller then check out our stacking rings, to add one or more rings to your ring, and create a completely different look each day.
Our eternity rings range from classic styles like the Nienke, where you can alternate between two stone colours, to intricate and playful designs like the Tessa and Floortje. The Ashley stackable ring makes for a very modern and exclusive ring.
For a very exclusive ring that has the word ‘statement’ written all over it, a Pavé ring will be a perfect choice. Each ring is set with rows of small stones right next to each other, making the ring capture the light in the most optimal way possible, like for instance our Macy and Emely rings. When adorned with a stunning large centre stone, this ring will surely catch anyone’s eye.
A halo is a natural phenomenon, of a light source surrounded by a soft circle of diffuse light. This same effect is captured in the ladies Halo ring. A round or oval centre stone is surrounded by one or several rows of smaller stones, meant to highlight the prominent large gemstone. These types of halo women’s rings are defined by their Art Deco appearance. DiamondsByMe has a beautiful selection of these rings available, which you can each alter to fit your personal style and taste.
Personalized rings for women
With our first-of-its-kind in the world online design and customization tools, you can make any of our rings your own - choosing the metal and stones to be exactly as you imagined and more. However, extra personal touches such as fingerprints, handwriting engraving, and initials are other innovative ways to create the perfect personalized rings for women.
