Koerber’s Trend Watch: Ballerina Rings

When Americans think of the 1930s and 1940s, we automatically envision scenes from the Dust Bowl, bread lines, and brave young soldiers marching off to war. However, despite the political climate and economic depression, these decades saw a shift in jewelry fashion toward bigger, bolder and more exciting designs than had ever been seen before.

Thanks to Hollywood’s golden age, women everywhere wanted fashion jewelry that reflected the glamour of the big screen, with eye-catching elements and fabulous facets. Among these trends were ballerina rings.

These cocktail or dinner rings are traditionally worn on the right hand and feature a large center gem surrounded by baguettes. The flaring baguettes call to mind a dancer’s whirling skirt – hence the name, ballerina rings.

Now, nearly 100 years later, this vintage trend is dancing its way back into our hearts and onto our hands. Doves, one of Hollywood’s favorite jewelry houses, has modernized the ballerina ring to grace the fingers of everyone from First Lady Michelle Obama to the hottest stars of the silver screen. Our stunning topaz and diamond right-hand ring perfectly encapsulates the updated elegance of this vintage style. Another example is our sapphire and diamond fashion ring, which recalls glamorous starlets and softly lit romantic scenes.

One of our favorite modern takes on this style is our morganite and diamond ring from Doves. This updated version of a classic ballerina ring evokes a bygone era while speaking to today’s fashion trends. Although designed as a right-hand ring, we could definitely see this as an alternative to a traditional engagement ring!

Whether you’re looking to treat yourself to something sparkly or you want to show your special someone just how much you care, a ballerina ring is the idyllic feminine accessory to grace any right hand. We invite you to come take a stroll through our comfy storeroom to enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate and peruse our gorgeous selection of ballerina rings.
