Also known as memory or tea rings, midi rings are rings that you wear at the top of your finger, midway between the tip of the finger and the first knuckle. Although the style goes back to Medieval times, when they signified one being wealthy enough to not have to do much manual work, midi rings have become the “it” statement in accessories just within the past year.
Stylish and stack-able, midi rings offer a new and exotic way to adorn fingers. They are usually tiny and elegant, but there are no strict rules- they can be larger if desired. Whether worn alone or paired with traditional, below the knuckle rings, these rings are sure to grab attention and accentuate long fingers and polished finger nails. Midi rings are part of the larger trend of moving away from big, bold jewelry to smaller, more detailed and delicate pieces.
To rock the midi, you don’t have to go out and buy any special type of ring- just buy rings that you like a few sizes down from your normal ring size. Like bangles for the fingers, feel free to layer them and wear one (or a few!) on each finger. Stars such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Heidi Klum, Miley Cyrus and Angelina Jolie have all been seen sporting the look.
