Accessories are essential for creating a fashion statement. However, not everyone can pull off enormous cocktail rings in every color conceivable – sometimes you simply want to keep it simple. But, it’s not always easy to find a ring that matches our style on the market.
Moreover, while rings are a fun way to dress up any outfit, there’s no need to break the bank by purchasing a ring from a jewelry store – why not build your own instead? Here are some of the very best DIY rings you can make without much hassle.
1. Beaded Chain Ring
This basic ring has a lovely, minimalist appearance – and it’s extremely easy to build! To begin, simply gather some gold chain, wire, and a few beads… You’ll be done in no time.
2. Quartz Ring
Here’s a set of stunning quartz rings that are surprisingly simple to build. Finding “ring blanks,” which are simply the metal component of the ring even without stone, is the trick.
3. Seed Bead Rings
Seed beads, twine, and a needle are used to create these geometric marvels. They’re made by weaving together a complex but simple design. Using different bead colors, you may create whatever design you choose.
4. Wire Wrapped Crystal Ring
If you want something a little more daring and colorful, try this lovely wire wrapped crystal ring. You may use whatever sort of crystal you have and wrap it around both sides with copper colored wire.
5. Pearl Bead Ring
This is yet another wire wrapping ring, but this one is in a different style from the previous one. Wire is wound around the borders of a thicker circular piece, and the focal point is a beautiful pearl bead.
6. Gold Leather Ring
This lovely ring is created using leather from a pair of thongs, but you could also get some gold leather from your local craft shop. They are then braided together, and elastic is added to make the ring adjustable.
7. Gold Chain Hamsa Ring
You can make this lovely gold ring using the famous Hamsa sign, a Hamsa charm, and some chains. Simply thread a length of gold wire through the charm and connect the ends to the chain.
8. Easy Elastic Ring
This lovely ring is constructed of elastic string, which makes it adjustable and very pleasant. All you’ll need are a few beads and a cubic zirconia. And since it’s customizable, it’d make an excellent present!
9. Clay Dream Ring
These one-of-a-kind rings are created from polymer clay and beads and are attached to coins! The lovely moon shape on the left is complemented by the lovely beads that resemble stars.
10. Living Succulent Ring
This amazing ring is one-of-a-kind because it is fashioned from real live succulent plants! The small plants will probably not survive on a ring indefinitely, but this would be ideal for a special event.
11. Stackable Micro Bead Rings
These vibrantly colored rings are created using ring blanks and then filled with teeny tiny micro beads to give them a distinctive textured appearance. These fascinating rings can be layered one on top of the other.
12. Leather Bow Ring
This beautiful ring looks like a present bow, but it’s made of a wonderful dark leather material. It is then placed on a ring blank and is perfect to be worn throughout the holidays!
13. Easy Heart Rings

14. Button Rings Made of Fabric
These fabric button rings will add a bright burst of color to your hands, and you can fully personalize them by using a favorite piece of fabric that you have on hand (no pun intended!).
15. Beaded Chain Rings
Although chain isn’t the first item that comes to mind when creating rings, it may be a highly useful resource to have on hand. Beads are threaded on wire and then connected to chains, forming a very comfy loop shape.
16. Rings Made of Faux Granite
With these quirky fake granite stacking rings, you can give your fingers a more contemporary look. These are easy to create with only polymer clay and a utility knife. The trick is to get a speckled clay that mimics granite, such as the one seen above.
