If you’re looking for a diamond engagement ring or wedding ring, then consider a wishbone ring.

Wishbone rings are beautiful pieces of jewellery that hold a lot of meaning. The perfect ring for minimalists, wishbone rings are a unique piece of jewellery that will certainly stand out from the crowd. Diamond Heaven tell you everything you need to know about wishbone rings.

What is a wishbone ring? 

A wishbone ring is a piece of jewellery featuring a ‘V' shape. Wishbone rings get their name because their shape is similar to the wishbone in a chicken or turkey. Traditionally, in the UK or USA (especially at Thanksgiving), two people would break the wishbone in the chicken or turkey. It was believed that the person left with the bigger piece of bone would be called the ‘lucky break,' and soon their wishes would come true. 

What does a wishbone ring mean? 

Wishbone jewellery became popular in the early 1900's - they were commonly found on postcards and greeting cards. Later on, the wishbone because a symbol of love - people would hang wishbones above their door in a bid to find a partner. 

For many people, the wishbone is a symbol of luck. Wishbone jewellery makes a great gift for anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions. When you combine wishbone rings with diamonds, it is believed that the wearer will have long-lasting luck and happiness. 

How should you wear a wishbone ring?

If you've got a wishbone engagement ring, you should put it on after your wedding ring with the ‘V' pointing towards the wrist. If worn on its own, the wishbone ring looks great with the ‘V' pointing towards the top of the finger. However, it is entirely up to you how you choose to wear a wishbone ring.
