What is a wishbone ring?
A diamond wishbone ring is a ring that has a ‘V’ shape. The shape of wishbone rings resembles that of a wishbone in a turkey or chicken - which is how it received its name. The tradition states that when two people break the wishbone in a chicken or turkey (usually on Thanksgiving), the person left with the bigger part of the bone will receive what is called a ‘lucky break’, meaning their wishes will come true. For this reason, wishbone rings are believed to bring good luck and fortune to the wearer.
Wishbone ring meaning
Wishbone rings represent love and luck. It was in the 1900s that wishbone jewellery started to become popular. People would hang an old wishbone ring on their door in the hopes of finding a partner. Today, wishbone jewellery is a popular choice for women’s wedding rings.
How should you wear a diamond wishbone ring?
If you have chosen a wishbone wedding ring, you should put it on first and wear it with the ‘V’ shape pointing toward the wrist. Alternatively, a diamond wishbone ring can be worn as a fashion piece on any finger with the ‘V’ shape pointing either way. Wishbone rings are ideal for stacking with other jewellery pieces due to their versatile nature.
