1. They symbolise luck

3. The meaning of wishbone rings today
Many people wear wishbone rings because they believe they bring luck.
Therefore, they’re often used as wedding rings or given as gifts on birthdays and anniversaries.
When set with diamonds, the most durable substance known to man, they symbolise luck that lasts forever.
4. The perfect wedding ring
The wishbone shape accommodates an engagement ring easily, so it’s the ideal wedding band.
If you combine a straight wedding band with a big engagement ring, the diamond on your engagement ring may scratch the wedding band, leaving marks.
Your ring may also sit skewiff or feel uncomfortable.
A wishbone ring prevents this from happening because it fits around an engagement ring perfectly.
5. Can be worn any way up
Some people believe that wishbone rings should be worn pointing a certain way. But, in fact, they can be worn pointing in any direction.
If worn as a wedding band, the engagement ring is usually slipped on after the wedding ring, meaning the wishbone wedding ring would be positioned first with the ‘V’ pointing toward the wrist.
Wishbone rings work well as stacking rings, meaning you can wear several wishbone rings together on the same finger.
6. Wishbone rings come in many beautiful designs
Not all wishbone rings look the same. They can be set with diamonds or coloured gems, in gold or platinum.
For a wishbone ring that is intended for constant daily wear – such as a wedding band – you should choose diamonds, gold or platinum.
Not only will your ring sparkle beautifully, but these hardy materials are sure to last a lifetime and more.
