Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

Like gobs of rock candy, statement rings will give your look a colorful, crystallized touch. Whether clouded or clear, art-deco or minimalist, these XL babies certainly aren't for wallflowers—these pieces demand to be noticed. Once worn by women to draw attention to their drinks during Prohibition in the 1920s, statements rings are enjoying a revival. Wear them individually or rock one on each finger, mixing textures, sizes and colors. With these rings, you'll always want to order another round.
