There’s no ‘one size fits all’ when wearing a ring – you need a piece that speaks to your style. And if your style is somewhat unorthodox, you’ve come to the right place.
We look at five rings that redefine the norm from Hernán Herdez, a jewellery line designed by Puerto Rican art director Melissa Hernández.
The below rings from this collection were handmade in New York by some of the city’s finest jewellers. Find out what makes them so special below.

1. Puff Ring
This iconic timepiece containing two completely different shapes is the first inclusion on our list.
One oversized, puffy band is stacked with a thinner, irregular, subtly undulating band. Its design not only piques one’s curiosity but also reflects the craftsmanship behind the ring – each band has been handmade with precise detail and oozes shine, charm, and intrigue.
You have the luxury of two different options depending on your taste, and you can wear both bands together on one finger for maximum impact.
The Puff Ring set is available in sterling silver and fits true to size, so you have a quality and versatile finish in equal measure.
Like the other rings in our article, this piece is a sleek everyday adornment for your finger and will elevate any outfit.
2. Abrazo Ring
Our next inclusion is the classic, seasonless Abrazo ring. The word ‘abrazo’ means ‘to embrace’, or ‘hug’ in English, and this ring is referred to in such a way as it wraps itself around (or ‘hugs’) the finger more than a conventional ring.
Therefore, the Abrazo ring carries the illusion of being a double band. It’s unorthodox, challenges tradition, and bound to create a sense of intrigue among your peers. Such is its multifunctionality in terms of its design, it can be worn to any occasion.
A perfect pairing to the Abrazo necklace, this ring boasts a multitude of benefits:
- It's lightweight, meaning it’s comfortable enough for you to wear day and night.
- It’s available in multiple sizes, so you’re bound to find one that fits.
- It’s good for the environment, as it’s made from recycled sterling silver.
When you purchase this gorgeous ring, you're sporting a stylish piece whilst also doing your bit to help the planet.
3. Mala Ring
A common characteristic that these unusual silver rings all share is their ability to create illusions and stimulate intrigue. The Mala ring certainly does this and will keep you fixated as you explore its intricate features.
The first feature you may notice is the two offset, irregularly-shaped bars designed to hang from the negative space of the finger, thus creating illusions of floating. You may also be drawn in by the triangular shape of one of the bars – a unique feature in itself.
As such, this is the ring for you if you’re looking for something that’s both elegant and eccentric.
Style and substance are abundant in equal measure here. The Mala ring is suitable for everyday wear and, again, is made from recycled sterling silver, which reiterates Hernan Herdez’s commitment to sustainability.
The penultimate ring in our article is the striking and colourful Perlaquita ring, a bold embodiment of the relationship – and irregularities – between land and sea.
The large malachite is this ring’s most instantly recognisable feature and is a nod to the sea.
The dark shade of green is mesmerising in situ and even more so when intertwined with lighter colours. These lighter colours, which appear almost ripple-like on the malachite, evoke images of an ocean with the sun beating down on it.
The freshwater pearl provides a sharp contrast to the malachite. For context, a freshwater pearl is obtained from oysters that mature in non-saline waters such as lakes or ponds, as opposed to saltwater from the sea.
However, despite the land and sea dichotomy, this mesmerising ring brings these two opposing gems together and shows that they can coexist on the same band to great effect. It also shows how seamlessly two completely different colours can blend together.
The Perlaquita is thought-provoking, aesthetically pleasing, and makes a real statement. It’s also a versatile ring that can either be worn individually or paired with a range of modern styles.
The Dueto No.2 contains such an array of fascinating features that your eyes won’t know where to look upon first glance.
A successor to the original Dueto, this ring gives you three looks in one. Two irregular sterling silver rings of different sizes pass through a 10 karat solid slab.
So, this ring is adaptable in a couple of ways – there’s the constant changing of its shape, and there’s the interchange between silver and gold. It’s curious, imaginative, and truly unique.
You’ll pick up on a different detail each time you look at this ring.
Finished to perfection, this ring was created by hand in New York with the help of local silversmiths.
