Bypass Rings Are Back in a Big Way

You say “bypass” I say ’90s…and think instantly of a ring from my personal collection, purchased at a vintage boutique on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. Featuring a trillion-cut peridot set in a ton of 18k yellow gold, it’s definitely ’90s City.

And yet, suddenly bypass rings are everywhere again, introducing a new generation of customers to a vintage style that’s starting to look fresh even to those already familiar with the design—especially in the hands of designers who delight in reinterpreting the classic crossover structure in ways that feel surprisingly modern, or, set with gems galore, just incredibly luxe.

Knowing this, just like chevron bands, the new bypass rings are yet another category to add to your JCK Las Vegas shopping list. Some favorites are highlighted below.
