Sterling silver or white gold chain. Might be worth checking out a couple of different styles of chains. But the chain shouldn't overbear the ring itself.

I think they are cool.

After only reading the OP, I say neither. If you like the ring, wear it. I only dislike pinky rings (or most jewellery or accessory items) if I get a strong "I'm so cool/edgy because I wear this" vibe from the person wearing it.

When I think of pinky rings I think of someone with an engineering degree. Anyway, if it was me, I'd be more comfortable wearing it on my pinky than on a chain. I have a DD who likes to pull on anything aroung my neck.

I was just going to post this! I have my steel engineering ring on my pinky and haven't taken it off in years. (I do think that this is possibly more of a canadian thing than a us thing- I think that only my university did this at least in the midwest- all my canadian engineering buds had them).

If I loved the ring and it fit I would totally wear it on whatever finger it fit on. I don't love the necklace/ring combo. Or you could try wearing it and see if it bugs you (mine was kinda hard to get used to at first).

I don't mind the look on other people. I'm not a big fan of wearing a lot of rings myself but I think it's fine on other people.

I like the ring on a chain look too though so I'd go with whichever you like better.

I wouldn't worry about a chain breaking. I've had several rings damaged on my fingers but I've never had a necklace chain break without my noticing.

I think pinky rings are only cheesy on men, but then again -- do whatever you want is typically my motto.

Rings on chains strike me as a bit juvenile and somewhat cheesy, like something a 15 year old girl does with her boyfriend's class ring or whatever.

But again, do whatever. I certainly don't think a pinky ring or a ring on a chain makes someone morally bankrupt or anything lol

Wow, this is how I feel too. I had no idea that wearing rings on certain fingers go in and out of fashion.
That said, wearing a ring on my forefingers or thumbs feels odd.

I like pinky rings and thumb rings a lot more than wearing them on my ring fingers. I don't think they look *cool* or *tacky* though. They just look like you're wearing a ring.

during my last pregnancy, i wore my engagement ring and wedding band on a white gold chain once my fingers were too puffy to wear them as rings anymore. this time around, i just put them in my jewelry box. LOL i say do what makes you comfortable!

On men, definitely not. They strike me as very Tony Soprano-ish.

On women, probably not, unless she is wearing 1 or 2 other rings. And then, only if it's a band and no stone.

It depends on the person and what other jewelry they are wearing.
