First came arm parties, then there were layered necklaces. Is it any surprise that the current jewelry style du jour is stacked rings? We love the ‘more is more’ trend for rings because it allows you to create a completely unique look with the same pieces. All you do is mix and match them in different ways to shake things up from day to day.
If you haven’t yet mastered the art of stacking rings like an Instagram pro, we’re here to help. When it comes to layering jewelry, the key is to create a balanced look that’s not completely matchy matchy. A few tips to keep in mind:
– If you’re just beginning, stick with rings of the same metal (or a gemstone color) and simply add in different textures and width.
– Create a few go-to stacks in smaller and larger sizes that you can just throw on without too much thought when you’re in a rush.
– If you’re ready to start taking some risks, wear simpler rings on just a few fingers and then add in a statement-making cocktail ring for extra wow factor.
If there’s one thing every woman should know about stacking rings, it’s that there’s no right or wrong way to do it. Your personal style and aesthetic are what make the combinations fun and interesting.
Still need a few more pointers for stacking rings in style? Read on for helpful tips on mixing metals and gemstones, along with pretty pieces you can invest in to create Insta-worthy ring stacks.
Don’t be fooled–you can totally mix and match different gold tones when stacking rings. The truth is, wearing rose, white and yellow gold together is actually on trend! If you opt to wear all three, use the white gold as the center ring to create a foundation for your look.
If you love the rich shades of gemstones, good news: they can also be stacked stylishly. If you want more of a dramatic look, mix and match gemstones of different colors. Sapphires and amethyst stones look especially pretty together.
If you’re going for a more subtle look, use the same colored gem in different hues. Think aquamarines, sapphires and blue topaz.
Another important tip: if your rings have larger stones, line them up vertically rather than alternating them. The look is much more polished and streamlined.
