HOW TO STACK RINGS LIKE A PRO


There's something about a woman who can stack rings like a pro that makes her look effortlessly cool and stylish. If you're not quite sure how to do it, don't worry - it's easier than you think! Just follow these simple steps, and you'll be able to create the perfect ring stack in no time


1. Keep it Simple



To avoid some unnecessary struggles, use thin, delicate rings. Dainty rings are more comfortable for ring layering and blend with little effort compared to chunky rings that call for a lot of trial and error. Keep it simple, especially if you're beginning to play around with ring layering. As you progress, you can add in more texture and dimension.


Dainty rings are also great for everyday wear and can easily transition from day to night. When wearing delicate rings for the day, feel free to stack them up with other thinner rings. However, if you're dressing up for a night out, try styling your dainty rings with a bold cocktail ring or another eye-catching piece. This will give you a glamorous look that is still sophisticated.


2. Consider Your Fingers



As you become more comfortable with the ring stacking process, experiment with different styles, shapes & widths that interest you but never stray too far from your comfort zone. Some people are blessed with gorgeous fingers and can wear any ring they want. If you're not one of them, keep to the tried and true stacking rings that suit you.


Remember, stacking rings should always be worn together to create a cohesive look, so it's essential that they complement each other in size and thickness. For example, you don't want one statement ring to overshadow the rest completely. Or, if all of your rings are thin and delicate, don't stack on something overly chunky that will make them look out of place.


Another word of advice: If you have short fingers, avoid stacking on too many rings as it will make your hands look even smaller. In contrast, if your fingers are very long and slender, you can get away with stacking a few more rings.


3. Mixing+Matching



First, mixing metals in your layered ring stack is absolutely ok, and it can help highlight contrasting colors. For example, if you're wearing a yellow gold band with diamonds, mix and match the same ring but in a different metal (silver) for another stack; this creates contrast while still looking cohesive. Because yellow gold is sometimes too predictable and can feel stale, silver, on the other hand, can add shimmer to your stack of bands.


Likewise, it is also ok to mix and match different widths. However, when combining thicker and thinner rings, keep in mind that it is essential to place the thicker rings at the base of your finger and complete the finger with thinner bands. Meaning, go thick-to-thin, don't go the other way around. Thin-to-thick gives the appearance that your thin rings are squishing together. Your stack of bands should gradually get thinner to avoid this look.As you become more comfortable with the ring stacking process, experiment with different styles, shapes & widths that interest you but never stray too far from your comfort zone.

4. Don't Go Overboard



One of the most common mistakes we see people make is going overboard with their ring stacking. It's important to remember that less is often more and that you don't need to fill every finger with multiple rings. A few well-chosen pieces can make a big impact and look much more stylish than a bunch of cheap trinkets.


Choose two or three rings that you love and stack them together. Stacking more than three rings will likely make your fingers look like they are wearing handcuffs rather than showcasing each ring individually, which is the goal. If you absolutely must add an extra ring to your ring stack, pair it with a thin band so that it doesn't steal the spotlight from your other rings. Or, try out a midi ring (a ring that falls between your first knuckle and your finger joint) for an unexpected touch.


5. Leave One Finger Bare



Resist the temptation to put on rings until all fingers are full. Part of the beauty of stacked rings is playing with negative space, so try to leave at least one finger bare—experiment with 1, 3, and 5 fingers (out of ten).


If you don't leave one finger bare, your fingers will look weighed down, and the rings will start to blend together. Wearing fewer rings will make your individual pieces stand out more. Plus, it'll be more comfortable, and you won't have to worry about your rings getting caught on things as much.


6. Incorporate Vintage Pieces



Inquire about raiding your grandmother's jewelry box. It's the ideal location for a retro-glam find. We adore mixing vintage and art deco treasures with contemporary pieces. The unexpected clash of design elements is just as alluring as a perfectly matched set.


Vintage finds are perfect for stacking and can add a subtle hint of romance to your ring look. They also make great conversation starters. So, the next time you're out antiquing, keep an eye out for rings that look good stacked together. You never know what treasures you'll find!


7. Invest In Eternity Rings



Eternity bands exist in a limitless variety of designs, sizes, and price points. So don't be scared to stack one-eternity band, two, or three rings on top of each other. We especially love baguette eternity bands, which will add a touch of class to your look. And eternity bands with princess cuts, which is pure glitz. Whichever stack rings you choose, more is always better.


In addition, try stacking a simple solitaire atop a band or a series of thin bands for extra sparkle. Or, for a slightly more unusual look, try stacking a white gold eternity band atop a rose gold ring for an unexpected but striking mix.Inquire about raiding your grandmother's jewelry box.

8. Give Your Statement Rings Some Room



If you've spent money on a statement piece like a signet ring, you'll want to give it a chance to breathe. This ring requires space to stand alone, so avoid stacking it with many other rings, like huge ones. Wearing a signet ring alone on one finger and then complementing it with other thinner rings on your other fingers or other hand is a fantastic option.

9. Stack Midi Rings



Stackable midi rings are for when you want to add a bit of glamour to your day-to-day outfits. The best part about these small stacking rings is that they're so versatile; most people will find themselves wearing them with several different outfits. And, because they come in such a wide variety of styles, it's easy to mix and match different rings to make your own unique look.


Are you starting the day in a more casual setting? Stack on three or four gold midis for an edgy, relaxed vibe. Transitioning into the evening and want to change up your look? Add a pavé midi ring or two for instant sparkle.


Getting started with midis are easy. Since they're all about personal preference, there isn't a "right" number to stack. Some people wear several thin bands on each hand, while others prefer a single chunky ring. You can determine your stacking style by purchasing a few different midi rings and trying them out before buying more. Experiment with different looks until you find a look that you love.


10. Ring Positioning Is Key



It is safer to point all stacking ring sets in the same direction. Ring positioning is important because ring prongs can easily get caught on delicate items, such as your knit sweater, when pointed in different directions. It may also pull at your skin or cut off circulation to your finger when worn for a long time.


That said, ring positioning can also affect how your rings look when worn. For example, wearing all of your stacking rings on the same hand and in the same direction gives a more polished look, while wearing them on different hands or in different directions adds some edge to your look.


11. Get Your Pinky In On It!



While most people think of the ring finger when stacking rings, don't forget about your pinky! A dainty little ring on your pinky can add a touch of elegance to your look and is perfect for special occasions. Just be sure that what you choose is comfortable to wear and doesn't get in the way of everyday tasks.


The right pinky ring looks great with everything from casual outfits to formalwear, pairing well with dressy and everyday looks. There are no rules about matching your pinky ring to the other rings on your finger or clothing. Instead, play around with different ring set combos until you find one that works for you!


A. Choose a Ring That Fits


The first step in wearing a little finger ring is to ensure that it's the right size. If your ring fits too tightly, it will cause discomfort. But, on the other hand, if the ring is too loose, it will fall off your hand quickly, and you'll lose it.While most people think of the ring finger when stacking rings, don't forget about your pinky!

B. Find the Right Ring Style


Like any other type of jewelry, you need to find a ring that fits your style when choosing a pinky ring. If you prefer simple and understated accessories, go for a plain gold or silver band. If you want something more flashy, choose a ring with a colorful gemstone or intricate design.


C. Consider the Outfit


Just as you would do with any other type of jewelry, try to match the color and design of your pinky ring to your outfit. Let's say, if you're wearing a black dress, a tiny black diamond ring is a classic choice that will look great against your formal wear. But, on the other hand, if you're wearing a cute summer dress in a bright color, your little finger ring looks best in a colorful shade, too, like one with a pretty stone or an embellished design.


12. Let Your Fingernails Guide You



Let your fingernails be your guide when deciding how many rings to wear. If you have long nails, you can get away with wearing more rings. However, keep it to 2-3 if you have short nails. This will help avoid the "overloaded" look and keep your rings looking chic.



13. Edit Your Ring Stack



If you've been wearing the same ring stack for a while and are starting to feel like it's time for a change, don't be afraid to edit your stack. Editing your ring stack means removing rings you no longer wear or replacing them with new ones that reflect your current look better. Be sure to do this gradually, though; otherwise, you'll have a mismatched mess on your hands.


Editing your ring stack is a great way to keep your look current and interesting, so don't be afraid to change things up from time to time!



14. Build Your Ring Collection Slowly



Start with one or two key pieces, and then slowly build up your stackable ring collection over time. This way, you can focus on finding pieces that you absolutely love and that work well together, rather than feeling like you need to fill up your finger all at once.


Finding the perfect accent stones, settings, and styles for your ring stack takes time. Start with a few key pieces that hit all of these points, and then slowly add in new ones over time.


Wrapping Up




Stacking rings is an easy way to make your jewelry collection more versatile and fun. All you need to do is choose a few ring styles that look good together, pick out different colors and materials, and then experiment with different combinations until you find the right ones for your personal style.
