Sophisticated stack rings are a modern style that just keeps trending and trending.
Some trends come and go. The popular trend of stacking rings is here to stay. The elegant, piled-on style has become an instant classic for everything from engagement rings and wedding bands to personalized custom-designed works of jeweled art.
Jewelry lovers have all sorts of how-to questions for jewelry experts. You want to know how to stack rings, how many fingers to wear them on and how to design custom rings in a way that keeps the look truly timeless. If you’re curious about stacking, read on.
Release and Embrace
Get ready to let go of some traditional ideas about wearing jewelry. Stacking rings starts with abandoning the “less is more” cliché and adopting a “more is more” approach. Stacking is about embracing the bling.
For the most pared-down look, stackable rings can simply be two or three slim gold bands paired together on the same finger. If this classic stacked style appeals to you, pile them on, girl! It’s 100% stacked without over-the-top audacity.
To take the look further, stack bands that have something in common but are not exactly the same. For example, you could stack three rings in three different metals, each with three identical diamonds. Singer Alicia Keys’ wedding ring is a variation on this theme, with a two-toned gold/platinum set of three diamond-wrapped bands.
The stacking trend isn’t limited to just a few rings, either. Try stacking lots of narrow bands. Actress Rebecca Romijn wears a stack of seven slim eternity bands in various gemstone colors, including one with a stunning 6-carat yellow diamond. The overall look is on-trend and totally unique.
Another option first seen on fashion runways is to wear multiple rings of the same metal and style, in differing widths, on several fingers. Models would wear varied-width stacks on five or all 10 of their fingers. The contrast between thick and thin can totally flatter the hand as well as each finger.
Twenty-eighteen already has a strong stackable fad toward more ornate, jewel-heavy designs. Whether it’s just two rings or a tall stack, each should be individually exquisite – a bejeweled wrap around your finger. Bachelorette star Emily Maynard follows this trend, with a stack of four different diamond-encrusted rings in various widths.
Left? Right? Both?
If you’re wearing stackables as an engagement or a wedding ring, it’s easy to know which finger to wear them on. Otherwise, you might feel stumped. Which is the trendiest?
Those in the know choose any finger, including the thumb. Stackable thumb rings are having a moment, just like daintily-stacked pinkie rings. As long as the rings have a cohesive feel overall, the look works. The more you mix and match, the more you give off an adventurous, bohemian vibe.
For a simple and classic style, wear matched stackables on the right middle or right ring finger, where they’ll show off the longest and most elegant part of your hand. This is particularly true if you’re planning to stack five to seven rings, because you’ll have more room for stacking on your longest finger.
