Stacking Rings Guide: How to wear stacking rings to look better?
If you're not a fan of traditional engagement rings, stacking rings might be right up your alley. This style has been around since ancient times, but it's only recently become popular again in recent years. Like many trends that fall out of favour then re-emerge in the public eye, stacking rings have received a major revamp with new styles and materials than can make them even more versatile and fashionable than ever before.
In fact, there are so many different ways to wear them (and wear them together) that we've put together this guide on how to get started with this unique look!
Wear a bunch of rings on the same finger
The main thing to keep in mind when stacking rings is to make sure they all have different weights. If the ring on your thumb is heavier than the one on your pinky finger, they'll feel out of balance and you won't be able to wear them together.
You can either stack a bunch of light weight rings or some light weight ones mixed with one or two heavier ones. It's also important that each individual ring looks great by itself before you combine it with others!
Combine different metals and colours
You can use the same metal combination to create an interesting look, but it's also possible to mix different metals and colours. Gold is a popular choice because it looks great on its own, but you can also combine gold with silver and rose gold to add extra sparkle.
Mix in classic styles with your more trendy pieces
When it comes to stacking rings, there's no rule that requires you to stick with one style or brand. You can mix and match your rings in a variety of ways—whether you're looking for the perfect set or just want to add some new pieces to an old collection. Here are some tips for mixing up your ring stack:
Mixing metals and colours
Mixing shapes and sizes
Mixing materials (e.g., wood, stone)
Mixing stones and pearls
Don't be afraid to mismatch
You don't have to match everything. You can wear your stacking ring set in the same style, but with different metals or even sizes (if you're into that). If you want to add some color and personality, go for it!
Don't be afraid of mismatching if it makes sense for your outfit. Your stacking ring sets will tell stories about your style and personas that don't need matching accessories or patterns on them.
Try out stones, pearls and patterns
You can add interest to your rings by choosing one or more of the following:
Stones or pearls (black is a great option but any colour will work)
Patterns such as stripes, polka dots and more.
Wear them on any finger except your thumb
Now that we've covered the basics, let's get into the different types of stacking rings and why you might want to wear them. We'll be focusing on three styles: stacked, alternate and mismatched.
Stacked rings are the most common type of stacking ring. When you stack rings, it means that each ring is worn over a previous one with no space in between them. The closer together they are on your finger, the higher-up they appear on your hand—this gives off an illusion that your fingers are longer than they actually are! If you don't like wearing multiple bands at once but still want something feminine or edgy looking then this style is perfect for you! Stacking rings come in all shapes and sizes so there's something out there for everyone:
Round - Rounds are ideal if your wedding band has round stones or accents because it won't clash with anything else around it (unless other round gems such as diamonds). Rounded edges also make these styles comfortable since there aren't any sharp corners digging into your skin throughout wear time like some other shapes might have (square/rectangular).
The point is, take risks! Wear your rings in unexpected ways and don't be afraid to mix and match them. Don’t just stick with the traditional ring finger (I have seen many a woman wear her wedding ring on her thumb!). If you're not ready to go all out, try wearing one of your favorite stacking rings as an accent piece instead of a full stack—it will still look great!
In an informal environment
The key is to be friendly and humble. Your presentation should be casual, but not too casual - make sure you have some sense of your audience's personality in mind, otherwise you can come across as condescending or even boring. The tone of the conversation will change depending on the situation you're in.
For example: Take a look at a few of my social media posts about jewellery. There are usually one or two (sometimes more) replies from my followers (readers). The first image above is a response from someone I've never met in person, but we have interacted online through Instagram and have become friends thanks to that interaction. The second image is another comment where I'm introducing the post and giving a quick rundown on myself and my blog. The third image is another example of friendliness sprinkled throughout the post (and obviously with links this time)!
For me personally, learn how to give links out using emojis! That's what makes it so easy to interact with people online and makes me feel good about myself :)
