One of the hottest trends of the moment is to stack rings. You can wear more than one ring on a finger and it could look great, depending on the pieces you choose. You just have to follow a couple of styling rules regarding how to stack rings and use your imagination. For those of you who want to learn how to stack rings like a pro, we have prepared an inspiration article. Read further to discover the styling rules of stacking your rings.

Stack rings by metal & color

If a couple of years ago combining gold jewelry with silver one was a big no-no, nowadays it’s quite fashionable to do that. You can wear your gold rings along with your silver and platinum ones. If you are new to this trend, you could try to stack rings by the color of the metal. For example, you could combine white gold with silver and platinum. Another idea is to stack them according to the metal. Wearing a rose gold ring along with a yellow and white gold ring is a wonderful idea.

If you want to take this one step further, you can combine different metals and colors. You can wear your gold ring on the same finger as your silver and platinum one. The trick here is to have continuity, so make sure you have a middle piece to make the transition. For example, you could wear at the base of your finger a silver ring. Then you could have a textured gold ring containing both white and yellow gold. On top of it, you could wear a yellow gold ring. The middle piece has the purpose to tie your jewelry together. If you decide to stack rings on both of your hands, make sure they are even. This means that you can’t wear gold on your hand and silver or white gold on the other hand.

Stack rings by their style

Stacking your rings doesn’t mean that you can combine any pieces together. You can’t have an antique ring stacked together with a geometric and a minimal one. The idea is to stack rings which have similar styles. If you want to be edgy, you could stack geometric rings, for example. For an elegant and romantic style, you can wear an art deco ring together with two simple bands of the same metal. If you want to wear a chunky piece, make sure that the other two rings are simple and not statement ones.

What about the gemstones?

Some gemstones look well together, others do not. When choosing the rings you want to stack, pay attention to the gemstones. Neutral colors like the ones of diamonds or clear crystals look great with any gemstone. Rubies, on the other hand, won’t look as great with turquoise, for example. If you want to stack rings with gemstones, create a color theme. It could be pastels, in which case you could wear turquoise with opals and tourmaline, for example. You could also wear sapphires with diamonds or rubies with garnets and other gemstones with hues of red.

It is also important to consider the setting on the ring. Solitaire, cathedral or bezel settings don’t look so great with other rings that have the same or similar settings. Usually, a ring that has a centerpiece looks good with rings that feature gemstones in paving or channel settings.

Other jewelry with stacked rings

Except for anklets, rings are the jewelry pieces that stay the lowest on your body. This offers you a lot of freedom when you stack rings. It means that you can’t wear stacked or statement bracelets as they are too close to the ring area. But it also means that you can wear statement earrings as they are the highest on your body. This way you create an interesting balance. So, to sum it up, forget the bracelets when wearing stacked rings and focus on your earrings. Regarding the necklace, you can wear one, but make sure it’s a subtle piece.

Show some skin

As with mismatched earrings, this trend of stacked rings is not about matching them perfectly. Sure, they have to have a common element, but you don’t need to have a finger full of metal. Instead, try to leave some space between your rings so that you can see a little bit of skin. You can achieve that by wearing different style rings, such as a simple band with another ring of a wavy design.

Last, but not least, pay attention to your nails. Choose neutral colors for them and wear them short or medium-length. You don’t want colorful and long nails to distract attention from your rings.
