How to stack rings
Stacking rings is a hugely popular trend that looks like it's here to stay. Stacking can add new life to a ring which is looking a little lonely and is a great way to create your own distinctive style.
Mix and match colours, stones and styles to create something totally unique and make a statement. At Ernest Jones we love the stacking trend and have a few hints and tips to help you get the most out of it.
First of all, bear in mind that is there's no 'right' or 'wrong' way to stack rings, if you love how it looks, that's all that matters. Don't be afraid to experiment, build up a collection of stacking rings slowly and consider each purchase carefully. Get input from friends whose style you admire and take pride in your assortment of beauties.
Mix and match different widths to give your style a bit of an edge. Pairing a skinny band with something chunky is a great look. If your rings feature stones, stagger them so the gems don't line up vertically. Not only will this look better, but it's much more comfortable to wear. Mixing colour gems creates a dramatic look, especially when you work with deep, rich shades of blue and red.
Gems in different hues of the same colour family will create a nuanced appearance. Don't shy away from blending yellow gold with white and rose varieties. Mixing different textures also adds visual appeal and allows you to show individuality.
How many rings should you wear on each finger? It's really up to you, but you're better off varying it from finger to finger. See what looks and feels right. If you have an especially bulky ring or a favourite that you want to showcase, consider leaving it as a singular ring and leave the stacking to other digits.
If you've fallen out of love with some of the rings in your jewellery box, stacking is the perfect way to see them in a new light. Even old-fashioned pieces can get a new lease on life when combined with more modern styles.
