Creative Ring Stacking

What are the traditional rules for stacking rings?

Traditionally the left hand ring finger is reserved for a wedding band, an engagement ring, and perhaps an anniversary band. From this meaningful combination the concept of stacking rings was born. These norms are blossoming into a creative approach to ring stacking involving multiple rings layered together, and encompassing both hands with lots of fun flair.

Stack your Rings and Layer your Bracelets!

Carry your ring styling over into your bracelets or necklaces with layers - bring one element such as the birthstone, metal color, or ring style over to unify the look. You can decide how many rings to stack together - some of us are minimalists and some maximalists. Similarly, it's up to you how many bracelets or necklaces to layer, but it's easy to pull your look together with one or two unifying elements.

How do I size rings when stacking?

When stacking rings together, they can fit more like a wider band ring, so you may want to go up a half size to get the perfect fit. Not sure of your ring size? We are happy to send you a complimentary ring sizer. This simple mini tape measure helps you find the perfect fit for your ring.

Is the left hand ring finger only used for wedding and engagement rings?

In some cultures, engagement and wedding rings are worn on the left hand, in some on the right hand. While there may be cultural traditions surrounding the significance of the ring finger, ring styling has become less formal and more fluid. Your jewelry tells your personal story, so you get to choose which ring goes on which finger and what it means to you. If someone asks, it becomes an opportunity to tell your story.

What are the best gemstone combinations when stacking rings?

A little color theory can go a long way, if you are focused only on color, analogous colors, which are close to each other on the color wheel, give a calm feel. Think of the colors of the ocean like Aquamarine, Nantucket Blue Topaz and Sapphire, with Diamonds added in for capturing the light. If you want to make one stone pop, think about the play of light and dark. Placing a ring with a light stone like Peridot next to a dark stone like Emerald will really make the Emerald pop.
