How To Create The Perfect Ring Stack
More is definitely more when it comes to hand jewellery these days. If you want to wear multiple pieces up or across your fingers, in an assortment of colours, shapes and sizes, here’s how to edit an effortless ring stack.
Fine jewellery is meant to be layered. From the perfectly curated #neckmess to a beautiful bunch of bangles piled high, the more the merrier, we say. Especially when it comes to sparkling, stackable rings – the hottest trend to hit the fine-jewellery game. A stack feels like a stylish, signature look – from cocktail baubles to thin bands, plain to diamond-infused designs, there's so much variety to play with.
With so many options and hardly any rules, the key to a successfully curated stack really comes down to experimenting with various ring sizes, as it’s important that not every piece of the puzzle is the same width. Aside from that, get creative – and don’t be afraid to play with different shapes and materials.
How To Mix Your Metals
When mixing your metals, an all-yellow, rose or white gold stack is classic, chic and ultimately fool-proof. However, if you do decide to mix and match, pull off the look by sticking with only two metals. Pick a dominant colour, then add in two or three pieces of your second metal colour throughout the stack.
No stack is complete without a few simple gold bands. Whether these are dotted with diamonds or birthstone gems, like this gorgeous fine green emerald band, these styles are essential for the perfect ring stack. Tip: If you want to keep things interesting, mix and match a few coloured bands for the prettiest rainbow effect, or wear one alone on the thumb.
Keep It In The Family
When it comes to a certain style or era, it’s best to keep it in the family. Art deco designs look great together, as do a galaxy of stars, or dainty pieces embellished with diamonds. But all together? It can be a little messy. Best to stick to one style for cohesion.
If slim diamond bands are your thing, try stacking a few on top of each on the same finger to get a more textured look. You might want to add one with a stone, like a sapphire, in the middle of the stack to make the colours pop. Just remember to choose your 'statement' finger (or fingers!) and start your ring stack. If you start to stack rings on every finger, things may start to get a bit crowded (not to mention become annoying). We particularly like the look which comes from stacking two or three rings up on one finger, followed by a standalone ring on the one next to it. This creates a beautiful look which can be worn from day through to night.
Make It Personal
Above all, the rings you pick should fit your personality and your very own style. This means that you should choose the styles that stand out to you. This rule is applicable to all jewellery trends, but as rings hold so much personality, it's particularly important here. Sentimental, antique or special-occasion rings shouldn’t be left lying in the jewellery box, either. Layer eye-catching diamonds with more playful, everyday pieces such as bright enamel bands to create stacks that are as individual as you, and that will only get more interesting as your collection grows.
