How to: RING STACKING
Updated: Feb 1, 2020
How to let your personal style shine through with these dainty elements.
I'm an absolute accessories junkie. So when I came across #ringstacking years ago I just had to incorporate it into my personal style. But what's the big deal about it? It's essentially the way in which you place a single ring on top of another, on the same finger or another finger on the same hand. Sounds confusing? Well to be honest it's actually quite simple.
So is there a rule when it comes to ring stacking? The answer is simple - there isn't, because it's all about your personal taste and allowing your style to show through your rings.
Here are some of the elements that can be employed when ring stacking to make it stand out!
Step 1: Start with your #favorite ring
Or the one you want to build around. It can be a more chunky ring, one with gems or your most valued piece in your collection; for example a wedding or engagement ring or anything with great sentimental value.
Step 2: Decide on mixing metals
For example, use all yellow gold rings. It's nice if you have a single colour palette to work with, especially if you're into a more refined, sleek look.
Or you don't have to. You can mix and match yellow gold with rose gold or even silver! This adds lovely contrast and makes your ring stack more interesting.
Step 3: Pairing rings
Smooth rings can be paired with textured rings for even more contrast. Add in rings with different #shapes for a fun element. Don't forget you can include rings with jewels if you want to add some colour or bling!
Step 4: Don't forget your thumb and pinky!
You most certainly can include rings on your thumb or little finger. #Midi rings are always interesting to use, as they help to make things look less one-note.
Step 5: Just have #fun with it
It takes a few tries and different layouts before you're confident in your ring stacking.
Before you know it, it'll be a no-brainer. Add as many or as little as you want, but remember to keep an element of class in it.
