It feels like layering and stacking are all the rage these days when it comes to jewelry fashion 101. While layering necklaces may be a little more straightforward, there’s a certain art around stacking rings. We’ll show you how to stack rings for every style from simple and minimalistic to edgy and bold with 6 easy tips. 

Mix and Match 

The first thing when learning how to stack rings is to add in different shapes and sizes. This will give your ring stack some dimension.

Depending on the fashion look you’re going for, your stack could be complete with two bold statement rings, or you may want a dozen simple dainty rings. Play around with small bands and gold chunky rings to strike the perfect balance. 

Twinning is Winning: Double Up on Dainty Rings

On the other hand, you can stick to one ring you love. When you’re working with small, dainty rings, including the same ring a couple of times is a great way to create symmetry and cohesion when you stack rings.

Add a Statement Ring

If you’re looking for more of a bold and edgy look when creating your ring stack, opt for a statement ring or two. These help draw attention to your hands, which is perfect for those times when your outfit is more neutral or you’ve just gotten a fresh manicure.
