Stacking jewelry is a small pleasure that is both fun and fashion-forward. Keep reading on to find out all the ways you can combine your favorite pieces to perfect the art of stacking your jewelry.
We adore well-stacked and layered jewelry. It can take a bland outfit to a whole new level while appearing effortless. There’s no limit to what jewelry you can layer, from fine jewelry accessories to diamond trinkets.
Layering your jewelry in a way that leaves your look polished and perfect can be a little tricky. There are basic rules and tips you can follow to make sure your style isn’t screaming “overkill.” We’ve come up with a few trusted tips that you can always keep in mind before you get ready for a casual night out or an important event.
Whether you love layering necklaces or enjoy stacking rings, let us show you that more is definitely more when piling on sparkling accessories.
The Art Of Layering And Stacking Necklaces
When layering your necklaces, it’s important to remember that it can be done no matter what time of year it is. Layering necklaces and pendants can be just as gorgeous over a turtleneck sweater as they would on a bare neck in the glowing summer.
As you layer, keep your touch as delicate as possible. You don’t want to add one chunky necklace next to another and risk looking sloppy. If you love the more heavy neck accessories, then consider layering a chunky choker with bolder chains.
Pro tip: pearl necklaces make for a perfect classic chunky choker.
Freshwater Cultured Pearl Lariat Necklace
Pair this timeless pearl necklace with smaller chains and be the picture of grace and sophistication.
Triple Layer Pierced Diamond Specks Necklace
They say all good things come in threes: three layers of glittering perfection.
For a softer look, we recommend taking a few elegant pieces, like a diamond or gemstone pendant, and pairing it with a few thinly chained necklaces of varying lengths. Allow them to rest about an inch from each other to get a decorated look.
Pro tip: Feel free to mix and match different metal types when you’re layering your necklaces.

Ring Stacking For Glamorous And Bold Ensembles
We have two tips and tricks for stacking rings. One for stacking gemstone and fine jewelry rings and the other for artfully stacking your engagement ring.
Stacking rings can be one way to express your unique personality. Stacked rings can give off an elegant aesthetic or more of a contemporary vibe, depending on your outfit of choice.
Skies the limit when layering your rings, as texture and color mixing is always welcome! Play around with various shapes and lines to add horizontal and vertical dimensions to your style.
Pro tip: make sure to leave one or two fingers ring-free when stacking and layering your rings.

Stacking engagement rings with accented diamond rings is a trend we’ve seen celebrities like Hailey Bieber adopt in recent years.
Depending on your engagement ring’s setting and center stone, there are endless ways to pair it with your wedding band and anniversary rings. You could pair a solitaire engagement band with a thin-band pavé eternity ring or stack your fancy-shaped diamond with a geometrical ring that sits well against its shape.
Pro tip: stack your engagement ring with thin band rings, so you add to your sparkle without taking away its spotlight.
