How to Stack Your Jewelry Like A Pro

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. 

Stack Jewelry Like a Pro

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

14K Yellow Gold Freshwater Cultured Pearl Lariat Necklace (8.0-9.0mm)

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. 

Kite Set Solitaire Diamond Pendant

14K White Gold Four Prong Basket Solitaire Diamond Pendant (0.25 CTW - H-I / SI1-SI2)

What we love about a diamond pendant is that it can be paired with just about anything.

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.

Evil Eye Diamond Ring

14K Yellow Gold Evil Eye Diamond Ring

Try this beauty on for size and add all the texture and symbolism your ensemble is missing. 

Open Infinity Diamond Ring

14K Rose Gold Petite Open Infinity Diamond Ring

This piece is beautiful on its own or worn with other stackables for a trendier look. 

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. 

Deep V Diamond Ring

14K White Gold Deep V Diamond Ring

The perfect partner to sit flush against your marquise or pear-shaped engagement ring.

Contour Diamond Eternity Ring

Stacking Bracelets From Gemstones To Diamonds 

Layering your brackets is simply the easiest way to stack jewelry, as you’ll have a lot more wiggle room for quantity and can mix up your favorite metals. 

Try stacking smooth and clean-lined precious metal bracelets, either on both wrists or layered up one arm for a chic and polished look. This is lovely for your everyday work look or a semi-formal event.

If you’re feeling colorful and want to go wild with an array of textured and gemstone bracelets, then pick two main pieces you wish to highlight and dress them up with thick and thin bracelets and bangles. 

Pro tip: Invest in easy-to-slip-on bracelets if you’re planning on wearing them often.

Perpetual Diamond And Emerald Tennis Bracelet

14K White Gold Perpetual Diamond And Emerald Tennis Bracelet

Your friends will be emerald green with envy over your exquisite bracelet. 

Akoya Cultured Pearl Brilliance Bead Bangle Bracelet

We’ve said it, and we’ll continue to say it: you can never go wrong with pearls. 

Diamond bracelets are always a swoon-worthy trinket most of us would gladly slip on without hesitation.

The best way to stack your more expensive tennis bracelets without downplaying their brilliance is to layer with petite bracelets like an open cuff bracelet with diamond accents or a minimalist bangle bracelet. 

Pro tip: layer your bracelets with classic and modern pieces to achieve contemporary chic. 

Diamond Tennis Bracelet

14K White Gold Two Prong Diamond Tennis Bracelet (2 CTW - H-I / SI1-SI2)

Minimalist Jewelry: A Beginner’s Guide

Discover the jewelry that minimalists are going crazy for to wear alone, stacked, or layered with other fine jewelry pieces that will remain trendy now and for years to come.  

A collection of fine jewelry, from earrings and bracelets to necklaces.

Are you a beginner only just discovering the incredible power of jewelry? Or perhaps you already know what jewels you like, and you’re looking to add a more minimalist edge to your style. Whatever category you fit into, we’re here to guide you on your journey of discovery.

Minimalist jewelry is and always will be a fashionable option for just about any event or occasion. We’ve looked at common mistakes made when trying to pull off this look and how we can make it easier for you to rock minimalist jewelry and still look effortlessly stunning. 

Here are our top six tips to look out for when purchasing, pairing and wearing minimalist jewelry like a pro. 

Play It Cool With The Classics 

When it comes to minimalist jewelry, invest in the essentials. Add a few classic pieces to your jewelry box for a chic minimalist style that works every time. Timeless jewelry pieces will always pass the latest trends, whether it’s a pair of diamond stud earrings or a dainty pearl bracelet.

Classic or vintage jewelry can be bought for absolutely any occasion and will stand the test of time. They also make for the best gifts and are perfect for both casual and formal environments.

Make One Bold Statement 

The key to a minimalist style is an outfit that has one showstopping jewelry piece. Whether it be a sleek pair of gemstone earrings or a sparkling diamond ring, a single jewel can keep you looking fashion-forward. Nothing screams minimalist chic more than one impactful piece of jewelry to keep all eyes on you.

Keep Your Jewelry Box Light 

Minimalist jewelry can serve you time and time again. Stick to a few versatile pieces that you might wear for both informal and formal occasions with any type of outfit. Here, we suggest starting with precious metals. These metals often appear as clean, sleek lines with smooth satin surfaces.

This type of jewelry is a staple of simple elegance and easy to throw on at a minute’s notice. Take a pair of simple gold earrings, for example, put them on and you’ve gone from casual to polished in an instant. Plus, it’s a long-term investment in quality and style you’ll get to cherish and wear any time you want.

Our only advice here will be to stick to one kind of metal if you wear more than one piece of diamond jewelry.

What we love about gemstones is their ability to look fabulous in whichever fine jewelry piece you prefer. Their color will give you the extra finesse your outfit needs to make a statement; from gemstone rings to a chic gemstone necklace, your options are endless. As a minimalist rule, it’s less complicated to stick to your favorite type of gemstone and avoid unnecessary mixing and matching.

Try to avoid designs that are too intricate and move towards more opulent jewelry with clean cuts and smooth surfaces. You don’t want to take away from the curated minimalism that comes with uncomplicated jewelry designs.
