How To Stack & Layer Your Jewelry

When it comes to beautiful jewelry, the more the merrier!

Stackable Rings

How To Embrace More Is More

Minimalism is out and maximalism is IN! We may have adopted the phrase ‘less is more’, but layering more necklaces or stacking more rings offers a unique way to show off your style! Starting your day by throwing on several necklaces is a great way to achieve that chic but effortless look. By stacking a few stylish rings on your fingers, you can create an eye-catching ensemble in a matter of minutes. In this blog, we are going to explain why sometimes more is more!

Tips On How To Stack Your Jewelry

Try to keep your metals the same

When stacking or layering your jewelry pieces, it’s a great idea to keep the metals the same. Wearing pieces that are uniform in color will ensure that your look is cohesive and pleasing to the eye. Wearing gold rings with gold necklaces, for example, will tie your whole outfit together beautifully!

Stack jewelry

Mix and match different shapes

When you’re stacking or layering jewelry, you have the freedom to have fun and experiment with silhouettes and shapes! Mixing different shapes within your jewelry will give off an eclectic and colorful touch to your outfit. And if that isn’t what you’re going for, you can match your jewelry shapes and keep things consistent. That will keep the lines and silhouettes of your pieces neat and tidy!

Add different lengths

When selecting which necklaces to use for layering, choose ones with varying lengths! Not only does this help with tangled chains, it gives you the chance to show off each of your pendants individually! Even wearing a chain without a pendant will help your other pieces shine! Tiering your necklaces is the perfect way to add a personal touch to your pieces- all while creating dimension.

Stacking Different Jewelry Tips & Tricks

How To Stack Bracelets

Stacking bracelets is an easy and fun way to add a dash of fun to any ensemble! To make sure things don’t appear too cluttered or disorganized, place your tighter bracelets closer to your hand and your looser or wider bracelets behind them. This works when you wear bracelets of different sizes and thicknesses. When wearing bracelets that are all thin, do as you please! And when stacking bracelets that are all thick, try not to wear more than 2 or 3 on one wrist.

How To Layer & Stack Necklaces

If you’re new to layering necklaces, start off with the following: Wear a choker at around 14 inches, a chain at 16 inches, and three pendant necklaces at 18, 20, and 22 inches- all together! This is a simple and easy-to-remember method to create an alluring tiered look. Once you discover what looks best to you, feel free to mix things up! With so many different chains, pendants, and lengths to choose from, the world is your oyster.

How To Stack Rings

Stacking rings is like an artform! Try wearing a couple of stackable rings with one prominent statement ring. Be sure not to clutter them on just one or two fingers- spread them out! To get a playful but sophisticated look, play around with different stones, shapes, and symbols. Wear standard sized rings and then smaller rings halfway down your finger to elevate your everyday look. But remember- when pairing thick rings with thin ones, always place the thicker rings closer to the base of the finger so the thinner ones don’t appear squished!

How To Stack Stack Earrings

Stacking earrings are all the rage- and for good reason! If you want to get the look but are in doubt, stick to the cascading rule. The rule suggests that you keep your larger and more dangly pieces at the bottom of your ear (around your earlobe, for example), and have your smaller studs and hugging earrings higher up. This ascension gives the effect of a clean and balanced order to your pieces.

Stacking & Layering Jewelry: Get These Looks

Stacking jewelry

To get this look, place a minimalist bracelet further down on your wrist. Pair that with a paperclip bracelet and a tennis bracelet, and you have a beautiful ensemble that mixes shapes, thicknesses, and materials.

Stackable Ring with Necklaces

To achieve this minimal layered look, simply follow the aforementioned necklace tiering tip. Pair an 18-inch chain like this one with a longer chain and pendant of the same metal, and you’re done! It’s a foolproof way to add dimension to any look.

FAQs

1. How do you stack rings nicely?

Go thick to thin! Wear thicker rings at the bottom of your finger and thinner ones closer to the top. Not only does this elongate your fingers, it makes sure that no ring gets overshadowed by another. And remember to add some flair to both of your hands- balance is key!

2. How many bracelets are too many?

While we believe that more is merrier, sometimes there is such a thing as too much. When wearing thinner, daintier bracelets, limit yourself to 6 or 7. When mixing thicker bracelets with thin ones, try not to wear more than 5 on one hand. Wearing too many bracelets can be uncomfortable and cumbersome. Three per wrist is generally the sweet spot!

3. Can you wear bracelets on both wrists?

Totally! Wearing several bracelets on one wrist and only one or two on the other can create a nicely balanced look. Especially when they match your outfit, bracelets on both hands create the perfect accessories.

To Wrap Up

On the days when you want to elevate your look in a matter of minutes, layering your jewelry is your secret weapon! Sometimes, the more jewelry you wear, the more stylish you feel! And the best part? There is no right or wrong way to do it. If you want an eclectic and energetic look, layering can help you achieve that! If you want a more sleek and clean look, layering can do that for you too!

Fine Jewelry Trends To Look Out For In 2022

Is 2022 the year to reinvent your personal style? We’re taking a good look at what fine jewelry our favorite stylists, celebs, and customers are rocking with confidence. Some of the new trends may surprise you, while others are a blast from the past. Let’s get inspired!

Different fine jewelry pieces laid out on a white surface

Fashion is forever changing, giving us the chance to explore different avenues of our unique style and allowing us the opportunity to leap out of our comfort zones and try something new. 

So what boundaries will you be pushing in 2022? Well, we’ve kept a close eye on what fine jewelry designs are growing in popularity and what to watch out for this year! From contemporary takes on classic styles to some beloved trends that are making a comeback, we’re going to show you what’s in and how to rock these jewels right.  

Get ready to explore all-new designs in stacking and layering necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. We’re highlighting the end of minimalist style and saying a happy hello to fine jewelry pieces that go together to create the most amazing impressions of your individual style.

Trend 01: Layering Necklaces & Pendants

In 2022, layering your favorite necklaces and pendants is more about adding different styles, metal colors, and a mix of diamonds and gemstones than it is about adding varying chain lengths.

This trend is also about making your look more personalized. Take your favorite medallion, pendant, or themed necklace, and layer it with other items like solid gold chains to complement your main piece. Take your go-to diamond shape and dare to play around with different diamond cuts this year.

Elongated diamond shapes like oval and marquise appear to be the ones to look out for in 2022, and rightly so, they simply look good on everyone.

Style tip: Pairing a diamond or gemstone pendant with a thin gold chain, along with a clustered necklace or simple medallion is one way to achieve a layered look with colorful and textured dimensions.

Trend 02: Sleek Gold Bracelets

Whether you like yellow gold or not, this traditional metal is here and ready to make your 2022 fine jewelry experience extra golden. Sometimes life can get a little hectic, and keeping your style fresh and playful requires those easy-to-slip-on jewelry pieces. Our recommendation: more is more with a yellow gold layered wrist. 

Choose from a variety of uniquely designed cuffs, paperclips, chains, and tennis bracelets, and pile up your wrist to your heart’s content. Stacked bracelets aren’t for everyone, so take the time to work out where your limits are and which bracelets work best for your comfortability. 

Not loving yellow gold on its own? Don’t be afraid to mix and match your other metals with your chosen yellow gold pieces. Adding different metal colors is a great way to brighten up your look and showcase your unique style.

Style Tip: Combine multiple cuff bracelets with a gemstone tennis bracelet or dainty diamond bracelet on one hand. Balance out the look with a tennis bracelet or unity bracelet on the other hand.

Trend 03: Hoops & Earring Stacks

This one is a definite favorite. Whether you’ve got multiple piercings on each ear or single piercings, we’ve got two fun ways to get this year’s ideal stacked ear look. 

If you’re one of the former, play around with drop earrings or some bold hoops and place them in your lowest piercing. From there, you can get creative and either move up the ear with some cute huggie hoops or studs– remember to play around with different sizes and shapes. 

For those of you with single piercings, you can start with hoops or drop earrings and then move up the ear with single cuffs and crawlers.

Style Tip: Put pavé or plain metal hoops in your lowest piercing, followed by diamond or gemstone studs in your second piercing. Stack single or even triple cuffs higher up the ear to complete the layered look.

Trend 04: Stackable Rings 

Stacking rings is one trend we see flowing with ease from one year to the next. The exciting part is seeing all the new ring styles, of course. In 2022 we’ve seen chic signet rings grow in popularity and we can see why. These stackable rings aren’t only bold and fun but they’re made to be personal. 

From zodiac signs to customized initials and personal motifs, getting your hands on your very own signet ring is one trend you’ll want to hop on, and soon!

Eternity or infinity bands are also making the rounds this year as a fine jewelry favorite, and why not? Who doesn’t love to shine from every angle? Last but not least, don’t forget to add one or two gemstone rings to your collection for those looks that need just a pop of color. 

With stacked rings, there are two ways to go about the trend. First, you can choose to stack a single finger with different plain metal bands or other rings of your choice. This works particularly well if you want to add a little more sparkle to your engagement ring

Or, you could achieve that stacked look by taking your favorite ring styles and wearing one on every other finger. We suggest wearing your chunkier rings on one hand and having your more dainty rings on the other to create that ideal balance.

Style Tip: Start with a signet ring on one hand and balance it out with several plain metals or eternity rings on the other. For a single stacked finger, start with a birthstone ring and pair it with plain metal bands or dainty gold rings with diamond accents.

How To Wear Stackable Rings

When is an engagement ring more than an engagement ring? When it’s part of a stackable wedding set! A wedding set can contain more than an engagement ring and a wedding ring – and we’ll show you how to create your custom wedding stack with stackable wedding rings!

Stackable rings

Here’s how to stack the deck in your favor: start with your engagement ring. Have a good look at its characteristics and choose a matching wedding ring. In many cases, this is where the complementary calculations stop. However, most people, over the course of their married lives, mark special occasions with meaningful rings. And these subsequent, stackable rings can become part of an incredible ring stack that will be all yours.

Engagement ring + wedding ring + …? 

Which stackable wedding rings will make their way into your stack? You’ve got options. 

Anniversary rings

What’s the most obvious continuation to a wedding stack? An anniversary stack! An anniversary ring can look however you’d like, but traditionally each diamond on an anniversary ring represents a year of married life. Have a look at our full anniversary ring gallery and see which setting you love best. 

Graduation rings

Do you know what complements a shiny new diploma? A shiny new ring! It’s actually becoming quite popular to celebrate a graduation with an engagement-style ring: a metal band with a stunning center stone.

Marking the birth of a baby

You’ve brought an actual life into the world. Wow. You’re kind of a hero. New mothers deserve new sparkle, that’s what we always say. Choose your baby’s birthstone or a diamond representing the baby’s order: 1 diamond for your first child, 2 for your second, etc.

Birthday rings

30? 50? 77? Which birthday is particularly significant for you? Mark the occasion with a ring in your birthstone or your favorite metal!

Memorial rings

Keep the memory of a loved one present and close to your heart with a meaningful ring. It could be their birthstone or a particular pattern that reminds you of them. 

Accomplishment rings

You’ve gotten a raise, you’ve beaten an illness, you’ve achieved a long-held personal goal. Celebrate yourself, or recognize a loved one who’s done something incredible that doesn’t deserve to go overlooked.

How do I stack my wedding set?

There are quite a few ways to wear a wedding set, and the same goes for the rings you stack onto it. 

  • If you wear your wedding and engagement ring together, you can place your subsequent rings on either side of your stack.
  • If you wear your wedding and engagement rings on opposite hands, then you can add rings to either hand according to whatever looks best.

Of course, you can also add rings to fingers that aren’t sporting your two stunners, but then it wouldn’t be a ring stack, would it?

Open Ring Stacks

If you’ve got a ring with an elongated center stone like marquise, oval, or pear, then open stackable wedding rings are quite a fitting option. The end of your engagement ring stone will nestle smoothly into the gap of your open ring. 

Split-Shank Marquise Diamond Engagement Ring


Single- and Double-Banded Rings

This is the blingy choice! Choose the single band as your wedding ring, and save the double for your next special occasion – or vice versa. No matter what, your wedding stack is going to pop.

Channel-Set Cushion-Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

Curved Wedding Rings

Curved stackable wedding rings look amazing with uniquely-shaped engagement rings. And you can keep adding curved wedding rings, either identical or in variations, to your stack throughout the years. 

The Delicate Stack

Keep your stack simple and elegant with minimalist rings! This ensemble complements a less-ornate engagement ring like a solitaire or bezel-set ring. 

Crown Basket Solitaire Engagement Ring

Yellow Gold and Diamond-Forward

Give your ring stack a sunny shine with these exceptional yellow gold rings. With unparalleled designs you won’t find anywhere else, these singular rings are deserving of a solid gold match. 

Baguette-Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

A Bouquet of Rose Gold

Rose gold is both sturdy and gorgeous: the copper content that gives it its characteristic rosy shine also makes it pretty low-maintenance. Rose gold rings retain their shine. No tarnish, no way! 

Pavé Emerald-Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

In Other Words…

You don’t have to start planning a wedding ring stack the moment the proposal’s over, but it’s good to keep it in mind. Most ring-wearers add rings to their stack to mark meaningful occasions: most commonly anniversaries, but also for a wide range of personal milestones. Whatever your ring signifies, you can stack it any which way you want. It can hug your wedding ring, your engagement ring, or even go in between if you’d like. Stack it as high as you’d like! Why stop at just three rings?

Stackable Rings: The Essential Guide

We’ve compiled a dazzling assortment of stackable rings. P.S. You’ll want to start stacking these beauties ASAP.

Stackable Rings: Top Ring Stacking Tips

What is a Stackable Ring?

A stackable ring is more than wearing a variety of sparkle, it’s a symbol of your individuality. Whether you stack multiple rings on many fingers or pile sparkle on one finger, both make a shining statement. Stackable rings are also a foolproof gift to spoil a loved one to mark a special occasion. Read our top ring stacking tips, then stack the perfect combo! 

Love At First Stack

When it comes to stackable rings, the creative floodgates are open! Start with a statement ring on your ring finger and build around it. Alternatively, choose small rings with subtle bits of sparkle and work your way up. There’s no right or wrong answer – you are the leader of your stack! We think white, rose and yellow gold rings make the dream stack.

Mix & Match

Learning how to build a mixed metal ring stack requires a combination of practice and personal preference.

Pick a primary color, then add 2-3 secondary pieces to the top and bottom of the center ring for a stunning alternating combo.
