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?

10 Unique Wedding Bands For The Modern Man

Everyone deserves to wear a piece of jewelry that is as unique as they are. For men, traditional yellow and white gold wedding bands are just the tip of the iceberg in men’s wedding jewelry trends. Join us as we explore statement styles of one-of-a-kind forever rings. 

Men's wedding bands

Believe it or not, there are more to men’s wedding bands than the simple and popular classics. There are men’s wedding rings that come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. From a touch of extravagance with diamond rings to alternative metals with patterns and textures aplenty, skies are truly the limit on choices for men’s wedding bands today. 

It’s all a matter of preference and taste. At James Allen, we value our customer’s individuality and unique styles. That’s why we’ve taken the time to highlight ten exquisite rings that are sure to stand out and show off the personality of their wearers. After all, a wedding ring is a symbol of two partners’ love and unity.  

Picking a wedding ring for your future husband should take some time and thought. It’s not always easy to get it right, but the trick is to go with something that reflects your partner’s unique style and character. Read on while we unpack our top 10 most unique men’s wedding bands. 

Textured Wedding Bands

Textured wedding rings offer dimensions to any band while gracefully hinting at the personality and interests of their wearers. These rings are perfect for men who work with their hands, enjoy outdoor activities, and like a rugged look to their most precious accessory. 

Textured rings can be rough, with indented, grooved, and carved features circling the band. Unlike smooth and polished surfaces, these rings accentuate the idea that there’s a masculine edge to them without taking away from the true meaning behind a traditional wedding band. 

These unique men’s wedding bands are on the rise and come in just about any gold and alternative metal. Their versatility makes it easy to get the metal of your choice and the style you prefer. 

Two-Toned Wedding Bands 

Men’s two-toned wedding rings come in a wide range of styles and materials. Combine two metals in a stripe or line around a thicker wedding band for a delicate touch or create more dimensions to a narrow band. 

A two-toned wedding ring will perfectly reflect your love and your partner’s unique sense of style in one polished band. It’s the ideal choice if your groom’s personality is bold and he loves to stand out. 

Diamond Wedding Bands 

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but we know even the roughest and toughest gentlemen will oh and ah over the brilliance of a little sparkle. 

Diamonds are resilient and can handle the obstacles of any man’s lifestyle while being the perfect representation of strength and eternal love. This unique men’s wedding band looks excellent as a thicker ring, and the diamonds simply add a touch of glamour for the groom. 

Gemstone Wedding Bands

If diamonds aren’t your style but you’re still looking for something with a bit of sparkle, a hint of color may be just what the doctor ordered. Precious gemstones are rare and full of spirited meaning, like sapphires, for example. These stones have typically represented longevity and prosperity for centuries. 

You don’t have to believe wholeheartedly in their symbolism to know that they make for stunning unique men’s wedding bands. The darker blues and blacks give the wedding ring a handsome and bolder look while hinting at a more luxurious style. 

Alternatively, if you like the idea of darker-colored wedding bands but prefer to skip the extra shine, check out our collection of men’s black wedding rings.

Patterned Wedding Bands 

Now for the fun men’s wedding rings. Patterned wedding bands can be the perfect choice for any groom who loves the idea of wearing a piece of jewelry that has indented symbols, pictures, or artful motifs. A personalized design is our equivalent to a custom-designed ring. It shows the heart of its wearer while giving them everything they’ve ever wanted in their wedding band.

Patterned rings are just as versatile as textured wedding bands and are not limited to a specific metal. You can get a patterned ring on a budget by opting for an alternative metal if you’re looking for something less traditional and a bit more flashy.  

These unique men’s wedding bands can give that something extra while showing off the wearer’s personality through its art. We also find these rings to be a thoughtful, romantic gesture. Gifting your soon-to-be husband with a ring that speaks to his style, identity, and even his favorite interest shows just how much you care. There will be no question as to how much effort you’ve put into getting the perfect wedding band. 

Most Asked Questions About Men’s Wedding Bands 

Now that we have our unique men’s wedding bands out of the way let’s look at the semantics behind other important wedding ring questions.

Who Buys The Groom’s Wedding Band?

In today’s modern culture, it’s likely you, the groom’s partner, will buy his wedding ring. You can do this by yourself or with the help of your family. Alternatively, if you and your fiancé have a shared budget, then you can both decide how much to spend on your rings together. 

How Much Should You Spend On The Wedding Band?

It all comes down to your budget and the groom’s expectations. It’s important first to work out what style band he would prefer. The more expensive metals like platinum and diamond rings can push you just past $2000. In comparison, you can get alternative metal bands starting at $100 and classic wedding rings starting at $270. 

Do Men Also Wear Engagement Rings?

Traditionally the person who proposes to their partner would not wear an engagement ring. However, traditions are changing, and it has more to do now with what you as the couple want. 

Men’s engagement rings are increasing in popularity, and so if it works for your budget and it’s something you’d both like, hop on the new trend! 

Final Thoughts 

When it comes to picking unique men’s wedding bands for you, James Allen has all the tools and convenience you need to find the perfect fit. Visit our wedding ring page for all you need to know about the different metals, styles, designs, and more!

Getting your jewelry engraved with a personalized message is the ultimate way to create a unique and thoughtful sentiment. 

Engraved rings

Engraved rings are the romantic gesture you never knew you needed. Not only is it reasonably easy to get your wedding ring or engagement ring custom-engraved, but it’s affordable too. 

Perhaps you and your partner have an inside joke you want to be engraved on your wedding rings. Maybe, you’re planning on adding that personal touch but have no idea what to put on your engraved ring? That’s where we come in.

We have plenty of romantic, funny, and traditional ideas to share with you as well as some helpful facts and tips about engraving your rings and jewelry. Read on to learn more and get inspired. 

Engraved Engagement Rings

Planning a proposal is one thing, but gifting your love with a custom-engraved engagement ring will take the touching moment to a whole new level. When engraving engagement rings, sentiment plays a huge role, but personality is definitely more important, so skies the limit.

Dare to be cute, funny, and even a little cheesy! Your proposal is sure to be a happy and memorable occasion, so use this opportunity to make sure the inscription you choose adds to the laughs, smiles, and happy tears. 

Here are some romantic and funny ideas for engagement ring engravings:

Romantic:

  • I love you 
  • Yours forever 
  • My eternity 
  • Keeper of my heart
  • All my love
  • Yours eternally 
  • Mine forever, always yours 

Funny: 

  • Resistance is futile

Engraved Wedding Rings

Wedding rings – the final piece of forever that seals the deal when you and your partner say, “I do.” For this magical moment in time, your engraved rings should hold the utmost sentiment.

Unlike an engagement ring, this engraving should bring a tear to the eye and tug on those heartstrings.

We recommend going traditional here: 

  • Add your wedding location 
  • A line from your wedding song 
  • A line from a poem you both love 
  • A bible verse 
  • The date of your wedding
  • The date you first met  
  • Your initials 
  • Mr & Mrs _____
  • Split message; you will be one half of a whole, after all! 

Our tip: take your time to choose the perfect engraving for your wedding ring. Either work with your partner to do a split message or use a combination of ideas you both like. 

Engraved Anniversary Rings

Celebrate your anniversary with a stunning anniversary ring or check out our range of sparkling eternity rings for alternative options. We have a couple of lovely ideas for engravings to make this milestone truly memorable.

  • The date of your honeymoon 
  • The initials of your children 
  • The dates of your child/children’s birthdays 
  • The written number of years you’ve been together 
  • An image of your choice (two hearts) or something that represents you two 
  • A sentimental quote like, “still going strong” or “as beautiful/handsome as the day we met” 

Our tip: we know it’s not always easy to think of a suitable inscription and so remember that it’s okay to wait until you know what the perfect engraving is. It can always be added in the future. 

The Most Asked Questions About Engravings

Traditionally, engravings are done by machines that use a diamond tip instrument and a clamping technique. However, with the introduction of the latest technology, laser engravings, your choice of engravings on your wedding, anniversary, or engagement ring are now boundless. 

What is Laser Engraving?

Laser engraving is performed using a machine equipped with a pencil-like laser that a person or artist controls. A laser beam allows the device to trace words, images, symbols, and patterns, to create the perfect custom engraved rings. Laser engraving can be done on just about any surface and works on all precious and alternative metals. 

Fun fact: Laser engraving is different from machine engraving, as it allows for more accurate engravings with clear-cut and deeper lines. Plus, it’s not limited to any particular font either.

Why is Laser Engraving Easier to Read?

Laser engraving is much easier to read than machine engraving because it has a higher precision rate. It doesn’t chip away at the metal, and there is no wear and tear from tool usage because it’s a laser. 

The laser burns the metal, turning the messaging or imagery darker, making it easier to read. The laser is also more detail-driven and can produce the tiniest features, making unique personalized engraved rings or jewelry all the more appealing.

Will the Engraving Scratch off?

Our rings go through natural erosion the longer we wear them. Men’s wedding rings, for example, often need to be polished and mended for damage or breakage. The tougher your lifestyle, the more strain your ring will take long-term. 

If you’re planning to make a personalized engraving on the outside of your ring, chances are, somewhere along the line, you may need to have the engraving redone. But, the durability of the engraving relies mainly on the durability of the metal itself.

Opt for stronger metals like tungsten or platinum when engraving on the ring’s exterior, as softer metals, like white gold, are more vulnerable to chips and scratches. 

On a more encouraging note, engravings on the inside of a ring are likely never to wear away or become scratched, no matter the ring’s metal. 

What’s the Cost for Engraving?

Laser engraved wedding bands are the most popular jewelry to receive personalized messages and details. Experts estimate that getting a ring engraved can cost between $25 for up to 30 characters, including spaces. 

Here at James Allen, our customers can opt for a free engraving at checkout, on us! We offer you the choice between block or script fonts. You choose the engraving and we’ll take care of the rest. 

Pro tip: choose the block font if your band is less than 2mm thick. 

Keep Us In Mind

Here at James Allen, we love the little extra things we can do to make your experience all the more special. If you want to learn more about engraved rings, see our featured articles below. 

Don’t forget that you get your own customer engraving for free with any ring purchased from our on-site store. Contact our 24/7 customer service agents for any questions. We’re happy to help you find the ring of your dreams or the perfect gift for your loved one.

How To Wear A Wedding Ring Set: The Must-Read Guide

In the world of how to wear wedding rings and engagement rings, there are no hard-and-fast rules. Even the most “universal” traditions, as you’ll soon see, are subject to variations. It all depends on the ring wearer’s particular culture and style.

So what should YOU do? Read on to find out.

The Right Way To Wear A Wedding Ring

“What’s the right way to wear my wedding ring?”

With all the traditions and rituals involved in marriage, it’s easy to get lost in the whirlpool of the wedding “should”s. And there are a lot of them. But as far as how to wear a wedding ring, where to wear a wedding ring, and what your wedding ring should look like – there is quite a bit of room to express yourself! On the whole, the world of wedding rings is less rigid than that of engagement rings

Wedding Ring Pros: you have lots of flexibility in your style choice.

Wedding Ring Cons: you still have to navigate numerous, and possibly conflicting, traditions. 

That’s why we’re here to answer your questions about how to wear a wedding ring.

14K White Gold Pave Knife Edge Lotus wedding Band

#1: What’s the difference between a wedding ring and an engagement ring? 

Though there are a few key design differences, the main thing that sets these two types of rings apart is when they’re given. An engagement ring is typically given during the proposal (from the proposer to the proposee), while wedding rings are exchanged during the marriage ceremony between both partners. And while an engagement ring typically features a prominent center stone, wedding rings don’t have one focal point per se. They feature either rows of smaller stones or simply a clean solitaire band. In this, they’re more like the super-talented backup singer whose role is to gracefully point the attention to the star: your engagement ring.

In contrast to engagement rings, there are relatively few restrictions on how wedding rings should be worn and how they should look. Even so, navigating the myriad of loose cultural traditions and style possibilities can often be overwhelming. So let’s answer all your most pressing wedding ring questions, one by one!

#2: How should my wedding ring look?

Again, the answer is: anyway you’d like! There are very few customs concerning the actual design of a wedding ring. Here is a rundown of the most popular options.

Eternity ring or open ring?

ETERNITY RINGS

In some cultures, it’s a custom to wear circular eternity rings. In this case, the continuity of an eternity ring is considered to represent a couple’s endless love and their everlasting unity.

However, an eternity ring isn’t for everyone – non-circular rings are also a lovely option. This is particularly the case for anyone whose center stone is elongated – like a marquise, oval, or pear – and prevents the engagement ring from sitting flush with a round wedding ring. Two excellent alternatives are custom-curved rings, or open rings.

CURVED WEDDING RINGS

If your engagement ring has a distinct shape, your wedding ring can curve to accommodate your center stone. This gives your wedding set a unique interlocking quality. As an added bonus, the curved wedding rings’ complementary shapes reduce friction on your skin by preventing unnecessary slippage.

OPEN WEDDING RINGS

Or, you can choose to wear an open ring. Though less common, open wedding rings are gaining popularity. These unique pieces complement many wearers’ unique styles, and they go beautifully with an elongated center stone.

Stones or classic?

In Judaism, the wedding ring is traditionally an unadorned, simple band that’s free of engravings or precious stones. In other cultures, there are no specific customs regarding wedding ring decoration. Diamonds? Yes. Gemstones? Yes. Classic? Yes.

GEMSTONES

The beauty of gemstone wedding rings is the huge selection! Sapphires, rubies, pearls, emeralds…it’s a positive smorgasbord of sparkle. You can always choose a particular stone simply for its beauty, but you can also embrace certain stones’ meanings. For instance, you may inlay your wedding rings with your respective birthstones, zodiac signs, or stones that are particularly lucky for you.

CLASSIC

Classic wedding rings complement absolutely any engagement ring. The simplicity of a classic metal band directs all the attention to your engagement ring. So if you’re struggling to find a matching wedding ring, or you simply want to highlight your engagement ring, then a classic wedding ring could be the style for you.

#3: Which hand should I wear my engagement and wedding ring on? 

Which hand, and which finger, on which rings are worn changes radically around the world. Even in Europe, in which rings are almost always worn on the fourth finger – the ring finger – there are at least 3 common ways to wear a wedding set.

On The Right Hand

Catholic and Eastern European tradition dictates that the wedding and engagement ring both be worn on the right hand. The engagement ring is removed before the wedding ceremony, and after the wedding ring is slipped on during the ceremony, the engagement ring is replaced on top of it. The custom of wearing the wedding set on the right hand comes from an ancient Roman belief that the left hand was untrustworthy. In fact, the Latin word for “left hand” shares the same root as the modern-day word “sinister.”

On The Left Hand

On the other hand – *chuckle* – the Anglican church started doing things a bit differently following their separation from the Catholic church. By wearing both rings on the left hand, they rang in a new era of reformation by eschewing old “sinister” traditions. And this custom continues in Protestant cultures today, where the wedding ring is placed on the left hand during the wedding ceremony, and then the engagement ring is slipped on after it. Many people enjoy the symbolism of wearing their wedding ring closest to their heart, since it highlights the importance of marriage. 

Since the engagement ring is worn on the left hand after the proposal, many brides make this work by temporarily changing the hand on which they wear their engagement ring; during the wedding, they slip it onto their right hand before returning it to their left, over their new wedding ring.

On Different Hands

However, the engagement ring and wedding ring don’t have to be worn on the same hand. If it’s more your style, you can wear them on opposite hands. Spread the glitter around, as it were. In Spain, for instance, the engagement ring usually goes on the left hand, while the wedding ring usually goes on the right. 

So – there’s no dominating tradition regarding where to wear your wedding ring. It all depends on local tradition, religion, and personal style; not all of your personal traditions may line up. It’s possible that religiously, you prefer to wear your wedding ring on your right hand, but local custom dictates that you wear it on your left. 

In the end, it’s all up to you. However, you prefer to wear your wedding ring is the right way to wear it.

#4: How do I match my wedding ring to my engagement ring?

The answer: however you’d like. This is where you have utter freedom to express yourself – there are very few, or no, customs regarding how to match your wedding set. So what’s this mean for you? You have 3 main elements to mix and match: metal, stones, and style

We’ve taken one of our most popular engagement rings, the Petite Pavé, to show you all the ways you can choose a matching wedding ring. 

The Petite Pavé Engagement Ring

#5 What should I do if I can’t wear my wedding ring the “traditional” way?

Remember that tradition is a suggestion.

  • If you can’t wear your wedding ring on the “right” finger, wear it on another one!
  • If you can’t wear it on your hand, slip it onto a chain and wear it as a pendant necklace.
  • If your wedding ring doesn’t fit with your engagement ring, wear them on separate fingers.
  • If you don’t like rings, bracelets can be excellent substitutes.

The bottom line is – it’s your wedding, your marriage, and your ring. You can choose to wear it in whatever way suits you!

Met Gala looks 2019 camp jewelry red carpet

Met Gala Looks 2019 + Jewelry

We’re getting inspired by the dramatic “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme of this year’s Met Gala looks!

Met Gala looks 2019 camp jewelry red carpet

Despite some initial confusion (the gala theme was “camp” as in “campy” or theatrically overdone, not as in summer camp), red carpet celebs did not disappoint. We rounded up our favorite 2019 Met Gala looks and fine jewelry so that you can be just as extra.

These looks overwhelmed us in all the best ways:

1. Jared Leto + Ruby Diamond Ring

14K White Gold Three Stone Round Ruby Engagement Ring

One of the most unforgettable Met Gala looks of the year, primarily because Leto, er, thought a-head. The next thing we noticed, though, was his scarlet red, embellished gown. Steal some of that drama with a red-hot ruby engagement ring!

2. Zendaya + Aquamarine Diamond Ring

zendaya met gala with 14K White Gold Aquamarine And Diamond Floating Halo Ring

As if Zendaya’s spot-on Cinderella hair and styling weren’t enough, jaws dropped as her ball gown lit up at the wave of a wand. Want to capture the magic of the actress’s blue gown? Shop this aquamarine ring lit up by a floating diamond halo.

3. Naoki Kobayashi + Men’s Carved Ring

14K White Gold 6.5mm Comfort-Fit Blackened Mokume Band

This Japanese dancer’s metallic animal-print jacket made serious moves across the red carpet! Kobayashi had one of the more reserved men’s Met Gala looks of the night, and we still loved it. Get that striking print mixed with classic form with this carved men’s wedding ring.

4. Janelle Monáe + Pink Sapphire Necklace

janelle monáe met gala with 18K White Gold East-West Set Oval Halo Pink Sapphire And Diamond Necklace

It’s almost impossible to keep Monáe off these red carpet lists because she always takes incredible risks. In this case, we’re so glad she was thinking pink. For a similar bold, graphic burst of color, get our pink sapphire halo necklace.

5. Katy Perry + Chevron Drop Earrings

Katy Perry Met Gala with 14K White Gold Leaves Cascade Diamond Drop Earrings

Perry transformed into a tres-chic chandelier that actually lit up. We can’t help but connect this to Zendaya’s light-up dress, mostly because Katy Perry totally looks like Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast. Fall under the singer’s spell with these dangling, sparkling earrings.

P.S. Get the details on Katy Perry’s engagement ring here!

6. Priyanka Chopra Jonas + Gemstone Necklace

Priyanka Chopra Jonas Met Gala with 14K Yellow Gold Yellow Orange Sapphire And Diamond Cluster Bar Necklace

We’re floored by this entire Met Gala look, from Chopra Jonas’s bold hair and makeup to those colors cascading down her dress. If only there was a way to wear that sparkle and color combo any time… Oh wait. There is. Shop this gemstone and diamond cluster necklace!

7. Saoirse Ronan + Blossoming Diamond Ring

Saoirse Ronan Met Gala with 14K Yellow Gold Blossoming Vine Diamond Engagement Ring

That silhouette, that fire, those bright, shining colors – and somehow it all goes together flawlessly! Mirror the gold swirling detail on the sides of Ronan’s look with this side-stone blossoming vine engagement ring. Then, check out of GoT blog for more dragon dazzle 😉
