Anyone who knows anything about fashion knows that no outfit is complete without proper accessories, and no accessory is hotter right now than stackable rings. There are, however, some rules to bear in mind when choosing the right stackable rings for you, so I thought I’d share some of them with you to help you to make the right choice.

Size Matters

This point is two-fold – firstly, if you have big hands, wearing rings which are too big will make it look like you’re wearing knuckle dusters, and if you have super dainty hands you also don’t want to wear rings which will overwhelm you. Also, consider the fact that if you’re wearing several rings at once, you want to make sure they work together as several rings which are too big will be way too much, regardless of your hand size.

Styling

In the past, the idea of wearing gold and silver together was a huge no-no, but these days it’s actually really trendy to combine your metals. If you are new to this trend, you could try to stack rings by the colour of the metal – you could combine white gold with silver and platinum, as they all have a similar tone. Another idea is to stack them according to the metal. Wearing a rose gold ring along with a yellow and white gold ring looks great.

Ring Type

Something you also need to think about when it comes to stacking rings is to think about the style of the individual rings. While each ring can be different, you don’t want to try stacking rings which really don’t go together – for example, if you’ve got a gorgeous antique cameo ring, that’s not going to look right alongside something ultra modern and geometric. Try to pick a theme or shared attribute between your rings and stick to it.

Gems

Too many gems in your stackable ringsAnother thing to consider is whether your rings have gemstones in them – mix too many different gemstones and you’re going to end up looking like Thanos in the Infinity Gauntlet. If you have a statement ring with a large stone and want to wear other, smaller rings with gems, try to acth them as closely to the main stone as possible, OR stick to a scheme, such as rings with pastel stones so that they coordinate with one another.
