Stacking & Layering Rings Like a BOSS!
I've created 6 steps and 3 pre-styled sets for you to be a more confident stacker.
In this age of more online shopping, and less in-person events, you might be feeling like it's too hard to buy rings online. I want to take the confusion out, and make it really easy for you.
Lucky for me my mom and grandmother always wore lots of rings, on every finger possible. So when it came to layering them on my own fingers I think I've always just had the knack, thanks to them. Read on for my steps!
STEP 1: Know Your Sizes!
Know your rings sizes. And not just your ring finger. All fingers look good with rings on them!
RING SIZERS we have these handy dandy ring sizers available for FREE so we can get you on the right track for sizing and stacking. Use the code RINGBOSS in the check out to eliminate the shipping charges. This one is on me!
PERSONAL FAVE: My fave are the ring and the middle fingers. These are the most comfortable for me. But I love to switch it up with a combo of pointer finger and thumb occasionally.
PRO-TIP: Be aware of temperature and that-time-of-the-month size fluctuations. I switch one of my rings to another finger for a few days to deal with these fluctuations.
Step 2: Mixed Metal is GOOD
Purposefully mix gold tones and silver. They look amazing together. I promise. And don't be afraid to honor this rule through out your wardrobe - with necklaces for sure!
PRO-TIP: I have a little rule of thumb… think odd numbers. 1 brass and two silver or vice versa. Or one big ring beside 2 little rings. Similarly, one thick chain, with 2 dainty ones. You get the point. This applies to home decorating too. Things always look better with a little asymmetrical magic.
Step 3: Pile It On!
Pile it on and see how it feels. Wear it around for the day, and adjust if necessary. Once I find something comfortable I leave it. Like for a long time. I've been wearing the same ring stack for a while. But it HAS evolved. Especially as I've fallen in love with new pieces. I find a way to make them work.
PRO-TIP The more you stack on a finger the larger the size you might need for all the rings in general, for a good fit. The skin under your ring needs a place to go. This will be a helpful tip when experimenting with all the rings in your jewelry box.
...a ring that fits your middle finger may be a little too big for your ring finger, but by stacking a smaller ring on top of it you may be able to increase your options for wear... — -Rebekah J.
Step 4: Smaller Keeps Bigger!
Have a ring that feels a little too big? Stack one on top that’s more true to size to keep it on.
PRO-TIP: A ring that's much too big will just spin around on your finger and probably be annoying so don’t go too big here. For example, a ring that fits your middle finger may be slightly too big for your ring finger, but by stacking a smaller ring on top of it you may be able to increase your options for wear by having a ring that fits more than one finger.
Step 5: Don’t forget about the little guys.
You’ve got 5 fingers on each hand! Switch it up, use all your digits! Pinkies and thumbs count and are actually really comfortable, and SUPER fun, when you find the right ring for them. It might be something super simple like a plain band on the thumb, but even something like our U-Ring looks so bad ass on my thumb. Have you heard of midi rings? Midi rings are smaller sized rings that fit on the space between your 1st and 2nd knuckle, close to the tip of your finger See photo in section above. These are a blast to play with. I've found that a midi that fits on my pointer finger, also fits well on my pinky finger. Having a ring that fits more that one finger will increase your options for layering and wear.
PRO-TIP: I can modify our rings to fit larger sizes, just ask! I wanted a thumb ring so I stretched a U-Ring up to a size 10 so that I could wear it. I love it.
OK are you ready for my final step?
The coolest one yet?
It's going to blow your mind...
Step 6: Precious + Everyday = WINNER
Mixing diamonds and everyday jewelry? YES YOU BET!! I love the organic opulence it gives. Some might find that layering with their wedding rings a bit of a no-no, but in my opinion it’s a real yes-yes!
My style has changed a bit since I got married, and I love that adding a layer of my organic feeling pieces gives a look that’s closer to what I might pick for my wedding set today. And, adding a ring to my wedding set doesn't make me love my husband any less - or him me for that matter. ❤️
