Stackable rings are a growing trend for engagement rings, wedding rings, and everyday jewelry wear, and they are a gorgeous, glittery option for showing one’s personal style. But just what are stackable rings, and how can you choose the right style for your personality and your own fashionable flair? This definitive guide to stackable rings has all the information you need to get stacking.


In this guide, we will explain the following:

  • What are stackable rings?
  • The original stackable ring
  • Coordinating stackable rings
  • 7 Tips for stacking your rings
  • How will you stack up?

What Are Stackable Rings?

Stackable rings are simply rings that are meant to be layered or “stacked” on the same finger, with more than one ring worn at a time. They are generally thinner than more classic ring styles so the finger is not overwhelmed, and they do tend to coordinate, even if only loosely. Because stackable rings can be switched and swapped very easily, they are the ultimate in jewelry personalization, customization, and creativity.


How to Wear Stackable Rings?

Rings may be stacked on more than one finger at a time, and many people opt to wear stacked rings on several fingers simultaneously for a glamorous look. The rings might fight tightly or snugly together for a precise and polished look, or they may be looser with space between them for a shabby chic, bohemian style.



Cost of Stacking Rings?

Because stackable rings are thinner and individually each ring is less elaborate than many ring designs, they can be less expensive than larger, more intricate rings. This allows you to “build” your rings over time into more elaborate looks, as you add different stackable options to your jewelry collection. This also means that your stackable rings can better reflect changes in your personality, style, and preferences, as you can always change how you stack rings to better suit your mood, layering different rings together for different meanings without necessarily purchasing a completely new ring collection.


The Original Stackable Rings

Stacking rings has been done in one specific circumstance for many years – brides have often “stacked” their engagement and wedding rings together into a coordinated set. Whether these are individual coordinating rings or if the engagement ring has been paired with a wrap, enhancer, or guard to turn it into a wedding set, these stacks have timeless appeal as bridal sets. In time, an eternity band may be stacked with a bridal set to represent an anniversary or a renewal of vows. Today’s stackable rings, however, go far beyond engagement rings and wedding rings, and may be worn for many reasons.


Coordinating Stackables

How closely different stackable rings match is a personal decision, and a stack’s style can be as simple or complex as desired. Metal types – yellow or white gold, platinum, silver, etc. – can be the same or may be mixed, while gemstone types and shapes can also vary. Some people prefer the look of rings thatblend well together, while others want more contrast so each ring stands out as an individual element. Ultimately, stackable rings are completely up to the wearer, giving them many ways to be personalized.

Tips for Stacking Rings

Just because stackable rings are so variable, however, does not mean that piling any rings on to one finger will create a luxe look. To make the most of stackable rings and keep them looking stylish…

• Odd Number

Wear an odd number of rings, which looks more aesthetically pleasing than an even number.

• Similarity

Choose rings of similar widths to wear together for a more refined, deliberate look.

• Care

Be sure rings will not rub together in a way that would cause scratching or damage.

• Statement

Consider wearing one larger “statement” ring on one finger, with stacks on other fingers.

• Comfort

Do not wear so many rings that the finger is restricted or uncomfortable.

• The Look

Consider leaving one finger bare so the hand doesn’t look overly cluttered.

• Finger Size

Check that the rings are appropriately sized for the finger where they will be worn. It is common to have different ring sizes on different hands or different fingers on the same hand.


How Will You Stack Up?

Stackable rings are a fun and creative jewelry trend, one that can be flexible and personalized for different styles, moods, meanings, and occasions. No matter how you choose to wear these rings, your stack is a reflection of you, and even as your style changes through the years, you can change how you wear stackable rings so these favorite pieces of jewelry can always be part of your personal fashion.
