Stacked up: Rings that layer
Sep 18, 2013
What's better than a stunning ring? Two, three, four or five of them - especially in varying metals, hues and sizes.
Countless Hollywood stars have been rocking layered rings lately for a casual chic vibe. Jennifer Garner is one celeb that's been seen sporting stacked diamond eternity bands, which stand out far more than a traditional ring. Katie Holmes, Kate Hudson and Maggie Gyllenhaal are three more starlets who have embraced the understated look. Still, you might be too timid to try the trend. When executed poorly, a stack of rings can look distracting or downright tacky. However, by following these tips, you can build up some layers on your fingers in a way that's chic and - more importantly - tailored to fit your individual personality and tastes.
For those that want a classic look, a stack of silver is timeless. The Bezel-Set Simulated Birthstone Sterling Silver Classic Eternity Band - rectangular gems give the piece an slightly unexpected boho effect that doesn't stray too much from the traditional look. The advantage of silver is that it goes with nearly any ensemble, day or night.
Looking to make a flashier fashion statement? Gold jewelry is definitely the way to go. The Baguette-Cut Birthstone 14k Gold-Plated Eternity Band Stack Ring is another alternative with an almost regal look that is bound to catch some attention. Gold rings are a great way to add some glamor to an otherwise drab outfit.
Edgy and eccentric
If you're not one for conventional styles, there are other options for stacking that can express your offbeat fashion sense. The Emerald-Cut Simulated Birthstone 18k Yellow Gold Plated 5-Stone Ring is perfect. The claw-like setting has a raw, romantic effect while the emerald-cut stones recall the vintage rings in your grandmother's jewelry box.
