Congratulations! You’re engaged! And likely sporting a sparkly new something on your ring finger. You’ll be showing off your hands a lot, and with the latest trend of ring stacking, you can make your sparkler stand out. Adding more rings can complement your stone, and is quickly becoming a hot trend, with mixed metals, different widths and levels of sparkle adding some pizzaz to highlight your big news.

Balancing Your Look

You want your engagement ring to stand out, and that means choosing rings for your other fingers that balance it out. If your stone is set high, try stacking skinny, thin bands with thicker ones, or straight channel-set stones that let it stand out from the rest. You can mix different colour gemstones and diamonds, or even stick to one colour stone that highlights your engagement ring. For warm coloured stones, rose gold and yellow gold can bring out their beauty, and diamonds offset with white gold, platinum or sterling silver can shine even brighter.

Something Old, Something New

While the newest addition to your ring finger remains the star of the show, try stacking rings on other fingers with ones you may already have to give your favourites a new lease on life. Mixing the new with the old is a perfect analogy for your engagement news and the next step in your life.

Singled Out

Your engagement ring may stand alone on its designated finger, while the rest are available to stack and add as you wish. Check out some inspiration of ring stacks you like and try to recreate them in a way that makes your unique ring stand out. There’s no right way, just the way that’s right for you. For a more minimal look, try a one stack on your right hand with a few thin bands, or even a thin ring on the thumb of your left hand. Stay away from statement rings or stones bigger than your engagement ring to make sure the attention stays on you and your fiancé’s important announcement!

Life and Style

Select complementary rings in the similar style of your engagement ring for a complete look. If your ring is art deco, look for other art deco patterned rings. If your ring is classic, and simple, you’ll want to find simple bands with minimal jewels to mix with and enhance your engagement ring.
