The classic wedding ring was elegant, simple and cute. It was just a band of gold. You shouldn’t be surprised to see modern wedding rings which can be as flashy and colored as engagement rings. There is a growing tradition for layering, and stacking rings are the best examples.
The Growing Layering Trend
Stacking rings are quite hot right now, with fashion ramps, celebrities, and fashion sites flaunting more and more stacks of bands. Layering was a trend mostly seen with clothes. It is now a great way to mix textures and colors in jewelry. One of the best ways to get on top of the trend is to maintain cohesive and clean looks.

If you can’t get enough with just one, try a midi ring on one finger and try some delicate styles on another finger.
The Magic of Mixed Metals
You can wear all the three colors of gold with your stacking rings. Create even more overall interest to the look by stacking gold colors on one finger and some other metal like silver on another finger. Depending on your likes, they can range from simple, slender and subtle stacking rings to something studded with gemstones. If you don't have the budget for diamonds, try something more affordable yet equally beautiful like moissanites. With some sparkle, the stacks can always get something more added to their grace. If mixing all the yellow, rose and white gold doesn't seem to be adding more variety, the addition of the right gemstones can certainly pep up your stylish ring. The trend has also caught up with newlyweds. Many stack different bands on their ring finger, creating a look with a stronger and bigger statement compared to the traditional engagement and band concept. Interestingly, the trend seems to be something that will be here for some time. Stacked rings are expected to stay here and will become even more popular.
