Stacking rings seems to be all the rage at the moment, and when a woman walks up the aisle in 2020, she will likely be wearing her engagement ring, ready for the wedding ring to be placed on the same finger. You may think that ring stacking is a new concept, but it certainly isn’t. Indeed, in Scandinavia, it is common for a woman to wear 3 rings on the same finger; engagement, wedding and motherhood ring.
Double Wedding Rings
It is trendy for a woman to wear two thin wedding rings, with her engagement ring between the two. If you would like to follow this trend, talk to one of the special jewellers that design and create custom wedding rings in Melbourne or a jeweller near you. They can help you to create a two-piece ring that sandwiches the engagement ring.
Keeping the Same Design
It is becoming exceedingly popular to have both engagement and wedding rings of similar styles, and you could commission a custom jeweller to design both engagement and wedding rings, which would be unique. If the rings are designed to be worn together, the jeweller would make sure that the rings sit nicely together, and with your input and the jeweller’s skill, the perfect rings for stacking can be created.
No Set Rules
When stacking rings, there are no rules, so you don’t have to worry about protocols, rather it depends on your personal preferences. You might, for example, prefer to wear your engagement ring on top of your wedding ring, rather than the other way around, or you might prefer to wear your motherhood ring as the first, with the engagement and wedding rings to follow.
Custom Made Rings
Many people are under the misapprehension that having a wedding or engagement ring made is more expensive than choosing a ring off the shelf, when in fact, customising a ring does not cost a lot more. You could, for example, have both engagement and wedding rings created by the same jeweller, which means the rings can easily be stacked. If you would like to discuss ring design with a trusted custom jeweller near you, an online search will bring up a list of local custom jewellers and you can begin to think about ring designs that can be stacked.
Mixing Metals, Stones & Colours
As mentioned previously, there are no hard and fast rules regarding ring stacking, so you can wear a platinum wedding ring with a rose gold engagement ring. You can also mix stones and colours, which does give you the opportunity to be creative, and if it feels right to you, that’s all that matters.
Stacking rings has become extremely popular, and if you wish to stack your diamond engagement ring with your wedding ring, make sure that the designs are compatible. A custom jeweller would be able to create a design that looks in keeping with the other rings that you plan to wear, which will ensure that the rings sit nicely together.
