The Golden Rules of Stacking

  1. Pick a Hero -/- First up, it’s all about deciding if one ring will be your showstopper. Cocktail and signet rings were made for this role.
  2. Choose a Theme -/- Need gold or silver stacking ideas? Create an ode to your favourite metal with multiple rings in one tone. Other themes include mixing up your metals, pearls, gemstones, or texture. You can also mix and match your themes, or stick to one on one hand and another on the other. Express yourself however you want.
  3. Make It Meaningful -/- Your ring stack should be unique to you. From wedding diamond rings from our Missoma Fine collection to engravable styles, make yours one-of-a-kind. Semi-precious gemstones are supposedly packed full of spiritual properties. Bring good vibes wherever you go with them in your ring stack.

Stacking Rings

What’s better than one iconic ring? Bands on bands, mixed and matched. Our stacking rings are usually skinnier in width to help them effortlessly team together with your other favourites. Stacking your rings is also the perfect way to breathe new life into the styles you already own.

 

Chunky Statement Rings

Rings made for centre stage, you’re unlikely to fit any other bands on the same finger as these heroes but we're all about a one man show. That’s where the side stack comes in, where asymmetry is always your friend. Consider these your plus ones on any legendary night out, or the ultimate string in your bow for festival or event styling.

FAQS

Why do people stack their wedding rings?

The tradition of stacking wedding rings, often combining an engagement ring with a wedding band and additional rings, has become
increasingly popular. This trend is  representative of more than just aesthetics, the rings can be representative of love, personal style, and significant milestones.

For many, stacking symbolizes the journey of their relationship. The engagement ring signifies the initial commitment, the wedding band marks the start of the married life, and additional rings, like eternity bands, can represent anniversaries, the birth of children, or personal achievements. Each ring signifies a special moment, worn together to represent the love and growth of the relationship.

Beyond symbolism, stacking creates a wedding stack unique to its wearer. By combining different metals, gemstones, and band widths, individuals can create a stack that reflects their taste and complements their wardrobe.

Whether driven by sentimental value or a desire for self-expression, stacking wedding rings offers a beautiful way to celebrate love, commitment, and personal journeys.

Why are there 3 rings in a wedding set?

While traditionally consisting of two rings, the emergence of three-ring wedding sets has sparked curiosity.

The first two rings in a set typically comprise the engagement ring and the wedding band. The engagement ring symbolizes a promise to marry, often featuring a prominent gemstone, while the wedding band, typically plain or with minimal embellishments, signifies the official union during the ceremony. Both rings represent significant milestones in a couple's journey.

The third ring, often an eternity band, is not always part of a traditional set but is gaining popularity. It's typically gifted on significant anniversaries or milestones within the relationship (the birth of a child, buying a house), marking the couple's enduring love and commitment. Eternity bands often feature a continuous row of gemstones, symbolizing everlasting love.

However, the three-ring set doesn't hold a singular, universal meaning. Some couples choose to add the third ring for aesthetic reasons, seeking a balanced and visually appealing combination on their finger. Ultimately, the choice to wear three rings, and the meaning they hold, is a personal one, unique to each couple's story and love for one another.

How do you keep a stacked ring from moving?

Stacking rings are a jewellery staple for us all. However, these delicate rings can sometimes become a be fidgety, spin around or twist on your finger. Here are some effective ways to keep your stacked rings feeling secure and looking good:

1. Embrace the Fit: Ensure your rings are properly sized. A ring that fits snugly on your finger base, with minimal movement, provides a solid foundation for stacking. Consider getting your rings professionally sized, especially if you plan to wear them together frequently.

2. Ring Guards to the Rescue: These small, often spring-loaded devices fit beneath your rings, gently hugging your finger and preventing them from spinning or sliding. Ring guards come in various materials and sizes, allowing you to find the perfect match for your comfort and style.

3. The Power of Patience: If your rings are slightly loose, consider temporary solutions like invisible ring adjusters or even a small piece of soft cloth or yarn wrapped around the inner band. These options provide a slight cushion and friction to keep your rings in place until you can get them professionally sized.

4. Explore Permanent Solutions: For a long-lasting solution, jewelers offer services like adding sizing beads or incorporating "speed bumps.” These modifications alter the ring slightly to provide a more secure fit and prevent unwanted movement. Having a ring reset if its stone heavy is also a great way of making your ring stay put, distributing the weight better to keep it in one place.

Remember, choosing the best method depends on your budget, comfort level, and desired level of permanence. With a little effort, you can keep your stacked rings secure and enjoy their beauty and symbolism for years to come.

 

Are 2 rings on each hand too much?

Whether two rings on each hand constitute "too much" is a subjective question with no definitive answer. Ultimately, it boils down to personal preference, comfort, and the overall aesthetic you wish to achieve.

Considerations for Comfort and Cohesion:

Comfort: Wearing multiple rings can feel weighty and at times awkward, especially if they're bulky or catch on your fingers. It's vital to choose rings that fit comfortably and allow for natural hand movement.

Cohesion: Balancing the metals, styles, and sizes of your rings is key to achieving a cohesive look. Opting for similar styles or thematic elements can create a unified aesthetic, even with four rings.

Exploring the Spectrum of Expression:

Minimalist Approach: Some individuals prefer a more understated look, opting for one or two rings on a single hand. This approach allows each ring to stand out and avoids overwhelming the hand.

Statement Piece: For those seeking a bolder look, more rings can make a powerful statement. However, carefully selecting complementary rings and ensuring comfort are crucial for this approach.

Remember:

Confidence is Key: Regardless of the number of rings, wear them with confidence and comfort. Your personal style and how you carry yourself ultimately define your look.

Context Matters: Consider the occasion and attire when choosing how many rings to wear. A formal event might call for a more minimalist approach, while a casual setting offers more freedom for creative expression.

Ultimately, the decision of whether two rings per hand are "too much" depends on
your individual preferences and comfort level. Experiment, explore different combinations, and find what feels authentically "you" in the world of rings.

Which finger do you wear a stacking ring?

While tradition often dictates specific fingers for certain rings (engagement and wedding rings on the left ring finger), the beauty of stacking rings lies in its versatility. You have the freedom to wear them on any finger that feels comfortable and complements your personal style.

Popular Choices for Stacking:

Ring Finger: The most common choice, offering a classic and familiar look, especially when pairing your stack with an existing engagement or wedding ring.

Index Finger: A bold statement, ideal for showcasing larger or more statement pieces in your stack.

Middle Finger: Offers a balanced and symmetrical look, allowing the rings to be the center of attention.

Pinky Finger: Adds a touch of whimsy and delicacy, ideal for delicate stacking rings or creating a cascading effect. The pinky ring also a go-to for signet rings, which can be paired with a delicate band for a stacked look.

Beyond the Basics:

Multiple Fingers: Don't be afraid to experiment! Stacking across multiple fingers creates a unique and personal statement.

Mixing Metals and Styles: Play with different metals, gemstones, and ring widths to achieve a cohesive or contrasting aesthetic, depending on your desired look.

Remember:

Comfort is Key: Choose rings that fit comfortably on your chosen finger and allow for natural hand movement.

Balance and Proportion: Consider the size and style of your rings when choosing a finger. Bulkier rings might look better on the index finger, while delicate bands can flatter the pinky finger.

Ultimately, the finger you choose for your stacking ring is a personal decision. Embrace your individuality and let your personal style and comfort guide you in creating a ring stack that is uniquely you.
