While they are not a new style, stacked engagement rings have grown in popularity in recent years. Along with their beauty, these rings also offer a way to customise your rings and wear your wedding and engagement ring along with any other rings you feel like wearing on any given day. Unlike conventional rings, these rings are typically fine and delicate, with thin bands and shapes that make them easier to stack.

How to Stack Wedding and Engagement Rings
There are a few different ways to stack your wedding and engagement rings with other rings. Some of the most important tips to keep in mind include the following:
Choose the ring style carefully
As we mentioned briefly above, stacked rings should be fine enough to easily stack without taking up your entire finger. Look for delicate rings that are made specifically for layering or rings with thin bands and settings that will allow easier stacking. You can also look for ring sets that are designed to work together. These rings feature shapes that allow you to layer rings in a variety of ways.
Choose the setting carefully
Prong settings work well for regular rings and they can work on stacked rings. They can also make it harder to easily layer rings, however. Instead, it is best to choose bevel cuts or pave style bands with settings that do not stand up too much or get easily caught on clothing. To add detail, choose different cuts or shapes such as triangles that fit together or fan shapes that also flow together.
Choose the ring design carefully
This includes your choice of stone and your choice of metal. You can easily pair yellow, rose and white gold if you are sticking to classic diamonds. You can also play around with colour, but make sure that you choose colours that offset each other without clashing. Although you can mix and match, it is best to stick to a combination that will work however you stack your rings. When ring styles are dramatically different, the effect will end up looking strange.
Choose the number of rings carefully
Consider the number of rings you want to add to the stack very carefully to make sure that you get the balance between an elegant stack and over the top layers. This is where fine bands are essential – they allow you to layer three or even four rings easily. When you add too many rings, you will lose the overall effect of this ring style. Instead, keep it simple and choose an engagement, wedding and accent ring to pair together.
