3/ Oval Split Shank



Split shank rings are another popular ring style. This type of ring is also called a split band. As its name implies, the band splits to become two bands that are joined at the bottom.

How to Layer Stacked Wedding and Engagement Rings

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.

Wondering how to wear stacked engagement rings? Keep reading to find out how to create the perfect ring 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.

How to Choose an Anniversary Ring

Much as your engagement ring celebrates your upcoming nuptials, an anniversary ring celebrates the milestones that you have achieved together as a couple. Although these are most commonly given to women, men can also wear anniversary bands. Whether you have an upcoming milestone ahead or you simply want to celebrate your journey thus far, an anniversary ring can be a romantic way to honour the love that you share together each day, week, month, and year.

In this short guide, we take a closer look at this ring to find out how to choose the perfect ring, where to wear the ring, and which anniversary you can honour with this ring.

Choosing an Anniversary Ring

These are some of the most commonly asked questions relating to the anniversary ring. Keep reading to find out more.

Which anniversary should you honour

Most couples choose milestone anniversaries, such as the 10 year, 15 year, 25 year, and 50 year anniversaries. You can choose any anniversary, however. In fact, you don’t even have to choose your set anniversary. You could honour the day you met, the day your child was born or any other special day. What makes this ring special is what it represents. This will be something different for each couple. Choose the day that means the most to you rather than a fixed date.

How do you wear the ring?

There are a few ways to wear this ring. Some prefer to replace the engagement ring with this ring. Others prefer to layer the rings on the same finger. Some may even choose the other hand for this ring. Ultimately, it comes down to how you like to wear your rings and what feels right. However you wear it, think about the other jewellery you wear on a daily basis to be sure that the ring does not clash. That brings us to our next question…

What type of ring should you get?

Ultimately, this will come down to your personal preferences, of course. With that said, it is a good idea to choose a ring that can be easily layered or worn next to your engagement and wedding ring. A pave band or something minimal and simple will work well. A very large, ornate ring that overpowers your engagement ring may not work as well.

What else should you know about this ring?

That’s just about all you need to know, really. You could surprise your love with a ring on your anniversary but we suggest that you rather make the decision together or get her input for best results. This type of ring is a lovely way to pay homage to your marriage. Whatever type of ring you choose and however you wear it, this ring is sure to bring you just as much joy as your original engagement ring.

How To Determine Her Engagement Ring Size

If you are planning a surprise proposal, it will help hugely having an engagement ring that fits your love’s hand perfectly. One of the biggest mistakes made by hopeful grooms is not being fully sure of the ring size and using guesswork instead. This can end up costing more than you realise in the long run – especially if you have not taken any steps to ensure that the ring is one that will be adored at first site. If the ring is not quite her style and not even the right size, you will have to get it resized and possibly even redesigned.

Make sure that your love is sufficiently wowed from the moment that engagement ring is slipped onto her finger with these surprisingly practical tips.

Getting Her Engagement Ring Size Without Her Knowing

How exactly do you go about figuring out her ring size, then? For starters, you could try one of these simple tips to make sure that you have a good idea of her engagement ring size.

Ask her friends or family.

One of the simplest ways to determine her ring size is to get a bestie or sister involved in the process. Most women have a good idea of ring sizes. A co-conspirator will be able to sneak into her jewellery box and borrow or size a ring, then tell you the size. She may also be able to give you some tips on the type of ring your love would love the most, which will help make your ring quest even easier.

Be smooth.

You could also try a bit of subterfuge and pretend to be trying to find out how ring sizes work for a ring you want to resize for your mom or sister. The upside of this approach is that she will give you her ring size if she knows it or allow you to use a string or cable tie to measure her finger in relation. The downside is that she may well see through the smoothness and know exactly what you are plotting.

Wait until she is asleep.

For those who don’t mind a bit of danger, another tactic is to wait until she falls asleep and then very, very carefully tie a cable tie or string around her finger without her waking. This move can be daunting and should only be attempted on heavy sleepers. Make sure that you choose the right finger, too. Getting the wrong hand may make things a bit tricky as most people have a hand that is slightly bigger than the other.

Do a ring trace.

If you are not able to borrow a ring or get outside help, you could also take one of her existing rings and trace it onto a piece of paper when your love is not in the room. Make sure that you trace carefully, enough times to provide a clear outline. You can then take this bit of paper to your jeweller. They will be able to work out the size from there. This should be a last resort however as tracing is not always as accurate as having a ring that is worn daily or having an exact size.

The good news is that you should only need to try one of these moves to get a reasonable idea of her ring size. We suggest starting from the top and taking it from there depending on your success. Once you have an idea of her ring size, you can get onto the fun part… choosing the perfect engagement ring for your love.

Exquisite Asymmetrical Engagement Rings

If perfectly balanced engagement rings are not your cup of tea, you may find that asymmetrical rings offer something a bit more your style. As the name implies, these rings do not follow standard design principles. Instead, they feature off-centre stones, interesting arrangements, off-beat designs, and, very often, unusual details that further add to their charm.

These rings are popular with future brides who prefer a modern bohemian style over a classic style. Keep reading to find out how asymmetrical engagement rings infuse interesting visual detail into their design.

Fall in Love With These Quirky Asymmetrical Engagement Rings

Ideal for those who prefer to colour outside of the lines, asymmetrical engagement rings are proof that rings can be just as beautiful without being symmetrical and balanced. Here are some lovely asymmetrical rings to inspire your ring choice.

Minimal Clusters

Pink Halo

Exquisite Asymmetrical Engagement Rings - Pink HaloImage: kwiat.com

Black Diamond
