If you're about to join the approximately 2.13 million American couples currently living in holy matrimony, congratulations. A lifetime of happiness and laughter with the person that means the most to you is hard-won, and it's a thing to be celebrated for many years to come.
Wedding rings are a symbol of this love that you can carry on your person for the rest of your life. Read on to take a look at one of the coolest options available to you- stackable wedding rings- and examine why they're awesome, how to wear them, and what styles will look best on you and your new spouse
What Are Stackable Wedding Rings?
In a lot of cultures, stacked wedding rings are the only way to go. For example, in nations like Scandanavia, women often wear three rings on their ring finger. One is the engagement ring, another is the wedding ring, and the third for when she learns that she's going to be a mother.
The concept of stacked wedding rings has been blowing up in the US in recent years. Engagement rings are usually beautiful and more detailed than wedding bands are, so people like to wear them all throughout their marriage. They're extremely fashionable, and many people like the symbolism of sealing their wedding between two bands.
Usually, in an attempt to make the rings symmetrical, a third ring will be added underneath the wedding ring on an anniversary. Layering is big in the fashion world and rings benefit from layers, too. Plus, stacked rings just give you (and your marriage) a little extra shine and luster.
How to Wear These Accessories
Wearing stackable wedding rings is nowhere near as hard as it sounds. In fact, the most challenging part of the whole process is finding your ring size, which is doubly hard if you're trying to surprise your partner with a new ring. Luckily, you can use this tool to measure your finger (or your loved one's) and get accurate sizing information.
Once you have your stackable rings, wearing them is easy. Simply place one ring on top of the other in the desired configuration. The best part is you can switch up the configuration whenever you want! You probably will want to wear your thin engagement ring on top, a slightly thicker wedding band in the center, and your anniversary/motherhood ring on the bottom. Chronology is key!
If you have gemstones on all of your rings, make sure to stagger them. Having them in a single vertical row will look strange and gaudy. It also can cause damage to the rings because they'll grate and bang against each other when you walk or move your hands.
If you're not in to stacking rings and don't like the feel/weight of jewelry on your hands, you can wear just one stackable ring on your finger!
Color and Style
Even traditionalists agree that you can wear pretty much any wedding jewelry with other pieces. There's nothing wrong with mixing and matching metals, stones, colors, and sizes.
However, you still are going to want to use common sense when matching your jewelry. Make sure that you use warm-colored stones with gold and cool-colored ones with silver. You also don't want to place gemstones in clashing colors together or you'll wind up with a really strange-looking set of stacked rings.
Wedding rings are really subtle and will likely be worn on a daily basis. Because of this, you can pair them with literally any outfit in your wardrobe. Still, if you wear a lot of cool colors, blue or green stones might be in order. The opposite applies to those who dress in warmer hues regularly.
Neutral hues are perfect for all outfits, so you may want to consider black, brown, and gray rings. If you're considering gemstones, diamonds are always your best friend. Moissanite is a great inexpensive alternative, but if we're honest, stacked wedding rings don't really even need to incorporate gems at all.
