woman with multiple rings

Just because you’re getting married doesn’t mean you have to put your other rings away. Whether you’ve got sentimental value in multiple rings or just like how your fingers look when you wear multiple rings, having a few rings on is a great way to spice up any outfit easily. 

Sometimes, though, stacking rings can be tricky. Whether you’re having trouble figuring out how to ensure your other rings don’t clash with your wedding ring and engagement ring, or you’re concerned about looking mismatched when wearing mixed metals, there’s no need to stress. Let’s explore how to look totally stylish while adorning your fingers with multiple rings. 

Should You Wear Multiple Rings?

Some shy away from wearing multiple rings because they think it’s tacky. While you can definitely go too far (eight statement rings on one hand does seem a bit much), you can also wear multiple rings quite tastefully if you’re deliberate about it. In short, if you want to, go for it! After all, wearing jewelry is all about expressing your personal style, so you should wear whatever makes you feel good.

Why Would You Wear Multiple Rings?

There are two main reasons: style and sentiment. The multiple ring look is definitely a popular style, so why not try it out and see if it’s for you? The sentiment aspect is also a strong candidate, though, especially if you’re getting married. If you have an engagement ring and a ring that holds significance (e.g., a family heirloom), you don’t have to pick between the two! And engagement rings and wedding bands are made to be worn as stackable rings. 

How to Wear Multiple Rings

Focus on Symmetry

Yes, you want to vary your sizes and styles (more on that in a second), but you don’t want to go crazy when layering rings. Varying ring sizes can provide a lot of stylistic depth, but there’s a law of diminishing returns, so you don’t want to go overboard pairing delicate rings with super thin bands and chunky statement rings. If you’ve got a Super Bowl ring and a 1-centimeter-wide band on the same hand, it’s just not a good look. Cool that you’ve got a Super Bowl ring, though.

Make Sure They’re Complementary

Notice we said complementary and not matching. While multiple rings of the same color are fine if it’s a classic and simple color like gold, it doesn’t work for every color. Even with classics like silver rings or gold rings, though, you’re better off varying ring styles, designs and textures to get a bit more visual intrigue. You can have four of the same gold bands on at once if you like, but it’s probably not the best choice. It works better to wear different types of rings that coordinate.

Stack Them

The simplest way to wear multiple rings is to buy ring sets, like stackable wedding bands, that are made to all go together. Along those same lines, bridal sets get you started with multiple rings perfect for daily wear.

Stackable wedding bands and bridal sets are both great choices if you aren’t fully comfortable with multiple rings yet and need a little extra style help to get you started. Stackable sets eliminate the guesswork and make it easy to experiment with wearing multiple rings. Once you’ve worn your stackable rings for a while and have a feel for what looks good (and what doesn’t), you can adjust the ones you wear and add new ones as you see fit.

Complement Your Skin Tone

This is a good rule for jewelry in general, but you want pieces that are going to complement your skin tone. If you don’t wear much in the way of jewelry, finding one ring that you love that complements your skin tone is the way to go. From there, you can buy pieces that complement that ring and easily wear multiple rings that suit you.

Does Gold or Silver Look Better on Dark Skin?

Silver and white gold work well for people with light skin and cool undertones. Yellow gold works best for individuals with darker, warmer skin and rose gold is a versatile option that works with most skin tones. 

Be mindful when choosing gemstones, too. When shopping for gemstone rings, choose stones that suit your style and work well with your skin tone. 

Try Mixing Metals

Who says you have to match metals when selecting your jewelry for the day? Wearing rings made from different metals can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be! The mixed-metals look has become increasingly popular in the last several years, and it offers a fun way to show off your unique style with different rings. 

Stack sterling silver and rose gold on your ring finger, or wear different metals on different fingers. Feel free to experiment to find color combos that work for you. 

Don’t Overdo It

The secret to wearing multiple rings is ensuring your jewelry looks stylish, not gaudy. If you adorn all of your fingers with cocktail rings, it’s going to be too much. But a single statement ring on your index finger paired with a simpler pinky ring could work. A plain thumb ring paired with a more ornate ring on your middle finger is a good look, too. As you learn to style multiple rings, you’ll discover that some pairings simply look better than others. 

Give Yourself Some Options

This is higher-level stuff, in fairness. Once you’re comfortable with multiple rings, get a few sets in different colors, styles or formality levels. From there, you’ll have plenty of rings you can mix and match to complement a range of outfits.

Just Go for It

Fashion favors the bold, as the saying goes. Technically, it was fortune, not fashion, but someone probably said that, too. Take a big swing at it and see how it works for you. The nice thing about buying multiple rings is that you don’t have to wear them all at once. 

Even if you choose a set of stackable bands, they look good on their own. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Just go out there and give it a try!
