Anatomy of a Stack

Coco Chanel once said “Before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.”  Sorry Coco, but times are changing, and we are no longer afraid to bling it on!

That said, wearing the stacking look should be tasteful and harmonious.  We have compiled the below guide to help you master the delicate art form for your fingers, wrists and necklines.

Sure, go ahead, don’t be afraid to mix and match your metals.  Throw in a pop of silver to an otherwise monochrome gold.  The rule of thumb is to have interest and variety, but still maintaining a thread of cohesiveness.  If you want to stick to a single metal shade, be sure to vary the shape, size and texture of the jewelry to add intrigue.


Stack multiple rings on one finger and keep one finger bare.  You can stack smaller rings on top of each other to add impact.  Experiment with shapes and lines, try a combination of horizontal and vertical rings to create a negative space to avoid looking like finger overload.


Don't be afraid to show off your favorite pieces, give them the moment to shine. Think your index finger deserves some serious bling?  Make one finger your focal point and choose a statement piece to make it stand out.
