The stacking means layering multiple ornaments together for an accentuated look.

Generally speaking, stacking jewelry, or layered jewelry is a new way to combine multiple pieces of jewelry to attain a fancy unique look. Stacking rings are the biggest part of the stacking jewelry trend as there are simply plenty of possibilities of combining different fingers on each hand, or what is more, on each finger. Therefore, searching for a "ring set" nowadays means something different it used to mean a few years ago.

To crown it all, the wearer can switch or add bands to express personal marks or style special occasions. It can be also called a ring set. A ring set used to mean a set of two wedding rings for man and woman but with the stacking rings trend that has already changed.

WHAT DOES A MIDI RING MEAN?
To start with, midi rings are also known as tea rings or memory rings. MIDI rings are mostly worn midway between the tip of the finger and the first knuckle of the finger. The midi ring sit on the finger above the lower knuckle. Although the style is characterized back to the time of chivalry and knighthood in the Middle Ages times, when they signified one being wealthy enough to not have to do much manual work, midi rings have become the “it” statement in accessories just within the past year. These classic rings are able to take on new life to add a fun twist. Pair a solid gold ring with a delicate silver midi ring above it.

CAN YOU WEAR RINGS ON YOUR KNUCKLES?
Knuckle rings are mostly worn above the middle finger. However, standard rings are different from knuckle rings. Having a knuckle ring enhances your fashion sense, draw attention to a good manicure and style.
wearing the ring low on your finger, you wear it above your finger's middle joint.
WHICH FINGER DO YOU WEAR STACKING RINGS?
To put it simply, on all of them. It all depends only on what's comfortable for you. First, start by paying attention to your fingers - There are no hidden secret or rule that guides or state the finger you should wear a ring or how many rings should be stacked on a finger. In conclusion the rule that guides the subject is balance. I recommend stacking three to four rings on my finger - a short stack of different sizes and a tall yet simple shape ring. In the photo example above, there're three rings stacked on the left index finger. Because this combination looks extra natural, most people are always asking me "Wow would you show me the ring?" simply not realising there are three of them.
HOW MANY RINGS SHOULD YOU STACK?
If you belong to rather traditional types, we recommend to stack a minimum of three rings - one for marriage, engagement ring, and external love ring (usually given during anniversary as a gift). But that's only a very modest way to start. You should go ahead and try to stack as many stacking rings as you like and as your fingers can bear! However, the number of the rings for stacking is not that important. All what matters is the balance and overall feeling from the whole hand. Keep reading for our tips on how to stack your rings and ring sets!
HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU SIZE UP WHEN STACKING RINGS?
Order true ring size if each band is 2mm or thinner. Order 1/2 size larger for bands wider than 2mm and if you plan on stacking at least three rings together. The reason for ordering the larger sizes is because the wider the rings stack, the more you need space for flexibility. However, this is very general advice, as each hand is very individual. In case this seems like too much hustle to you, check out some adjustable rings where you don't really have to worry about the size at all!
HOW DO YOU WEAR A LOT OF RINGS?
Keeping it simple should come first at this point. To keep it minimal, go face down and wear each ring across each finger. Applying the horizontal style of stacking allows you to create space in-between the fingers. You can also wear two rings on each finger and leave a little space between the two rings. The main point here is to feel comfortable with the rings. Of course, many of us don't really value comfort higher than the final look. The best way here is to experiment each day with different number of rings and watch yourself in usual daily situations. Some tasks such as grabbing something from your pocket might become incredibly difficult with dozens of rings on your fingers.

Over the years, most celebrities like Rihanna, Chiara Ferragni, and Kate Bosworth have used different jewelry on the red carpet. However, applying too many rings or a wrong mix would make you look more like a little girl who has been playing with her mom’s jewelry box. Likewise, most well-known celebrities know that a beautifully executed ring/nail close-up can equate to thousands of Insta double taps.
1. KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY
Another word for keeping it in the family is maintaining the style and era. Dainty pieces embellished with crystals look classic with edgy geometric rings that have silver and turquoise stone chunkier pieces. Also, stick to one style to avoid cohesion.
2. LESS MATCHY, MORE SKIN
Think of the way the traditional wedding ring met up with the engagement ring next. Now, try to retry the opposite of the point mentioned earlier. Note - The aim is to show off the skin and the rings fixed in-between.
3. EASE OFF ON OTHER JEWELLERY
Pick just one piece of necklace, go wild with earrings and leave wrists bare for maximum impact then match your ring theme - a perfect high/low balance.
4. KEEP THEM CLASSY (TO BALANCE GEO SHAPES)
5. MIX YOUR METALS
Today’s top-ranked jewelry comes in different shapes and quality “Silvers and Golds.” Now, if you try or apply the mixing method. The trick is to disperse them evenly (one hand is gold the other one hand silver is a big no-no) and use a piece that combines its all. Make sure the rest of your jewelry, say earrings, is a combination of both too if you can, for continuity.
