Nervous about mixing metals? Start slow and mix rings of the same metal in different textures.
A little layered jewelry can instantly give the world a peek at your complex, creative style. Artfully stacked rings lend a charming touch to a simple outfit, and as you’ll probably discover, mixing and matching your rings can make old staples feel like edgy new additions.
There’s not really a right or a wrong way to layer your rings. Here's my best advice: bravely experiment until you find a combination that suits you.
You may learn that you love mixing metals—if so, go for it! The formerly hard and fast rules of jewelry wearing don’t really apply to this fun trend. In fact, as you play around, you’ll probably start breaking a few of you own personal fashion guidelines.
Don't be afraid to get a little crazy. See what happens when you feature an oversized ring with more delicate rings in different metals.
If you have no idea where to begin, here are a few suggestions to get you started:
In the Modern Meets Organic Wedding Set, different textures of recycled gold complement each other while reflecting the multi-faceted personality of the wearer.
Stack different colors of Branch Bands for a modern, eclectic look.
Find balance. Keep a finger bare on each hand and decorate the rest. Also, try featuring a single oversized ring and adorn the rest of your had with delicate bands.
Rose gold, white sapphire, diamonds, yellow gold, and...beads!
What are your favorite ways to combine jewelry?
