If you’re into fashion, you probably know that jewelry can make or break an outfit. Rings, in particular, have become a popular accessory for both men and women. However, it can be challenging to decide which rings to wear and how to style them. That’s why we’ve created the ultimate ring layering style guide for 2023, whether you like wearing simple bands or a raw rose quartz ring.
First Thing’s First: What is Ring Layering?
Ring layering is simply when you wear multiple rings on one hand. It can involve mixing and matching different styles, metals, and stone colors to create a unique look. Ring layering is all about experimenting with different combinations to create a cohesive and stylish look that reflects your personality.
Here are some tips to help you achieve the perfect ring layering style:
Mix and Match Different Styles
Don’t be afraid to mix and match different ring styles. Combining simple and statement rings can create a unique and eye-catching look. Stacking multiple delicate rings can also create a beautiful and feminine look. Experiment with different styles to find the perfect combination that suits your taste.
Play with Different Metals
Mixing metals is a popular trend in the fashion industry. Combining gold, silver, and rose gold rings can create a stylish and modern look. However, if you prefer a more classic look, stick to one metal and experiment with different textures and finishes.
Create a Focal Point
When layering rings, it’s important to create a focal point to draw the eye. You can do this by selecting a statement ring to wear on one finger and layering more delicate rings on the adjacent fingers. This will create a balanced and cohesive look that is visually interesting.
Experiment with Stone Colors
Adding rings with different stone colors can create a beautiful contrast and add a pop of color to your outfit. You can choose rings with similar colors to create a monochromatic look or mix and match different colors for a more eclectic look.
For example, a raw rose quartz ring is a soft pink. It can create a very elegant look but you can transform it by pairing it with a metal band and a darker gemstone. This can create a more bold and eclectic look. Or you can wear another light gemstone, like aventurine, matching a cool green to look classy and trendy.
Consider the Proportions
When layering rings, consider the proportions of your hands. If you have shorter fingers, stacking too many rings can make your hands appear even shorter. On the other hand, if you have longer fingers, you can stack more rings to create a more dramatic look.
Ice Imports carries raw gemstone rings and beautiful sterling silver rings that range in size and shape. The raw rose quartz ring features a longer and bigger stone that will elegantly line up with your finger. Or you can choose a ring with a smaller, rounder gemstone to create a daintier look. Combining various proportions can also create an artistic look that will be inspirational and creative.
And the Occasion
When layering rings, it’s important to consider the occasion. A casual look might call for a more minimalist ring stack, while a formal occasion might call for a more elaborate and sophisticated look. When in doubt, keep it simple and elegant.
Don’t Forget About Balance
Balance is key when it comes to ring layering. If you’re wearing multiple rings on one hand, make sure to balance it out by wearing a statement ring on the other hand or by wearing fewer rings on that hand.
Experiment with Ring Placement
Experimenting with ring placement can help you create a layered look that is unique and personal. For instance, you can wear rings on your thumb, pinky, or even your knuckles to create a layered look that is unexpected and visually interesting. It doesn’t always have to be on your ring finger. Putting the raw rose quartz ring on your middle finger is actually a pretty powerful statement and will make your hand look symmetrical and strong. Meanwhile, placing it on your ring finger will look elegant and romantic.
Ring layering is a fun and creative way to express your personal style. By mixing and matching different styles, metals, and stone colors, you can create a unique and stylish look that’s all your own. Remember to experiment with different combinations and don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone.
