In fact, if styled right rings can be statement pieces and take the spotlight.

1. Rings You Should Have

More often than not, people have a predefined sense of fashion, and their accessories reflect the same. And this could possibly act as a hindrance as with similar designs of rings, it is difficult to achieve different looks. That’s why the first and foremost thing to understand is that – styling is about experimenting.

So, one step in that direction is to add a wide variety of rings to your collection. This will give you more options to mix and match, invent and re-invent your looks. Some must-haves for everyone are plain metal rings, sleek gemstones rings, cocktail rings, classic solitaire, vintage designs and even rings fashioned in different metals.

2. Styling Rings

It is a well-known fact that at the end of the day which rings you wear and how you style them is a personal call. However, we suggest you wear different rings, swap them, try some new combinations to figure out what looks and feels the best.  

While you start experimenting, here are 10 simple, and easy tips that will probably come in handy…

• Your Skin Tone Matters

The rings that you choose to where, the colours that you pick is obviously a call that you make. But if you are looking for inspiration on how to begin styling then maybe you should start with taking your skin tone into consideration. This is because not all hues and shades sit very well with every skin tone. So, go with something that looks best with your skin tone and accentuates it, then the overall effect will certainly be stunning. Generally, most experts say that rose and yellow gold are well-suited with warmer skin tones whereas white gold and silver flatter cooler skin tones.

• Pick A Finger

When you wear your rings, you can always evenly distribute them across all your fingers. On the other hand, you can opt to create a unique, statement look by  stacking your rings on the same finger. So, if you are wearing a series of thin bands on different fingers, you can instead wear all of them on your ring or middle finger. This becomes the focal point of your look, gives an impression of a larger ring and adds a classy yet chic touch to your appearance.

• One Metal Works Fine

One easy way to coordinate all the different rings that you want to wear together is to make sure that they are of the same metal. This way all of them will appeared match well and give you a refined look. And you don’t have to restrict this rule of thumb to your rings only. Feel free to extend it to the other accessories that you are planning to wear as well.  In simpler words, if you pick all silver rings, then keep your necklace, earrings, bracelets – everything silver. Likewise for an all-gold look as well.

• Gemstones Are Worth It

Glittering and vibrant gemstones are known to steal the spotlight instantly. Rings designed with these colourful jewels are nothing short of being head turners. Hence, if you really want to build your rings collection then we’d say you invest in gemstone
rings. Such creations will serve as inspirations and take your overall look to another level. If you are styling these gemstone rings, then you pair them with other smaller designs with the same metallic finish. For example, when you wear a turquoise cocktail ring in yellow gold then highlight the bright blue gem with other sleek gold rings (preferably only metal designs).

• Join the Pearl Gang

Be it 1920’s or 2020’s, pearls will always be in style, even though they aren’t trending at any given point. These glorious orbs are timeless and considered a classic, something no one can ever go wrong with. Hence, when you feel that your ring set-up isn’t coming together, then simply slip on a pearl creation to add the finishing touch. Just remember to add a pearl ring with a large pearl and of the same
metal as the other rings so it serves as a statement piece.

• Be Width Smart: A major dilemma when styling rings comes in the form of mixing and matching rings with thin and thick bands together. A simple rule to follow is that you wear the thickest band on your little finger and then go inwards. This way with reducing sizes, you will have the thinnest ring on your index finger. This way all your rings will have ring of varying thickness creating a stunning, ombré effect. Even if you are opting to wear geometric rings, you can still follow this arrangement. This will be a sure-shot way to get an eye-catching look.

• Stack It Up:
Are you stuck in a situation wherein you have multiple rings but on the thinner size? Well, then it is the time to learn stacking. To put things in perspective, stacking as the word goes refers to wearing one ring over another, making a stack. Sounds simple? It could be, but make sure that the ring stack appears put together and stylish as well. Having said that, it is definitely true that stacking your rings in an
aesthetic manner is a fine art. To master this skill, you may need to stick to certain pointers.

- Go for rings in different sizes. Look at it that while some rings may settle at the base of your fingers, others may sit-well just above your knuckle.

- While metal shade is not a consideration, you may want to have your rings on the thinner side so you can create a statement piece by wearing multiple pieces.

- If you want to wear ring stacks on multiple fingers, then do go ahead. However, leave one finger blank to balance out the look.

• Layering Is An Art:
Now layering is a term that is often spoken in context of clothes, but the same concept can be applied to your rings as well. Wonder why? Simply because very thin rings with dainty shapes when layered together create a striking yet delicate look. So, if you have thin rings with pretty geometric details like circles, arrows or more, then simple stack them. This complete collection will give out a sleek, trendy vibe.

• Make a Statement:
Have a vast, sparkling collection of family heirlooms that you are completely in love with. Then why stop from wearing and flaunting them? You could wear one statement piece at a time or adorn them all at the same time, one ring on each finger. It is your personal decision to make. When you wear a single statement ring, keep in mind to wear other accessories that are understated so your ring takes the centre stage. Whereas, when you have multiple statement pieces across your hand, it takes bold and edgy to a completely another level (imagine Phoebe!).

• Get Personal:
Everything said and done, wearing a ring that is close to your heart lends a precious, personal touch to your appearance. Although, we can say a lot about fashion-safe choices, having rings with emotional significance has its own appeal. If you do have a particular ring that holds immense sentimental value then don’t shy off, flaunt it. When you style such creations, wear other rings that accentuate this piece or simply keep your other fingers bare. And if you are wearing other accessories, then opt to wear minimalistic jewellery in the same metal as your ring.


All the pointers mentioned above are tried and tested methods that have been winning the fashion game. Trust us, adopting these in your styling routine will make the whole process simpler and get you a ton of compliments. Now are you ready to show off your numero uno dressing-up game? Then go ahead and let the styling battles begin!!!
