So many rings, so many different ways of wearing them…what is a girl to do?! Lately I’ve been taking a look at my ring stacks each day and sort of “analyzing” them. After all, I choose them every morning on a whim, almost instinctively based on what I’m feeling that very moment. Instagram has been an awesome tool for acting as a diary of sorts–a ring diary–capturing so many feelings, emotions and bits of everyday life in each photo of my daily ring choices. It is incredible to look back at photos from a year ago or even two years ago, look at my ring stack and instantly know so much more going on in the photo besides which rings I’m wearing!
What have my latest gold ring looks revealed this time around?! These five photos share some styling tips that anyone can adopt and can help steer you in the right direction when deciding what to buy next for your jewelry wardrobe! Let’s take a look:
Look One/Style Tip: Wear all the same designer at once!
Yes, mixing designers and old/new jewelry is fun and all, but have you ever worn lots of rings from the same designer?! If the designer has a distinctive aesthetic, it is emphasized even more if you wear many of their pieces at once. In this photo, I’m wearing all Communion by Joy–her bohemian, laid-back feel shines through, and all three play off one another.
Look Two/Style Tip: Stack antique rings all from the same Era!
Again, mixing is usually my go-to look, but wearing lots of rings from the same Era is an awesome look! In this photo, I am wearing all Victorian Era–with many rings having an untold history and sentimental secrets that will forever be untold. The blue enamel one, for example, is 14k gold and on the inside it is inscribed “13th Sept. 1869,” so intriguing! All these are available at Arrow & Anchor Antiques.
Look Three/Style Tip: If you’re going for a bold look, remember to balance!
If I want to make a bold statement with your rings and are trying to put a ring on almost every finger, it is all about balance! Leave at least one finger free and stack similar widths–in this photo I noticed it looked better to make the height match up as well–so I used either wide bands or two rings stacked on top of one another. Balance turned out to be more important than I thought!
Look Four/Style Tip: Put a bow on it!
I’ve had these bow rings in my collection for years and I always look them over. They are nice on their own, but I rediscovered from an old Instagram post that if you stack them with the right ring, they look like a present! A solitaire looks best paired with a bow, but in my photo, I have a small cluster as one of my pairings. Next time you see a gold bow ring, purchase it and create your own “present” on your finger!
Look Five/Style Tip: Try antique baby rings as midi-rings!
It is no surprise, I’ve been personally collecting baby rings and wearing them as midi-rings for a few years now. If you haven’t tried out the midi-ring, you must! If you think it will be uncomfortable or you will lose the ring, it does take awhile to get used to. I’ve also worn antique baby rings on my pinky, which is just as fun, but a little more safe.
