No one is quite sure who started this jewellery trend, but whoever thought of it is a genius. When was the last time you heard a woman complain about having too many rings? That’s right, never!

While women have been stacking their wedding band and engagement ring together for a long time now, the stackable band trend allows us to stack on many rings, creating a unique look.

The popularity of stackable bands has left some people bewildered. What is it about this trend that women find irresistible? Why exactly is this trend getting more popular with each passing day and not fading away like most trends tend to do? Well, we’ve got the answers right here. Here are the top reasons why stackable rings are so popular.

Break the rules

Who came up with the concept of one ring per finger, anyway? Why should we restrict ourselves to a stingy one-ring rule? After all, rules are meant to be broken, right? Flaunting multiple bands on one finger is just so much more everything.

It’s more bling, more variety and more pizzazz. If you want something a little different for your wedding. If the idea of a traditional wedding or engagement ring does not excite you, then this is the way to go.

Never settle

They are the perfect option for go-getters—women who know what they want and are not willing to ‘settle’ for anything less. Why can’t you have all that you want? The idea behind stackable rings is that you can add on to them as time goes by.

Starting with an engagement ring, stack on a wedding band to that, and then adding more stackable rings to the growing collection for anniversaries and to mark other special occasions in your life.

The significance

A stackable band collection can have a lot of significance. You can buy the bands to mark the birth of each of your children, or to symbolise a big step in your life, such as a big promotion at work.

Each stackable ring on your finger could hold a cherished memory. Every time you look at the bands, they will remind you of all the important milestones in your life.

Wearable luxury

Unlike traditional engagement and wedding rings, stackable rings do not boast of one large diamond. With tiny diamonds throughout the band, stackable rings are ‘wearable’ luxury items when compared to their more ostentatious counterparts.

Gone are the days when jewellery was locked up in a safe, taken out only during special occasions. Women these days want to show off their jewellery, want the world to know that they are in love. And stackable rings let them do just that without being gaudy.

Customisable

They are highly customisable. You can pick and choose the size and colour. You can mix and match platinum with gold to create a nice contrast and create your own unique collection.

It is relatively easy to find a ring that meets your needs, yet the end result of your collection is highly exclusive and completely yours alone. That’s a great advantage when it comes to stackable rings. Knowing that you can add on to your collection in the future without much hassle is a definite plus.

They also cater to your personal preferences. If you’re someone who likes wearing a lot of jewellery, then you can wear many rings stacked up. But if you are a minimalist, then just two simple bands together will be perfect for you. No matter what your style, you can make these bands work for you.

Timeless

Stackable rings are not just a fad. They are steadily rising in popularity because the idea and thought behind them is what makes them so very special.

When your jewellery can tell a story, a story of your life—your struggles and triumphs—it becomes so much more than just a piece of expensive ornament. Each time a stackable band is added to your finger, it could mark a big milestone in your life. That is what makes them truly timeless.

With an eclectic range to choose from, stackable bands spoil you for choice. You and your partner can choose a different-looking band each and you can wear them together. Or you can opt to go for a more uniform look, stacking on bands that are the exact same in size, colour and style.

And that’s the reason for the immense popularity of these bands. They let you decide what you want and then get exactly that. No more settling for things, no more playing by the rules.
