Hi, loves! Emma here. I’m a bit jewelry obsessed, particularly when there’s an emerging trend. When I spotted this ring worn by LC awhile back, I’ve been searching for other stylish stacking (and over-the-knuckle) rings to add to my collection. (Oh, and P.S. – if you loved that ring, we found one that’s very similar at a fraction of the cost.) Since I’ve been oohing and aahing over stacking rings for some time, I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you today instead of keeping them all to myself. These make beautiful rings for the bride to wear on her wedding day (especially the personalized ones you’ll find below) or as gifts for her bridesmaids. Plus, I’ve gotta say… these also make wonderful Valentine’s Day gifts! If you love ‘em, be sure to pin them to a board so your beau knows what’s up. ;)
Stacking Rings / Knuckle Rings
In this collection, you’ll find stacking rings, knuckle rings, personalized rings, and gemstone stacking rings. Just in case you’re wondering, a stacking ring is one that is small enough to be paired with one or two other rings to appear like it’s a complete set. However, stacking rings are really versatile because you can wear them stacked, as single rings on a few fingers at a time, or you can mix-and-match your favorites to create new looks. Knuckle rings (also called over-the-knuckle rings) are worn over your knuckle, typically by itself, and is a versatile piece which can be worn on any hand without overwhelming your engagement or wedding ring. Take a peek at what we’ve found:
