A Guide to Stacking Your Jewelry
The Secret to Layering
Jewelry stacking is all the rage these days, but it actually goes all the way back to the 16th and 17th centuries in Europe. During this time, interconnected wedding bands, called gimmel rings, constructed of two or three hoops were wildly popular. The bride and groom-to-be would each take one hoop from the ring and wear it. Then, on their wedding day, the groom would take his hoop and transfer it to his beloved’s, locking the two parts of the ring together. The completed ring – a stack of hoops – symbolized the couple’s everlasting relationship and love.
Though times have changed, the reasons we layer our jewelry really haven’t. Just like that 16th century couple stacking a ring to commemorate their union, we layer our jewelry to represent significant events, memories and milestones. This makes the secret to stacking simple. Because there is no “right” or “wrong” way to layer your special moments. There is only the way that feels right to you. We’ll give you a few tips and pointers, but ultimately you get to decide what works best.
Layering Your Necklaces
When it comes to stacking your necklaces, the sky’s the limit. You can keep it simple by layering delicate gold chains with a small pendant or two to add depth or you can go wild and stack statement pieces to your heart’s content. You can even mix metals, combining yellow gold with silver, white gold with rose gold and more. Keep your eyes fixed on the heavens by layering this exquisite Hearts on Fire rose gold diamond star with this stunning white gold My Brightest Star necklace and finishing off with a stylish Ania Haie white gold crescent moon pendant.
Stacking Your Rings
More is better with stacking rings. The more rings you have, the more metals and gemstones you have to create various combinations and textures. It’s easy to buy a few bold statement rings and then supplement them with slender diamond or gemstone bands. So, don’t be afraid to splurge on rings for special occasions or milestones. Make your mark with this radiant Bremer Jewelry morganite and diamond fashion ring and then add to your look with this shimmering Bremer Jewelry white gold ring. Top it off with a few of these Bremer Jewelry diamond stackable fashion rings and your ring layering game will be unstoppable.
Boosting Your Bracelets
The key to stacking your bracelets is to be creative and experiment. Like necklaces you can layer a few simple pieces for a more refined and polished look or you can pile on as many bracelets as you desire for a wilder, more bohemian ensemble. One way to stack your bracelets is to pick a colored gemstone piece to add a splash of vibrance. For example, you could start with this glittering Bremer Jewelry sapphire bangle, adding both the lustrous Bremer Jewelry diamond bangle in rose gold and the elegant Bremer Jewelry diamond bangle in white gold. The combination of metals and the pop of the vivid blue sapphire make this mixture both subtle and sophisticated.
Adding to Your Earrings
With earrings, simpler is better. You don’t want to overwhelm your ears with more than one statement pair of earrings at a time. Plus, the further up your ear you go, the more delicate your earrings should become. That said, asymmetry is also in vogue with earrings. That means you should feel free to have a single bold fashion earring in one ear, but not the other. Instead, you can decorate the other ear with a beautiful diamond stud. Try out some asymmetry with these dazzling Bremer Jewelry dangle diamond earrings, coupled with a pair of Bremer Jewelry huggie diamond earrings and Hearts on Fire diamond studs.
