Stacking rings aren’t so much a trend as they are a staple at this point, but that doesn’t mean demand for them doesn’t ebb and flow. From what I have come to understand, we’re definitely at peak stacking ring, and there are a plethora of good options to prove it.

I’ve been thinking a lot about JCK Las Vegas recently—well, I’ve been working on writing about the upcoming show a lot lately, so you know it’s getting closer. One of my first stops at the show is always to see Parade Design in LUXURY; I love spending time with the people who work there just as much as I love trying on nearly every piece of jewelry I see. I always come away with a few images of rings, either stacked high, the length of a single finger, or completely loaded across my hand. Last year was one of my favorite visits, because I loved the new assortment of pretty rings featuring rose-cut diamonds (pictured above in the bottom right corner). They are perfect as petite engagement rings or as part of a stack, and I’ve been dreaming about adding one of these to my own personal collection for nearly a year now (and that dream likely won’t let up until I just go ahead and get one already).

I won’t be attending JCK Las Vegas this year, so I’ll have to sneak a peek at the new goodies from the comfort of my couch, but I expect there to be a new wave of luscious rings worthy of a few Instagram posts. Team JCK: This is your mission, should you choose to accept it!.

I know you’re busy making preparations to jet off to Vegas while you’re running a retail store at the same time, but have you checked in on your wedding and stacking ring selection? For brides on a budget, and particularly those inclined to something slightly more “alternative,” these options are some of the best (all of these rings are a part of Parade’s Lumiere bridal collection, so are technically intended as such). For those not looking to get married, these options are still some of the best. I plan to wear mine (someday, when I acquire it) on the right hand—for some reason I’m inclined to pick the index finger. I plan to wear my second one (because that’s happening) on another finger. And so on, until every delicious rose-cut option is mine. Because your customers might get the same idea, why not just get a jump on things and stock up now?
