It was only a short time ago that stacking rings were the it thing designers were making and customers were buying. Shoppers could flex their creative muscles by adding a variety of styles to their stacks, sometimes piled well past the knuckle on their fingers. It was this trend that enforced stacking rings as very collectible, everlasting pieces and ones that could help tell a story or create a personalized look for those buying them.
Since, the notion of curating styles has traveled from the finger to the neck (neck parties have also been notable), the neck to the wrist (à la charm bracelets or stacking bangles), the wrist to the ear (where stud earrings continue to thrive). None of these categories have gone out of style, mind you, though they do seem to trade consumer focus from time to time.
Building ring stacks may not be at the forefront of every customer’s mind at the moment, but the stacking ring is without a doubt one of the most timeless articles of jewelry out there. Its versatility—from a wedding band to a single fashion ring, or as a part of a stack short or tall—is a guarantee, no matter how current trends dictate jewelry be worn.
Colored gemstones are special, but when we’re talking timeless versatility, what understands the assignment better than a diamond? From the subtle sparkle of a pavé band to more significant carat weight, you won’t find many customers tiring of wearing diamonds on the daily.
The diamond bands pictured here are as versatile and enduring as a simple sparkling band—but far more interesting. Their designs are distinctive and memorable, standing out in a stack (or solo) and happily blending by offering complementary glitter and gold.
Come what may, the diamond band is a jewel box necessity that warrants wearing on repeat and playing with combinations of different styles. With a wide range of prices and styles, there really is something for everyone.
