Did you know that the luxury jewelry industry is worth over $21 billion?
It isn't hard to understand why. If you've got a bit of disposable income, there's no reason you shouldn't start wearing jewelry to match your lifestyle. Wearing rings, in particular, is a great way to show off your style.
But what about styling rings when you want to wear more than one at a time? There's a way to do it, and we're going to show you right here.
Keep reading to learn how to wear multiple rings.
Wear Two or Three Rings
Who says styling rings have to happen one finger at a time? Shake things up by wearing a few types of rings on the same finger.
Styling rings on the same finger looks best when they're made of the same metal. If you have a quirky style, though, feel free to mix and match metals like gold and silver.
The key to mixing metals is to make sure they balance each other out. It should make sense in the grand scheme of your outfit, including other jewelry.
If you really want to wear that rose gold ring with the rest of your gold jewelry, for example, throw on some rose gold earrings to tie the outfit together. It'll make more sense and will look more intentional.
Other than figuring out which color rings you want to style together, figure out the type of rings you want to wear. In other words, pair some chunky rings with delicate rings. Or, pair smooth rings with rings that have curves or textures.
Lastly, consider buying a few midi rings. These types of rings are worn above the higher joint of your finger.
Before you do that, you need to figure out your ring size. Your midi ring should be at least three sizes smaller than your regular ring size.
You may not want to wear multiple rings on your pinky finger, though. We suggest this because you won't have as much freedom to move, and your fingers might look too stubby.
Wear Multiple Rings on One Hand
Not a fan of wearing jewelry on the same finger? There are ways for styling rings that match your fashion sense.
Another way is wearing rings across all five fingers. Now that you've already played around with a few cute ring combinations, you'll need to select which fingers will wear the rings.
Here are a few finger and ring combinations that we recommend:
- Pointer and ring finger
- Thumb, pointer, and ring finger
- Thumb and middle finger
- Thumb and ring finger
- Thumb, pointer finger, and middle finger
- Middle finger and pinky
- Thumb, pointer finger, and pinky
Notice that we don't include any combination of rings worn on adjacent fingers.
While you are certainly free to do so, the rings will likely chafe together and wear down over time. You may also find their proximity distracting as you go about your daily activities.
This is a bigger issue for thicker or chunkier rings. You may feel comfortable wearing rings next to each other if they are thin and dainty enough.
As for colors, we still recommend matching metals. Again, you can get a little wild or creative with it, but you don't want rings to subtract from your whole outfit.
Wear Multiple Rings on Both Hands
Now that you know how to wear multiple rings on one hand, let's talk about wearing rings on both hands. Generally speaking, the same rules apply.
However, our best tip is to not overdo it. Sometimes, less is more. Wearing six or ten rings across both hands may be fun, but it may undo what you're trying to accomplish with your whole look.
It may be okay for a casual, boho look, but if your aim is class and elegance, keep it simple. "Less is more" when it comes to wearing jewelry that emulates effortless beauty.
This is why it's also important to avoid cheap jewelry. A lot of cheap rings contain copper, which is the material that turns your fingers green.
This happens because the copper is coming into contact with either your skin, or traces of products on your skin. These may be soap, lotion, and other cosmetic products.
While there are methods of preventing this reaction, it's easier to shop for types of rings that contain higher quality materials. These include pure gold, pure silver, stainless steel, and platinum.
Unlike rings made of copper, they won't get discolored or wear out as easily.
We've given you a few ideas on how to wear multiple rings, but there's more to it than simply layering the best rings from your collection. It goes even deeper than your style and personal preference.
Styling rings should tell a story about who you are. For example, you probably won't wear a ring on the fourth finger of your left hand if you're not married (although, you can if you want!).
Think too of birthstones. There's no rulebook that says you can only wear the birthstone from your birth month, but doing so will add extra meaning. There are also certain characteristics that correlate to each birthstone.
If you aren't sure about your birthstone or the qualities it represents, it's definitely worth looking into. It will also be a conversation starter for anyone who notices your ring!
How to Wear Multiple Rings
It's never too late to up your fashion game by investing in the best rings for your style. It's easy to get bored by wearing rings that you've had for a long time, or that don't match your aesthetic anymore.
Luckily, styling is simple when you have several types of rings to choose from. We hope this guide has been helpful in teaching you how to wear multiple rings at once.
