Traditionally, there are two rings on every newlywed woman's finger: an engagement ring and a wedding band. Nowadays, however, women dress up these important accessories by stacking more rings, and it's easy to see why: The layered effect makes it look chic and festive.
There are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to wearing multiple rings, but if you need a little guidance, here are some ring layering ideas:
1. Invest in curved rings to start your stack.
Other times, two curved rings are worn to elegantly surround and adorn an engagement ring.

4. Mix various shapes and textures for an eye-catching stack.
If you want to keep the layering timeless and minimal, simply stack one or two thin studded rings with a clean wedding band.
