I'm a big fan of stacking but never feel like I can pull off the look. I worry that my diamond gets lost or that my finger is too short. Please provide input.
Exhibit A is how I wear it to keep it simple which I loved but sometimes I want more bling. image_4148.jpg
Exhibit B is my super stack

Exhibit C is my mini stack

I prefer A the most but the other 2 stacks are alright too as your centre stone is large enough to hold its own.

I have to ditto thecat. I think your center stone is large enough to still stand out. I would suggest if you get any stackers in the
future to maybe go with a smaller mm. You might try mixing in some small rose gold or yellow gold if you want to add some more
dimension to it.

Beautiful rings!
I love that idea of some other gold colors, tyty.

Also colored stones in a thin band might be nice, or bands with shapes.
here is one of my stack versions[before the cvb was sized down]. I like both the colors and the "break" in the lower band to give more visual interest. Just an idea.

Nala, I would try putting your ering on the end. So stack your bands on the inside, and then add the ering to the end (the reverse of C). That might look nice. I think the issue with B is that the rings themselves don't stack very well. Lots of gaps, they don't 'fit' together. That makes the stack look larger than it is, which is probably what you're feeling as overwhelming your ering.

I prefer the first. The rest look too busy and the e-ring gets lost.

Oh my goodness Jimmianne your stack is gorgeous! :love: :love:
Bonfire, thank you!
I hope others will post examples of their stacks.[& It's such fun to switch bands around often. Keeps things interesting].

I don't like the large stone on the bottom.

I like thin bands stacked in sets of three. How about adding a twist or bubble band in the middle of stack A?

BTW the band in stack A is a stunner!

So I actually like the gap but maybe that does overwhelm the diamond. I don't care for the e ring at the top BC I feel my finger is too short and that the diamond just looks awkward too close to the knuckle.

Thanks! I wore it out to dinner this way and my friend commented how dazzling my diamond looked! He doesnt usually notice my ring, so i think limiting the stacking made it stand out. Guess that look might be my go-to unless I'm in a playful mood.

I have been playing with this look BC I see it a lot on TV and like how it looks on others from a distance. Just not sold on how it looks on me.

Thanks! What color is your gorgeous stone? I hesitate to stack with colors BC my stone is a bit tinted and I always feel the colors bring out the tint more
