A ring on one of your fingers gives a lot of information about you. That is how someone will recognize if you are married or not. If you want to pass more than one information, you will want to wear multiple rings. Whatever is the message you want to pass, keep in mind that to stack rings in your finger, or wear many across both hands require some thinking. So, let us go find out how to wear multiple rings without looking crazy or stupid.
Wearing rings is centuries old culture, and it still carries a powerful symbol today. Designed from stones, wood, plastic, precious stones and metals, a ring is one of the most unforgettable gifts anyone can ever receive from a friend, loved ones and relatives.
Diamond rings, gold rings, and other rings made from expensive metals are not just pieces of jewelry, they represent a powerful symbolism of love, wealth and riches.
How cool you wear multiple rings to make your statement without looking like a caricature or being too flashy depends significantly on so many factors. Culture, history and your personal style play a lot of roles how and why you’ll wear a particular ring or multiple rings on a particular finger.
More importantly, you present different looks in the public eyes when you wear stacked rings. I normally observe this with some Hollywood movie celebrities.
Their rings seem to coordinate well with their outfit and those multiple rings, just some sort of sparkle to me. Besides, they love wearing and showing off their luxury rings for fashion purposes. Perhaps that’s not it at all.
Is it weird to wear multiple rings?
To wear multiple rings is not weird really, but sometime it is. All depends on the number of rings and the placement style.
If you are wearing an engagement ring, perhaps you can add another ring that says something quite different from marriage.
For example, if you are married and served in the navy or marine corps, you’ll probably get another ring that identifies your military association. The most important thing is that let the multiple rings match your look and dressing style.
You’ll look like a crazy person or a caricature, if you stack too many un-matching, and unfitting rings in one finger or across many fingers in one hand.
But if you understand how much aesthetics a piece of jewelry like a diamond ring gives, you will want to know how to wear multiple rings in a way that people will hold a jaw-dropping gaze when they notice it.
How are you supposed to wear multiple rings?
Here is how to wear multiple rings in one hand or on one finger.
The message is important
If you want to express your status, pay attention to the message each ring sends out. People will not say anything, but they will pick up some subtle cues about you from the ring you wear and on which hand.
First, if you place your precious tone and ornament ring in the most prominent place in your hand, that indicates wealth as well as power.
In some parts of Europe, people have it as custom to wear their wedding bands on the right hand. If you wear your wedding and you live in the United States, people will get it all wrong.
You just have to be very careful about what messages you are sending out by how you wear your rings.
You don’t want a large, expensive gold ring to fit nicely on a skinny finger. Of course, if you wear a big size ring on your small finger, it’ll just look comically kiddy.
You have to maintain the proportion of your hand to that of the ring. Larger rings should go on larger fingers, while lightweight, tiny, delicate rings should go on small hands of people who cherish minimalist fashion.
Men normally have a bit of fat hand and fat fingers than women. Relatively, ladies will wear sleek, thin and compact rings, while men with fuller digits wear larger pieces.
Strive to maintain the proportion and you’ll be impressed by how gorgeous the ring looks and how beautiful your fingers will be.
Get even, on both hands
It is awkward to have multiple rings in your one hand, while the other hand looks empty. You have to balance your rings across all hands. If you’ve got a total of 3 rings to wear on your left hand, make a balance with rings, a watch, or a bracelet on the right hand.
Let both hands have an equal number of rings if possible. If that is not possible, and you have 3 rings in your right hand, and one ring on the left hand, wear a watch on the left hand to visually balance things out.
This goes with any wrist wearable. If you have a wedding band on your right hand, you have to balance it out on the left hand, by wearing a watch or a bracelet.
It takes time to figure this out. You just have to experiment until you make the right combination. The key to maintaining a harmonious look is to void having your bracelet, multiple rings, and a watch on one hand.
Maintain your confidence level
Rings, like other jewel items, are really and naturally attention-grabbing. From the very moment you stand out in public, people will see everything, make their comments and pass their judgement.
You would have already judged yourself if you have no confidence stacking rings together in one hand or one finger.
The secrete to having people believe and accept your multiple rings styling is how you carry yourself on with confidence.
Just be careful to fiddle with your rings or ask folks in the party how you look, because you won’t love the kind of sincere answers they’ll give.
Your self-confidence shows that you know what you are doing, what you are wearing, and what it represents. When you are overconfident about something guys around you thought is weird, they’ll approach you and ask question to clear their doubts and judgement.
Be ready to tell what is the story behind you wearing multiple rings for a stylish look. If it’s a family story that has passed down from generation to generations, you’ll find that you got an excellent conversation starter.
“Why” you wear multiple rings is key to people accepting your style, so you must gain the confidence quickly. You may want to wear your stacked rings around your house, around neighbors, or people you trust until you feel confident.
Let Your metals match
Whether you’re a man or woman, wear your multiple rings, so that they match the other metallic accessories like necklaces, earrings, and belt buckles.
Wearing a variety of gunmetal, gold, rose gold and silver rings at the same time will just make you look crazy.
Gold rings are a good match if you have warmer skin color, and if you wear gold-toned watches, bracelets, necklaces and other jewelries.
Likewise, a silver or diamond ring can make a perfect match if your belt buckle is pure white metal, if you wear a stainless steel or titanium classic watch, or if you have white metal necklaces, earrings, chains, bangles and more.
Whether your ring is glittered with gold, silver, or diamond, make sure all your metals have the same tone and blend for uniformity.
Have one statement piece per hand
Style and arrange your multiple rings in such a way that a single statement piece (jewelry item that gets attention) goes on each hand. Just avoid too many statement rings in one hand, else they’ll look like cluster.
A ring that makes a powerful statement, like a cocktail ring, is characterized by many fun colors, bolder and larger size. It looks completely awkward to have two or three of these kinds of rings stacked in one hand.
After you have placed each statement piece on each hand, you can add other rings that will help compliment the message and the style. It just depends. Some statement rings are better worn alone than pairing them with different metals.
Match your outfit
Whether formal or casual dressing, choose your rings that are appropriate for your dressing colors. If your rings highlight the color scheme of your outfit, people will perceive your jewelry as having some sense of unity.
For example, a ring with a precious stone is best suited for formal occasions, and that should determine what kind of dressing will fit. Let all your rings coordinate your outfit, be it casual or formal.
Space your rings
If five rings have to go in one hand, you should stack them only on one finger. Spread them out to other fingers.
how to wear multiple rings on one finger
If you choose to stack your rings on one finger, they should be similarly styled. The clustered effects of having one ring on the other can only be visually appealing if the rings have the same designed, are smaller, lighter and have slightly different colors.
Some kinds of rings can’t be worn on finger. Very large and bolder rings will simply look heavier on a tiny finger. Again, rings styled with precious stones won’t be attractive if you stack with other metal rings.
How many rings can you wear at once?
Two, three, four and up to five. It is just depends on your own personal style. Your decorated rings and simple metal rings can be worn in the same hand.
You can wear multiple rings at once, it is just that you should carefully select them, identify the appropriate fingers and match them perfectly with your outfit.
You can have two statement piece rings, one on each hand. One most important thing is the rings should create a matching tone for a better look.
How do I know my ring size?
You need to know the right ring for your fingers. A perfectly comfortably ring will just feel loose enough to allow you slide it off your knuckles, but it should also be just tight enough to hold your finger and stay in its place.
If you don’t know your ring size, it is difficult to pick the right one that will fit perfectly.
If you go to a jewelry store, you will have a plastic sheet of a variety of sizes. They are ring sizers, and you just have to slide your finger inside and pick a ring that fits comfortably.
Measuring your finger size
The size of your fingers change throughout the day. Your hands and finger will look larger in a hot afternoon than during the cool hours in the morning. Again, if you eat a lot of salt, you will have chubby fingers.
As regards weather changes, the right time to measure your fingers is in the warm afternoon when your finger is biggest.
All you need is to wrap a flexible tape around and read the most accurate size of your finger. Take measurement several times and average the values to eliminate errors.
What should I do if my ring gets tighter?
Sometimes, your fingers are so fat that there’s no ring to fit and the existing rings have got tighter. That is an exceptional case. There are two possible solutions.
1. Slim your finger
If you are obese or overweight, you’ll have pretty fat fingers. To reduce the size, you have to apply weight loss strategies to get skinner, flexible and beautiful fingers.
2. Get your ring resized
Maybe after your wedding, you have gained weight significantly, and your wedding ring does not fit again. It happens every day. Your wedding ring can get tighter and won’t fit properly, as you gain more weight.
You got to find a local professional jeweler to have it resized. But first, if you bought it from a reputable dealer, return to the store if they can resize it. If they can’t, you got no other choice than a profession jeweler.
Some rings (made from Tungsten) are just too hard to resize, and may alter the aesthetics, if you insist on resizing them.
