I’m not married yet, but I plan to have a stacked set. For me it’s the norm. Both my mom and grandmother wear more than one wedding band. My grandmother has four bands, two anniversary bands and one band she got when my mom was born plus her wedding ring. My mom has two. I have just always liked the look.

The stacked look is in at the moment, plus a lot of ladies like symmetry.

I got two curved wedding bands the day I got married to hug my solitaire. Now I have a second wedding set (upgrade) and I have two bands to go with it too, but they are mismatched, and I love the look!

Along with my e-ring, I wear my own wedding band and my mother’s original wedding band from my father.  For me it’s for sentimental reasons.  🙂

The married women in my family have always worn two bands. My mom, my step mom, my grandma, and my aunts all wore two bands. My mom said she chose two to protect her more expensive engagement ring, my aunt does it because she likes the symmetary, and my step mom did it because she wore a band for each part of her family (me and my siblings, her kids, and then her and my dad). 

I’ll wear two more then likely, or a wrap, because it screams ‘married’ to me, since that’s what I’ve always seen.

For me it was a matter of being able to get a band that would wrap around my oval stone, which gives it the stacked look.

I plan on having 2 – one from Fiance and my grandmother’s ring that was her mother’s before her.  I also have my eye on an anniversarry ring that I will wear with them when the time comes.

I have two bands (well, 3 but one is worn on right hand and switched over when I am doing stuff where I do not want to wear my set, like running or lifting weights, etc).

The other two are soldered on either side of my centre stone ring. I just like the look (it looks like I have one chunkier ring even though there are still spaces and really, I do!) and as they are both thin they balance out the thicker centre ring. If I only had one it would be overpowered and I just like balance. It is aesthetically pleasing to me!

I do not think it is a new thing though the concept of stacking has seemingly had a resurgence in the last few years. I know many who married in the last 4-5 decades who have multiple bands. My assistant, who married in 1990 for example, asked her husband to buy the matching “anniversary” band as a wedding gift to her so she has always had two bands.

Some people like stacking rings, switching them around, symmetry, wrapping their erings, etc.

Yeah my mother and friend’s mothers all had anniversary bands that they got in the first 15 years or so of their marriages so I always remember my mom wearing three bands. They were married in the 1970’s. I think its trendy to buy more than one band at your wedding (like Jessica Biel did), but not necessarily to wear more than one if you have them or want to get an anniversary band.

I have a stacked set (2 bands) and didn’t expect to get one. My e-ring is unusual though and we had a lot of trouble finding something that would fit with it without overpowering. My bands ended up coming from an estate jewelry collection… and I supposed I could have gotten just one, but they are different metals and to me having the three different metals looked better than just two that don’t match. Also now I can wear one band, just the two bands, e-ring + one band, switch it so bands are next to one another, etc etc. It’s mix and match!

OTOH, I think I screwed myself out of the “anniversary band” trend….

My first wedding set I had four rings: solitaire and wrap (they were both my engagement rings instead of e-ring and wedding band), then a baguette band for my wedding band. On our first anniversary, I got a matching baguette band for the other side.

This time, I don’t know. I love the look of stacked bands, but I’m pretty happy with just my e-ring and wedding band.

I have my e-ring, w-band and for our first anniversary we got an a-band. I also purchased a cheapy band from Berricle to play with

I started noticing that too, although it’s something I’ve pretty much only seen on WB more than IRL. I don’t really like the look for myself (not because I don’t like more bling – it’s always been a thought in my head that 1 e-ring+ 1 band=married!), but I have seen a ton of beautiful sets on here that have two bands and look awesome!

I never saw the stacking band trend until Weddingbee, too!  So, I bought a plain stacker band to fill-in the gap between my half-eternity band and my low-setting solitaire.

I have 2 for symmerty purposes. I only had one on my wedding day and it bothered me so much I bought a 2nd one 3 days later.
