I like a big stack, but it depends on the finger to me.  They need to be sized to fit right, and you need longer fingers.  Squishing on more than your fonger can handle, and not sizing right so it looks like an expolding sausage is not a good look for anyone.

chelseaadarlingg:  thank you! That’s my beloved wedding band 😍 I got it from the etsy seller sweetolivejewelry. She has so many sweet bands to choose from! And thank you…I love y engagement ring…I get so many compliments on it, but I’m also paranoid because people constantly tell me (online mostly) aquamarine is too soft for daily wear. So I’m worried I’ll damage it, especially since its such a large stone. It is lovely though (even more so in person, in different lights), and I wouldn’t trade it for anything 😊

Honestly, instead of doing two separate bands with birthstones, I’d get a custom one with both together alternating! I’ve thought about doing that for my kids (aquamarine is my husband’s birthstone)…emerald and peridot.

Whatever you do…make sure to size up the more bands you intend to stack! My ering is a 3.5, and my bands are all 4s and it is a bit difficult to remove them without cold water.

chelseaadarlingg:  My aqua is a solitaire I plan on adding birthstone eternity bands if we have more children! My middle finger is a little longer than my ring finger, so I can stack more rings on it.

my grandmother wears:

her engagement ring

her wedding ring

my grandfather’s first wedding ring (it broke and they had it resized and fixed for her)

her 25th anniversary ring

her 50th anniversary ring

The woman looks like a pimp and I love it. She has each ring picked out to give to one of her 5 granddaughters to wear as our “something old” and then keep to remember her by when she’s gone. 

Stack away!

I don’t think you should. Even if it might all fit, it might not be comfortable. Think about those hot humid sweaty days.

chelseaadarlingg:  not long at all…just a few months. But I’m very choosy about when/where I wear it now.

I <3 your grandma, too.




I’ve topped out at five on one finger, myself. I usually wear 3-4 on both hands each day. Some ladies wear life event charms on bracelets or necklaces. I stack my markers. Wear whatever your heart desires and your fingers will handle. That’s my vote.

I don’t think it’s to much! I wear a stack with rings ranging from 1mm to 3mm, and will continue adding and changing rings out depending on my mood it’s fun! I have a total of six here and could easily wear another two rings of 2mm each without feeling overwhelmed

 I personally don’t think all 5 would look good. I like the promise+engagement+wedding a lot. I also like the other’s ideas of putting the promise ring with the birthstone on the other hand (this also leaves “room” to stack another band on your left hand if babies come along).

Another thing is to consider is that your rings will need to be sized differently the thicker they are.  The wider the ring, the larger the size you’ll need. When you’re stacking rings, you’re creating the same problem of the tissue on your finger needing a place to go, just like one single wide ring would. The wider (so a 5 stacked ring set) the more this issue is going to take place.

I say this just because it’s YOU who are going to wear it so if YOU think it’s beautiful, rock it. But if you’re going to rock it, consider the sizing. 🙂
