How to Stack Fine Jewelry - Expert Tips From JustDesi Stylists

Layering jewelry can add so much to your look, but it can sometimes be challenging to come up with jewelry combinations you love. If you find yourself struggling to create jewelry stacks that feel right to you, our expert stylists are here to give you all the tips you need to feel stylish and inspired again. Below, we’re sharing insider tips on how to create cohesive jewelry looks, including a simple hack for choosing three pieces of jewelry that will always look good together. Then, we’re sharing examples of how to use this styling hack to create fashionable fine jewelry stacks, including ring stacks, bracelet stacks, layered necklace looks, and earring stacks. 


A Simple Trick to Stacking Fine Jewelry to Perfection


There are many tried-and-true stylist tips you can use to make your jewelry looks more cohesive. For example, stylists often recommend that you wear jewelry in the same precious metal, use a maximum of one accent color, wear jewelry that features similar shapes, wear an odd number of jewelry pieces, and avoid wearing jewelry that’s all the same size. These tips promote visual cohesion and help you naturally create balance. But in addition to these standard tips, the expert stylists at JustDesi have a styling hack that can help you create cohesive, balanced, and visually intricate looks every time. 


According to our stylists, the easiest way to create a stunning jewelry stack is to choose one eye-catching piece, one textured piece, and one simple piece. By pairing these three types of jewelry together, you can create a visually interesting, stylish stack that will naturally look balanced and cohesive. Why do these types of jewelry pair so well together? Learn more below, then scroll on to see examples of our styling technique in action. 


Eye-Catching


An eye-catching piece of jewelry provides a main focal point for your jewelry stack. This helps the eye know where to look, creating balance and cohesion. Eye-catching jewelry comes in many forms. Eye-catching jewelry often has a main focal point. However, it can also have multiple focal points or be visually striking due to high shine or bold size. Examples of eye-catching fine jewelry include pendant necklaces, engagement rings, fashion rings with large center stones or centerpieces, colorful gemstone jewelry, bold geometric jewelry, signet rings, and highly brilliant jewelry that provides plenty of bling. 


Textured


Textured jewelry adds visual interest to your fine jewelry stack without pulling too much attention from your main focal point. Jewelry with chunky chain links is one of our favorite ways to add texture to a fine jewelry stack. Other excellent textured pieces include jewelry that features milgrain, beading, engraving, twisting, or intricate pavé diamond accents. 


Simple


A simple, streamlined piece of jewelry will round out your fine jewelry stack, while also helping you avoid a cluttered or heavy look. Some great options for your simple piece include plain band-style rings, sleek eternity bands, classic bangles, minimalist chokers, and delicate station necklaces. 


Note that simple doesn’t have to mean plain or boring. According to the JustDesi stylists, “simple” is relative to the other pieces you’re styling, as well as your individual style. A simple piece can still be stunning, but it should be less so compared to your other pieces. You want your simple piece to add detail while also blending in seamlessly with the rest of your fine jewelry stack.

Final Thoughts 


Using three pieces–one eye-catching, one textured, and one simple–is an excellent starting place for your jewelry stacks, but remember it’s more of a guide than a rule. Use this as a starting point, then experiment with layering different numbers, styles, and sizes of jewelry.
