The amount of rings that you stack is up to you; some people choose to wear five rings on one finger! For a huge fashion statement, make sure every ring you stack contains diamonds.

• Twisted Bands For a more affordable alternative to stacked rings, consider a ring with a twisted band or setting. The twisted nature of ring gives the impression that several rings have been stacked together when it is actually only one. This is also much more comfortable than wearing a stack of rings! Twisted settings enhance the diamond by drawing the eye towards it, and they look great with any outfit. For a bold and powerful statement, match the diamond in your twisted ring with other gemstones.
