Wedding ring enhancers are simple, thin bands that you often stack with your wedding and or engagement ring. A wedding ring enhancer is a great way to spice up your jewelry collection, and it also makes a fantastic gift to give for a special anniversary

What’s the difference between a stackable ring and a wedding ring enhancer? There really isn’t a difference. Both are bands that are designed to be worn with other rings.

Sometimes, you’ll see a collection of wedding ring enhancers from a retailer. These are the same thing as a stackable band that you can pair with your wedding rings.

How Do You Stack Rings With Engagement Rings?

One of our favorite ways to wear stacked rings is to pair your engagement ring with a curved or shaped band that fits around the edge of your diamond.

This will accentuate the diamond and fit perfectly with your engagement ring to create a cohesive look.

Contoured Bands

Contoured bands are simple bands that curve around the gemstone in your diamond ring. A contoured band should complement the shape of the diamond perfectly. It is best to find a contoured band that will sit flush against the band of your engagement ring.

You can either have a band specially made to match your ring or choose one with a similar shape. A contoured band doesn’t always have to fit like a puzzle piece with your engagement ring. There can be some space in between the bands, and many people prefer the look of this.

Notched Bands

Notched bands are similar to contoured bands, but they have a sharper notch in the band as opposed to the smooth curve of a contoured band.

These are great to pair with rings with square or rectangular shapes, like an emerald ring or princess cut diamond ring.

Stack Anniversary Bands

If you receive or want to buy an anniversary band, keep in mind how it will stack with your other rings. An anniversary band is just a fancy name for a ring you gift to someone on your anniversary.

Many people love showing off their wedding rings with their new anniversary band in a ring stack. While anniversary bands are often not curved, they can still complement your rings beautifully and add extra sparkle with diamonds.

Metals for Stacked Wedding Rings

You can certainly mix metals when you purchase multiple rings. There are no rules for mixing and matching different styles of rings in a ring stack.

We love the look of different metal bands because it can make each one stand out more. Other people like it when things match, and their rings are no different.

If you buy all your rings from the same retailer that only sells high-quality metals, like Clean Origin, you don’t have to worry about getting metals with different hues.
