4 Stackable Ring Trends for Any Customer

Blog Engagement Ring Header

For creativity and individuality, stacking allows the bride to pair a classic engagement ring with additional pieces that may be less traditional. There really are no limits when it comes to adding to your stack. Whether the intent is to accentuate boldly or add a twist to your current bridal set, stacking gives you those options and many more.

Here are a few stacking options that follow the latest industry trends.

Geometric Shapes

We’ve seen the geometric trend all over social media in the last year! Heavy geometric forms can be combined with more delicate parts to form a really unique, powerful statement piece for your customer.

Asymmetry and Curves/Angles

Some may feel a little off balance by the asymmetry trend — pun not intended! But we have seen this trend evolve and take over. People are drawn to this unique look because it helps each person showcase their individuality with unexpected designs. Offer curved/angled styles to let your customers add a touch of edge.

Mix it Up

Stackable ring looks have been on trend for a while, and they show no sign of going away. Offer eternity and anniversary bands to create a unique stack for any customer, brides included. Help them layer their look and create a perfect stack by using a mix of metal colors, stone sizes, and shapes.

Self-Purchaser Stacks

Let your customers know that enhancing their engagement ring does not have to be done on the day of their wedding.

These rings are perfect for any gift-giving or congratulatory self-purchasing moments that are cause for celebration. Adding a new ring to a stack for an anniversary, a birthday, or the birth of a child also allows the flexibility to add color or depth to a current bridal stack.

Jewelry Under $500 Valentines Day Blog Header

Imagine this scenario: a couple enters your store days before Valentine’s Day. As she wanders about your sales floor, her “ouus” and “ahhs” make the sweetest audible expressions. “OMG look at this beautiful ring. I love how the gold glimmers and look how sparkly this stone is!” She calls him over and asks, “What do you think Honey?” Poor guy. He’d never admit it, but all the rings look the same in his eyes.

Trend Alert: Bezel Set Jewelry

Bezel Set Jewelry Blog Header

Bezel set jewelry has been around for a while. It’s one of the oldest techniques for attaching stones to jewelry and the process hasn’t changed much over time. The design is simple: metal is soldered over the gemstone to secure it in place. In fact, that’s what makes bezel set jewelry so attractive today. With precious metal encircling the stone, this setting method affords more center stone security. Diamonds are better protected from daily dings when compared to prong-set heads. Bezel set jewelry is also a good idea for softer stones that are more susceptible to chips and scratches.

Since bezel heads have metal wrapped around the circumference of the stone, this setting type can make stones appear slightly larger, too. Not to mention they look fabulous! This unique design is springing up everywhere and is all the rage. If your bride-to-be is searching for a different style, suggest this setting! It’s simple, timeless, and offers maximum protection for her center stone.

See how Stuller has developed a way to create a secure bezel setting, utilizing the latest fusion technology to assemble any type of jewelry in a snap.

 

Here’s our new and best-selling bezel set jewelry suggestions.

And let’s face it, most of us weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouths, making sterling silver jewelry the perfect option! This holds especially true for younger customers who lack the money or inclination to splurge on gold. Millennials find sterling silver jewelry can be an ideal way to maintain their distinctive aesthetic at a reasonable price-point.

Let’s not forget sterling silver jewelry has a pronounced tendency to tarnish. This may turn the jewelry black and may be rubbed off on the skin or clothing. When this occurs, polish silver jewelry frequently to keep pieces in mint condition.

 

Choose sterling silver for your silver bullet solution to any and all jewelry-related qualms. Then, upgrade to white gold down the road when you see fit!
