While we’d never turn down a slice of layer cake, our favorite way to layer, no surprise, is stackable rings. In a simple pair or a tower of four, stacking rings shows off your style and personality. And with Bario Neal’s new Vibrant Collection, there are even more ways to mix and match gemstones and metals in a ring stack for any finger (all fingers?). To create these sapphire rings, we took already loved designs of many of our ethical rings and added new gemstones: blue sapphire, fuchsia sapphire, apricot sapphire, and yellow sapphire. (We had to work in white diamonds too.) Here, nine ideas for creatively piling them up.
Stackable Rings Idea #1
The Bend Fuchsia Sapphire Ring and a Reticulated Two Band (on index finger) make a strong duo. With just one special gemstone among them, there’s enough flair to make this a perfectly stackable wedding set. Organic and natural, this couple is like a favorite TV twosome who we never want to break up.
Stackable Rings Idea #2
Bring primary color vibes to your stackable rings with Aira Mini Blue Sapphire Ring and Reticulated One Yellow Sapphire Band (on ring finger). These delicate thin stacking rings prove that doubling up doesn’t have to mean a heavy look. Total alignment isn’t necessary in a ring stack. We love the openings created by pairing these shapely sapphire rings.
Stackable Rings Idea #3
The Vibrant Collection means more looks for this classic Bario Neal jewelry coupling: the Open Lash Ring and Ray Fringe Ring. Fuchsia is sometimes referred to as “magic pink,” and we definitely see something enchanting about layering these vivid fuchsia sapphire rings.
Stackable Rings Idea #4 and Stackable Rings Idea #5
Triple your sophistication with stackable bands in a single color like this set of Channel Narrow Blue Sapphire Band, Eternity Narrow Blue Sapphire Band, and Half Eternity Blue Sapphire Band. Although fully tracing melee stones (the smaller gemstones used in eternity bands) is atypical in the jewelry industry, Bario Neal works with trusted suppliers on sourcing to make sure we’re creating ethical rings for you. If a modern spin on “something blue” doesn’t grab you, this Vibrant Collection mix comes in fuchsia sapphire too.
Stackable Rings Idea #6
Ring stacks mean a chance to have fun with shapes and colors. Start with a perfect mixed pair like our Open Lash Fuchsia Sapphire Ring and Ray Fringe Blue Sapphire Ring, and then add a timeless jewelry design like the Half Eternity Wide Yellow Sapphire Band. (P.S. We didn’t build this stack with the pansexual pride flag specifically in mind, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t shout out that noteworthy awareness-raising pink-blue-yellow combo!

Stackable Rings Idea #7
Stacking jewelry can become a bit of an obsession, but if Rihanna is wrong then we don’t want to be right. So we’ll go higher by stacking rings in this Vibrant Collection foursome: Fishtail Fuchsia Sapphire Ring, Reticulated One Fuchsia Sapphire Band, Ray Fringe Fuchsia Sapphire Ring, and Dais Narrow Fuchsia Sapphire Band.
Stackable Rings Idea #8 and Stackable Rings Idea #9
Part of the fun of stackable rings is pulling apart and putting together different rings to see what sparks you to smile or what goes with a different outfit or occasion. Take the above image of the towering stackable rings, for instance. Depending on the day or your mood, deconstruct higher ring stacks into tamer twosomes, like our Fishtail Fuchsia Sapphire Ring and Reticulated One Fuchsia Sapphire Band (first and second ring), or the Ray Fringe Fuchsia Sapphire Ring and Dais Narrow Fuchsia Sapphire Band (third and fourth ring). As pairs, these sapphire rings highlight how a contrast of metals works well in stacks, whether that’s putting a braided band with one that’s smoothly undulating or mixing up metal colors.
There’s something irresistibly individual about stacking rings. As our new Vibrant Collection came to life, we couldn’t resist sharing the inspiration for how to cleverly build with these sapphire rings. Shop all Bario Neal’s ethical rings today to create your own perfect stack.
