Stackable Diamond Wedding Rings

Stackable Wedding Rings

Its no surprise celebrity trends create demand in the jeweler industry and  customers eye them with envy.   When the news of celebrity couples tying the knot is plastered across the internet, everyone wants a look at the ring.   The most popular ring was Kate Middleton’s blue sapphire halo style heirloom diamond engagement ring.  The most recent trend is stackable diamond rings.   Stacking wedding bands have grown in popularity due to much  celebrity love. How can one not love the whole idea of beautifying the two most important rings a lady ever receives in her life; the engagement ring and the wedding band! The stackable concept is when you wear or stack a thin pave diamond ring on either side fo your engagement ring.  Some great ideas are thin pave row of diamonds, or be colorful with blue or black diamonds.  Now ladies prefer wearing their wedding band stacked on top of their engagement ring, which multiplies the beauty!



Another way of increasing the beauty is to choose an eternity band as your wedding band. An eternity band when stacked against any engagement ring would make any lady feel like royalty. I chose a blue and a white eternity band as my husband had proposed to me with a blue sapphire engagement ring. We decided to shop for wedding bands together and as soon as I laid my eyes on the eternity ring that was made of alternating sapphires and diamonds, I knew I wanted it.

Pompeii3 has a huge selection of eternity rings, each one more beautiful than the last. Even though my engagement ring was made from a Sapphire, I had many wedding rings to choose from that would have looked beautiful stacked up against the ring.
