The return of the small but perfectly formed signet ring- that's the one worn on the pinkie finger- offers an elegant twist on ring stacking but can even look cute worn alone, while the link-up ring injects an exotic, Bollywood flavour to hand jewellery. Link-ups are multiple ring fusions attached by fine chains- they are different from the hand chain in that they link up horizontally over the width of the fingers or hand.
Mixing and matching all these variants of rings creates the perfect, understated, and effortless statement. Whether you choose to really flaunt your best cocktail rings by spreading them out over your hands ala MK Olsen, play jenga with teeny tiny rings or compliment an ethnic knuckleduster with a hand chain (Gillian Zinser style), stacking is the venturesome yet eclectic way to make the most of your trinket box.
