Tuesday Trend Day: stacking rings and knuckle rings

I have been interested in the ring stacking trend for some time now but I finally decided to write a post covering the topic. I’ve seen this trend on celebrities and in fashion magazines. Here is how it works: there are rings you wear above your knuckle, typically a single band but there are some fun styles available. If you are buying a single band or just a knuckle ring the average size in between 3 and 3.5. You can purchase a set of rings and find a variety of ways to stack them based on how they fit you.

When searching for this trend I found a lot knuckle rings for sale on Etsy. Here is an example:
