How to care for stacked rings 

Stackable wedding rings and stackable engagement rings are made to be more than a beautiful jewelry piece on your finger. The bands are made to fit one another, which can lead to dullness, and skin oils are an issue with the stone settings of stacked diamond rings. 

In most cases, stacked engagement rings will be set outside the band instead of just the top edges. This placement means these stones will need to be cleaned more often to keep shining. You can do this by visiting a jeweller or cleaning your stones with jewelry cleaning solutions.

Other substances such as lotions, perfumes, and household cleaners can negatively affect your stacked wedding rings and stones. Your rings will lose their shine and become difficult to polish. 

When wearing stacked wedding rings, you should take them off before using a hand lotion or perfume to keep your rings sparkling. You should also avoid having a bath or taking a shower while wearing your stacked wedding rings. 

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you should consider keeping a secure ring tray nearby to keep your ring away from the sink. A ring tray will give your stacked rings a safe and easy-to-find place to rest while working in the kitchen.
