Welcome to The Everyday Edit, a series in which BAZAAR editors and fashion insiders share the items—bags, jeans, earrings, and more—that are so good, they’re in daily rotation.
“One of the reasons I love accessorizing with rings is that I can see and enjoy them without a mirror—unlike necklaces and earrings,” Auvere founder and designer Gina Love tells BAZAAR.com. To see is to love: Everything from churning out work emails to scrolling through your TikTok FYP is that much brighter with a ring (or three) on your fingers.
Your options for can’t-look-away rings are endless, whether you vibe with dainty gold bands or diamond-studded signets. To find ring styles you’ll want to slide on day after day, we asked the designers behind The Last Line, Stone & Strand, Éliou, and more to share their favorite everyday rings. Ahead, find 14 pieces you’ll always see shining in jewelry experts’ ring stacks—and that you’ll want to add to your own.

Now or Never Chunky Ring
“I’ve always loved the look of chunky rings and I wanted to create something that’s fun and colorful yet still sleek enough to be an everyday piece. This chunky ring was inspired by my favorite elements from our past collections. I really wanted to keep our signature use of romantic motifs in the design, so for the ring we did a carousel setting of the colorful heart and tear shaped gems all around the thick band for that extra sparkle. I love wearing it alone or in a stack of two, possibly in silver and gold if I’m in the mood for mixed metals, or wear it with my two other new favorites, the Love in Bloom Bloom ring and Mini Baby Super Bloom ring for the ultimate multi-ring look!” — Jessica Tse, founder of Notte Jewelry
Amaya Goldtone Domed Ring
“My jewelry shifts as quickly and as often as my mood does. Some days I wake up feeling simple, and other times it’s a ‘more the merrier’ kind of day. Our Amaya ring was designed to play in between the lines of statement and simplicity so that it can navigate between different mindsets. It’s chunky and perfect and I wear it everyday stacked with either fine jewelry or playful pieces.” —Cristina Mantilla, co-founder of Éliou
Fine Diamond Maritime Ring
“I love accessorizing with something sparkly in the winter—it’s an instant mood-brightener during the darker months of the year. Our diamond maritime ring is my daily go-to. It’s a great stacking piece that takes up a good chunk of real estate on the hand without overwhelming other bands. I like it paired with a couple of other simple gold and diamond rings of different widths, a diamond pinky signet ring, and topped off with my glittery silver Miu Miu ankle boots.” — Nadine Kahane, founder at Stone & Strand
Diamond With a Twist Cocktail Ring
“Anything that makes my life easier is a yes for me. I designed a collection of rings and quite a few have become my go-to pieces for everyday. If I had to choose one, I’d say the Cocktail Ring, which features two diamond bands interlocked with a sterling silver and a yellow gold band. It gives the appearance of multiple pieces but it’s just one, truly perfect ring. I like to mix metals and this piece takes the guesswork out of it for me, which is a dream when I’m rushing out the door with three kids.” — Shelley Sanders, founder of The Last Line
Ling Bling Rings
“I’ve always loved exploring and mixing materials and the idea of wearable statement jewelry. This gold-plated sterling silver piece is exactly that—a more refined interpretation of the Y2K aesthetics and resin baubles we’re known for. While the captivating blue heart crystal gives a romantic and dreamy feel, the baby pink enamel band adds a layer of playfulness to the whole design versus just a simple gold or silver band.
It’s so whimsical, easy and fun on its own. This piece has grasped the attention at the dinner table and become a conversation starter! It can, however, also be worn with your other everyday ring stacks like a diamond eternity band or a dainty gold band. I personally love to layer it. I wear my diamond wedding band with chunky old-mine stones underneath the Ling Bling, and I add either a Dessert ring or a few Adjustable Drip Bands on top, on the days when I feel like being a little more colorful.” — Clare Ngai, founder of BONBONWHIMS
Slice Ring Polished
“Since I work a lot with my hands, I enjoy decorating my fingers with ring stacks. I own quite a few rings, many of which I designed for Auvere. One of my all time favorite Auvere rings is the Slice Ring Polished in solid 22 karat gold. I designed the Slice Ring in 2018 and it has become one popular ring for us. One of our clients even proposed to his fiancé with a trio of these rings.
One of the things I love about the Slice Ring is its simplicity. The story of this ring is in its minimalist shape, which rises gradually to a small apex. The clean architecture of the ring emphasizes the richness of the 22-karat gold and makes it easy to wear with anything. As good as the Slice Ring looks worn as a single, I wear this ring stacked on one finger in a group of three. When worn this way, each ring turns in different directions, which results in a cool shape.
Another thing that makes this ring a great choice is its versatility. Slice rings look stunning together, but they can be stacked with many other rings, including our Xanthe 24-karat Ring, Callen Ring and Octavia Stack Rings. I wear my trio of Slice Rings with pretty much any look but I prefer wearing them with graphic, monotone colors—like black, white, or red.” — Gina Love, founder of Auvere
“Perseverance” Fish Ring
“I wear two of my 18K Gold fish perseverance rings layered every day. I love how they look together. Their architectural design was inspired by some of my favorite Art Deco French pottery. Fish swim forward so I had perseverance engraved inside. It’s all about moving forward and not looking back! They give me double the courage and confidence.” — Monica Rich Kosann, founder of Monica Rich Kosann Jewelry
Prizm Ring Set
“We designed this ring set because we wanted to incorporate a stackable ring into our Prizm collection. (All of our rings are usually stand-out pieces that are pretty big and bold on their own.) When the three rings are separated, they each have their own identity, but when you stack them all together, they create a bold look that is very aligned with all of our other rings. I really love the tri-color choice because I love the different outcomes you get when mixing the metals. I usually wear the three rings in the set stacked together or sometimes I may wear just one or two and stack it with my Nika+Cito eternity diamond ring.” — Kristin Essel, co-founder of Third Crown
Pavé Open Claw Ring
“This ring is a personal favorite of mine because it’s both versatile with its thin and dainty design, but at the same time has substance with the CZs. It’s slightly adjustable, so it can be placed virtually on any of the fingers, making it stackable with any other ring it’s layered with.” — Adina Kamkhatchi, founder of Adina’s Jewels
Signature Bezel Ring
“One of my favorite pieces is the VRAI Signature Bezel Ring with an emerald cut and set in rose gold. It is modern, yet has a classic sensibility and details. The minimal gold rim frames the elongated stone to create a flattering look on any finger. Designed to sit low on the finger, it can be worn on its own comfortably for every day wear or stacked for a more glamorous look for an evening out or special occasion. For an elevated look, I stack it with a yellow gold tetrad or baguette infinity band as mixing metals makes the look more playful and unique.” – Mona Akhavi, VRAI chief executive officer
Hot Chili Ring
“Most of my design inspiration comes from studying in Tokyo and living in New York City. This ring is centered with a little dangling red chili enamel charm. It adds a little fun to the lustrous freshwater pearls that spiral elegantly around your finger. This is a mix of minimalist style from New York and a little Kawaii twist from Tokyo. I love to stack it with our Lone Ring and style it with some of our many freshwater pearls beaded necklaces. To complete the look I add our matching Chili Necklace.” — Joey Wong, founder of Joey Baby
Graduated Diamond Ring
“I designed the Jennifer Meyer graduated rings in hopes of creating something fresh that also felt classic and timeless. I wear the diamond version every day, but love to add in different colors depending on my mood or outfit. They are great solo or stacked with all of my other favorites.” — Jennifer Meyer, founder and designer of Jennifer Meyer Jewelry
The Ankh Diamond Eternity Ring
“I designed [this ring] because I wanted an everyday piece that could be worn on its own but could also be stacked for special occasions. The ring was inspired by the popular X and O diamond rings. I liked how delicate and simple they were. After many design iterations my jewelers and I finally created the version we have now. It was important to get the dimensions, scale, and band thickness just right. The Ankh represents life, amongst other things. We make the ring ethically with lab-grown diamonds and fair trade African gold.
I like to wear [it] on my pointer finger with one of my simple stacking bands on the same hand. To spruce the look up for special occasions I’ll stack the simple band with our classic diamond eternity ring.” — Ashley Alexis McFarlane, founder of Omi Woods
The Clam & Pearl Ring
“Taking inspiration from ancient fairy tales, I wanted to create a dream-like ring featuring a floating clam in a diamond night sky. My favorite feature of the ring is the miniature natural seed pearl nestled in the center of the hand painted enamel clam. I love to stack this ring up with other golden treasures, including the matching necklace. ” — Cece Fein Hughes, founder and designer of Cece Jewellery
