Layering Necklaces: What You Need to Know

What is layering?

Layering involves wearing multiple necklaces of different lengths, styles, and materials together to create a unique, textured look. The trick is to have the different parts complement each other rather than conflict.

Step-by-step guide to layering

Step 1: Select focus

Start by choosing the jewelry features you want to highlight. This can be a gemstone necklace with a pendant or a necklace with intricate details.

Step 2: Build around it

Choose additional necklaces to complement your focal point without overshadowing it. These can be simpler chains, chokers, or even beaded necklaces, or pearl necklaces. When trying to stack them, you can try to put the lightest necklace closer to your neck according to your face shape, and then wear the necklace further away from your face.

Step 3: Mix and Match

Don’t be afraid to mix metals, styles, and textures. Gold chains look very beautiful when paired with silver pendant necklaces. Mixing and stacking different materials and metals is more visually impactful.

Step 4: Pay attention to the length

When stacking necklaces, it is best to have different necklaces of different lengths. It is best not to overlap one necklace with another. The distance maintained is about 3-5 cm, which is a very comfortable visual distance. In the case of overlapping, usually, the shortest necklace close to the neck can be overlapped. In addition, don’t throw away the pins of some clothing tags, they can be used as necklace extensions. Don’t throw away the ribbon on the gift box. It can be used as an extension chain and it can also prevent allergies.

Step 5: Add a personal touch

Charms, initials, or birthstones can add a personal touch to your layering. Some people mix and match pearl necklaces with silk scarves, which is also a very smart choice. If you like to wear glasses, in fact, a pearl necklace or a necklace with an OT buckle can be mixed and matched with your glasses.

Stacked Necklace Case

Begin by donning a striking centerpiece necklace, and then flank it with two complementary necklaces—one positioned above and the other below your main piece. Accentuate this layered look further by adding delicate beads or stone necklaces. This approach creates a sense of dimension and cohesion, enhancing the overall visual interest and making the ensemble of necklaces appear seamlessly unified.

Common mistakes to avoid

  • Overload: Too many statement pieces can create a cluttered look.
  • Ignore the Neckline: The neckline of your dress plays an important role in the look of your layered necklace. Opt for a V-neck or scoop neck for better opportunities for layering.
  • Neglected Maintenance: Layered necklaces are more likely to tangle, so it's important to store them carefully.
