Start with a Statement Piece

Every great necklace layering ensemble begins with a statement piece – a bold, eye-catching necklace that serves as the focal point of your look. This could be a personalized piece like our New Initials, a Chunky Chain, or a Pendant adorned with intricate gemstones. Let this statement piece set the tone for your entire ensemble, serving as the anchor around which you’ll build your layers.

Mix and Match Lengths

When it comes to layering necklaces, one of the key principles to keep in mind is to mix and match lengths for visual interest. By layering necklaces of different lengths, you create depth and dimension, allowing each piece to shine.

Play with Texture and Thickness

The best way to layer necklaces also comes down to versatility. In addition to varying lengths, consider mixing different textures and thickness to add visual intrigue. 

Pair chunky chains like this with more delicate pendants like this, or layer necklaces of different metals for a modern, eclectic vibe. Don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun with your combinations – after all, the beauty of necklace layering lies in its versatility and endless possibilities.

How Many Necklaces Should I Layer?

This ultimately comes down to personal taste, but the easy go-to options are two or three necklaces. With any layered look, we recommend embracing the rule of odd numbers outside of two. This creates balance and symmetry, ensuring that your layered look feels cohesive and well-proportioned.

Finally, consider the neckline of your outfit

Different necklines – whether it’s a classic crew neck or chic turtleneck – will lend themselves to different necklace layering styles. Similarly, take into account the color palette and style of your outfit, ensuring that your layered necklaces complement rather than compete with your overall look.
