How To Layer Necklaces: Real Tips From Jewelry Pros

You're not the same person you were last year, so why would your style remain the same? As you grow in your personal life, you may wish to reflect your growth by incorporating bolder, more expressive elements into your jewelry. Layering necklaces is one way to create visual interest in your style and create diversity in your collection. 

If you want to experiment with this style, you might benefit from a few tips from jewelry professionals. Let's look at six tips that can help you as you start trying layered necklaces to refresh your style.

1. Don't Be Shy 

While you're standing in front of your mirror trying out different jewelry combinations, you may have the instinct to play it safe. Layering necklaces might feel like a style that's out of your comfort zone, but it's worth trying. 

Take it slow if you need to. You can experiment by choosing two necklaces that might complement each other. Once you have two staple pieces that look good together, search for a third if you dare. 

2. Choose Alternating Lengths 

You might find that a majority of your necklaces are of a similar length. Trying to layer these would be difficult. You might discover that multiple chains of the same length tangle quickly. It's a better idea to opt for chains of varying sizes. Each change in size will contribute to a more coordinated set of chains that makes the entire group look stunning.

3. Select Multiple Types of Necklaces 

As you add necklaces to your collection, it's a great idea to add not only varying lengths but varying types of necklaces as well. If you've already got a short minimalistic piece, try adding a longer pendant and a personalized mid-sized necklace. 

If you're well-prepared with longer pendants, consider adding a more delicate silhouette near your collarbone. These multiple layers will captivate all those who see it and attract even more complements. 

4. Incorporate Diamonds 

Make your pieces classic. You can create an even more captivating ensemble by adding diamonds as an element in your necklace combinations. These will add texture to the mix and enhance the entire group with their presence. When you select fine diamond jewelry, you invest in timeless accessories that will hold their value for years. 

5. Coordinate With Matching Metals 

Should you mix metals or coordinate metals that match? You might be interested in mixing metals, but if you're recently beginning to experiment with layering necklaces, it may be best to refrain. Opt for chains of the same color metal to create a look that's cohesive and charming. Metals of the same color look brilliant together; it's a classic design philosophy that won't let you down. 

6. Add a Personalized Piece 

Do you want to know one way you can maximize your individuality in your necklace styling? By far, the best option you have is to choose a personalized piece. A customizable necklace allows you to select the metal color you adore most. You can make your piece one-of-a-kind by adding a word that's meaningful to your life.
