How to layer necklaces?

One of the most captivating aspects of layering necklaces is a delicate balance of thick and thin chains. This contrast creates a visually pleasing juxtaposition, adding depth and dimension to your overall look. Here are just a few reasons this layering works so well.

Mixing thick & thin: Thin chain necklaces add a dainty and graceful touch, while thick chains provide substance and definition. Together, they create a dynamic element that elevates your ensemble. 

Varying lengths: Varying the necklace lengths is essential to create a harmonious and visually appealing look. By choosing necklaces of different lengths, you can achieve a cascading effect that draws attention to your neckline. 

Touch of texture: Combining various textures, such as delicate initial pendants, chunky paper clip chains, and intricate evil eye charms, adds depth and complexity to your ensemble. The interplay of textures not only enhances the visual interest of your jewelry, but also adds a tactile dimension that can make your layered necklaces even more captivating.

Expert tips for unique necklace layering

To achieve a graceful and striking layered chain look for this season, keep this advice in mind from Isaac Mayer, a third-generation expert jeweller.

Mix & match: The first is to not be afraid to mix metals within reason. Combining gold, silver and rose gold necklace can add a sense of depth and warmth to your ensemble.

Feel free to experiment: The second is to play with different lengths. Layer chains and double necklaces of varying lengths to create a cascading effect. Layering different necklaces such as a choker, a mid-length chain, and a longer pendant necklace can be a winning combination.

Stick to a theme: While experimenting with various chain styles, try to maintain a cohesive theme. Whether you prefer classic or minimalist styles, make sure your chains complement your overall look. 

Strike a balance: The final tip is to keep a nice balance. Keep in mind that there's no need to go overboard. Sometimes a few well-chosen chains can make a stronger statement than piling on too many.
