To create dimension, select necklaces of different lengths and textures. Mix delicate chains with chunkier pieces for an on-trend contrast. You can even add some with crystals or stones if you want to mix it up. if you’re looking for inspiration our pendant necklaces are great for layering.

Achieving Balance

Layering necklaces is all about balance. Mix and match different styles, weights and finishes of necklace to get the right stack. Start with your focal point necklace and layer shorter and longer pieces around it. Avoid overcrowding the space and allow each necklace to shine individually and collectively.
