Mixing, matching, and wearing multiple necklaces at once isn’t a new trend, but it’s definitely one that we’re loving right now.

Layering on different styles and pieces allows you to express your unique style and personality.

Layer Different Lengths

Let’s start out simple, layering by length is the easiest approach to mastering the look.

When staggering by length, every piece ends up laying neatly. That way, you can see each detail.

Start With a Pendant

Pendants make for the perfect starting point when layering, let it be the focal point and build from there with dainty chains and symbols. Don’t be afraid to layer on more than one pendant. Play with textures and even mix metals for statement pieces that shine together.

Experiment with shapes & styles 

Try out different lines, mix symbols & pendants to make the look your own. Pulling together unexpected combinations can make for a great look. Varying lengths will ensure that each layer ends up laying neatly. Sticking with odd numbers is always a solid rule of thumb when mixing and matching.
