How To Layer Necklaces
Ever wonder how to layer necklaces? How many is too many, or not enough? And which necklaces to layer together? The art of necklace-stacking is one that requires a little strategic thinking. If you’re looking for ideas and style advice, then you’ve come to the right place … so let’s get layering!
Here are some tips and tricks to help you achieve an effortless statement stack.
Main Rules For Layering:
Find your base
This piece will act as a base and anchor your look. Your base necklace tends to be heavier, allowing lighter weights to mix in harmony.
It’s all about texture
Think about adding detail, whether it’s with a mix of chunky or skinny chains, as well as different textures (think beads, pearls, links or charms), to encourage separation.
Rules are meant to be broken, so try wearing different metals simultaneously. Mix up your look on different days, depending on the balance you are wanting – either silver, yellow or rose gold. There is beauty in eclecticism, and you can get more varied combinations! Jewellery is all about self-expression, so don’t be shy.
Heavy-weight vs. light-weight
More is more and less is more. Think about your look and what you would like to achieve. A subtle statement or a bolder look? Build your pieces until you have the desired style and length. Remember, your neck-stack is your story.
What’s your focal point?
Complete the look by drawing the eye to a pendant or charm.
Layering Looks We Love

The Chain Game
Here’s One We Made Earlier
A layered look we love is the St Tropez multi-chain necklace. It’s a pre-made multi-chain neck-mess that takes the guesswork out of layering. Just throw on and go. It’s a winner!
Keep FocusedMake your focal point a symbol of meaning with a semi-precious pendant crafted from best-selling gemstones, like black spinel, rose quartz, smokey quartz, tigers eye, malachite and more. Or drape our Legacy locket with a fine handmade Duchess chain, to create a luxurious focal point.
Make A StatementMore is more when it comes to piling on multiple necklaces with different textures, colours and lengths. Layer different pearls with multi-chain necklaces for a ‘go luxe or go home’ vibe, like our Resort and La Mer pearl necklaces with our St Tropez multi-chain necklace.
Layer Necklaces Like A Minimalist
Keeping it simple is the key to creating an effortless minimal stack. The key is to wear two or three fine chains together – like our Superfine necklaces. For a touch of minimalist texture, add our delicate Santorini pearl necklace.
The key is to experiment and have fun!
