It’s a trend that has grown in strength and is likely to be around for a little while longer. Layered jewellery is a great way to wear something new using your old pieces. It’s also a great way to get wear out of your collection and experiment with different looks. Today, we are exploring how to layer jewellery in order to get the most out of your pieces and express your personality.
Layer different lengths of necklaces
If you like the idea of the layered necklace but are unsure how to go about it, our top tip is to opt for different lengths. This will make sure each piece is seen separately and also works coherently as a set. You can also use different pendants on the same chain to make your own interesting necklace.
Choose a uniting theme
It’s a nice idea to wear different pieces that have the same underlying theme or design - for example, you can wear different geometric shapes together, or maybe pieces that you associate with a particular memory or experience.
Mix statement pieces with more delicate jewellery
We believe in subtlety and delicacy when it comes to choosing pieces, and you could mix these with one statement piece so that they complement each other.
Stack bangles and bracelets with your watch
Many of us wear a watch every day, so you could try stacking bangles and bracelets with your watch. You can even try experimenting with different metals and colours.
Stacking rings is a great way to layer your jewellery. Stacking different colours, shapes, and gemstones can make for a very interesting style. Don’t hesitate to mix stone colours or different metals. You could even mix an intricate “traditional” ring with a simple, contemporary band.
Think about balance and spacing
A key thing to remember when layering jewellery is to think carefully about how you space the pieces. You might want to draw attention to one particular area of your body, and this can work well, but be wary of overloading. To create the perfect balance, wear layered necklaces, bracelets and earrings but don’t neglect one area in favour of the other.
The most important thing is to wear pieces you love - but don’t hesitate to try something new and different!
