Layering Pieces

The foundations of laying necklaces is varying chain lengths. Layered necklaces give the same effects as a statement necklace, but with a lighter, more casual vibe. 

Staggering your chain lengths allows each individual necklace to shine, creating depth and texture to your outfit. Starting with your shortest chain, layer two or three necklaces, and adjust the spacing between them until you are happy. Try spacing each necklace equally.

First think about where you’re comfortable with people being drawn to, then think about the chain; start with 2-4 necklaces. More than that can start to look messy and get all tangled up.

Pick one focal point- a pendant necklace is a good place to start. Then add a choker or large link chain. It’s easier to stick with the same metals – like gold or silver. Mixing metals totally works too, but can be harder to get right. 

Find out what colour suits your skin best. If you want to break the rules, don’t over mix- it will look tacky! Think about the” 2:1 ratios when layering three necklaces: 2 silver; 1 gold or 1 gold; 2 silver.

Common Women's Standard Necklace Sizes:

18" Necklace

A common choice for women that will fall just below the throat at the collarbone. This length is popular for adding pendants which will hang over a crew neck.

20" Necklace

Will fall a few inches below the collarbone and allow a little more breathing room. Perfect for a low, plunging neckline or if you want to wear it over a turtleneck.

36" Necklace

Common with pearl strands and will hang below the bosom. They can be worn as a single strand or you can double them for an 18 inch necklace.

Common Men's Standard Necklace Sizes:

20" Necklace

A common length for men which falls right at the collarbone. Pendants will hide under a crew neck or show completely with a low v-neck or unbuttoned dress shirt.

22" Necklace

Falls a few inches below a collar bone and can be worn over or under a shirt. This is a common length for chains because they offer more breathing room.
