We know what it’s like, you see someone wearing the most amazing combination of necklaces so you try to recreate it yourself and.. something just is not right. With endless styles to choose from and tons of natural stones and metal finishes, it can be hard to put things together that feel like they actually belong with each other. Creating the perfect layered necklace look can seem intimidating but it’s actually so simple. So, grab your morning coffee, take a deep breath, go slow, and follow these simple steps to create an effortlessly chic necklace look.

 How To Wear Layered Neckalces

When you’re first starting to experiment with layered necklaces it’s a good idea to stick to similar but not matchy matchy color schemes. Maybe start off with all of the same metals like our moonstone combination that features a Gold and Moonstone Diana necklace from ela rae, a Gold Pendant from VSA, and the brushed Gold Natalie Choker from Sheila Fajl. By sticking with the same metals and throwing in a few similarly toned natural stones, the look stays cohesive with little effort on your part.

If you’d prefer to jump right in with mixing your metals try what we did and pair a cool toned stone like Iolite on a Gold chain Diana from ela rae with a Silver and Gold Pendant from VSA and Silver Natalie Choker from Sheila Fajl, finding specific pieces that feature more than one metal or a cool toned stone on gold helps ease the transition from one metal to another and really pull the look together.

The most important thing to remember when creating your own layered necklace style is to have fun and take risks, never be afraid to let your true individual style shine. If you like the way it looks, it looks good. Sometimes it’s okay to break the rules.
