What is layering ?

Layering is the art of overlapping several necklaces at the same time to obtain a balanced and unique whole. Through the layering technique you can indulge yourself in creating infinite styles and mix and match for your outfits.

In this article, I share valuable tips on how to create the perfect necklace layering . You just have to follow a few simple rules.

How long should the necklaces be? Here's how to choose the lengths

To obtain a perfect result, the necklaces must have different lengths and be spaced from each other by a few centimeters.

To make the choice easier on our site, for each necklace, you will find the SIZE filter that will help you choose the necklaces for your layering based on their length in centimeters.


To start, choose the first necklace which should be 40-45cm long at the most. It can be coarse-grained, a statement necklace or thin, filigree with a pendant. By choosing the texture of the first necklace, you choose the style of your entire layering composition.

If you like two necklaces of the same size in our eshop , don't worry! Each necklace has an "extension" chain that allows you to extend the lacing of the necklace by an extra 5 cm.


The second necklace you have to choose is the shorter one, that is 30-40 cm at the most in length. Choose a different style than the one you have chosen for the number 1 necklace: different styles and combinations are the key to an attractive look!


Necklace number 3 is the highlight. Choose a long necklace, between 40 and 80 cm in length.

AY, with a large pendant, with glittery pendants, of a different color from the others: with the choice of this necklace you define the style you have chosen to create for this look!

How to choose layering necklaces styles

As you may have already guessed, a perfect and balanced leyering is made up of a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 4 necklaces.

Different styles are the key to an attractive look. Simple, worked, thin, wide, with stones. The secret is to choose different necklaces and combine them together according to your tastes.

Every time you create your layering composition remember that you are always at the center, unique and special.

Remember: there is no right or wrong way to match necklaces. Be creative and have fun creating your perfect layering!
