    Layered chains can look simple and neck-hugging or go down till your decolletage. But the costume you choose and the occasion are deciding points on the necklace layering level.

    In the summer months, you can wear a 3-layer pendant of burnished silver and emerald stone over your plunging neck top for some depth. You can team up your plain turtlenecks and chunkier knitwear with gold-fill layered necklaces in the colder months. You can also opt for layered pendants of the same length but in contrasting colors. Add zodiac symbols or talismans to your layered pieces for a non-conformist look. Explore creative styles in layering for workwear and social evenings.

      A waterfall brings total awe and delight with water flowing down vertically in V-fashion. You can implement this cascade effect in layered necklaces as well. Make your first layer sit closest to your collarbone. Then work your way down with the next set of layers. Add more layers to your comfort level and carrying skill.        

      Multiple snake chains with a lobster clasp are an excellent example of creating a stunning cascade effect with neck jewelry. Leave enough space between the necklace layers for each layer to get worthy attention. A coin in one layer, a Saint Christopher in the other are tips to glam your neckpiece. You can also have your name alphabet in one row. Layering your neckwear in a cascading arrangement helps create more visually stunning options.

        Necklace layers with little distance between them give a congested look. It also upsets the layering charm and looks forced. Different necklace lengths help you experiment with layering. If you are new to layering necklaces, download a necklace size chart to get more clarity.     

        Start your layering with the neck-hugging choker. Now put on more layers by leaving enough space between the necklaces to avoid any jumbling. Here are the different neck lengths to consider:

        • 14 inches is ideal for wearing chokers.
        • 16 inches is suitable for wearing shorter necklaces like a pendant, beads, chain-link necklaces, ropes.     
        • 19 inches is a perfect size for putting on longer necklaces that sit above your cleavage.
        • 24 inches is the best size to wear longer necklaces.

        Each layer can put up a spectacle in gemstone, bead, pearl, or talisman. Different jewelry materials for different lengths are a creative way of showing your love for layering. You can even create a layering effect with shorter necklaces that will sit on top. When layering, go for an odd number. A 3-layered necklace has its appeal against the pretty-looking 2-layers.

          Most jewelry lovers like to stick to one metal while picking a necklace of their choice. Switching between metals for different occasions brings novelty to your dressing and helps you put on a fresh look each time. It widens your layering impact and gives a new meaning to your jewelry sense when you go beyond the monochromatic metal palette.

          Opt for necklaces of different metals to create visual interest. Mix metals evenly. Consider a combination of rose gold and silver necklace with gold and silver bracelets. This will give a cohesive look. Think about your favorite necklace’s tone to pair them well with similar shades. Choose metals that complement your skin undertone. Yellow gold and rose gold go well with warmer skin undertones, whereas white gold and silver are for cooler undertones. Also, look into the proportions of different metals. They should ideally have a similar thickness to look right.
