Good news for fine jewelry lovers: layering is all the rage, which gives us (another) reason to show off some of our favorite pieces all at once! However, there is a line between wearing enough and wearing too much, and if your look is too busy, your beautiful baubles won’t get the attention they deserve.

Below, you’ll find 5 tips for layering necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings to achieve a look that’s edgy and chic, not weighed down. After all, a trend that encourages wearing shiny things by the handful is definitely one we can get behind!


Mix & match metals


Why choose between different hues of gold and silver when you can just wear ‘em all! Mixing and matching is all the rage, and if you’re putting together a trend-worthy stack of bracelets, rings, earrings, or necklaces, there’s no need to stick with just one color! You might even opt for multi-metal jewelry pieces that do the work for you.

With that said, there’s nothing wrong with being monochromatic, either; dainty pieces in like colors (for instance, slim gold bands on your fingers) will give you a look that’s clean and polished.

Play with texture & length

If variety is the spice of life, then this same philosophy can be applied to your jewelry! Try wearing a chunky watch with slim bangles, a gemstone ring between simple bands, and a stack bracelets with some enamel or leather thrown into the mix! When it comes to necklaces, two or three chains in varying lengths make a beautiful statement while putting your most gorgeous charms on display.

Pick a focal point

When considering accessory layering for your entire look, pick a focal point that you want to stand out. For instance, if you’re showing off your décolleté, go for a sparkly necklace (or three), or maybe you’d prefer bold chandelier earrings to go with a criss-crossing neckline.

Don’t wear statement necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings all at once; your overall look will be too busy, and your most special pieces will get lost in the clutter. Pick a focal point or two to wear your most drool-worthy jewelry, and keep the rest simple.

Stack understated pieces

Some of the chicest stacked looks are also the simplest. Stacking dainty necklaces, rings, or bracelets all add an air of understated sophistication to any outfit. You can layer earrings, too: stacks of delicate studs and classic hoops look gorgeous on girls with multiple piercings. You can even add a cuff around the cartilage — no hole required!

If you’re an edgy type of gal, try playing around with modern shapes like ear climbers, stick, or chain earrings. You can also jump on board the asymmetrical trend by wearing different pieces in each ear!

Add a pop of color

One of the best ways to add interest to your jewelry layers — necklaces, rings, bracelets, or earrings — is to add a splash (or two) of color! Invest in some gemstone rings, vivid stud earrings, or a jewel-studded bracelet that’ll pop against the rest of your stack.
