1. Choose the Right Necklaces

The key to successful necklace layering is selecting the right necklaces to pair together. Consider different lengths, textures, and styles to create a harmonious yet distinctive look. Here are some options to consider:

a. Choker Necklace: Start with a choker, which typically sits close to your neck. This acts as a base for your layered look. Our Origami Owl Birthstone Necklace can be made as a choker necklace or a princess necklace, and it showcases your anniversaries, birthdays, and all special dates with our birthstones.

b. Princess Necklace: Slightly longer than a choker, a princess necklace usually falls around the collarbone. It’s a great middle layer. Origami Owl has a variety of necklaces in it’s empowerment collection that would be a perfect choice – our Overcome necklace shown below (read more about how this Overcome necklace supports women in their infertility journey)

2. Mix and Match Metals

Gone are the days of sticking to one metal. Mixing and matching metals is a hot trend in necklace layering. Combine gold, silver, rose gold, and other metals for an eclectic and stylish look. Remember to balance the tones to create a harmonious effect. You could start with a base metal and incorporate others as accents.

3. Play with Lengths

Varying necklace lengths is crucial to achieving a dynamic and visually appealing layered look. Mix shorter and longer necklaces to create depth and interest. A general rule of thumb is to have a 2-inch difference between each chain and layer, but don’t be afraid to experiment with different lengths to find the combination that suits your style.
