It’s rather easy to choose a statement piece of jewellery and remember to not over-complicate things. But when it is time to layer necklaces, that is the moment troubles start for many of us. Layered necklaces can easily become a tangle of chain lengths and a total clash of styles. And still, they are the most fashionable ‘THING’ when it comes to jewellery for the longest time. The idea of layered necklaces approached calmly sometime in 2018 and it is still included in pretty much all the latest fashion predictions for next year, that any fashionista is interested in. Layering jewellery is great way of creating a fashionable appearance that is unique and true to your personal style as it offers a lot of freedom and a sea of options.
Rule of 3
To get this layered necklace thing right you must remember few very simple tips. First and foremost – rule of three. Three is a magic number and there’s a deep spiritual meaning behind it, but not all of us are interested in this side of things, so let’s just say 3 is a great number as it is not too much and not too little, it is simply perfect. Therefore start with three necklaces of three different lengths (35cm, 45cm & 50/60 cm), and three different chain styles (flat, dainty and chunky chain). Easy, ain’t it? However if you have any problems, with choosing the right mix kandynation.com has got you covered by making sure all our necklaces go beautifully together.
Meaning above all
We’ve reached a level as a humanity and society when we finally begin to grasp the importance of things we surround ourselves with. We understand the almost supernatural way in which we are intertwined with everything we associate ourselves with. And therefore we are doing a more conscious job of choosing things we buy and posses. This is when rule number 2 of layering necklaces comes into play. Make sure to choose pieces of jewellery that are meaningful to you. That gold heart pendant you got from your Mom when you were moving to Canada, that infinity necklace your childhood friend gave you before your wedding or that four leaf clover necklace you bought yourself after your boyfriend left you. If it has a special meaning to you – use it as a centerpiece and work around it. Choose the pieces that tell your story as that will make you feel empowered for the day.
Show it off
Rule number three: show off each piece you put on. The number one mistake people do when layering necklaces is overcrowding it. This can easily be avoided by sticking to rule number 1. The most important thing to remember is that each single necklace or even a medallion you choose to layer, should have room to be fully expressed, not hidden by another piece. If you find it difficult to achieve the perfect layered look, you can buy Kandy Nation’s 14K Gold Layered Love Of Stars Necklace or 14k Gold Layered Falling Star Necklace and you are good to go, without the ‘hassle’.
Mix & Match
Despite few ‘no no’s’, layering necklaces gives you plenty of freedom. You can mix and match styles, shapes, sizes. You can mix types of metals – silver, gold go as perfectly together as one color scheme. You can mix stones – diamonds look amazing when paired with other colored stones, even black stones or pearls. Simply speaking: Your imagination is the limit. Simply remember that visual balance is the key and that You can never have too many layers if it feels good to you. How come you ask, because after all More is More. And more jewellery is always better!
Layering jewellery can be a great way to express yourself, your personality and even beliefs. It gives you the canvas to paint a perfect picture of yourself in the eyes of those who see you. That creative way of expression is the reasons why so many women love layering necklaces. They are also versatile, easy to match if you stick to few simple rules and they work for smart-casual and everyday wear.
