For those who are new to this particular style of jewellery, you may be wondering just how to begin layering your necklaces. We have all the tips you'll need to stack your chains perfectly.

What are Layered Necklaces?

Layered necklaces are multiple chains that are worn together. Often these gold necklaces come joined together by a single clasp. However, they can come as individual necklaces, and even in a set. Layering your necklaces is a beautiful way to achieve laid-back glamour.

How to Choose the Perfect Necklaces to Layer

When deciding how to layer necklaces, choosing the right pieces is the first step. There are a few things to think about when picking silver necklaces that pair perfectly together. The most important of which is choosing the right necklace lengths.

The beauty in layered necklaces comes from the versatility they bring. Due to this, you will want to select chains of different lengths. This allows each piece to shine individually without crowding each other creating a tasteful collective.

How Many Necklaces Should I Layer?

When it comes to knowing how many necklaces to layer, it ultimately comes down to personal taste. You can keep it streamlined and opt for two chains, or go all out and make a statement with lots. However, for those just starting on their layering journey, three is an ideal number to begin with. This will allow you to really experiment with different necklaces lengths and create a multitude of gorgeous looks.

How to Detangle Layering Necklaces

An important aspect of knowing how to layer necklaces, is how to keep them from tangling. This knowledge will help you to keep your pieces looking flawless throughout the day. Necklaces that are different in length are less likely to tangle than those that are similar, so opting for a range in sizes is the best option. Ensuring each chain is free of tangles and knots before wearing is also essential.

If your necklaces do become tangled however, we suggest laying them on a flat surface and using a straight item, such as a needle to help undo the knots gently. You can also use this technique to untangle stacking bracelets too.
