Don’t be afraid to spice up something big with something delicate. Highlight your designer pendant while wearing your favorite go-to sentimental piece. Layering these pieces calls attention to a standout piece of jewelry making your designer piece casual and versatile. Swap the initial for a cross or a diamond pendant. The key is the size proportion.  Your large piece should be approximately four times bigger than your other pieces.

Layering lavishly is easy if you simply wear the same color gold.  Contrasting shapes look great together, just look below to see how this arrow necklace goes great with an oval morganite pendant.





Take layering to all new heights and add a lavalier  or “Y” necklace. The necklaces’ length elongates the body adding a pop of style. Layering these three pieces creates a cohesive look. Evenly space necklaces in ascending order from small to large adds a lengthening effect. Look below to see how groups of three are visually appealing.
