Why Wear One When You Can Wear Them All?

An Easy Guide To Layering And Stacking Jewelry Like A Pro

Layering and stacking jewelry can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.  Follow our guide to seamlessly stack and layer your favorite pieces for a look that is sure to wow!


1. Pair Two Statement Necklaces Together.


Here we took one statement necklace and paired it with three others.  When pairing statement necklaces, a good rule of thumb is to make sure the neckline is the same.  In these examples, each statement necklace follows the same scoop neckline, making an easy, clean stack!

2. Pair together delicate short necklaces with longer necklaces or several long necklaces together!


We paired some short basic necklaces with longer necklaces that had similar color schemes, which made for a nice cohesive look.  If you are new to layering/stacking, stacking three necklaces together may seem intimidating, so keep it simple with two pieces and you’ll be good to go!

Stacking bracelets is a piece of cake! Just keep in mind the mixture of metals, shapes, and colors.

When beginning to mix metals, a good trick to try is to stack bracelets that already incorporate mixed metals in their design.  If you look at the left picture, each bracelet has different metal colors, but what makes them work well together is that they all have the same crystal stones in their design.  This creates a clean and cohesive look.

In the middle picture, we paired a bangle charm bracelet with two stretch bracelets of varying sizes.  All three bracelets have unique shapes, but again have unifying features that keep a clean look.  In this case, those features are gold metal and beads, along with turquoise stones displayed in two of the bracelets.

If you are unsure about trying this trend on your own, there are plenty of bracelets that come pre-stacked already! Try a set of bangles like the one shown in the photo on the far right to get comfortable with stacked bracelets!

This is something that is unique to each person, since piercings tend to vary in location on the ears.  However, the idea remains the same: to make sure that you choose pieces that compliment each other, whether it’s in their color, shape, or theme.

In the picture on the left, we paired three different earrings together in one look.  All three earrings are of varying shapes and sizes, yet this look works because they all are gold-based. Remember, when stacking earrings, go from big to small. Start with heaviest or biggest earrings at the bottom of the lobe and scale lighter and smaller up the ear.

If you only have one piercing but still want a layered look, check out the photos in the center and the right.  You can try a double ball stud earring to add dimension or a cuff earring to create an illusion of length up the earlobe.

There are many options when choosing the right rings to work with: pre-stacked, different sizes/shapes & midi rings.

If you are just beginning to stack jewelry, you may want to buy rings that are pre-stacked, like the set shown in the first picture. This will help you get more comfortable with the look before you tackle a more aggressive stack on your own.  For a more dramatic look, pairing together a small statement ring with a basic midi ring is always a great idea.  If you are comfortable pairing several large rings together as shown in the middle picture, go for it!  If not, go for a simpler look similar to the left and right photographs.  You don’t need to have a ring on every finger to make a statement, although we completely support it!
