There’s a common theme to the type of necklaces that work best for layering – they’re dainty, they’re gold and they instantly look better when worn as part of a group. The most popular charms include horns, crosses, vintage-looking discs and engraved initial pendants. Mix up the textures by layering pendants with chokers, simple chains with intricate lariats. The key is to experiment until you find your perfect stack. 

But there’s one golden rule to really nailing this trend, and it’s to choose necklaces of varying lengths. We recommend going for a loose choker, a 16”, an 18”, a 20” … you get the picture. Add as many as you like!
