5 Techniques for Stacking and Layering Jewelry

Stacking and layering are two of the most common ways to add color, texture and interest to your jewelry collection. Even if you don’t wear a lot of jewelry, these techniques can be used to make your accessories even more interesting—and help them stand out in the crowd.

You could also use different types of materials: metals (such as gold), gemstones (such as diamonds), crystals (such as quartz), or semi-precious stones (such as turquoise). For example, if you want a bold statement look, try stacking several large rings together with one small ring at the bottom for contrast. If you want a more delicate look, try stacking several small rings together with one small ring at the bottom for contrast.


1. Start With an Accessory as Your Focal Point

The first step is to select a show-stopping accessory. Let this be the first of your adornments.

You might choose to accessorize with something subtle that will match your outfit, or you can go all out with a bold statement piece that will be the focal point of your ensemble.

Our rose garnet and mehndi necklace make a beautiful fashion statement. An opal set in gold, albeit on the smaller side, is offered in one of our stacking rings and might provide a beautiful starting point.

2. Pursuing a Collection of Jewelry

Concentrating on one part of the body at a time is the best strategy for layering jewelry. Bracelets, necklaces, and rings are all wonderful options for layering, whether you want to highlight your neck, wrists, or fingers. These necklaces, when piled, will create a stunning effect.

You can layer necklaces by starting with one and adding more to it. Layer necklaces of varying lengths to draw emphasis to your beautiful face. When layering necklaces, it’s best to use a range of shapes, hues, and textures.

Putting on jewelry, whether for the fingers or the wrist, one at a time is a tradition that follows the practice of starting with a ring on one hand.

You can accessorize in other ways, but it’s ideal to keep the jewelry on the rest of your body simple so it doesn’t steal the show from your focal point.

Necklaces worn in a layered fashion can be any length from a choker to an opera length or longer. An odd number of necklaces, such as three or five of varying lengths, is recommended for accessorizing, though two necklaces would do. Wearing numerous necklaces at once? Make sure they’re different in some way, whether it be shape, color, or texture.

Pick up one show-stopping piece and keep the rest simple. Nowadays you get a set of layered necklaces which consists of more than one chain combined to make one, they are easily available at any necklace shop.


3. Choosing Multiple Jewelry Pieces

Any number of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings can be worn without concern for stacking. whatever completes the outfit you’re already wearing.

Putting jewelry on every possible part of your body isn’t necessary, and there are instances when less is more. But there are times when more is indeed better. Whatever you feel most comfortable in and whatever the occasion calls for is what you should wear. It’s still possible to have a central design focus.


4. Should All Jewelry Items Match Together?

Some of our jewelry sets are designed to be worn together. Necklace and earring pairs are the most common, although other jewelry pieces, such as bracelets and rings, are occasionally included in these sets as well. We have numerous sets that work well together, so if you’re interested in buying a gift, we recommend browsing our amulets and bouquets.

If clashing isn’t your thing or isn’t appropriate for the event you’re dressing for, opt for pieces that have a similar style without being identical. This is easily accomplished with our flower and amulet collections, as the motifs are all fairly similar in size and style and hence pair nicely together.

The sunburst necklace, the silver eye stud earrings, and the amulets bracelet would make a lovely set of amulets. In this case, the sunburst amulet, with its dazzling citrine and gold setting, is a perfect complement to the subtle silver accessories.

5. Mixing and Matching Metals is OK

At one time considered tacky, mixing precious metals like silver, gold, and rose gold is now commonly accepted.

Unless you’re going for a mismatched effect, you can wear jewelry made of different metals together. For instance, sterling silver bracelets and rings would combine beautifully with an opal set in solid gold chains.

However, if you own a whole collection of jewelry crafted from the same metal, feel free to flaunt it. Wearing only silver, gold, or rose gold jewelry can go with a wide variety of outfits and accessories. Examine the pros and cons of working with various metals when creating jewelry.

Once you’ve decided on a statement piece of jewelry, whether or not you’ll be layering, and your desired level of uniformity in your ensemble, you can start playing around with different combinations.


If you’re simply experimenting for the sake of it, or if you find a combination that you really enjoy but it doesn’t work for the occasion you’re dressing for, make a note of the combinations that work so you may use them again. This is a great way to gradually add diversity, intrigue, and versatility to your clothing.

Famous fashion designer Coco Chanel once said, “Take one thing off before you leave the house.” In case you need some direction on what to do before you leave the house, maybe this would help. You might also look yourself squarely in the eye and decide to forego the advice of Coco Chanel in favor of embracing your own individual style.
