Your guide to layering necklaces
All of VRAI’s gold chain necklaces work well with layering depending on their length. Medallions like the Inner Light Medallion or Hamsa Hand Necklace are perfect as a first layer. Adding on an additional Knife-Edge Bezel Necklace is an ideal way of adding a little extra shimmer for an effortless, everyday look.
Tennis necklaces are perfect for layering. Start with your preferred size and length of Tennis Necklace, then mix and match with Arc Necklaces, Solitaire Pendants, or the Linked Tennis Necklace for bold and dramatic style.
Every style of Solitaire diamond necklace is ideal for layering. Multiple solitaires can be worn at once if you adjust the length to create a cascade (VRAI Solitaire Necklaces feature two trigger closures for desired length). They can also be mixed and matched with Bezel Solitaire Necklaces for modern-yet-timeless layering.
Solitaire diamond pendants are wonderful for layering because the diamond pendant itself adds extra length. Consider pairing with a Solitaire Necklace or the Knife-Edge Bezel Station necklace for perfect long layers.
Frequently asked questions about layering necklaces
The best way to layer necklaces is to choose two to three necklaces of varying lengths. It’s also best to mix styles; for example, a great three-piece layered necklace would include a Tennis Necklace, an Arc Necklace, and a Solitaire Pendant worn at staggering lengths for a brilliant and decadent cascade.
How many necklaces you layer is entirely up to you. A standard layered look includes two or three necklaces worn together. This is usually to ensure that they lay at different lengths and don’t tangle.
Keeping your layering to two or three necklaces at once and adjusting the length will ensure that they don’t tangle. Some light tangling in the back around closures is normal. For those who want to guarantee that there’s no tangling, there are third-party necklace detanglers that link the necklaces together while keeping their chains separate.
Buying several necklaces in the same style is the best way to create a layered necklace set. For example, a Knife-Edge Bezel Necklace and Knife-Edge Bezel Station Necklace would pair well, as would a Solitaire Necklace and Solitaire Pendant. The most popular way to layer necklaces, however, is to mix styles for a more complex look.
