NEWS FLASH: Layering necklaces are IN, IN, IN and we have a strong hunch this trend will stick around for a few seasons. We’ve teamed up with one of our favorite designers, Gabriel & Co. to give you some tips and inspiration to help you master this look!

Back to Basics

Let’s start with the basics. There are tons of styles in the jewelry world, but we’ll help you narrow things down to the few that matter when starting to layer.

Below you’ll find 6 key styles every fashionista should know. Also listed are standard lengths and placement descriptions to help you visualize where each necklace will fall.

STYLE  LENGTH PLACEMENT
Collar 14 inches Snug around the neck
Choker 16 inches Against the base of the throat
Princess 18 inches Rests along or just below the collarbone
Matinee 20 to 24 inches Rests on the decollete
Opera 28 to 36 inches Directly on or slightly below the bust
Rope 36 to 42 inches Can run as low as the navel if unwrapped

In order to achieve a flawless layered look, we suggest selecting pieces in a variety of lengths.
