There are many ways to layer a real diamond necklace. Layering necklaces enables you to get more use out of jewelry that would otherwise sit in a box. It also helps you be trendy and creative. At Jeweler’s Touch, we have many diamond necklaces for you to choose from, representing many designs and styles. If you’re having a hard time settling on just one, here are some tips on layering diamond necklaces to find a way that works for you.
Wear Necklaces of Varying Lengths and Thicknesses
Mixing chain lengths can create a unique and personal look, depending on your outfit. Wearing multiple thin chains or chains of different thicknesses is also an option. Diamond pendants and medallions can add a finishing touch. They’re often best hung low on the neckline to create a focal point, but that is up to you.
Mix and Match Metals
Some advise keeping the metals the same. But when it comes to layering necklaces, there are many opinions and choices. We say don’t be shy about mixing metals, especially when it comes to white gold and yellow gold or gold and silver. It will make your diamonds sparkle even more.
Decide How Many to Stack
There’s no limit on how many diamond necklaces you can stack. The simplest is a two-necklace stack; ideally, the chains should be separated by two inches (again, that’s up to you) to distinctly separate the layers. It also helps prevent tangling. The shorter necklace on top can be a diamond choker, with the longer one providing a second layer that complements it.
A three-layer stack can start with a choker and then two longer necklaces. One way to approach it is to choose a smaller pendant for the second layer and a larger pendant for the third layer. You can buy stacked chain necklaces as one piece, but stacking different necklaces lets you personalize your style.
Choose a Statement Piece with a Light Chain
A real diamond necklace with a large statement piece is complemented very well by a light chain. Lengthier stacks are suited for lower-cut necklines; V-necks can highlight the layers even better. But overall, this arrangement is more casual and allows you to wear a statement necklace more freely and with just about anything. Smaller, more delicate pendants also make great statement pieces.
Wear Multi-Tiered Medallion Chains
Fun, energetic, and attractive, multi-tiered medallion chains provide a mystical yet modern feel. A tennis necklace can be the focal point. This approach is casual yet can be worn with a dress for a night out. It also allows you to be creative with shapes, symbols, and messages.
Consider Different Diamond Shapes
Round, pear, and heart-shaped diamonds and other shapes can be mixed, whether on different necklaces or the same piece. With the diamonds layered, it can add a whole new dimension to the arrangement and create a different look and feel. Mixing necklace shapes is another option, such as combining a diamond tennis necklace with a diamond lariat. Since a lariat necklace has a tassel that hangs down, it should be the longest and lowest layer.
Wear Necklaces of a Similar Length
You don’t have to stick to the two-inch rule. Two or three necklaces can be worn relatively close together to create a cohesive and polished look. Whether you wear a T-shirt, blouse, or jacket, closely paired real diamond necklaces can be stunning.
Use Natural Black Diamonds
Black is a rare color for natural diamonds. However, it goes great with chain necklaces and just about everything else. Black diamonds layered with other chains provide a versatile way to mix and match jewelry. They also pair well with gold and colored gemstones such as emeralds, sapphires, or rubies.
