Layering necklaces is one of the most popular jewellery trends of all time. It’s an incredibly easy trend to start wearing and all you need are a few necklaces to start experimenting with your style. With layers, it’s a good idea to pick a number of necklaces you want to layer before you explore different lengths and styles. While too much is never enough, start with 3 or 4 necklaces. This creates a base for your necklace collection.
First, pick a pendant necklace that features something meaningful to you, like an initial, gemstone or fun shape. This is perfect as a standalone necklace or as a centre for your layers. To accessorise further, choose a shorter necklace that sits close to the neck like a chain. Chains are extremely versatile and add more shape to your layers. To cap off the layers, choose a longer necklace to add more length to the body. These necklaces can be worn individually or all together so picking 3 classic styles that mean a lot to you will help complete your jewellery box.
Hoops have been around for centuries, and the hoop craze is showing no sign of slowing down. Hoop earrings are powerful accessories that come in a range of sizes, shapes, and styles. They’re extremely versatile and compliment the shape of your face so having a classic pair in your repertoire is essential. Hoops can be part of an earring stack and back up a showier pair of earrings or be the star of the show. They can be dressed up or down and by playing with different metals, colours, and sizes, you have the ultimate accessory to fall back on. We recommend picking a plain petite hoop to start off with and start going bigger and bolder as you build up your collection. To make the simpler styles more exciting, you can find interchangeable charms that you can slip onto the hoops for something a little extra.
Every shade of gold
If you love to experiment with your jewellery, try and fill your jewellery box with lots of different colours and materials. This way, you can easily mix up your style and find new ways to accessorise your favourite clothes and designs. Start with a standard metal like yellow gold or sterling silver. These are typically the most popular materials that you’ll find on the market and go well with a variety of accents and outfits. When you master these metals, you can branch into more materials like rose gold, beads, and leather, depending on what you like to wear.
Rings are a fun way to accessorise your hands and stacking rings are a great way to tone down or jazz up a look. Stacking rings are simple bands that can be stacked on top of each other to make your fingers and hands look more elegant. The best thing about stacking rings is that you can wear as many or as little as you like. Stacking rings can be worn across multiple fingers or layered high on one finger. They can all be in the same colour for a coordinated vibe or different colours for a mismatched and textured look.
Diamonds & pearls
Gemstones are beautiful accents that should be part of any and every jewellery boxes. With so many gemstones to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming. Diamonds and pearls are classic gemstones that should be part of every collection. Diamonds are unique sparkly gems that look beautiful in all jewellery forms, especially earrings and engagement or wedding rings. Pearls are natural stones that are created by molluscs and have a shiny lustre that looks beautiful in a necklace or bracelet strands. Together, diamonds and pearls give off a subtle yet sparkly look that’s perfect for dressy events.
