HOW TO LAYER NECKLACES

We adore layered jewellery, from earrings, rings, necklaces, and more. Layering your jewellery is an empowering form of self-expression, and how you do it can elevate your own unique style.

Layered necklaces can appear effortless, however we know how daunting it can be trying to create your look.

Luckily, we have a few tips that can help you select the perfect combination for you. The beauty of layering is the infinite choice of lengths, symbols, and chain styles that create timeless looks you can wear from day to night.

1. Number of necklaces

We typically recommend wearing 2-3 necklaces for the perfect layered look, to avoid appearing overcrowded, however anywhere up to 5 can achieve beautiful results.

2. Chain lengths

The beauty of layering your Temple jewellery is the infinite choice of lengths provided by the inclusion of necklace extensions into each design.

You can effortlessly mix and match symbols and chain styles that create timeless looks you can wear from day to night.

The simplest way to start layering is selecting one choker, one necklace worn at medium, length and one worn long.

If you choose to wear two necklaces at the same length, we recommend selecting different chain textures to ensure they don’t get lost in each other.

3. Pendants, Coins & Stones

Pendants are a favourite for a reason, whether it is a coin, stone, or symbol; it is one of the easiest styles to match with outfits and other jewellery.

When layering pendants, start with the pendant as the focal point on your chest, with other chains and necklaces added on top.

Wearing two pendant necklaces is a simple and classic look, and can be easily interchanged with other pieces. If your chains are similar lengths the space can get messy, so try to choose varying lengths.

Adding a choker or short chain to the top can be a delicate way to elevate the look.

Want to add a bit of colour? Stones are an easy way to achieve this. We love sapphires and emeralds.

4. Choose your materials

You may have heard people saying not to mix materials, and while many people choose to wear only one at a time, either gold or silver, don’t be afraid to stand out and mix the two.

If done well, combining gold and silver together can achieve some beautiful results.
