Adding layers to your neckline is an easy way to switch up your everyday looks and show off your creativity. Here are a few of my favorite rules of thumb when playing with pendants, gemstone pieces, simple chains, and more.

1. LOOK AT LENGTHS
Go with delicate pieces close to your neck, and layer heavier pendants and chains as you work your way down.

2. CHOOSE A CENTERPIECE
Start with a statement piece you l-o-v-e, then work around it.

3. EXPERIMENT WITH TEXTURE
Opt for various types of chains to create easy, added texture. Think paperclip link chains, snake chains, and box chains.

4. COMBINE FASHION & FINE
Who says you can’t mix high-quality pieces with fashion or costume jewelry? I give you permission to layer, let’s say, a chunky bib statement necklace with a real diamond necklace.

5. MAKE IT ABOUT MEANING
