Top 7 tips to layering pendants
Layering diamond pendants is on-trend worldwide with a number of stylish women compiling multiple chains and diamond pendants to create an even larger statement piece. The layered pendant look adds style and glamour to your appearance, but how exactly would one accomplish the trend without looking over accessorised? Fortunately, the art of layering can be mastered with a few easy steps. Here are a few tips you need to follow in order to accomplish the irresistible look:
TOP TIP 1: ADD CLASSIC CHAINS TO A LONG PENDANT
For an elegant and stylish look, come day or night, add a few classic oval link, snake or wheat link chains of different lengths, with the longest or shortest chain featuring a diamond pendant. This way the chains will bring out the diamond pendant, making it the main focus of the entire collection. In essence, the trendy look simply proves that a stack of delicate strands makes for a very good statement piece.
TOP TIP 2: MAKE SURE TO START FROM THE TOP
Before placing a number of chains and pendants around your neckline make sure to start at the beginning. But what exactly would be defined as the beginning? The best way to layer a number of pendants would be to start with the shortest piece from the collection. You would do this by placing a small pendant around the neckline before adding any other layers. Build up the layers by adding a slightly longer chain and pendant each time to achieve your desired look. This way the entire collection will come together perfectly around the neckline without being over the top.
TOP TIP 3: BE BOLD TOWARDS THE END
When it comes to layering a number of pendants around the neckline make sure to add your statement piece towards the end. How exactly would one accomplish this designer look? Start with two delicate pendants then add a third and more decorative pendant that will bring the entire look to an elegant complete; the long and more visual pendant will perfectly frame the other two pendants above.
TOP TIP 4: ADD AN EXTRA LAYER TO A BOLD ITEM
To draw attention to a bold pendant jewellery item add an extra-long layer chain with a bit of colour. By doing this you will give your statement piece even more of an authentic boost; the delicate and smaller pendant will simply add to the bold jewellery item's overall look.
TOP TIP 5: MIX AND MATCH
For many years it has been tradition to pair the same colour pendants with each other. But, you don’t necessarily have to stick to tradition. For a more edgy, yet sophisticated, look rather combine different colour metals with each other. For the best results try to mix and match white gold and yellow gold, rose gold and yellow gold or add a combination of all three.
TOP TIP 6: ADD A BIT OF COLOUR
To brighten up your look, don’t be afraid to layer your pendants with different types of colour diamonds or match diamond pendants with tanzanite pendants. Keep in mind, unlike the tip above, the metals of the chains would then be the same colour. To take the trend a bit further add a few jewellery pieces and mix and match it with similar-coloured diamonds.
TOP TIP 7: THERE SHOULD BE A BALANCE
When it comes to layering a series of pendants around your neckline it’s important to maintain a balance. But how exactly would you manage to accomplish an overall balanced look? If you’re thinking about layering two or three pendants around your neckline, don’t overdo your look with elaborate earrings. Rather consider a pair of classic diamond stud earrings to complete the look.
The trendy diamond pendant layered look is here to stay, so feel free to experiment. Luckily, for you, these easy tips will help you accomplish the look in no time. Just remember at the end of the day, it’s about finding a style and look that suits your personality.
