Whenever I’m asked about layering necklaces, my answer is always play with your pieces and see which combinations work for you!

Matching your metals is always a safe bet, as is combining a statement necklace with simpler ones. Try different chains, and don’t be afraid to add pendants into the mix.

It began with a pair of repurposed heirloom flower earrings, and ended with a set of necklaces that are as elegant as they are uniquely artistic. The yellow gold flowers, set with diamonds and pearls, are showcased next to diamond-studded chain links and a single floating pearl. A golden feather is accented with rows of organically placed white diamonds, and a diamond clasp puts the finishing touch on this truly fabulous set of necklaces.
The key to these gorgeous layered necklaces are the anchoring themes that are seen repeated throughout. While the clear unifying factor is the bright yellow gold, the diamond and pearl daisies, set asymmetrically to the sides, go one step further to making these necklaces easily worn together.
While these pieces don't blend, they effortlessly harmonize. The chain with the thicker links serves as a modern day choker, and is an anchor for this set. The longer, opera style chain can be worn in tandem with this choker necklace, or can be doubled around and worn as two layers. This longer necklace, with its diamond studded feather, front clasp, and hammered links, is a modern take on a classic long layering necklace.
