I teamed up with one of my favorite jewelers, Parpala Jewelry, to give style tips on how to successfully layer necklaces.  She was even so kind enough to offer FashionedChic readers 20% off all orders with code: FashionedChic20 through December 8th!  And if that wasn’t awesome enough she is sending out e-gift cards with every purchase for $20-$100 dollars off your next purchase!  I’m obsessed with the her jewelry and the quality is amazing – everything is waterproof!  Enjoy!

So without further ado, the style tips….

When layering necklaces, it is all about creating a beautiful balance.  Below are tips to ensure the you strike that perfect balance:

1.  Choose pieces with similar details that enhance each other, yet are unique enough to add some contrast.

2.  It is important to consider the weight of each piece, even if that means mixing bold with dainty pieces.  Bold chokers are balanced out with dainty chains with eye-catching charms.  Likewise a heavy chain balances well with multiple lighter chains.

3. Spacing is essential to creating a balanced look. Each piece should be arranged so that they complement each other and not clutter or twist on one another.

4.  Considering the neckline of your top and how simple or detailed it is, is key to layering necklaces successfully. The simpler the neckline, the more elaborate the pieces may be and vice versa.
