Wedding fashion is constantly evolving. Many brides try to find a balance between tradition and trends, combining heirloom jewelry with newer pieces to create a look that’s timeless yet memorable. For every bold piece that holds its own against the drama of a strapless dress there are more delicate necklaces that work together to attract more attention than they’d get worn separately.
Here’s how you can use a layered necklace set — or design one on your own — that brings the perfect finishing touch to your wedding day attire.
Why layered necklaces are trending
Layered necklaces have been showing up on red carpets and in editorial spreads in some of fashion’s top magazines for years. But the newest versions embrace diversity more than ever before, encouraging jewelry fans to mix and match necklaces of varying styles, lengths, and even colors. As more and more celebrities dress outside the box and take a more avant garde approach to their event outfits, they’re using accessories like layered necklaces to stay on trend and yet highlight their own personal aesthetic.
In other words, anyone can wear layered necklaces and feel “in vogue” and yet showcase a look that’s totally unique — exactly what you want for your big day.
Using a gold layered necklace set for your boho wedding look
One of the prettiest ways to use layered necklaces on your wedding day is with a boho-themed dress. Layers of lace, floral applique, off-the-shoulder necklines, loose-fitting bodices, floaty silk, and tons of embroidery help bring vintage appeal into the modern era. Incorporating a 14K gold layered necklace set works because it mimics that same purposefully haphazard style, like you found each part of your outfit at a high-end thrift store and just piled it on until it felt right.
Example: Combine the Elongated Link Lariat - $125 with our Silver Double Elongated & Large Elongated Link Chain Necklace - $160
Making a simple dress a standout using chunky chains
Curb chain necklaces are known for links that are flattened and then twisted together. Slightly more feminine and refined than the bulkier Cuban chains, curb chains are the perfect pick for brides who want to go bold on their wedding day without feeling weighed down. For extra comfort, look for options that have a single chain around your neck and break into multiple strands where it counts (across your chest).
Playing with pendants
Think it’s a no-no to layer chains with charms? Think again. You can play with multiple chains, each with its own charm or pendant, or choose a couple plain chains and then one larger pendant that’s designed to steal the whole show.
Example: Honor love on your big day by layering the Helena Charm Necklace - $121 and the chain of your choice adorned with Essential Letters - $55 representing you, your sweetheart, and your new (or combined) last names
Style is deeply personal and so is your wedding day. Experimenting with layered necklaces or buying a gold layered necklace set is a great way to create a look that feels fashion-forward but, most importantly, feels like you.
