If you're a savvy style enthusiast, you probably know that layering is no longer just for clothes. It’s time to mix and match it up this season by showcasing your jewellery collection. 

Today’s trending looks are all about embracing the eclecticism of your collection and letting your personality shine. 

So, whether you're a seasoned jewellery aficionado or just starting on your journey, we've got you covered with 5 top tips to master the art of layered jewellery.

Understanding Layered Jewellery: Why It's Worth Trying 

As Rachel Zoe once said, "I've always loved layering and accessorising. Maybe it comes from my love of art and putting things together."

Imagine you’re conducting a symphony of self-expression with your favourite pieces—from sleek to bold, every layer tells a story. The beauty of this trend lies in its versatility.

1. Choose a Focal Point: Start With a Statement Piece 

Let's begin with a bang – a statement piece that stops hearts and turns heads. 

Whether it's a dazzling necklace that sparkles from afar or a chunky bracelet that demands attention, this is your starting point. 

It's like building a foundation for a masterpiece. From a statement piece by this season’s trending jewellers to the timeless elegance of a luxury watch, your layering is limited only by your imagination! 

2. Mix Metals and Textures: Embrace Variety 

Why settle for just gold or silver when you can have both? Embrace the magic of mixed metals and textures. 

Picture a delicate chain next to a chunky cuff – it's like a haute couture meets street style extravaganza.

In need of inspiration? The recent Faith Jewels collection Whispers of Love, from acclaimed designer Faith Hilda, delivers a celebration of colour and diversity of materials - destined to revitalise your jewellery collection. 

3. Balance Proportions: From Delicate to Bold 

Whether you’re seeking understated elegance or want to make a head-turning entrance, balanced layered jewellery creates the versatile looks you need. 

Balthasar is famous for unforgettable creations, dubbed “wearable art”. As the designer and goldsmith states, “Every Balthasar holds within it a delicate balance of phenomenal forces, just like the person wearing it.”

It’s this blend of subtlety and strength that makes for unforgettable layered looks.

4. Stackable Rings and Bracelets: Creating Depth and Movement 

Add some oomph with stackable rings and bracelets. Mixing widths and styles is like your ticket to a front-row seat at the fashion show of life.

It's like building a jewellery skyscraper – layers upon layers, creating depth and movement that's utterly captivating.

Melissa Crennan is well-known for crafting versatile pieces that let you effortlessly mix and match to achieve your unique layered style.

5. Confidence Is Key: Rock Your Unique Style 

Here's the ultimate secret sauce – confidence! Mix, match, experiment, and create a look that's as unique as you are.

From the unforgettable appeal of Iris Apfel to the fresh and youthful looks of Olivia Palermo, you’ll never be short of inspiration on your jewellery layering journey. 

It’s all about a fusion of materials, styles and sizes that showcase your unique and invaluable jewellery collection. 

Expert Tips From Renowned Stylists: Advice for Perfecting Your Layered Look

Have you ever wondered how the pros effortlessly achieve that perfectly layered jewellery look? 

We've tapped into the expertise of renowned stylists and jewellery enthusiasts to bring you their invaluable insights:

“Jewellery is the ultimate self-expression, a way to tell your story; it's a conversation you are having with the world without saying a word.”

 - Jessica Richards

“I think jewellery can change an outfit more than anything else. Transformation, punch, individuality: One or all of the above is why you should wear jewellery.”

- Iris Apfel

“Fashion styles come and go, and keeping up with trends can feel like a chore. But classic fine jewellery is a go-to wardrobe staple that always fits and elevates even the most basic outfits.”

- Laryssa Wirstiuk
