Continue reading for our guide to necklace layering with styling tips, it is easier than you may think.

How to with your neckline

A high or low neckline are the easiest to style- you have got the most space to work with.

Where do you want to draw attention to? A choker will draw attention to your high décolletage area, a longer chain will draw the attention down.

Vary necklace length

We may be stating the obvious, but varying length is so important- this is the one rule you should stick too. If you select necklaces and the lengths that are too similar, they will only tangle. It is also worth investing in a chain extender, or two- this small accessory means your jewellery will work hard for you and your chains will work no matter the neckline, something we love at Cybelle.

Layering your necklaces can work for you all year, winter knitted rollnecks- no problem, choose longer length and leave the choker in the jewellery box.

Two layers are a good place to start, not too daunting.

What type of necklaces layer well?

Choose your shorts chain first, a choker or short pendant (12-16 Inches) then move on. If you consider a pendant for your central necklace, remember it’s drop when choosing the length of your third chain.


Textures are gorgeous to play with- for example- our Twisted Rope chain can add sparkle with no stones. Add with chunky and dainty, chain link variations and mixing gold and silver.

Extra styling notes...

Pendant and Charm necklaces create a lovely focus point- stones add sparkle and colour. Charms can carry a special meaning, or power, or hold a personal message that are eye catching.
