In collaboration with Muru Jewellery.
It’s no secret I love to layer my necklaces. Jewellery is, in my opinion, one of the quickest ways to transform an otherwise super basic and bordering on boring outfit into a chic little ensemble. My layering journey (if I can call it that) started years ago when long pearl necklaces were all the rage and layering them gave them a slight edge instead of the lady like look that has always been associated with them.
Nowadays I much prefer layering dainty, more simple and smaller necklaces, normally in gold and with some kind of meaning. I have a necklace with my initial, one with my children’s names, one that says ‘mama’ …. you get the idea right? I can safely say wearing layered necklaces has become part of my everyday looks and it’s something that now comes to me quite naturally.
Obviously, when Muru asked me to style a few of their gorgeous pieces, I was beyond excited. Muru believes that jewellery should be not only an expression of your style but also of one’s hopes and aspirations so you can expect Muru’s designs to be both beautiful and full of meaning.
If you are not sure how to start layering your necklaces read on for a few of my tips but remember that the first rule of layering your necklaces is that there is no rule. Just have fun!
Layer by length
This is quite an obvious one i think. Start with your shortest necklace and gradually add more slightly longer than the last. This is possibly my favourite way of layering necklaces and I never wear more than 3 or 4 layers. It’s a fine line between looking on point and like a Christmas tree.
Once upon a time I had a huge mental block about mixing metals but now I love it. I think the key is to experiment with it and have fun with the different colours and textures.
Make it personal
I love wearing jewellery that speaks to me. Be it because it has my children’s names engraved or because it reminds me of a special place/time in my life or because it’s full of symbolism and meaning. This is the key, in my opinion, to make combinations that are unique to you and represent who you are.
