When it comes to stacking jewellery, more is more. Forget minimalism and pile on the bling with necklaces, bracelets and rings.

Before attempting anything, however, it is important to know that stacking jewellery is an art within itself.

We’re not talking about throwing on an everyday watch, but rather mastering the layering of your jewellery. Whether it is necklaces, bracelets or rings, there are many ways to wear this trend.

Stacking and layering allows you to tell your own story through your jewellery and to create your own personal expression of style.

To avoid overdoing this look, though, here are a few tips and tricks to help you on your journey.


Take a leaf from Rihanna’s Insta feed @Badgirlriri:

In general when it comes to necklaces:

  • Begin by using what you already have in your closet. Mix and match these necklaces to make it more personal.
  • Layer your necklaces in accordance to length (shortest to longest), with the longest necklace falling underneath, ending with the shortest on top.
  • Add texture by mixing metals, from gold chains to beaded necklaces.
  • Although “more is better”, take note of exactly how many necklaces you are layering. The ideal look ranges from two to a maximum of five.
  • Wear small earrings when you layer your necklaces to create balance.


Kylie Jenner is one celeb who knows how to style her arm candy:

Bracelets are a versatile item of jewellery:

  • When it comes to style, try mixing your vintage and new bracelets to develop your individual aesthetic.
  • Alternate between pairing your hard bangles with soft chain link bracelets and your wide cuffs with narrow cuffs.
  • When layering charm bracelets, ensure that each bracelet has no more than three charms to prevent it from feeling too heavy.
  • Don’t forget to play around with different materials: woven, metallic, beaded, and others.


Taylor Swift’s style is never too much, she always keeps it elegant:

When it comes to rings, there are many options:

  • Always try to keep the minimum number for ring stacking to three, although two can work if they are statement pieces. Also, stop stacking when your knuckle is unable to bend. You do want to be able to use your hands!
  • Try blending textures, widths, metals and stones.
  • Mix and match your vintage and new rings to amplify the visual appeal.

Your jewellery style

Layering and stacking is one of the most personal ways to wear jewellery.

By simply putting a few items together – which you might already have in your jewellery box – you are able to create a new style. You can also end up with a fuller, bigger look.

Pieces you have had tucked away may get an entirely new cycle of wear when layered or stacked.
