gold coin necklaces

When I was in Anguilla back in July, two of the fabulous fashionistas on the trip, Helena and Sai, had this layered necklace game that I was totally enthralled with.

When it comes to jewelry, I go through phases. I used to wear tons of bracelets and no necklaces. Later I fell in love with all things statement necklace. Then I became earring-addicted and never wore bracelets. And now I’m having a delicate necklace moment. My relationship with jewelry is all over the place.

I came home from that trip and started going through all of my necklaces, looking for what I could layer. You guys know I love Dana Seng Jewelry (shared in my FAQ and here), so I combined her pieces with a new Etsy shop I discovered and loveSimple Dainty Jewelry.  She’s actually based in San Francisco!

Other shops I love for delicate pieces are Katie Dean Jewelry and Adornmonde.  Below I’m sharing some of my favorite necklaces for layering (and a great coin necklace is most definitely a must).

AND before I forget! I want to answer a FAQ from you guys –

How do you keep them from tangling?

Sadly the answer is that there is no secret. I sleep and shower in most of these so I simply untangle them in the morning (gently!), and usually that’s enough to get me through the day.

Below are some necklaces that I think would look fabulous layered up! I don’t think they all have to layer up perfectly. You can see in these photos that two of the necklaces are similar lengths… so what? I switch them out and sometimes I go longer – you do you. Make it your own!

I’d love to hear if you are a layered necklace kind of girl. Maybe you’re a bracelet or earring lover – gimme the scoop!

Thanks so much for reading – XO –

  1. I miss the piles of Yurman on bloggers’ wrists… 🙁 It seems like that was so popular for years but just in the past few months I am seeing it less and less. Do you think that layered cable bracelet look is now passe?

  2. I love layering simple jewelry- necklaces and stacking rings, too! Since I mostly wear rose gold, I have a hard time finding simple necklaces. How do you feel about mixing metals?

  3. I go through lots of phases with my jewelry too, but I love layered necklaces the most! It just has a really cool carfree, yet chic vibe to it. Love your necklaces here!

  4. Super cute, I actually was the same way with jewelry in the past but lately I’ve been wanting to have signature jewelry that I always turn to. Necklaces layered, simple hoops, and a stack of bracelets. I’m springing for a Cèline “L” to get started. Love your picks!

  5. So pretty! These a definitely having a moment and I am not mad! Also have been wracking my brain trying to think of how I can invent something to keep them tangle free!

  6. These are beautiful pieces and I love how they compliment each other. I don’t really wear a lot of jewelry but I appreciate the simple pieces like these ones that bring it! It definitely adds character to any look.
