How to Layer Pearl Necklaces?

Pearl necklaces are a girl’s best friend. Gone are the days when we associated pearls with our grandmas. Today’s pearl necklaces are a celebrity-approved trend, beloved by stars like Rihanna, Zendaya, and Harry Styles. Wearing layered pearl necklaces is a quirky way to take this timeless jewelry staple and make it feel contemporary.

The art of layering pearl necklaces is all about embracing the mentality that “more is more”. Pearl necklaces are a bridal jewelry staple but also appropriate for everyday wear. They’re easy to wear as an everyday piece or style for special occasions. Freshwater pearl necklaces are an elegant staple that should be in everyone’s jewelry box.

We’re sharing our favorite ways to layer pearl necklaces and how to avoid your necklaces tangling when wearing them together.


Layer Pearl Necklaces Without Tangles

Freshwater pearls symbolize loyalty, shared memories, and integrity, making them the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one. While these pearls are elegant and dainty, they can become a problem when they get tangled with other necklaces.

Before you can start layering pearl necklaces, you want to learn how to keep your necklaces separated to avoid tangling and damage. It can take a little trial and error to find the best solution, but there are several tips you can try to keep your chains secure.

Layer your pearl necklaces by length and choose different lengths to prevent them from overlapping. Three necklaces are usually the ideal amount for layering, with one necklace taking center stage. Our ‘Sparkling Eyes’ pearl necklace is an elegant choice to layer with smaller pendants and delicate chains.
