JEWELLERY LAYERING AND STACKING - MAY 2024 NEWS

Mastering the Art of Jewellery Layering and Stacking 

In the fashion world there is a season for every look and the same can be said for jewellery. Whether looking to wear a chunky watch, a pair of drop earrings or a cuff bracelet, we all look to trends to tell us what is and isn’t fashionable.

At the moment, the notion of layering and stacking jewellery is making a comeback. While not a new practice, the idea behind these particular accessorising trends is to infuse looks with statement pieces that speak to both style and personality.

A vessel for personal expression and versatility in styling, layered jewellery affords you the opportunity to use pieces from J Farren-Price’s exquisite collection to experiment with different colours and styles to create a look that is completely unique to you. 

The Philosophy Behind Layering and Stacking

Prevalent in African, Indian and Asian cultures for centuries, stacked jewellery in the West was born out of a 1920s fashion movement. Seen as a way to embrace the decade known as the Roaring Twenties, this fashion trend was symbolic of a time of great opulence. 

Popularised again in the 1970s before fading in the wake of the 1990s minimalist movement, jewellery stacking is now well and truly back thanks to major fashion houses and global superstars like Harry Styles promoting the trend.

While this trend has been transient, it continues to come back en vogue for its inherent ability to double as a storytelling device. Rather than a piece of metal that adorns a finger, ear, wrist or neck, stack jewellery works together to create an expressive look. 

Transcending seasonal styles, stacked jewellery also refutes the notion that jewellery should only be worn on special occasions. Instead, layering the right pieces can help to both bring together a casual outfit and add another touch of sparkle to formal attire.

With little rules surrounding how to stack jewellery pieces, there is a sense of timeless appeal to these fashion jewellery trends. With room to experiment, self expression can come to the fore and that’s something that never goes out of style.

How to Layer Like An Expert 

When it comes to jewellery layering and stacking, you can have fun with everything from necklaces and bracelets to earrings and rings. The best thing to keep in mind before mixing and matching is to always look for one statement piece.

With necklaces, think of a statement piece as an anchor to the stack. This could mean that you play with the length of a particular piece so that it sits right in the middle of your neck and you then layer pieces above and below. You could also employ a showstopper like the Roberto Coin 'Princess Flower' necklace and build around the contrasting colours. 

 

The earlobes double as a playground for those looking to experiment with the notion of stacked jewellery. Asymmetry really comes to the fore here. You can place different earrings on both ears or utilise different lengths such as pairing the Argyle Ellipse Earrings with some delicate studs lining the outer lobe.

Jewellery layering with rings is incredibly exciting because you have ten different fingers to play with. You might choose to put one ring on each finger or alternate fingers and have a couple of rings on each digit. With layered rings, you can add an extra pop of dimension by mixing thinner and thicker bands. For chunky rings, look no further than the ‘Xpandable’ range from Picchiotti

Bracelets are some of the best jewellery pieces to stack, simply because you have so much room to work with. Mixing both metals and textures, you can create a moveable piece of artwork on your arm that looks both cohesive and entirely unique to you. Roberto Demeglio has a range of stunning stretch bracelets that can help you nail your layering.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Jewellery Layering and Stacking 

While there are no steadfast rules when it comes to jewellery stacking, there are best practices you should follow and common mistakes to avoid altogether. This way, you can embody a cohesive, aesthetically pleasing look without emulating a jewellery rack. 

Jewellery layering and stacking best practices:

  • Always choose a piece that anchors the look by either being a statement piece or an accessory that highlights the overall theme 
  • Look to create stacks by opting for jewellery pieces that have different lengths and widths 
  • Choose pieces that bring something new to the stack rather than something that looks repetitive 

Common jewellery layering and stacking mistakes:

  • When embracing this trend, only stack and layer one accessory, otherwise the overall look might seem unbalanced 
  • If stacking rings, try to have a neutral nail polish as brightly coloured nails may clash with colour embellishments or certain metals used in some rings 
  • Don’t try and stack multiple chunky bracelets, for a more natural look, opt for one chunky piece with slimmer pieces layered around it
