Style Inspiration: Layering Necklaces

gem gossip

Who else is caught in this heat wave?! We haven’t dropped below 90 degrees since Memorial Day and it sure has been putting a damper on so many things–including my jewelry choices. Rings and bracelets feel too hot to wear and wearing nothing but a necklace doesn’t seem too special.  Layering simple necklaces in a unique way is perfect for hot summer days without overdoing it.  The above inspiration photo is exactly what I am thinking–a very short, simple gold chain necklace, a slightly longer 18-20″ necklace with a spherical detail, and finally a very long chain with a long, sweeping pendant.  Here are three choice pieces that will give you this look:

This simple 16″ necklace has just enough of a casual look to be perfect for our inspiration. Designed by Ginette NY, an ID bar hangs from the chain and hangs close to your neck, all done in 14k yellow gold. Price: $275 and can be purchased at Eliza Page. arielgordon

Ariel Gordon‘s disco queen necklace is the perfect match for our inspiration look. The disco ball is set with 18 diamonds, all done in 14k yellow gold. Price: $850. Shout out to designer Ariel who is getting married in a couple weeks!!


This long, swinging necklace features a round rutilated quartz hugged by diamonds. The necklace is done in 18k yellow gold and is designed by Brooke Gregson. A very interesting design priced at $3550 from Broken English.
