The Art of Layering: How to Mix and Match Jewelry Like a Pro

Most likely you've heard of the layering trend by now. However, it applies not only to clothing, but also to jewelry.

At the moment, fashion is so loyal that it allows us to express ourselves as boldly as possible and mix things that were previously considered incompatible. Nevertheless, to make each of your jewelry combinations really hit the mark, there are a few rules that you need to follow. They will help you look stylish.

How to mix and match jewelry: basic ideas

Jewelry layering is a real art. However, by understanding its main ideas, you can easily learn how to do it.

Combination of lengths.

The mix of lengths is one of the fundamental principles of layering. In terms of jewelry, this mostly applies to necklaces and earrings.

So, when choosing several chains for your neck, make sure that they are of different lengths. For example, one choker and one medium-length chain, alternatively, it is possible to wear three necklaces that will proportionally hang down to the solar plexus.

In the case of jewelry for ears, you can choose several hoop earrings of different diameters. Also, as one more option, you can combine stud earrings with longer ones with a chain. In a word, there are really a lot of options.

The only thing you need to pay attention to is that you should not choose bulky jewelry for your set. It's better to mix minimalistic positions to make it look organic.

In the Orxata catalog there is a Forma transforming necklace, which can replace several necklaces at once and create the desired layering effect. Here are a few ways how you can wear it:

As for the trendy combination of earrings, we also have what to offer. This is our Bola set, which includes hoop earrings and one cuff of a smaller diameter:

One accent in the outfit

Another important recommendation for those who want to experiment with layering is to make only one accent. It means that you don't need to indulge in a flight of fancy and layer earrings, rings, and chains. Your outfit shouldn't be burdened with too many elements. Choose one part of your body that you want to emphasize and go for it!

Mix of materials

A lot of people are concerned about whether it is acceptable to combine gold and silver in one look, and if so, how to do it.

Well, at the moment, a mix of different precious materials is considered quite acceptable. Besides, it can look really stylish. However, it is better not to choose accessories from more than two types of metal within the same look. Also, it is worth making one of the metals more accentuated, while the other one will look like a subtle inclusion in the set. For example, it is absolutely normal to add a third silver necklace to a set of the two gold ones. This way, your outfit will look completely fresh.


Asymmetry can make any look more interesting. Sometimes, this technique also helps to make an accent. In order to explain it better, let us give you some examples.

Example 1: You can wear a ring on your right hand and two thin rings on one finger on your left. Is it asymmetrical? - Yes? Is it accentuated? - Depending on the set of jewelry.

Example 2: You complimented your outfit with a thin necklace and bracelet and also chose for it our asymmetrical Bola set. In this case, this asymmetry will be the main accent of your combination.
