Multilayer Necklaces

These are made using a combination of different lengths of necklaces. They usually start with a necklace that fits just above the collarbone and then graduate in length as further chains are added.

Multilayer necklaces complement lower-cut tops, allowing you to display the many layers, and are a popular choice for summer days or evening outfits.

Other stones, such as crystals or semi-precious stones, are also popular for evening or formal wear. They are usually crafted from pearls or crystals and the necklace sits just below the neck. It can be designed using similar-sized stones or pearls, or it can be graduated with smaller stones at the back leading to larger stones at the front.
