Necklaces with meaning: How to create a layered look

Spiritual necklaces are a great way to add meaningful additions to any look, and you don’t have to limit yourself to one symbolic piece. If you like to wear multiple necklaces, you can layer them to create a look with multiple meanings that support intention in your daily life.

Learn how to create a layered look with your spiritual necklaces for deeper meaning.


Choose different symbols and designs


To create a layered look with your spiritual necklaces, choose different symbols and designs, as wearing several necklaces with the same symbol will not bring much meaning to your look. Try combining two meanings such as chakra alignment and the manifestation of new beginnings by wearing a chakra necklace and a lotus flower necklace.


Choose necklaces of different lengths


When you wear spiritual necklaces of the same length, they can become tangled and difficult to see. To avoid this, choose different lengths of chain so that each pendant has enough space to show its symbolism without being obscured by the other. Varying the chain sizes will allow each piece to show its beauty and symbolism. You can wear two necklaces, choosing one short and one medium length necklace or one medium length and one long necklace. You can also choose to wear three necklaces, one short, one medium length and one long.


Use the same metals or combine them – it’s up to you!


For the perfect layered look, you can wear the same type of metal or, if you prefer to create a bold, contrasting look, mix metals, such as sterling silver and gold plating.


Highlight one piece


Use a necklace that appeals to you in particular to make it stand out from the rest. This necklace will attract attention because of its large size, unique design or natural stones. You can combine this necklace with simpler necklaces to draw the eye to that one piece that holds a special place in your heart.


Add healing with natural stones


Natural stones bring color, inspiration and healing to your symbolic jewelry. Many of our jewelry pieces incorporate natural healing stones, such as chakra necklaces, which include many balancing stones in a single necklace.

Add your personal touch


Remember there are no rules when it comes to layering necklaces, it all depends on what your heart and intuition tells you to wear. Wear mandala and star necklaces to represent peace and guidance. If you are attracted to chakra and evil eye necklaces, you will represent alignment and protection in your life. It’s all up to you and what you feel like wearing.


Get inspired


Think about the meaning of the jewelry you wear, sometimes all you need is a little inspiration for your look. For wisdom and guidance combine elephant and star necklaces or for protection and peace wear moon and mandala necklaces.


Try multiple combinations


To find the necklaces that best suit your current mood, try several different looks. Make combinations of symbols or natural stones that have a special meaning for you. There are many ways to combine your necklaces to create deeper meanings, you’ll never know which mix will call to you the most that day until you try it on and if something doesn’t quite work for you you can try pairing your symbolic necklaces with different outfits.

Hopefully these tips will help you create a layered look with your spiritual necklaces and add more intention and meaning to your looks! Remember, the most important thing is to follow your intuition and choose symbols and designs that resonate with you.
