how to: layer jewelry

Layering is one of our favorite trends at Mystique. Who doesn’t want to load up on beautiful sparkly jewelry? It is definitely an exciting way to accent your look. But, the key is knowing what you are doing and when to stop. An armful of bangles and bracelets means you should probably think minimal with your necklaces and earrings. Here are some of our favorite layered looks combining necklaces, bracelets and rings.

Layer up your necklaces with a mix of varied shapes, lengths and mixed metals. Think lightweight strands that won’t make you look weighed down. Pick one necklace that stands out, such as the oxidized sterling silver and diamond starburst from The Mystique Collection.

For bracelets, we are loving the combination of dainty pieces mixed with a splash of color. Don’t be afraid to mix yellow gold and white gold either. The combination makes for a stunning display on your wrist.

Rings are another great way to spice up your look by layering. It’s okay to wear more than just your engagement ring, or other must have rings. Include some bold gemstones or statement rings that showcase your personality and style.
