Layer it on
By Linda Miller
| Published: December 6, 2010
Layering jewelry continues to be one of the season's hottest looks. Just toss on a few necklaces or bracelets, and you're ready to face the world in style, right?
Not so fast. I've seen women who look like a tangled mess, chains twisted and turned so much that it's difficult to even tell they're necklaces. Or they've chosen to layer necklaces that are all the same metal or color, which lacks interest and creativity.
Jewelry designer Robindira Unsworth, whose globally inspired collection is available in more than 200 high-end and specialty boutiques, shares her do's and don'ts of layering jewelry.
• Do combine different textures. Pair delicate chains, pearls and natural stones such as agate and quartz with leather for an organic vibe.
• Do wear necklaces in a variety of lengths for added depth and interest. Start with a short chain adorned with a delicate charm, then add a strand of hammered metal beads and finish with a long necklace embellished with colored stones.
• Do mix new and old. Combine stackable rings and bangles so they convey your own style. Try multiple variations to make your jewelry wardrobe work for you.
• Don't be afraid to combine metals. Mix and match yellow gold, silver, white gold and oxidized silver to make stones and crystals stand out for a modern feel with a bit of an edge.
• Don't be too matchy-matchy. Add a surprising layer or a pop of color for an unexpected look.
• Don't hesitate to experiment. Jewelry is an expression of your personal style. The more you experiment, the more comfortable you are with creating your own look.
