Want to wear all of your animal jewellery at once? So do we! Luckily, stacking or layering jewellery is a hot trend. So, don’t get stuck wearing that one penguin necklace you’re obsessed with. Instead, pair it with something that perhaps gets forgotten at the back of your jewellery box.
Stacking your animal jewellery is another way of standing out from the crowd. But if you’re unsure how to do it and make it look effortless, let’s show you how.
Layering up your animal necklaces is one of the simplest ways to show your style. After all, there’s a lot of space to work with, especially if you’re wearing a scoop or strapless neckline. But what’s the best way to stack necklaces?
You want a shorter necklace and a longer one; it’s that simple. But you don’t have to stop there. If you have a choker, a short chain, and a long one, throw them all on! The key here is to give each necklace space. You don’t want them on top of each other.
Oh, and don’t feel you need to keep your animals the same. For example, turtles and penguins can work together. So why not try our longer Gold Turtle Necklace with our shorter Penguin and Igloo Necklace?
When it comes to stacking animal rings, there are a few ways to do it. First, you can keep it simple, with delicate rings layered up. Or, go wild and stack bold, statement rings for a more dramatic look.
But perhaps you want a happy medium. In that case, mix and match simple rings with more ‘out there’ pieces. A great way to do this is with our statement Turtle Love Ring and our simple Tranquility Wave Ring.
No matter what your style is, layering rings gives you a lot of options. Rings on every finger will, of course, make a big statement. But two or three carefully chosen rings can do the same.
The beauty of stacking animal rings is you can tell a different story on each finger.
Bracelets have to be the easiest jewellery pieces to stack! There are no rules, so express yourself however you want to, and we promise it will look effortless.
If you love charm bracelets, like our Ocean Charms Bracelet, don’t think that it’s bold enough on its own. Instead, stack it with smaller bracelets like our Ocean Turtle.
Like stacking rings, you can go all out and fashion busy bracelets, simple bracelets, or a mix and match of both. You can't go wrong no matter how you want to stack your animal bracelets, so think outside the box and have fun.
Nothing screams summer and festival vibes more than a cute anklet. But why be subtle with them? Layering anklets is the way to go to gain compliments on your style. So for the loud and proud of you, layer chunky anklets. Or, if you prefer to keep things a little more understated, choose daintier options.
Either way, our Butterfly Charm Anklet is a great place to start as it’s a 2-in-1 to get you stacked up immediately. Then, add our Beaded Turtle Anklet if you want to draw more attention.
Rules for Stacking Your Animal Jewellery
Jewellery trends are constantly changing, but there are a few things to remember when stacking your animal jewellery.
Mix It Up
Layering jewellery is all about creating something interesting to look at. You want to make a statement, even if it’s subtle. So, mix and match different shapes and sizes, and if you’re stacking necklaces, mix up the lengths.
As previously mentioned, don’t believe you have to choose one animal and only wear that jewellery. The different shapes of different animals can create a gorgeous look.
Likewise, pairing a large, chunky piece of jewellery with a dainty piece automatically balances your look.
It’s All About Balance
You don’t want only big and bold pieces. Well, maybe you do, but it could look chaotic. So, your best bet is to balance the lengths of necklaces and the sizes of other stacked jewellery.
Like the previous point, mix and match, but try not to overdo it.
Use the Same Metals
Is this a hard and fast rule? Absolutely not. Do trends change like the wind when it comes to mixing or not mixing metals? You bet! But if you’re not yet a seasoned pro at stacking your animal jewellery, it’s best to stick to one metal.
You love animal jewellery, so you’re already fun in our eyes. But stacking and layering jewellery is about having fun and expressing who you are. So don’t be afraid to grab your penguin jewellery and wear multiple pieces at once.
