Sometimes in life, one is just not enough. When we find one thing we really love, we often want one, two or three more of something similar to make that first one more special. That's how we feel about our little layers. Layered necklaces are a look we have always embraced in our collection. Whether they are long layered necklaces, or that short layered - sometime neck mess - look, mixing and matching pieces from our collection has always been a key part of our Monica Rich Kosann style. When building one’s little layered look there are a few approaches. Gold layered necklaces can start with that one key 18k style that you literally wear every day. It is the piece that becomes part of your identity. Our diamond critters are a piece like that. Everyone on our MRK team wears one, and they all chose those pieces based on the design and the meaning on the necklace tag that reflects their individual life stories. Once a piece like the critter becomes a foundation, you can build your gold layered necklace look by adding a petite lock, a small charm necklace or even a mini pocketwatch key. How you combine this look is up to you. After all you are building your story, but if you want inspiration, we hope you can find it in our HOW TO WEAR IT pages. The same approach can be taken with our sterling silver layered necklaces. Pick the first piece you love, rinse and repeat! What we love about our sterling silver is that anyone can build a two or three necklace “little layer” look for well under $500. Another fun styling approach is to mix the gold and silver necklaces. The multi layered necklace can result in a unique two tone look that also allows the maximum versatility for the pieces in your jewelry box. The most important thing to remember with our little layers is “have fun”. After all, there are no rules!
