Choose According to Length

The length of necklaces is a key consideration in creating a successful layered look. The idea is to play with the different lengths to create an effect of depth and visual interest.

  1. Mixing of Metals

    Combine gold necklaces and silver necklaces for a contemporary look. The trick is to choose a centerpiece in one material and add accents in the other.

    Introducing semi-precious stone necklaces with colorful elements or varying textures creates an interesting focal point and adds extra dimension to your layering.


Keeping these basics on length and materials in mind will lay the foundation for a balanced and aesthetically pleasing necklace set. The key is to experiment and find what resonates best with your personal style, while enjoying the quality and beauty of Aglaia's creations.

At Aglaia, we believe that every combination should tell a story, reflecting who you are and how you feel. Here's how to achieve that perfect balance between shapes, patterns, and colors.

The Balance of Forms and Patterns

The key to successful layering is finding a visual balance that draws the eye without overwhelming it. Play with geometric shapes, organic designs, and delicate patterns to create a cohesive yet captivating ensemble.

  1. Contrast and Complementarity

    Pair necklaces in various shapes, like a geometric pendant necklace with a delicate chain adorned with small beads. The goal is to create an interesting contrast while maintaining a certain visual unity.

  2. Subtle Repetition

    Use recurring patterns or design elements to tie your necklaces together. This could be a subtle floral pattern that appears on several pieces or a specific shape that repeats.


Color as a Point of Union

Colors play a crucial role in pairing necklaces, serving as a common thread between different pieces. Use color to create harmony or, conversely, to introduce an element of surprise.

  1. Harmonious Palette

    Select necklaces with gemstones or details in complementary hues. A cohesive color palette will visually unite the necklaces, creating an elegant and thoughtful look.

  2. Color Accents

    For a bolder effect, choose a necklace with a colorful pendant as a centerpiece and complement it with more understated necklaces. This helps draw attention to a specific point, while maintaining overall balance.

Practical Tips for Hoarding Necklaces

Mastering the art of accumulating your necklaces requires not only a refined aesthetic sense, but also the application of a few practical tips. At Aglaia, we understand the importance of ease and functionality in everyday jewelry wear. Here are tips to help you stack your necklaces with confidence and style.

Know When to Stop

One of the keys to successful necklace accumulation is knowing when the set is complete. Too many pieces can overwhelm your look and lose visual impact.

  1. Mirror Test

    Take a step back and look at your ensemble in the mirror. If removing one part makes the whole thing better, it's time to stop.

  2. Balance and Focus

    Make sure your buildup creates a harmonious focal point, without distracting from your face or expression of your personal style.


Maintenance and Storage

Proper care and storage of your necklaces is not only a matter of keeping them organized, but also of preserving their original beauty and luster, especially to avoid tarnishing which can alter the colors of metals. Tarnishing, a natural but undesirable phenomenon, can cause a color difference between your metal pieces, disrupting the harmony of your necklace accumulations. To counter this, it is crucial to store your jewelry in a dry place, away from humidity and preferably in individual compartments or on necklace holders that prevent direct contact between them. This reduces the risk of oxidation and maintains the color integrity of your metals, whether gold, silver or plated. Gentle, regular cleaning, following recommendations specific to each metal type, will also help maintain shine and prevent tarnishing, ensuring each necklace remains a valuable addition to your collection for years to come. At Aglaia, we are dedicated to offering you jewelry that retains its splendor, allowing you to accumulate it with confidence and elegance.

By applying these practical tips, stacking necklaces becomes not only a way to express your unique style, but also an enjoyable, hassle-free experience. Aglaia jewelry, designed with care and attention, deserves to be worn, maintained and appreciated at its true value.
