7 Dainty Necklaces You'll Want to Wear All the Time—And They're Perfect for Layering

The hardest part of layering your necklaces is arguably the best part—curating your own personalized mix. While the jewelry will vary based on your taste, we'd still suggest playing with a variety of different necklace styles, lengths, and mixed metals. While there's no one technique for achieving the perfect layered look, having a handful of stylish necklaces to choose from doesn't hurt and we picked our favorites to help start your collection—or to inspire you to build on to your current stack.
