Layering Effect

This Spring and Summer, you’ll see a new trend in jewelry taking shape: delicate pieces, ideal for layering. The beauty in delicate jewelry is manyfold, but one of the best things about it is that it can easily be layered to create a more dramatic look.

The art of layering jewelry seems a bit daunting to most. Many customers ask, Do necklaces have to be different lengths? Do they have to be the same metal? Can I layer fine jewelry with costume? What creates the look I’m trying to achieve? There are no right or wrong answers to the questions aforementioned, except what feels right to YOU. What encompasses your style and what can you wear without feeling like it’s too much?

So how do you do go about layering your jewelry? We went to the expert herself–Elizabeth Newton, whose new, enewton jewelry line is taking the Hill Country by storm (and carried exclusively at Choices & More):

 Newton says, “Starting close to the face…I always like to think of this area, as the area that creates meaning. It is close to the heart and you don’t want it to take away from your face. Don’t have something too fussy, but create a look that works with your look. Necklaces at this length do not have to be different lengths. In fact, if they are the same length, they sometimes lay better and hit differently depending on what is being worn. Absolutely wear your diamond with something fun and flirty. There are no rules.

Longer layers…Depending on what you are wearing and how easy you want the outfit to be…meaning, when I am running around with my kids, I might wear one long necklace, because I don’t want too much to worry about getting caught on them. If I am going out to lunch, I may wear a statement necklace and a nice piece that either hits in the middle of the statement or a few inches longer. Long necklaces look great if you have different lengths. Don’t be afraid to wear 3 different lengths, just don’t wear more than one statement piece.”
