Layering in fashion is not just limited to clothing, you can also stack or layer your jewelry if you wish. Layered necklaces are one of our favorite trends when it comes to fashion and we’re beyond excited to hear about their revival. you can think of this trend as one of the easiest to follow and we would agree with you, up to a point. There is absolutely no denying that layered necklaces around your neck give you a little more confidence and make you feel like you are on top of your fashion game. however, layered necklaces come with their own set of problems. the most common problem is that the chains tend to get tangled up with each other, which is never fun. To find out how to layer necklaces without getting them all tangled up, we here at Bixler put together the best tips just for you!
layered necklace tip #1: long & short
When layering necklaces, it’s important to choose chains of different lengths. when you wear that short & long necklace combo, you will not only look great but also prevent the two chains from tangling. You can also wear more than 2 necklaces, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to layered necklaces. You may not have necklaces of different lengths, but don’t worry, you can simply get necklace extenders from a nearby jewelry store to change their lengths with ease. This is one of the easiest ways to keep your necklaces from getting tangled up.

tip #2 for layering necklaces without tangling them: different weights
just like the lengths, you can always mix chains and pendants of different weights. wear a light chain and layer it with a heavy chain or a chain that has a heavy pendant or charm on it. the different weights of the chains will make sure each chain stays in place and doesn’t get tangled up with the other.
#3 – necklace unraveler
The most convenient way to keep necklaces in place is to use a necklace detangler. you just have to buy these and then attach your chains to their clasps and voila! Your necklaces will stay in place as the detangler will keep each chain away from the other, thus preventing the chains from tangling. The necklace detangler comes in a variety of styles, giving you plenty of options to choose from. If going to a jewelry store is too much for you, you can easily get one online too!
#4 – mix strings
Another very helpful tip is to use different chains when layering necklaces. By different chains, we mean chains made of different materials or in different styles. For example, one could be a snake chain, a box, and the other could be a bead chain or even a rope chain. when you use different types of chains, they will most likely not get tangled up with each other due to their different textures.
#5 – make use of your thicker strings
Thinner strings are more likely to snap and tangle with each other. but that’s no reason to be disappointed, this just gives you a chance to experiment with the ‘chunky’ necklaces you have. Layer them up and you won’t be disappointed. use your thick chains or even the pearl necklaces you own to put together a dazzling look and avoid tangles at the same time.
#6: follow the most basic layering rule
The most basic but important rule when it comes to layering necklaces without tangling is to layer them in the “right order”. It’s not always right to start layering with the shortest necklace first, but it’s always best if you start with the thinnest chain first. This way the chain will not get tangled up with other thicker necklaces.
#7 – separate them
the more space between each collar, the better it is. having space between each string will automatically make it impossible for the strings to wrap around each other. we suggest you use a spacer on longer necklaces or chains to ensure each stays away from the other. this can also be done by mixing strings of different lengths.
#8 – keep them tight
The tighter your necklace chains are, the less chance they have of getting tangled. for this reason, you can always go for a wrap around necklace or choker. It would give you the look of layered necklaces and make you look cooler. You can also get a set of layering necklaces already available from the jewelry store to save yourself the hassle of layering your own necklaces. the choice is yours!
