Fall Jewelry Layering Styles To Spice Up The Season

WHY LAYER JEWELRY?  

You might ask, “Why do people layer jewelry? Is it the latest trend? How does it enhance my look?”

We do love a blinged out neckline, but it's not always easy to curate one that combines your favorite jewelry into a beautifully arranged stack. Layering necklaces is one of those fashion trends that people just won't let go of, regardless of what’s popular and the seasons that come to pass. They are the back-pocket trick you consistently see on runways, and even when they don't hit the mainstream, they're still a secret weapon to making any outfit look unforgettable.

 

This fall, one of the beauties of layering jewelry is the flexibility of being able to mix and match from different styles of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Your looks can change by simply adding a piece, removing, or even substituting one. This will help you alternate jewelry combinations, giving you more ways and occasions to wear them this fall.

Layering your necklaces, earrings, and bracelets have become an art that only a few have mastered. But when it comes to pieces of jewelry this fall season, remember that “more is more”! Feel free to build your own unique layered look this season, with pieces from the several collections of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets that Pandora’s Box has to offer!


HOW TO LAYER & SLAY YOUR STYLE WITH PANDORA’S BOX JEWELRY

Inspired by our jewelry collections, we've put together three techniques to help you layer multiple necklaces all at once. This allows them to be the focal point of your outfit by sticking with a more paired-up look.

TECHNIQUE # 1:  USE COMPLEMENTING PIECES

Each piece should complement one another with varying lengths to prevent getting twisted and entangled. You want your display to be flawless. See the picture below. Our Gold Ball Necklace With Rhinestone Pendant is perfect for layering with this technique.

 

TECHNIQUE# 2: USE THE “MIX N’ MATCH” GAME

Mixing matching pieces is another perfect way of layering, mixing the bolder necklaces  with the fine delicate ones is a great technique. Just having bold ones alone gives a chunky clumsy look, so why not try the mix n’ match game! Our "Tree Of Life" Pendant is a very beautiful piece that gives off the essence of life. It comes with three chains in gold or silver plating. It’s length allows it to be layered seamlessly with other shorter pieces.

 

TECHNIQUE# 3: USE SIMPLE PIECES

The simpler your necklaces are, the more creative and decorative you can be with your layering. Our Heart Chain Long Necklace With Austrian Crystals and Tree Of Lifelong Necklace are perfect examples of that clean and simple look.

 

Keep in mind, there are no hard rules when it comes to layering necklaces. Picking necklace pieces in different lengths and styles  is the only sure fire way to achieve that layered look, so have fun with it!

Happy Fall and Enjoy the Art of Layering!

3 Ways To Relax After A Long Day

Feeling tense and worn out is almost inevitable if you don't spend enough time relaxing.

Without taking time out for yourself, the stress gradually builds up to a breaking point.

Instead of getting frazzled and run-down, have a break and seek a few quick, tried and true pick-me-ups.

I’ve been trying these myself with amazing results 😀

#1 - Get outside in nature more often - The benefits of spending more time outside in nature have now been proven by science, so after a long day go for a nice stroll down at the nearest park or forest!

#2 - Be more mindful - This is really the art of allowing thoughts to arise without reacting to them.  Just simply sit in a comfy position, breathe and focus on your breath.  Whenever a thought pops up, just observe, don’t react.

#3 - Give more - This may sound ambiguous but trust me on this.  When you give a gift, a favor, your time, your attention...whatever it is, you will feel a deep sense of gratitude and happiness.

The Meaning of The Butterfly

Do you remember as a kid when you used to chase butterflies all over your garden?

You thought they were the prettiest and most magical little things.

Maybe you used to (attempt to) draw them, or even eat them!

And as you grew older your fascination deepened as you learned that the beautiful butterfly started off as an ugly little caterpillar!

What an amazing transformation 😀

It’s in this process that the meaning of the butterfly was formed in our culture and specifically jewelry.

The butterfly represents a symbol of transformation because of its impressive metamorphosis--from caterpillar to chrysalis and ultimately, the butterfly.

Butterflies also symbolize spring, a celebratory time of year, and embody the beauty of symmetry, pattern, color, and shape.

Maybe you haven’t connected the dots up until now...

But what an amazing thing to be reminded of!

If you want to spread the meaning of the butterfly or just simply be reminded of it...go get your hands on our stunning 3-Piece Butterfly Charm Bracelet.
