When it comes to jewellery, a gold necklace is an iconic staple. Whether you’re looking to make a statement or add a touch of sparkle to your look, a gold necklace for women can be the perfect accessory. But with so many styles, lengths, and designs to choose from, how do you know which gold necklace (one) is right for you?
That’s where this ultimate guide to styling your gold necklace comes in. This post will cover the different types of necklaces, how to layer them, and tips for styling the perfect gold necklace for any occasion.
NECKLACES FOR WOMEN
Gold necklaces have been used as fashion accessories since the beginning of human civilization. In ancient Egypt and the Far East, they were used to demonstrate status and wealth. Today, gold necklaces are worn for a variety of reasons, from making a fashion statement to expressing love and commitment.
Gold necklaces for women come in a wide range of styles, sizes and designs, from classic chains to bold statement pieces. Here’s a look at some of the different types of gold necklaces available today:
Chains: Chains are the classic style for a gold necklace. Chains come in several lengths, widths and thicknesses, from delicate thin links to thick chunky chains. You can also get chain necklaces with various pendants, such as initials.
Pendants: A pendant is an ornamental piece that hangs from a chain necklace. Pendants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from simple circles to elaborate designs. They can also be set with gems or diamonds for added sparkle.
Chokers: Chokers are short necklaces that fit snugly around the neck. They usually measure between 13 and 16 inches in length, and they make a great statement piece for evening wear.
Charm Necklaces: Charm necklaces are made up of several different charms linked together on a chain. Charms can be anything from hearts to coins to animals, and they make a great gift for someone special.
Lockets: A locket is a special type of necklace with a small compartment that opens to reveal a photograph or lock of hair. It is a great way to keep a cherished memento close at all times.
HOW TO LAYER YOUR NECKLACES
1. Ace Your Base

When you’re styling your gold necklace, it’s important to have a primary piece that will serve as the focal point of your layered look. Instead of layering several eye-catching designs, pick one main gold necklace to take centre stage and build the entire stack around it. That is an easy way to ensure your necklace combination won’t look busy and, instead, it’ll make an elegant and stylish statement.
For the ultimate style statement, shop for gold necklaces online and browse through our latest gold necklace designs. Pick the one that best fits your personality and your wardrobe, and create a stylish layered look with it.
2. Contrast With Texture

You can easily do this by pairing a lightweight gold necklace with a couple of delicate pendants, layer a thick gold chain with a few dainty ones, or combining a statement gold pearl necklace with minimalist station necklaces. Your options are endless!
3. Switch Up Your Lengths

Creating a layered necklace look is all about balance, so make sure to choose necklaces of different lengths. For example, if you have a lightweight gold necklace that’s 13 inches long, you can pair it with a 15-inch gold chain. That way, each piece will be stacked neatly without looking too cluttered.
Even better, our newly launched Bolo Chain is adjustable, so you can slide it to any length you want! Shop online for the latest gold necklace designs to find a unique combination that will perfectly fit your style.
4. Finish With A Special Touch!

When layering necklaces, a great way to add interest and style to your look is to finish with a focal point. This could be a gold necklace that features a bold design or bright colour, or it could be a unique gemstone or pearl necklace.
The idea is to create an eye-catching element that ties your layered look together. When shopping for the perfect focal point necklace, consider lightweight gold chains that won’t weigh down your outfit. Also, look at the latest gold necklace designs to find something that’s modern and stylish.
Whether you opt for a gold chain, a pearl necklace or something else entirely, make sure it reflects your style and fits in with your other necklaces.
LAYERING LOOKS WE LOVE
Trendy gold necklace stacks for inspiration!
1. Minimal Layers You’ll Never Take Off
Clean, sleek, and simple. These looks are perfect for rocking on the daily. Keep the textures uniform, and limit your layers to a maximum of three so the look doesn’t read messy.
The focal points shine but are subtle enough to match any outfit or occasion. We’ve chosen the evil eye motif and small personalisations like initials and birthstones to make the stack meaningful and unique.
2. Colourful Statements
Even though our childhood days may be past us, playful & colourful jewellery is slowly making a comeback.
Layer on coloured gemstones and or pair them with gold for a sophisticated edge. Remember, solid gold goes with everything.
Tip: Ensure that the colours you layer are complementary to each other and don’t clash. When in doubt, pair a neutral colour with a vivid one!
3. Glam It Up
When you’re feeling like turning things up a notch, a layered necklace can make a world of difference.
Go all out and pair different materials and stones, like diamonds with pearls, gold, or all three at once!
Tip: When pairing many textures at once, stick to one colour of metal (eg. yellow gold) to tie all of the necklaces together.
With that, you’re all set to style necklaces like a pro! Don’t forget to check out our necklace collection and recreate these looks.
