Things To Keep In Mind While Choosing Necklaces To Layer Together:

  • Check the neckline of your blouse whether it’s open or deep cut, embroidered or plain. It’s best to avoid layering too much with the heavily embroidered neckline to avoid making the look too busy.
  • Pick colour tones from your lehenga or saree and use those colours in different jewellery layers for a fun yet super coordinated and pretty look.
  • Layering Pearls, diamonds and polki with pastels is a great look for a bride who doesn’t like going heavy.
  • Play with different shapes and sizes of gemstones, textures and styles of necklaces to create your very own unique look.
  • Confused about layering? Satlada necklaces, pearl, emerald and ruby strings are simple yet safe pieces of layering with which you can almost never go wrong.
