After we posted our blog and video tutorial on how to level up your layered necklace look, several customers reached out asking for MORE blog posts on the same topic. And since we happen to think that layering necklaces is a ton of fun — not to mention a fantastic fit for Bloom’s signature styles! — we are happy to oblige.
In this post, we’ll show you how to layer some of the Bloom favorites you may already have in your collection with some of our new fall-inspired pieces. To keep things fresh, beyond layering necklaces, we’ve also built you a truly splendid stack of bracelets. Finally, to celebrate the upcoming change of season, we’re featuring some lush, on-trend fall colors. After all, who doesn’t love the colors of autumn? The rich golds, reds, rusts, and browns of the fall leaves. The aspen leaves quivering in the wind. The gold-toned landscapes and sunsets that seem to melt into the horizon. So, without further ado…
How to Layer Necklaces and Stack Bracelets: Principles in Practice
As we explained in our last blog, whether you’re layering necklaces or stacking bracelets, it’s fundamentally about striving for balance and the right amount of breathing room. The overall goal is to find a harmonious mix of colors, sizes, textures, and chain and bracelet weights and styles. We also talked about starting with a great base outfit, getting creative with the pieces you love — and not overdoing it.
But it’s always easier to show rather than tell. So with that in mind, we’ve put together a layered look for fall that shows these principles in practice.
What do you see in this photo? How about that we’ve picked one spectacular statement necklace to work around as a centerpiece? That we’ve balanced the gold tones of the chains with the rich reddish-brown of the Hessonite gemstones? That the rawness of the Citrine pendant serves as a pretty stellar counterpoint to the sophistication of the paperclip and curb chains? That the model’s knockout gold blazer is softened by a soft chambray shirt with a collar that’s just begging for layered necklaces?
How about this photo? What do you see? Do you see how we’ve alternated the weights, widths, colors, and textures of the model’s bracelet stack so that it feels substantial without being overwhelming? That the most delicate bracelets are placed at the wrist, and the wider bracelets are placed further up the arm? That the saffron leather in the channel bracelets echoes the incredible gold of that coat? That the leather and canvas pieces are interspersed among the simpler gold bangles? That we’ve strived to create an overall layered look that’s somehow both timeless and absolutely of-the-moment?
Hey, you’re getting it now! The art of layering necklaces and stacking bracelets isn’t that complicated if you can teach yourself to see the whole picture, and to do some thoughtful editing as you build your look. And to go a level deeper, we’ve included links to each piece below, letting you take a closer look at the different pieces that go into making Bloom’s fall look one for the memory books.
Bloom’s Layered Look for Fall: How to Layer Necklaces
From top to bottom, here are the four stunning layering necklaces that we’ve used to create Bloom’s layered look for fall…
Our Gold Paperclip Duo Layering Necklace is one of Bloom’s signature layering necklaces. Bringing together both of our best-selling paperclip chains, this elegant and versatile 14K Gold necklace can be worn at lengths of up to 19”.
NEW!!! Bloom’s Strung Hessonite Choker capitalizes on the ongoing choker trend to highlight these gorgeous Hessonite rondelle gemstones. While Bloom’s other chokers feature Pave Diamond pendants, we decided to keep this one unadorned, letting the Hessonite speak for itself.
Hessonite Strung Choker$291.00
Bloom’s Curb Signature Layering Necklace, wearable at lengths of up to 16.5”, is another timeless customer favorite. This necklace offers a graceful way to embrace the heavy metal chain trend.

NEW!!! Finally, our Raw Citrine Large Paperclip Necklace completes Bloom’s layered necklace look for fall with a truly stunning statement necklace. How can you not fall deeply in love with this Raw Citrine pendant and 14K Gold paperclip chain? Just remember: When it comes to layering necklaces, it’s best to limit yourself to ONE glorious statement necklace against a backdrop of necklaces that have slightly less to say.[photo + link needed]
