The ABCs of Jewellery Stacking

Ready to learn the jewellery layering secrets of the style insiders? The obsession for stacking is showing no signs of slowing down, and thanks to our gold-plated and sterling silver collection of layerable earrings, necklaces and bracelets there’s never been a better time to get to grips with the ABCs of stacking.

From minimal ear stacks to layering necklace lengths and mixing and matching chains; learn how to make effortless stacking part of your everyday look.

A is for Arm Stacks

From boho beads to the classic tennis chain, the bracelet is a true stacking chameleon. We love mixing sterling silver with premium gold-plated designs from the Z collection for a look that can be dressed up or down for every occasion.

B is for Birthstones

A healing stone or birthstone is the perfect way to add extra meaning to your stack. Explore our semi-precious stones to incorporate a personal twist into your stacks that you can keep close at all times.

C is for Chains

Curating the perfect chain combination is the key to a necklace stack of your dreams. From snake chains to chunkier links, ropes and fine chains, start with two or three lightweight chains, and mix with a maximum of one or two heavyweight styles to keep your necklace stack balanced and clean.

Don’t forget to vary lengths with short, midi and maxi-length chains.  To draw the eye and bring dimension to your stack, add talismans, initials, discs or micro-pendants. Or make it totally your own with an initial necklace.

D is for Dainty Stacks

A natural companion to the Clean Girl Aesthetic trend sweeping TikTok, the dainty stack is your best friend when it comes to bringing polish to smart casual styling.

To achieve a more minimal aesthetic in your stack, stick exclusively to either sterling silver or real 14ct gold-plated. Plain studs, hoops, bracelets and chains from our Z and Sterling Silver range are made to be layered up together for a daintier look, while moments of detail can be added with a small motif like a minimal shell pendant or flower stud.

E is for Ear Stacking

Hoop earrings are high on the must-buy list, but when it comes to layering up several in one go, opt for mini huggies in slim and slender shapes to balance out your ears.

A plain gold or silver hoop makes instantly makes sparkling studs more daytime friendly (and transitions easily to evenings). Chunky gold drop-styles like these ones have soared to the top of the trend list, and look great paired up with plain studs, a crisp white shirt and your favourite jeans.

F is for Flawless Fingers

We can’t get enough of a stacking ring set (especially these). Mix and match to your hearts (and hands) desire; when it comes to ring stacking more is more and texture, shapes and gems are the key to layering up a more eclectic look.

Micro-gems and skinny rings look great stacked next to each other if you opt for several rings on one finger – we love pearls, beads and cubic zirconia for a touch of sparkle. After a more minimal look? Try combining plain gold or silver rings with twisted rope texture rings or asymmetric hammered metals for laidback luxe.
