The lovely Dog Tag and Pavé Dog Tag are favorites for making your layers personal. Engrave initials or add a graphic engraving, such as an image, logo or fingerprint, to the charm. The 1mm Cable Chain is the perfect dainty chain to pair with our must-have layering favorite: the Herringbone Chain. (Chains and charms sold separately).


 Every dream starts with a little seed of hope. This was the inspiration behind our Seed Collection and the necklaces layer perfectly together. We love the offset interest of the Seed Arc Necklace combined with the Seed Necklace and the unique shape of the Seed Lariat. This combination is organized yet eclectic as the balance of the three unique designs tells a consistent layering story. 


For a pop of color, the Mini Rose Cut Birthstone Necklace (shown in aquamarine) is a modern take on a vintage look. Combined with the Long Link Chain and Gather Chain, the textures make for interesting necklace layers. The Gather Chain is an absolute favorite this season and it’s available in four lengths -- perfect for major sparkle and adding depth to your look.


The Large Hammered Cross charm with a white diamond bail on the Wheat Chain features intricate and intertwined teardrop-shaped links that are perfectly paired with the Gather Chain. The cross can be personalized with engraving to the back of the charm. Both of the chain necklace options are available in multiple lengths for different looks and combinations. 


The Medallion Signet Necklace is a beautiful way to commemorate a loved one or wear a sentiment that’s close to your heart. Engrave it with a name or initials and pair with the classic simplicity of the 3mm Curb Chain. This duo has major shine. A summer combination that’s comfortable and suitable for any everyday look.


For a full-on collected and eccentric look, we’re loving the Large Hammered Cross with a white diamond bail on the Wheat Chain. More is more when it comes to necklace layers so we’re adding the Small Hammered Cross with white diamond bail on the 1mm Cable Chain, the Long Link Chain and the Pavé ID Necklace (shown with ruby). This is a fearless and meaningful combination -- just like you. The bails and pavé lettering options are also available in white diamond, ruby, blue sapphire, yellow sapphire or green tsavorite -- giving you endless color combinations.
