We’re endlessly falling into an IG hole while studying the chic and sentimental feels coming from charm necklaces. Whether they’re on vacationing celebs or red-carpet stars, layered necklaces hung with meaningful little treasures—and if we’re lucky, diamonds—are as entrancing to us as jangled keys are to a baby. Here are our tips for starting your own stack.
Choose A Sturdy Chain
Large-link chains look contemporary and are sturdy enough to hang all the charms you’d like.
Select A Charm Holder
These simple rings and connectors are as much fun to collect as the charms that hang from them. User’s note: It’s cooler when you mix and match metals and enamels.
Add A Vintage Vibe
Include a family heirloom in your stack or rotate in newly purchased treasures that have a timeless feel.
Layer In A Medallion (or Three)
Special love tokens, good-luck charms and totems of personal achievement are best kept hanging right next to your heart.
