Trend Alert: Layered Large Statement Pendant Necklaces

If you’re searching for new necklace options besides your beloved choker, you may find layering large statement pendant necklaces with smaller ones as a great alternative option. Kim Kardashian sported the look at the 2016 MTV Video Music awards when she wore Kanye West’s triangular “Jesus piece” and coordinating smaller pendants — a jewelry line he created in collaboration with the infamous Jacob the Jeweler. The resulting look was nothing short of stunning. Of course, her glowing skin and gorgeous beachy glam hair sealed the deal for most of our hearts.

A few months later, Chrissy Teigen was styled by queen stylist, Monica Rose, for the 2016 American Music Awards with two vintage diamond starburst pendant necklaces beautifully layered over one another in a similar fashion. The play of scale from small to large or in Kim’s version from large to small is what makes this look so covetable. A sort of updated version of the tiny layered pendant look that has dominated fashion for some time.
