Jewellery stacking is not a new art form — in the past few years, it has become a key trend amidst an increased interest in layering. However, in recent seasons, stacking same-toned pieces has been replaced by a more eclectic mélange.

Mixing metals in jewellery has always been thought of as a fashion faux pas, but like the outdated fashion rule of never matching denim with denim, avoiding silver jewellery with gold has become a style myth. Jewellery is personal, and there are no rules about how you should wear it. Its ability to elevate a basic outfit or enhance a statement piece is an irreplaceable aspect of layering. Now, renowned jewellery maisons like Cartier, Tiffany and Bvlgari offer consumers a chance to level up their outfits through their fine jewellery lines. With entry-level price points, these collections cater to jewellery fans of a younger age. One of the more apparent benefits of owning one of these pieces is that it comes with the same level of craftsmanship and high-quality materials as all the other pieces under the maisons. However, it is also created with flexibility and timelessness; with both gold and silver pieces in the collections, it creates the perfect opportunity for jewellery users to be creative and experimental in their layering or stacking endeavour.

Since its launch in 2014, the Tiffany T collection has attained iconic status and become a chic symbol of style. With designs ranging from subtle to bold and delicate to daring, each versatile and timeless piece is as much a talisman of individuality as a personal expression of style. The latest evolution of the iconic Tiffany T collection, Tiffany T1, celebrates the connection between accessories and ourselves. It comes in various metal tones: rose gold, gold and silver — and is the perfect collection for mastering the art of jewellery stacking.

Created to be stackable, the Tiffany T collection is filled with simple yet elegant pieces, and pairing them with each other would create an effortless, fashionable look. For example, the classic Tiffany T Square Bracelets are often paired with their bangles to fit the cool and contemporary modern woman.

Additionally, the Cartier Love Collection also presents us with a great piece to layer with, and the minimalist design of the Love bracelet makes it easy to pair it with different toned jewellery. It’s not uncommon to see influencers experiment with combining both iconic brands together to create one seemingly balanced and eclectic accessory that compliments their outfit. The different texture and sizes of the bracelets have the capability to not only showcase your personality but adds a sense of excitement and creativity to your outfits.

When it comes to rings, Gucci’s Link to Love collection offers us an abundance of designs to help elevate our outfits. Crafted from yellow, white and rose gold, the release features contemporary and geometric styles that are perfect for stacking. They arrive in a range of iterations — from plain options to diamond pavés and engraved stripes of emerald, rubies and tourmaline. Colourful and simple, it can be styled differently to embrace the fashion house’s spirit of individualism and self-expression.
