Our spiritual necklaces are meaningful additions to any attire. And remember, you never need to limit yourself to one symbolic piece. If your heart calls you to embody your spirituality with multiple necklaces, layer your meaningful jewelry. When layering symbolic jewelry, you create an attire with multiple meanings that help encourage more inspiration and intention in your day.
For instance, if you feel called to wear both chakra and evil eyes necklaces, you create an outfit that brings balance and protection into your life. Learn how to create a layered look with your necklaces using the steps outlined below to give your attire a deeper meaning.
Vary the Lengths of the Necklaces
When you wear spiritual necklaces that are the same length, their meaningful symbols can become tangled together and difficult to see. To show the symbolism and beauty of each piece, vary the lengths of your necklaces by choosing different chain lengths. For example, if you feel called to wear three spiritual necklaces with your outfits, choose one that is a short length, one that is a medium length, and another that is longer than the previous two.
With these different sizes, you’ll allow each piece to show and add spirituality to your outfit. Some people feel that they should only layer two necklaces. In this case, it’s best to go with either a short and a medium length necklace or a medium and a long length necklace. You want to give each pendant enough space to show its symbolism and beauty without being crowded by the others. The key to finding the perfect spacing is to try different chain lengths or use a necklace extender and see what creates an elegant look that allows each pendant to display its unique symbolism.
Pick Different Symbols and Designs
The next step to create a layered look with your necklaces is to pick different symbols and designs. Wearing multiple spiritual necklaces that have the same design is not likely to add multiple meanings to your outfits. If you feel encouraged to pair a chakra necklace with a symbolic necklace, such as a lotus necklace, you combine two meanings: the alignment of chakra and the ability to rise above challenges to manifest a new beginning.
Choose a Statement Necklace
If you feel drawn to a particular spiritual necklace and want it to stand out from the rest of your jewelry, use it as a statement necklace. A statement necklace stands out from your others by having a unique symbolic design, beautiful gemstones, or large size. This statement necklace can be short, medium, or long in length, and layering it with other jewelry allows you to draw the eyes to a piece that has a special place in your heart.
Wear the Same or Intentionally Mix Your Metals
To achieve the perfect layered look, we recommend wearing the same type of metals, such as our rich 18kt gold plated styles, or intentionally mix metals, such as sterling silver or gunmetal, to achieve an eye-catching and contrasting style.
Bring In Healing With Gemstones
Gemstones add color, healing, and inspiration to your symbolic jewelry. Many of our collections include jewelry with healing gemstones. Some of our meaningful collections, such as our Chakra collection, include many balancing gemstones within a single necklace or bracelet. A few of the symbolic gemstones that we offer at Satya Jewelry are:
- Rose Quartz
- White Topaz

Add Your Personal Touch
With these layering ideas in mind, it’s time to choose jewelry that speaks to your heart. Do you want to represent alignment and protection in your life? If so, layer chakra and evil eye necklaces. Perhaps you feel drawn to mandala and star pendants, which embody peace and guidance. It’s all up to you and what you feel called to wear.
And remember, there are no strict rules when it comes to layering your necklaces; it all depends on what your intuition and heart moves you to wear.
Try Multiple Looks
There are many different ways to layer your spiritual necklaces to create deeper, combined meanings. If you have many symbolic necklaces in your jewelry box, you’ll find that there are endless ways to mix and match them. To find the best necklaces for your attire and present state of mind, try multiple combinations. Try a combination of symbols that have special meanings to you or layer with a combination of healing gemstones. You’ll never know what mix will speak to your heart until you try it on.
If something doesn’t feel quite right, you can also try layering your symbolic necklaces with different outfits. Sometimes a collection of symbolic necklaces might not be the right fit on one outfit but could add beauty and meaning to a different attire. When you layer your necklaces, keep your outfit and symbol choice in mind.
Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration for your attire. If you need some inspiration to layer your necklaces, think about the meaning behind the jewelry you wear. Layer Saturn, moon, and mandala necklaces for strength, protection, and peace. When you want to embody wisdom and guidance, wear elephant and star pendants.
We hope that you now know how to create a layered look with your symbolic necklaces and add deeper meanings to your daily attire. And remember that the steps above are suggestions, and you should only use the advice that embodies your style and spirituality.
