7 Necklaces for Achieving That Perfected '90s Look

I once quite empathically wrote about my love for silver jewelry for Who What Wear, but I guess I'll be the very first to admit that people do change. I've crossed over to the gold side, and I even throw a pearl moment into the mix when I'm feeling wild. I just can't resist the super cute '90s look of layering different styles and lengths of gold chains and incorporating fun accents like pendants, pearls, and oversize clasps. Looking to achieve the perfect layered look? Keep scrolling.

Start things off with this simple and dainty gold chain and pendant, then seek out a chunky gold necklace that's just a bit shorter in length.

I cannot express how much I love this necklace. The wide-curb chain link gives me the edgy vibes that I love about silver jewelry.

Layering irregular pearls with gold chains is the key to the perfect '90s look.

The paperclip necklace is such a refreshing take on gold chains. I love wearing this alone or with pendant necklaces.

I once stole all the herringbone necklaces out of my grandma's jewelry box, and I'm so glad I did. They add such a unique touch to a necklace cluster.

Spaced ball chains are so delicate and pretty. I love how delicate the coin on this necklace is as well. It would look really good with the pearl or herringbone pieces above. Or both!

And the pièce de résistance: A paperclip chain with a pearl motif. Please layer this with other necklaces in the story, but know it will look divine on its own, too.
