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!
Hi, I'm Aralyn Beaumont. I joined Who What Wear as the copy editor for branded content after a career in food media. Years of pouring over intricate recipes with a fine-toothed comb and working with high-profile chefs has prepared me well for working with fashion's top brands while honoring Who What Wear's voice. My background as a research editor makes me a finicky editor who will probably care too much about making sure all copy is as factually accurate and aligned with the house style guide as can be. Maybe it's because I'm a Gemini, but my personal style is impossible to pin down: One day you'll see me in a turtleneck sweater tucked into a midi skirt with heeled boots, and the next, I'll be wearing mom jeans, a white Hanes tee, and classic Vans. At the end of the day, my style reflects my various moods, and sometimes it will be feminine and elegant and others it will be grungy or androgynous. Certain things will always remain constant, though. I'll forever be on the hunt for the perfect pair of high-waisted jeans, the most delicious slice of pie, and the cutest shelter dog, who, upon locking eyes with me, will immediately convince me to take her home.
