When it comes to jewelry, we're into the layering trend. We love layering minimalist gold or silver pieces, whether on our wrists, fingers, ears or necks. Why wear one piece of jewelry when you can curate the ultimate look with a combination of your favorites?

We have a few go-to brands for our jewelry layering, including BaubleBarGorjana, Luv AJLC Lauren Conrad, Uncommon James, Electric Picks, ZAXIEMade by Mary, Birdy Grey, Mejuri, Catbird, and Dogeared, . Keep on scrolling to found out why we adore these jewelry lines and to check out some of our favorite pieces.

Electric Picks' Celebrity-Loved Jewelry Is a Must-Have for Us

Chain Extenders

Chain extenders get an the first mention on this list because they are such a game-changing product for jewelry fanatics. Use one to increase the length of your necklace to create whole new looks and design the perfect balance for jewelry layering. We love this set at Amazon, which has silver and gold extenders in a variety of lengths. Made by Mary and Electric Picks also sell chain extenders, in addition to including them with some of their necklaces. 

Adina's Jewels

Adina's Jewels is a celeb-worn favorite for many reasons. There are a ton of styles and colors to choose from, which makes it the perfect one-stop shop for gifts and we love all of the different layering options. If you're not sure which pieces go together, there are photo recommendations showing which pieces look best together and there are even some combination sets that you can purchase. With Adina's Jewels, more is more. Layer the necklaces, bracelets, rings, anklets, and earrings (if you have multiple piercings). Right now, we are loving the Singapore Chain Necklace because it is the perfect complement to any necklace you already have. 

LC Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad has an amazing jewelry selection at Kohl's and they're all available at a reasonable price point. She even has a multi-strand necklace that takes the effort/guess work out of layering your jewelry on your own. This necklace also comes with a 3-inch chain extender so you have options.

Baublebar

BaubleBar has the perfect combination of fun, trendy pieces and and timeless jewelry styles that you'll keep forever. They have rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces in gold, silver, and a variety of colorful choices. With BaubleBar, more is more: layering and stacking your favorite jewelry is the way to go.

Gorjana

For a laid-back, California vibe, try Gorjana jewelry. The brand was founded in Laguna Beach in 2004 by husband and wife duo Gorjana and Jason Griffin Reidel. We especially love this delicate necklace with interlocking charms. It's available in both gold-plated and silver-plated brass options, and you can layer it with longer and shorter styles. One piece that we are loving right now is the Wilshire Charm Adjustable Necklace, which is available in gold and silver.

Uncommon James

Kristin Cavallari fans listen up: As you may already know, the reality TV star's brand Uncommon James is loved for its dainty jewelry options. Shop these compliment-magnet square hoop earrings. They're 14 karat-gold plated and killer. The brand also has beautiful necklaces, bracelets, and rings that coordinate so well with each other and jewelry you may already have.

Dogeared

Dogeared necklaces make great gifts thanks to the inspirational messages on their packaging, but you know that you can also pick one up for yourself, right? One of our favorites is this circle necklace, because it's reasonably priced for gold-dipped sterling silver. You can find it in sterling silver, too. We've noticed Dogeared necklaces hold up great over the years.

Electric Picks

If you enjoy the concept of wearing multiple jewelry items at once, but you're not quite sure how to style yourself, Electric Picks has a layering section on its website with necklaces that pair well together. They also have stackable rings and bracelets in addition to earrings. The brand is also sold at Nordstrom and Revolve.

ZAXIE

Zaxie has elevated statement jewelry that's both beautiful and affordable. We're into this Y-shaped necklace.

Made by Mary

Made by Mary's jewelry is beautifully simple and handmade. Most of their pieces are available in gold, silver, and rose gold options with different lengths to choose from. 

Birdy Grey

You know and love Birdy Grey for bridesmaid dresses, but now they have jewelry on their site. Of course, the accessories are great for weddings, but we love this bar pendant necklace for everyday wear. And you really can't beat these affordable prices. 

Luv AJ

Aside from having incredible jewelry, Luv AJ has a great backstory. The founder Amanda Thomas started the brand when she was just 14 years old.

Mejuri

Mejuri's philosophy is that fine jewelry is for every day, not just special occasions. They have zodiac-inspired pieces and a collaboration with goop in addition to some gorgeous necklaces, rings, bracelets, and anklets that are wonderful for laying. We adore the Dot Necklace on its own or paired with other necklaces. 

Catbird

Catbird has such a great jewelry selection with a wide variety of prices. We're eying this Threadbare ring that works on its own with additional Threadbare rings or any other rings you want to stack or if you just want to wear a ring on multiple fingers. It's available in gold and rose gold.

Custom Morse Code Gold Fill Bracelet

If you're looking for more affordable options, head to Jenny and Jude's store on Amazon Handmade. They're known for their custom Morse code bracelets, which come in both 14 karat-gold fill and sterling silver. You can have any word of your choosing displayed on the bracelets in Morse code dots and dashes. "My parents were both immigrant entrepreneurs and were my role models to take the step in creating a career for myself," the owner and founder Jennifer Miller says.
