DALLAS, Dec 1, 2010 / — It’s the season for layering and I’m not talking about clothes. For a unique look, you can also layer your jewelry.

Just in time for the holidays, style expert and jewelry designer Robindira Unsworth, gives her favorite tips on how to make the most of the jewelry you already own!

  • Do combine different textures.

Pair leather with delicate chains, pearls and natural stones such as agate and drusy quartz for an organic vibe.

  • Do wear necklaces in a variety of lengths for added depth and interest.

A short chain adorned with a delicate charm layered with a strand of hammered metal beads and finished with a longer necklace embellished with richly colored stones instantly add style to any outfit.

  • Do mix new and old pieces.

Combine your stackable rings and bangles so that they are a unique mix of your own style. Try multiple variations to make your jewelry wardrobe work for you!

  • Don’t hesitate to combine metals.

Mix and match white gold, yellow gold, silver and oxidized silver to make stones stand out for a modern, chic feel with an edge.

  • Don’t focus too much on matching.

Add a surprising layer or a pop of color for an unexpected look.

  • Don’t be afraid to experiment!

Jewelry is an expression of your personal style, which means the more you experiment; the more comfortable you are with creating your own look.
