Layered necklaces are the perfect last minute Christmas gift

Layered necklaces are the perfect Christmas gift. If you still haven’t started Christmas shopping, now is probably a good time to panic. Anyone who has put the inevitable, stress-fueled spending spree off until now is either an adrenaline junkie or a masochist.

But, before you spend the evening frantically shopping, we have a recommendation for the ladies on your list: layered necklaces.

These trendy and elegant necklaces are extremely popular right now, but they have been around for a while, which means that they won’t be outdated faster than you can wrap them. And though they might be a last-minute gift, they don’t have that I-didn’t-know-what-to-get-you-so-here’s-a-lime-green-scarf vibe.

For young and hip girls, opt for a long, chunky layered necklace. Look for one in a unique or funky material, like rose-plated gold, bronze or copper, or search for a piece that combines silver and gold – not only do they look great, but they’ll match the rest of the recipient’s jewelry, too.

Women with conservative tastes might prefer a more subtle layered necklace. A few strands of silver or gold will be the perfect way to update their wardrobe. And a delicate accessory that dresses up a look is always appreciated.
