With the layering necklace trend reaching fever pitch and an onslaught of celebrities stacking on their trophy jewels, it may seem like the next trend would be for us to hang up our chains completely. But we're here to say, not so fast.
Taking notes from our favourite Frenchie, Lou Doillon, and rock goddess and Gucci muse Zumi Rosow, we're elevating the 'clean girl' jewellery look to an edgier vibe.
Enter, pendant stacking.
Whether you're stringing one pendant per necklace or stacking multiple on one strand, adding pendants and charms to your necklaces is not only a fun and easy way to experiment with your personal style, it's a quick way to update your well-worn necklaces.
And just in time for the trend update and gift-giving season, is cult jewellery brand Mejuri's additions to its Collectables Collection of cute charms; collaborations with Copenhagen cool-girl Matilda Djerf, slick skateboarder Briana King and girlboss entrepreneur Nadya Okamoto.
Each charm represents a personal story for the Mejuri collaborators; Matilda's sun charm is inspired by the matching wrist tattoo she got with her mates, Briana's heart-shaped purple peace sign is inspired by the love of her community and her grandmother who always wore a dash of purple, and Nadya's tiger charm represents her Chinese zodiac sign, and her fierce resilience.
This is where we also take our pendant stacking cues, choosing charms that can become signifiers of our own personal story, the talismans that represent us. Not to mention, they're also perfect for gifting on special occasions to mark milestones for that personal touch.
If you're a helicopter parent to a fur baby, then you may want to choose a pendant for you and a matching tag for your four-legged bestie to serve up a major Paris Hilton moment; Mejuri's launching a Pet Tag collection this November, so both you and your pet can wear Mejuri.
Below we round up our favourite pendants for you to string, stack, gift and charm with.
