In recent years, the layered necklace has become the ‘It’ accessory. From short chains paired with chunky curb chokers, coin pendant necklaces coupled with paperclip links and slinky snake strands mixed with collared charms, the multi-strand necklace is a must have in any contemporary jewelry case.

Celebrities and musicians can’t get enough of creating their own personalized necklace sets. Pop stars like Olivia Rodrigo love layering pieces; the songstress often wears astrological stargirl chokers, alphabet chains and glassy heart pendants overlapped together. Dune star Zendaya has been spotted in Valentino Rockstud layered chains and Bulgari chokers while English actress Florence Pugh can’t resist tennis necklaces clumped together in a medley of metal or a tiered assembly of choker strands.

Not to mention Taylor Swift, who is often found in opal pear pendant accented chains intermixed with yellow gold belcher chokers. Also spotted in the trend: American model Hailey Bieber who has mastered the art of the luxe layered look.

So, it’s no great surprise fashion forward Princess Kate has joined the chorus of those looking for gilded pieces with dimensional flair. Embracing the infinity necklace, Kate utilizes these mixed metals to add interest to her workwear and elevates her regal ensembles into something more memorable.

Here are 5 Times Kate Middleton Wore a Layered Necklace:

1. All the Falling Stars Layered Disc Necklace + Spells of Love Double Strand Necklace

At London’s Battersea Park, the princess looked to be outfitted in her business casual best wearing a Ralph Lauren ribbed cotton top paired with M&S pink trousers and a pair of canvas sneakers. The otherwise noteworthy ensemble was more intriguing thanks to doubling up her necklaces. At the family focused event, Kate opted to play mixmaster and paired her Spells of Love Double Strand Beaded Chain Necklace with an All the Falling Stars Gold Three Layered Disc Necklace.


2. Spells of Love Double Strand Necklace  + Asprey London Woodland Charms Necklace 

For a visit to the V&A museum in 2021, Kate wore a red and black Alessandra Rich houndstooth drop waist dress. To add a dose of modern whimsy to her retro ensemble, Kate cleverly combined her Spells of Love beaded satellite chain necklace with her Asprey London Woodland Charms Necklace (the piece features three distinctive gold charms including an acorn, oak leaf and woodland mushroom).


3. Spells of Love Double Strand Necklace + Astley Clarke Round Lapis Necklace

Stacking necklaces is almost like creating a jewelry recipe. Kate loves to play with ingredients when it comes to making her accessory statements. In the summer of 2021, the princess held an early childhood meeting followed by afternoon tea in a pretty pastel ‘Dee’ purple sheath by L.K. Bennett. To add a little modern edge and contemporary glamour, she wore her Astley Clarke Stilla Lapis Lazuli pendant necklace overlapped with her Spells of Love demi-fine gold double chain.


4. Spells of Love Double Strand Necklace + Daniella Draper Midnight Moon Pendant Necklace 

In July 2021, at Day 5 of the Wimbledon Championships, the princess looked elegant in a playful pleated polka midi skirt by Alessandra Rich paired with her trusty Smythe one-button Duchess blazer in navy. Looking office appropriate at the popular tennis competition, Kate added a bit of ‘street style’ to her otherwise routine royal outfit. The princess coupled her Spells of Love double chain necklace with her Daniella Draper Midnight Moon necklace engraved with three stars and the first initials of her children.


5. Spells of Love Double Strand Necklace + Daniella Draper Midnight Moon Pendant Necklace 

In June 2021, Kate looked effortlessly chic in a pink Chloe gathered wool blazer and some light blue jeans by & Other Stories for a visit to the Urban Nature Project at the Natural History Museum. For the visit, Kate doubled up on neckline accessories and layered two of her jewelry favorites together: Spells of Love and Daniella Draper.
