When shopping for jewelry gifts I like to look at current jewelry trends so that I can not only find the piece that is just right for my recipient, but will also keep them looking fashionable.  One of the hottest jewelry trends of 2012 is layering necklaces and pendants.  Everywhere I look, I see women layering chains and pendants of various lengths to create this trendy look.  Name necklaces and pendants are amazingly easy and fun to layer and make your look uniquely yours.

From chains to charms, beads and crystals, this season everyone is layering their necklaces.  Name pendants are easy to layer and come in a various chain lengths, making them even easy to layer.  Available in a wide variety of styles, it is easy to mix and match designs and fonts for a fun layered look.  Best of all these necklaces can just as easily be worn on their own and will still look equally stunning.
 
Looking for a gift for mom? When layered, moms can easily show off all their children by simply layering name pendants featuring each child’s name.  Heidi Klum has recently been spotted rocking the layering look, wearing pendants feature each of her children’s names she pairs the charms with a few chains for a simple yet sophisticated look. 

Whether you're shopping for mom, your best friend, or even yourself, everyone will love wearing their personalized name necklace regardless if it's layered or worn alone.
