While Miley Cyrus continues to push the envelope in a seemingly endless parade of wacky ensembles (see: cat-print bikini), there is one part of her ever-evolving look that seems to stay the same: her jewelry. Whether they're piled on or worn solo, a covetable collection of necklaces have quickly become part of her signature look.
Being the superstar that she is, most of her jewels are big-time designer pieces. But that doesn't mean you can't learn a thing or two from her accessorizing prowess.
A gothic-style letter is totally in-tune with her tough-girl vibe, so it's no wonder Miley's rarely spotted without her Jennifer Fisher "M" initial. For cool contrast, she often pairs it with her other glam standby-a vintage Chanel crystal choker. The two different lengths complement each other perfectly, while the glitzy stones and tiny logo charm infuse her look with luxe appeal. And since she's always been an L.A. girl (or at least since that time she, um, "hopped off the plane at LAX"), Miley sports the city's 818 area code on a small gold nameplate necklace-a sweet, subtle way to show her West Coast pride.

When she's not rocking layers of gold chains, the star opts for major statement necklaces instead. Her oversize Céine links strike a balance between punky and haute, adding tons of glam without sacrificing edginess. Plus, it's the ideal accent for an all-white outfit-of which there are many in Miley's repertoire.
But she can rock demure bijoux, too-her other staple is a simple strand of diamonds. While many people reserve these fancy gems for formal affairs, Miley's given hers a fresh, youthful spin by wearing them with crop tops, cutoffs, and creepers. It's even a go-to for her off-duty looks, too...just check out her Instagram below!
