All About Chains: How-To Step Up Your Necklace Stack
Think of your go-to crisp white button-up or worn-too-many-times-to-count pair of denim. What do they have in common? They are the backbones of your wardrobe and the base of your capsule collection.
The same can be said for chains—a tried and true staple of any fine jewelry collection for adding a bit of edge. And while you may occasionally play favorites, a solid rotation of chains of varying textures, lengths, and materials can do wonders for any look (the more, the merrier, really).
Check out our guide to all things chains, updated with our latest styles (like our Paperclip Chain Charm Necklace or Titanium Curb Chain), and get inspired for your next necklace stack.
No two chains are the same. Each pattern performs a different styling function to create a textured stack that stands out on its own or together.
A series of wide, cohesive links create a flexible, bold chain.
Flat, slanted chain links parallel to each other give a sleek and fluid look.
Flattened solid loops link together to create a sturdy and stable structure.
Made up of symmetrical, uniform links, ideal for hanging pendants on.
The box shape creates a stable chain pattern that glistens from any angle.
Flat, braided links connect for a shiny, slinky statement.
Interconnected links resemble a ship’s chain holding an anchor.
Each of our chains is handcrafted in metals like 14k solid gold, gold vermeil, titanium, and sterling silver. Each finish has a variety of tones, from shiny to matte.
1. 14k Solid Gold
The 14k alloy gives our yellow and white gold pieces a lasting shine without worrying about oxidation or discoloration.
A thick layer of 18k solid gold over sterling silver gives pieces durability and a bold golden tone.
Featherweight in feel, this material is highly corrosion-resistant and durable for a lasting shine.
4. Sterling Silver
A lightweight metal made of 92.5% pure silver that’s highly durable and designed for everyday wear.
