Your Definitive Guide to Chain Necklaces

June 16, 2021Trending

Chains are one of the defining staples of a fine jewelry collection. Like the perfect white T or a good pair of denim, your rotation of chains, worn all together or one by one, is a wardrobe signature. Finding the right chain(s) maximizes your styling choices and creates unlimited stacks and layers. That’s why we design our chains in a variety of lengths, shapes and textures, so you don’t have to look far to find the right ones for you. Read below for our definitive guide to chains and how to shop for them. Or one piece of advice: Don't stop at one. When it comes to chains, more is definitely merrier.


CHAIN TEXTURES

No two chains are the same. Each pattern performs a different styling function to create a textured stack that stands out solo or together. Below, a little vocabulary lesson on the difference between a curb and cable chain, among others.

A flat texture with slanted chain links parallel to each other gives this chain it’s sleek and fluid look. 

3. Curb 

Flattened solid loops link together to create a sturdy and stable structure.

4. Cable 

Made up of symmetrical, uniform links making it ideal for hanging pendants on.

6. Rope 

One of the sturdiest chains named for its rope-like twisted links.


CHAIN MATERIAL
