The Ultimate Chain Guide

Types of Chains and How to Style Them

Any chic jewellery collection isn’t complete without the perfect selection of chains. A quick update for any look, whether you’re getting dressed up or rocking your favourite athleisure or loungewear, your chains add some on-trend style every time. So, how do you choose the right chains to add to your collection? We’ve got you covered with our easy chain guide.


Snake Chains

The ultimate foundation piece for your collection, the snake chain is continuing to have a moment right now. And if you haven’t added this chic piece to your collection yet, now is the time to invest. The links in a snake chain lie flat for that effortlessly cool, smooth look.

Perfect to wear solo to create a simple, chic and minimalist aesthetic or ideal to start a layered necklace look, choose our sleek Snake Chain Necklace or opt for extra minimalist vibes with our Flat Snake Chain for a smooth, silky finish. 


Paperclip Chain

Also known as link chains, paperclip chains are another staple piece for every wardrobe. Adding some extra detail to a layered look, these chains add dimension and volume to the rest of your delicate chains, giving your layered necklaces an on-trend finish.

Try our Paperclip Chunky Chain and style it with one or two super simple chains or a sleek snake chain.


Chunky Chains

Chunky chains aren’t going anywhere. So, if you’ve been loving this look but haven’t committed yourself yet, this season is the one for you. Try a Chunky Cable Chain or add a pearl detail with our Pearl Chunky Link Chain for extra new-season detail.

While gold will always be a vibe when it comes to chunky chains, silver is having a moment in the spotlight this season too. The perfect way to elevate a simple jeans and t-shirt look or give dressed-up looks an edge.


Figaro Chains 

If you’re looking for statement chains to update your collection this season, the Figaro chain is the perfect choice. A Figaro chain features round links paired with oval links that create texture and dimension and serve up some serious style points teamed with any look.

Opt for our Figaro Chain Necklace and wear it bold and solo with a sharp black blazer for a modern power look with a hint of on-trend gold.


T-Bar Chains 

A classic piece that will never go out of style is a simple, yet stunning T-Bar chain. This piece is perfect to create a simple look but also great for layering delicate chains with an extra on-trend detail. Try our Rope T-Bar Necklace if you love this vibe as much as we do.


Beaded Chains 

Beaded chains are a great way to opt for something super delicate with a little bit of extra detailing. With a subtle chain set with mini beads throughout, these are another ideal staple to have in your wardrobe to create your unique layered necklace look. 

Try our stunning Orbit Beaded Necklace or opt for a bracelet version of the look with our Beaded Chain Link Bracelet with added link chain finish.
