How to Choose the Perfect Chain



Choosing a chain can be daunting when there are so many options to choose from.


What length do you get? What style? We're here to help.


Here are some tips and things to consider when shopping for chains.






What chain style?


Popular chain styles for pendants or charms are cable chains, threader chains, and box

chains. If you’re looking for chains to wear on their own, thicker Figaro, Rope, or Curb chains

are common choices.

What metal quality?


14k gold is the best choice for daily wear because of its inherent durability. Metal color

choices include white, rose, and yellow. For custom orders, platinum and 18k gold are

available in certain styles.


What length?


For chains to wear with a singular pendant or on their own, consider a shorter chain length.


For multiple pendants or for layering purposes, 18-24” lengths are popular choices.


Chokers are typically 14”, bracelets are typically between 7-8” and anklets are typically

between 9.5-10”.


What type of clasp?


The most popular type of clasp is a lobster clasp. Spring rings are a common choice for

more dainty chains.
