How to Use Chains in a Jewellery Context

How to Use Chains in a Jewellery Context

April 25, 2016

In an industrial context, chains are used to pull, tug, suspend and support. However as well as being functional creations, they’re also a key element in contemporary jewellery crafting. So how are chains used to fashion beautiful style statements?

Chains in all shapes and sizes

In a jewellery context, chains are absolutely not limited to a single style. On the contrary, they come in a kaleidoscope of different shapes and sizes to suit all tastes. For example, a woman may prefer to string a delicate pendant onto a wafer thin chain. Alternatively, a gent may choose to wear a sterling silver men’s chain that’s crafted with bigger links. This creates a chunkier and more masculine look.

Showing off other elements

As well as being worn by themselves, chains are also a wonderful way to show off existing jewellery. As long as they’re the right size, chains can be used to suspend pendants, sterling silver charms and more.

Beyond necklaces and bracelets

While chains are traditionally used to create necklaces and bracelets, they also look stunning when strung from the ears. The linked look creates a beautifully dazzling effect, particularly when the chains are crafted from Italian sourced sterling silver.  These Sterling Silver Chain Drop Earrings are a show stopping example of just how much of an impact chain earrings can make.

Teamed with other elements

Chains are stunning by themselves, but they can also be dressed up by weaving in other elements. From precious gemstones to pearls, chains can be transformed into gorgeous statement pieces that are guaranteed to turn heads.

For the gents

Gone are the days when jewellery was limited to female wardrobes. Today, sterling silver men’s chains are a serious style statement. Finished such as jet black ruthenium plating create a bold, masculine aesthetic that can be teamed with any attire, from office suave to weekend casual. Men can rock both chain bracelets and necklaces, as long as they’re purchased from a collection designed exclusively for males.

As explored, chains are an incredibly diverse jewellery tool.
