How to choose the right chain?
There are three main things to consider when matching chains to pendants, Length, strength, and style.
Firstly, the most important thing to consider is the weight of the pendant you want it for. Not only would a large pendant on a fine chain look out of place but the chain would probably wear out and break before too long. The other way around, a heavy weight chain might overwhelm a small, delicate pendant.
Next what length do you want to wear the pendant? Generally speaking, smaller pendants are usually worn higher and larger pieces lower, but this is a matter of taste and style, sometimes the opposite can be true! As a very rough guide, especially if you’re buying as a gift, a smaller design would work best up to a 20” length and larger pendants over 24”
Lastly, try and match the style, a heavily oxidised and detailed pendant usually looks best with a Rope or a Belcher chain, whereas a more sleek, modern design would normally be worn on a simple, polished snake chain, but again, this is very much up to personal taste.
We carry a variety of chains ranging from 14” inches (35cm) long to 36” inches (90cm)
