When it comes to picking a chain for your silver necklace, there are so many different types of silver chains to choose from. But no worries, we will guide you through some of the most common types of silver necklace chains today.
Cable Chain Necklace
Cable chains are the most common and popular necklace chains, especially for pendant necklaces and charm necklaces. The cable chain’s timeless design may seem simple, but it’s surprisingly one of the sturdiest chains for chain necklaces. In modern design, cable chain necklaces are made with thin wire. Cable chain necklaces create a dainty yet elegant look, letting the chain lie beautifully on your skin, and drawing attention to the necklace pendant you chose to highlight your outfit and style. Besides, cable chains are also easy to repair, all you have to do is remove or solder the broken link.
Ball Chain Necklace
Another classic necklace chain, the ball chain necklace features shiny ball beads of the same size and shape, making it seem like dainty beads around your neckline. The ball bead chain is also known as dog tag chain, beaded chain or bead chain. Despite its delicate look, adding a dog tag pendant gives this silver necklace chain a modern charm with a hint of chic and rebellion.
Box Chain Necklace
A box chain, as the name suggests, is a chain made of linked cubes. These unique cube links are different from the usual round or thin links, forming a sturdy chain that looks smooth and polished. Box chain necklaces are also heavier than normal necklaces of the same size, due to the bulkiness of each box link. If you really love the sleek look the box necklace chain gives, make sure to get necklace pendants with a larger bail to fit the box chain necklace.
Rope Chain Necklace
Inarguably one of the most beautiful necklaces chains, rope chains are eye-catching in appearance and give off a luxurious look when adorned around your neckline. When it comes to wearing rope chain necklaces, you can opt for either a thin or a thick rope chain. For thinner rope chain necklaces, they pair well when worn with pendants and radiate a sophisticated look. Whereas thicker rope chain necklaces can be worn standalone as a statement piece.
Snake Chain Necklace
Snake chains, as seen in its name, give the illusion of a snake’s body gliding around your neckline. Traditionally, snake chains are made from round, slightly curved metal links that are tightly joined together to form a smooth, sleek chain that resembles a snake. The metal links are linked tightly, thus making it seem that the necklace is one piece. Snake chain necklaces look elegant and will add so much to an evening dinner outfit, but do know that it’s hard to repair a broken snake chain necklace.
Polo Chain Necklace
Polo chains can be fine and delicate, or bold and irresistibly eye-catching. These necklaces are made from similar-looking oval chain links that are joined together for a unique yet symmetrical look. Thin polo chain necklaces are often paired with a pendant to add elegance to one’s outfit of the day. However, some choose to wear the chain layered with other pendant necklaces or on its own for a minimalist look.
