The 3 Types of Chain Necklaces You See the Most on Fashionable NYC People

Chain necklaces have been everywhere lately, but they're not all one and the same. In fact, we've noticed three styles repeatedly adorning the necks of the fashion set here in NYC: big and little loops, mariner links, and snake styles. Now, here comes the fun part: finding the style that speaks to you. 

Since loops of various sizes result in the biggest variety of styles, this trend lends itself most to statement necklaces. Look for chains that have clearly distinct dimensions in their links to make the biggest impact. 

Conversely, the mariner-style chain necklace feels like more of a timeless classic. It's worth investing in a chain made of quality gold or silver materials since you can wear this style for decades to come. 

Finally, the snake chain. If this is your foray into the chain game, we recommend starting here. The flat-lay styles are easy to wear every day and instantly add polish to any outfit without going over the top.

Ready to take the plunge? Good because we've pulled an array of these three styles of chains at various price points. Whether you're ready to invest in an everyday item or prefer to dip your toes into the trend with more affordable pieces, we have a feeling you'll find what you're looking for.
