Belcher chain

A belcher chain is a great classic chain style for yourself or as a gift. It is typically described as having links which are wider in thickness. In general the links are round. A small, dainty belcher chain can look great if you have a small frame.

A large belcher chain can make a real statement and really add that something extra to any outfit. Because of it’s classic style, it is something you can wear for many years to come.

Heavy Fob chain

A fob chain is generally described as a chain which has a bar feature and worn as the center piece of the chain. You can also get this type of chain in a bracelet which can be a lovely add on gift if you are buying the fob chain for a gift.

A heavy fob chain, like the belcher chain is a great piece of jewellery you can wear everyday and to special occasions. By investing in a quality chain, you won’t be without a quality necklace that will match just about any outfit.

Name necklaces

Name necklaces are dainty and pretty neck chains which make the perfect gift for someone special. They are normally characterised by a thin chain that leads to a first name which is the centerpiece of the necklace. You can generally buy them made to order and often they are encrusted with diamonds or gemstones if you want something with a little more bling.

Dainty pendant necklaces

A dainty thin silver or gold chain with a small pearl pendant or gemstone pendant attached to it can look elegant and sophisticated whether you are going out for lunch or to a formal dinner. If you don’t want something that is too loud, a thin chain with a small pendant can really add something extra to your outfit without being too much.

Long boho style necklaces

Long chains have been popular for some time. In gold and silver, these chains look great with a stunning medium to large sized pendant attached at the centre or a cluster of smaller charms put together. You can wear more than one of these at a time, just make sure one is slightly shorter than the other in order to create the right look.


Choosing the length of your necklace can be difficult. Like diamond rings, necklaces are something that we may wear for many, many years to come, so getting the length right is very important.

The princess length is the most common necklace length. It is designed to hang just below the collarbone and is usually 18 inches long. This length in general will always look good with an array of clothes, from high necks to plunging v-necklines.

The longer length, draping necklaces are very popular at the moment and will also suit an array of different clothing if you find the princess length too high.
