A Guide to Finding the Perfect Chain for Your Personal Style

Your chain is an accessory that expresses the real you.
The length, metal type, and link style should complement your individual aesthetic.
This in-depth guide from Manique covers how to select chains that align with the image you want to present.

Choosing the Right Metal Type Based on Your Style Goals

Yellow gold offers an old-world richness, perfect for exuding refined sophistication. The warm golden tone flatters most complexions.

White gold or platinum has a contemporary crispness, ideal for modern fashion-forward looks. This metal excels in sleek, understated designs.

Rose gold provides a stylish balance between yellow and white metals. Its pinkish sheen nicely complements most skin tones while conveying a touch of femininity.

Make sure the tone of chains you select aligns with the style vibes you wish to give off. The jewelry metal sets the mood.

Finding the Ideal Chain Width & Length for Your Frame and Intents

A thicker, bolder chain makes more of a statement while a slimmer delicate chain offers subtle refinement.

Larger guys can pull off a chunky 10mm wide chain without it feeling oversized. Smaller men will find a 3-5mm width provides the right balance.
Chain length is important as well, A good starting point would be 18-20 inches.

Wearing multiple layered chains together allows you to mix varying widths for added visual interest.

Aim for a width suited to your body type that also fits your desired aesthetic. Wider isn’t necessarily better when it comes to chain impact.
