Choosing the Perfect Pendant Chain

Deciding on the perfect pendant? Don’t forget a chain to match! Know the difference between our six chain styles to guarantee the perfect pairing.

Omega Chain

Style Profile: Minimalistic
The Omega chain is made of almost seamlessly interconnecting links, making it smooth and gleaming. This chain creates a broad, sweeping “u” shape, and doesn’t bend and coil like other chains—rather, it’s a more structured piece that makes a statement for everyday wear.

Pair with: Solid-looking, geometric pendants. Look for bold shapes like Round, Princess and Emerald cut Nexus Diamond™ alternatives.

Snake Chain

Style Profile: Refined
Similar to the Omega chain, the Snake is constructed of interconnected links. This thinner chain has a liquid-looking shine and hangs in a much narrower “u” shape. It adds a bit more delicacy without losing the feeling of effortless on-the-go style.

Pair with: As with the Omega chain, geometric shapes pair well. However, look for more delicate settings to showcase the simple elegance of the pendant.

Wheat Chain

Style Profile: Vintage
This chain is intricate and detailed with a solid presence harkening back to a golden age of style: the 1920s. The links are deeply interconnected, which adds a feeling of timeless elegance and masterful craftsmanship.

Pair with: This versatile chain looks lovely with both classic pendants and fancy cuts such as a Marquise or Pear cut Nexus Diamond™ alternatives. It also holds its own with embellished pendants featuring accent stones or intricate settings.

Singapore Chain

Style Profile: Feminine
The Singapore chain is a work of art. Delicate links twist together with shimmering grace, making it a go-to choice for special occasions.

Pair with: Delicate pendant settings will match the feminine quality of this chain. Look for fancy cuts with accent stones, or choose an intricate multi-stone or mixed-metal pendant.

Cable Chain

Style Profile: Classic
A traditional, versatile piece that allows the pendant itself to take center stage. Each interlocking link is masterfully created with no marks or seams, creating a chain that shines with simple beauty.

Pair with: This chain goes well with nearly any pendant. It will showcase intricate settings or let elegantly simple pendants sparkle as the center of attention.

Box Chain

Style Profile: Innovative
This style of chain is created with a sequence of cube-shaped links. The interlocking boxes give the chain an extra element of dimension and visual interest for everyday wear or special occasions.

Pair with: Box chains are very versatile and can support a variety of pendants ranging from intricate and refined, to structural and bold.

Transform your pendant from charming to outstanding.
