Read on for our complete guide to making a style statement with chains!

Dress Up or Dress Down?

Time is of the essence when planning is required. This is a time-tested theory. Collectively, all social calendars are in full swing across age groups, whether proms, dates, office parties or long-lost catch-ups with friends. Having too many plans may be a double-edged sword sometimes because now you need to figure out not just the outfits but the perfect chain to go with them. The versatile gold chain is one timeless yet astute piece of jewelry that consistently rises to every occasion. There is a range of variations when it's gold chains. They can be matched with turtlenecks or tuxedos, dresses or skirts. Chains have quickly become a must-have accessory for anyone hoping to revitalize their look. If your style is simpler and low-key, you should wear a delicate gold chain. The style is extremely subtle and classic; they're meant to blend seamlessly from one outfit to another.

Choosing the perfect jewelry for your necklines can be a tricky business. To make it easier,  you can follow some guidelines or get inspired by style icons, which is available in our blog on The Most Popular Men's Gold Chain Necklaces Among Celebrities and Influencers. But chains are not only for hip-hop artists or movie stars; at Bayam Jewelry, we offer a wider range of affordable chains that will make you feel like a celebrity yourself.

Gold Chains for Office Parties


For work events like office dinners or holiday parties, a Miami Curb Link Chain goes perfectly with a sleek blouse and loose trousers. Or, you can pair it with a trendy jumper to add a touch of sophistication to your casual after-hours outfit. If you want something a little extra, you can pair it with an elegant pendant like our Crucifix Jesus Body Pendant, which is especially perfect for a Christmas party.

Pendant Chains for a Date

A romantic night out is exponentially better with a stylish piece around your neck, like our Nugget Pendant. You can pair it with neutral color clothes to create a sense of calm and ensure your pendant is the star-piece of your outfit. If you're looking for a beautiful contrast that makes you look stylish, try on a white shirt and trousers with a pendant chain, like our Diamond-Cut Heart with Drops Pendant, which is the perfect balance between a flirtatious vibe with an element of boldness.

Thick Rope Chains for a Low-Key Meetup

Rope chains have been in the mainstream for quite some time now—they make you stand out from the crowd when you wear them with something that screams casual, like a white t-shirt or an athleisure look. But what's the secret to making this chain work for you? Scale the links to the right size and make them look hefty; that's a sure-shot way of making the rope chain the focal point of your outfit.

Gold Chains for the Red Carpet Look

A chunky chain necklace adds the spark you need to take everyday outfits to those outstanding outfits. Who said style is just for the paparazzi and office hours? A chunky chain necklace transforms your dull day into a random and spontaneous night. Switch your tee and the causal game for a sleek, classy dress, and this piece steps up to become a gala-worthy accessory. Pair it with something striking and minimalist to flaunt your style with this statement piece.

Subtle Gold Chains for a Casual Brunch

A simple gold chain with a subtle and simple pendant adds that personal touch to take your style game to the assertive level. The gold chain features the right amount of sparkle to make it feel like a special piece, even in the case where you wear it every day. For those lazy Sundays and those cozy brunches, let a necklace stand out and peak your baggy button-up with a layered look.

What Is the Ideal Chain Length?

It's always important to know where the ornament hangs on your chest because it affects the overall style and how it makes you look when you wear it across different types of shirts.

Short Necklaces for All Looks

Like many influencers and fashionistas, short necklaces can sit well with anything and everything. Short necklaces look unusual if they go underneath a men's dress shirt, so it's nice to wear them at a choker level. Any shirt with a turn-down collar looks excellent with a rightly-sized short necklace. They stand their fashion ground sense when worn above the dress, and viewers can see the whole necklace.

Medium-Length Chains: Layering Kit Starters

Medium-length chains hang around the base of the neck, so they are perfect for V-neck shirts and t-shirts. They are best worn alone or with medium-sized pendants like our Diamond Cut Lion Head Charm Pendant, as big and heavy pendants may look disproportionate. Alternatively, you can combine a medium-length chain with a long chain and pendant to create a stylish layered look. 

Long Chains for a Bold Style

Long chains are the perfect choice for bold, eye-catching pendants, like our Diamond Cut Last Supper Charm Pendant. They are perfect for showcasing your bold style and personality and guaranteed to elevate any outfit. They are especially perfect for crew neck tops like t-shirts as they may get lost with a V-neck top. Or during summer months, you can style your chain and pendant with an open shirt.
