How to Choose the Right Chain to Showcase Your Pendants & How to Mix and Match Different Types of Chains and Pendants - bayamjewelry

How to Mix and Match Different Types of Chains and Pendants

There are so many chains available that it can be difficult to choose. From sophisticated Rope Chains to bold Cuban Link Chains, there are so many styles to choose from. We know you want to look your best, so you might wonder the best way to wear these chains, whether they are suitable for a pendant, or how to mix and match different pieces. But there is no right or wrong answer, you can find your style by experimenting with different pieces! Nevertheless, we do have some pointers to help you find the perfect chain and pendant match.

There are two ways to go around this - you can pick your pendant first or your chain first, and build your look around it. So consider the following approach:

  • Start by finding the right size and style of pendant. If you like a larger pendant, then you will need a thicker chain to support it, whereas smaller pendants look great on thinner chains.
  • The length of the chain will determine whether it's great for layering; a shorter chain is perfect for showcasing a pendant, whereas a longer one would be much better suited with a large pendant.
  • The metal of the chain should also be considered. Generally, the same color chains and pendants go well together, but you can also choose contrasting metals to create an eye catching look. 
  • Gradually figure out the overall look you're trying to achieve; A small pendant with a delicate chain can create an elegant look, refined look, while a bolder chain and pendant announces your presence.

Size of Pendants and Chains

Find the right proportions for the chain size to the pendant it will be worn with. A larger pendant might look disproportionate on a thin chain, while a smaller pendant may get lost on a thick chain. Find the right balance with the perspective of the person wearing the pendant. Longer and larger chains and pendants may be more appropriate for someone taller and buffed up, while a smaller pendant is more appropriate for someone more petite.

For example, it’s better to combine a long, thick Cuban Link Chain with a bold, eye-catching pendant like our Diamond Cut Last Supper Charm Pendant. Because of the length and thickness of the Cuban Link Chain, a smaller pendant will be overshadowed by the chain. Smaller pendants should be combined with shorter and thinner chains, so that your pendant is not overshadowed and is instead highlighted.

When buying a pendant, visualize when you'll be using it and where you'll take it; a larger pendant may be more appropriate for a statement piece, while a smaller pendant may be more appropriate for everyday wear. You can choose the pendant based on where you are and what you are doing.

Style of Pendants and Chains

The most important thing to consider when choosing jewelry is personal style and preferences. Your chain and pendant should match your overall style and be a reflection of your style. Define your style, and choose the right pendant to reflect your taste. No matter what the trends say, a pendant you love will always stand out because of the confidence it gives you. Imagine and visualize the outfit you'll be wearing with the pendant. A pendant that complements the colors and style of your outfit will stand out more than one that clashes and misses the mark. The size of the pendant will play a major role in defining the style. A pendant that is too small may get lost on your body, while a pendant that is too large may overpower your outfit.chain-and-pendant

How to Choose a Gold Chain?

You have a lot of things to consider when choosing the correct style and length for a chain, but the first thing to do is know your body type and general style. A chain length that complements the neckline is vital to give a well-rounded, aesthetic look. A longer chain will always complement a V-neck or scoop-neck top, but a shorter chain will look great with a high-neck or turtleneck top. While layering multiple necklaces, choose a chain length that allows the pendant to sit at the desired level, either the neck level or the bust. If you want to know more about chain lengths, take a look at our blog on the Best Chain Length for Men. 

Style-wise, we really can’t tell you what chain to pick as they are all so stylish and it’s a very personal choice. If you already have a pendant, you should choose your chain accordingly, or if you don’t, you should choose the chain that you like the most and that you think will suit your style the best. But whatever your style preferences, with our variety of gold chains, we guarantee that you will find the chain you are looking for, whether it’s an elegant Herringbone Chain or a stylish Figaro Link Chain.

The Right Color Coordination

You should also consider the color of your chain and pendant to ensure that they go well together. Generally, the color of your chain should match the color of your pendant for best results. But a dual-tone chain, like our Pave Miami Curb Link Chain, or contrasting colored chains and pendants can make it stand out more. So it’s completely up to personal preferences. Or if you can’t decide, you can also choose a reversible chain like our Reversible Monaco Cuban Link Chain, so you can wear yellow gold one day and white gold the next - you basically have two chains for the price of one!

It's also important to consider the quality and durability of your metal to ensure that it lasts you a long time, and resists tarnishing or discoloration. At Bayam Jewelry, all our jewelry is made with the highest quality materials with excellent craftsmanship so not only are they stylish, but they are also strong and durable.
