How do I choose the best chains for pendants?

Choosing the best chains for pendants can be difficult. With so much choice, and varying necklace chain lengths, it can be hard to know where to begin, particularly if you are selecting something as a gift

There are, however, a few simple rules which can make choosing your necklace chain length and style easier:

  • Find the strongest style of chain- This is usually Curb, Cable and Trace chain

  • Choose the correct bail size- You need to choose a chain with a bail that allows the pendant to move freely through the hole.

  • Select the right length- Depending on where you want your pendant to sit will change the length of chain you need.

  • Select the right thickness- The best gauge for pendant chain is usually 0.9mm-1.7mm
