Accessorizing 101: How to Choose the Right Neck Chain for Your Look
May 16, 2023
Unleash your inner style with the classic silver neck chain, the backbone of men's jewellery. Among the endless options of dog tags and beaded chokers, the simple silver neck chain proves less is more. The quality metal, length, and link style can elevate your look in a wink.
This timeless style has been donned by men for decades, taking everything from T-shirts to suits to the next level. But remember, quality is the key. Invest in solid precious metals like 925 Sterling Silver and steer clear of cheap imitations that tarnish or break easily. Uncomplicated, effortless, and always stylish – that is your classic silver neck chain.
So without any further ado, let's delve into the essential aspects that you need to take into account before making a purchase decision for silver neck chains for men that not only complement your personal style but also enhance your appearance with a touch of style.
Back to Basics
To ace your necklace game, it is important to get the length and width just right. For most men's chains, a length of 20 inches is the sweet spot, hitting the collarbone and looking great inside or outside a shirt. Avoid wearing longer chains of 22-25 inches under a shirt, as it leaves a weird bumpy impression on your smooth shirt or tee. Instead, sport them outside your shirt. As for width, chains between 2-6 mm are perfect for a minimalist look while chunky chains at 12 mm or wider is perfect for dropping some serious bling bomb. And don't forget to match your chain length and width for a proportional look. When it comes to clasps, make sure they are sturdy enough to support the weight of the chain and easy to fasten – because who needs a complicated clasp while dressing solo? We use a lobster clasp that gives assured fastening without any worries.
Style your Story
Silver neck chains for men can tell tales that are as varied as the styles themselves. A sleek, understated chain like this Classic Cable Link Chain can give off an air of sophistication and elegance, while a chunky, heavy chain like this Textured Dual Link Chain can convey rebellion and non-conformity. So, whether you're looking to show off your cultured and refined side or your rugged and rebellious edge, a silver neck chain can help you make a statement that is uniquely yours.
Plan your Necklace's Wardrobe
Yeah! Tip the wardrobe game on its head and give this accessory the upper hand. Think instead about what you will wear with your necklace. Will you wear it on top of your shirt or underneath it? This will help you determine the size and length. A silver chain necklace with quirky design elements like this The Modern Monk Chain can add some serious style points when worn on top of a basic T-shirt. Whereas the thick weave of this Chunky Rope Link Chain would look slick peeking out from under a button-down shirt.

Silver Swag to Indian Colours
When rocking a silver neck chain with the colour burst of your Indian wardrobe, there's no shortage of ways to shine bright like a diamond! Picture this: a deep maroon kurta with a sleek silver chain like this Intertwined Rope Link Chain peeking out from under the collar - now that's how you make an entrance! Or how about adding a touch of class to a classic black suit with a dapper silver chain like this Sleek Single Link Chain? And for those traditional occasions, earthy tones like brown and olive green make the perfect backdrop for a bold silver statement piece like this Textured Dual Link Chain. Don't be afraid to mix and match, experiment with different colours, and let your unique style shine through!
But one caution though: Matching metals is crucial to keeping your look sleek and on-point. Got a silver watch? Then you best be pairing it with a silver neck chain.
Stack it up, Jack!
If you love to layer...go wild. To layer necklaces and wear more than one, choose 2-3 necklaces of different textures and varying lengths. You can pick 20 inches designs like this Intertwined Rope Link Chain and pair it with a 22-inch long The Modern Monk Chain. Both have distinct looks and textures, and this conflict of design lends an element of visual interest to your total appearance. To wear them, start with the shortest chain and work your way down, leaving a bit of space between each necklace. With a little creativity and a keen eye for detail, you'll be layering like a pro in no time!
And there you have it!
