Do You Approve of Heavy Neck-Pieces? Oh yeah, We Do!


Though dainty gold chains have been decorating the décolletage for seasons, fashion is taking the look up a notched link. From designer chains to Cuban links, these on-trend pieces are actually a return to a classic. See who’s wearing them well and shop pieces that range from investment to approachable.

’80s Baby

Embrace the subtle, sultry appeal of understated ’80s glamour—yes, there is such a thing—with a plunging top and cinched trousers, all done up in a restrained palette. Pair with a simple gold chain, of course.

We love the bold closure on this statement piece.

Give your workwear that gilded nod with a chain-link necklace, while keeping the rest of your look super simple.

This simple link is easy enough to wear every day.

Ripped from the Runway

Bottega Veneta’s runways have been so killer, they’ve spawned fan accounts. This necklace was clearly a standout.

A true hero of the season, this investment piece will become an instant classic.

Weekend Wear

A statement gold necklace can easily dress up pared-down separates like a white tank and high-waist denim.

We see this necklace classing up a white tee or accessorizing the go-to LBD you’re wearing to that eighth wedding this season.

Match Your Anklet

Double down and wear both the necklace and the anklet, and consider it a chain reaction.

An adjustable length on this piece means you can go from choker to clavicle grazer in no time.

Well Layered

A bold chain link looks especially cool worn with other, smaller gold necklaces. No need to ditch the dainty, just repurpose it.


This heavy link will make for the perfect counterpart to smaller, longer chains.

The ideal smaller chain to wear with all your new statement pieces.

To the Sea

While many Insta-girls have made the case for gold chains with white tees or tanks, take note from Evangelie and dress up your bikini too. This trend has no limits.


Consider this your swim necklace. Well, one of them, anyway.
