The most classical and most stunning choice of all necklace chain styles, anchor chains can elevate your look, no matter the details of your outfit, to a high level of elegance and sophistication. The chain’s links are oval, with a vertical bar in the center of each link.

Also called mariner chains, all necklaces of this type are designed to reference the type of chains used to attach an anchor to a boat. This style comes in many variations – flat, puffy, delicate, or heavy – so all you need to do is pick the one that matches the statement you want to make. If you want to emphasize the chain itself, go for a more robust design. If, however, you want just a touch of gold, opt for a simpler, more delicate chain.
