This look is so effective, as a strong chain can really highlight and bring attention to the shape and length of the neck. The is seen as an intimate area as it can show one’s vulnerability, as allowing someone into this area requires a high level of trust.
This chain also creates a ‘bad boy’ look which can be quite appealing to both sexes and suits all genders.History of the Men's Chain
The classic chain first came to light in the 90s with stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Heath Ledger sporting a chain. DiCaprio wore this iconic look in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet when he played the handsome yet fearless romantic lead, Romeo. Ledger also rocks this style in the teen chick flick 10 Things I Hate About You - further enhancing his character’s 'rebel' look.
However, the first true 'Men’s necklaces' were produced by the Celts who ruled Ireland. They were all master craftsmen of metal and the look started to become quite popular amongst them. After this, the Celts started producing these necklaces from silver and gold, to be worn by the wealthy and to show stature and power.
We have three simple chains at Joy Everley Fine Jewellers, one of which is a perfect replica of the chain Mescal wears in Normal People (Click Here). These chains can elevate any look and create that sense of rebellion you may need in your life. Don't be fooled - these chains are not just for Men - chains are innately gender-neural and can always be layered with other necklaces too! Anyone can wear these necklaces, both casually and for a sophisticated, refined look.
