"Everything You Need To Know About Finding the Perfect Links"

It’s no secret that chain-link necklaces and bracelets are among our favorite silhouettes at Broken English. They are elegant and easy, and well-made chains become beautiful heirloom pieces for future generations. But, sometimes, picking out the perfect link can be overwhelming. Without further ado: our picks for the perfect link, no matter what you are looking for.

Paperclip Chain

Designed in the Victorian Era and is defined by long oval links primarily seen on early watch fobs. Perfect for layering with other small, dainty chains.

Belcher Chain

Also known as a Rolo chain, these links are typically wider than their thickness, making them substantial in design and perfect for birthstone Charms & Pendants!

Anchor Chain

As its name suggests, this chain is inspired by the anchors of a boat. Subtle and chic.

Gourmette Chain

A chain ideally suited for evening, these links are twisted with a diamond cut allowing them to sit perfectly flush on the skin.

Satellite Chain

Delicate chains interspersed with beads or stones throughout the strand. These designs are an easy way to insert color into your look for the Summer vibes we are all looking to achieve.
