Curb chain necklaces for men have become extremely popular in recent years. As well as being timeless, they are effortless to wear. The curb design chain, which is also known as gourmette, is one of the most sought-after chains around the world. And they look great on men too! Alfred & Co. London can help you decide and pick the perfect stylish piece of jewellery that you will love to wear every day.
Curb Chain Necklace: What are they and how do they look?
Curb chains are designed similarly to cable chains. The oval links are usually flattened and twisted so that they rest even on the skin. Historically curb chains were used as straps under the horse’s jaw, thus the name. Due to the designs strength and sheer robustness, a silver curb chain necklace is always a lasting piece, both for women and for men.
Wearing a chain necklace can either make you feel like a gentleman or provide you with street cred, depending on how you dress it. Most men pick the ones that are thicker, and more flashy; but going for a thinner one delivers a more subtle, classic look & feel – you wouldn’t be disappointed with either! Additionally, curb chains are available in a range of lengths and finishes, and they are usually worn without a pendant.
Here’s how to style your curb chain necklace
The simple design of this necklace makes it very popular. However, there are some rules on how to style it. A good length for a man’s curb chain necklace is typically around 18-20 inches. As they lay flat on your chest, you should choose carefully what to wear with them. You can wear it under your shirt, or you can choose to show it off. For a classic look, opt for a monochromatic jumper or a t-shirt and a thinner silver curb chain necklace. Guys can easily pull off a bolder look by choosing a thicker curb chain, especially for parties or any informal events – if it’s a heavy and chunky necklace chain you are after checkout the Harlem cuban chain.

The chain is made up of soldiered links, which are thick and heavy, meaning- it won’t break that easily. No more losing our necklaces!
