If you’re planning on including a chain in your daily outfits, you’ll want to know the different types of chain and their advantages. There are many different styles that work well with many different aesthetics, but it can be difficult to know which style will work best with yours. Lucky for you, Alfred & Co. London has introduced the latest box chains for men that are versatile and one of the most popular choices these days.
All you need to know about Box chains
Box chains are one of the most popular chain styles and are worn by both men and women. Silver Box bracelets and necklaces are simply stylish, durable, and versatile—making them perfect for any outfit. These chains are also known as square link chains, briolette’s, or Venetian chokers. They are created by forging square-shaped wires into a box shape. Each box has four equal sides and a flat, shimmering surface. Individual boxes are connected together with the same-shaped squares on both sides to create a perfectly symmetrical chain. When these boxes are aligned together, they have a shiny glint and resemble a glittery river of silver or gold. Sounds beautiful right?
Here’s why people just love Box chains…
A recognisable form, combined with a pattern in which the links connect, is at the heart of many traditional chain styles that later develop into more interesting versions. A classic chain link design is a 4-sided, square form with flat shiny surfaces. But why the name? Well, it simply looks like a box! Maybe you’ll think it’s too simple to be effective, but don’t be mistaken. They complete every outfit and make a truly bold statement.
When you combine two identical links, this basic shape develops the basis of an attractive chain link design with a sleek look from all sides. The Box Chain (also known as a “Venetian” Chain Link design owing to its origins in the historical artisan city of Venice, Italy) is available in silver or silver-plated. Its natural beauty makes it an excellent choice for any jewellery collection.
Box Chains for men – Pros and Cons
Box chains are versatile and come in a variety of designs for both men and women to choose from. A pair can also be chosen by couples as a symbol of their love and commitment. Although Box Chains don’t easily wear down, a broken link or two may occur over time. Fortunately, these can be easily replaced and reattached without compromising the integrity of the entire chain. Box chains are one of the sturdiest types of chains, which is why they’re used to make durable jewellery. They’re made up of inter-linking wires that form a box-shaped structure. These chains will last for a long time if you care for them properly.
As far as the cons go, they are almost insignificant. Chains worn with heavy pendants can get stretched over time. They may also become thin and stiff if you yank or pull on them. Although thin chains are more likely to break, thicker ones are better for people looking for durable pieces. Nevertheless, despite the risks, lots of people still prefer sleek chains for their lightweight and delicate appearance.
Let’s style your Box chain
Box chains are uber cool, fantastically stylish and have been crafted with exquisitely smooth Box-style links to create a truly elegant finish. They are versatile, classic pieces that can be worn with almost any type of pendant. They are a great choice for formal or everyday wear. For everyday wear, choose a simple pendant with minimal designs. For special occasions, wear a grander pendant to complement your formal outfit. If you want to make a bold statement, wear a thick box chain alone. You can choose how long the chain should be based on your personal preference or to suit your outfit.
