Link necklaces have been popular in one form or another—big, small, paper clip, Cuban, yellow gold, sterling silver—for as long as anyone can remember. It’s never so much whether a link necklace is considered trendy as which link has the fashion world’s attention, and even then, it’s also about how it’s being worn.
The recipe du jour: short, chunky, and piled on thick. The most up-to-the-minute way to wear this version puts maximalism on display; if you think you’ve piled on too many chains, consider one more.
Thankfully, there’s no shortage of good chains on the market. Proof is in the haul below: Glittering with diamonds or glistening in gold, and in an array of shapes and sizes, these are some of the latest links to stack on now.
