5 rules for owners of wide gold chains
Before you buy a gold chain of increased width, think about what you will wear it with.
The dissonance between the massive decoration and thin, light fabrics does not allow combining a luxurious accessory with summer sundresses, blouses and chiffon dresses and flowing silk.
A large chain invariably attracts attention, which should not be dispelled, so it must be worn with a laconic outfit: one-colored dress, blouse, jumper without too much decoration.
For an evening or cocktail dress, buy a gold chain of original weaving with intricate links. Chains of weaving “Fox tail”, “Rose”, “Bismarck”, “Glamor” will emphasize the soft radiance of the satin or play on the contrast with the tenderness of velvet. Chains with stamped links in the form of flowers, petals, asterisks, and droplets decorated with precious stones are suitable for a ceremonial exit.
A catchy accessory should emphasize the neckline and focus on the décolleté, so women usually buy short wide chains about 45–50 cm long. The decoration will look “cropped” if its part is hidden under clothes. You can buy a long gold chain to a turtleneck or a dress with a stand-up collar, where it will elegantly fall directly on the fabric. Girls can wear a chain over a shirt, putting it under a turn-down collar.
Men’s chain should not be too long. It is desirable that she fell slightly below the level of the clavicle. If you are wearing a 48–52 size dress, the optimal length of the ornament is 45–55 cm. Longer chains are designed for full or men with a muscular neck and broad shoulders. Wearing a chain under the shirt, do not forget to unbutton a pair of buttons so that the stylish accessory can be clearly seen.
Gold chain more than 5 mm wide. Go to the owner of medium or large complexion. On a thin girl or a puny young man, she will look too heavy, only emphasizing the slenderness of the figure.
