Amongst the celebrities wearing a gold chain around their neck is Jay-Z, Ryan Gosling,.and Justin Theroux.  Male jewelry has been on the rise recently, with mens chains and necklaces rapidly increasing in popularity. 

Everyone from the Ancient Greeks to European monarchs used gold and jewelry to display their wealth and status. They were used as a way to show others that specific people were of high status, and if you think about it, they’re still used in a similar way. 

If you’re looking to add a gold chain into your collection, you shouldn’t waste your money on something cheap that’s going to fall apart after a few years. You should invest your money into something sturdy and high quality that will last you a lifetime. 

There are also many different types of gold chains that you can rock to match your favorite celebrity, including the following: 

Cuban Link Chain

The Cuban link chain has been around for years, dominating the R&B and Hip Hop spaces. If you’re really looking to flex on your friends, consider adding a thick Cuban link chain into your collection. 

We don’t recommend wearing a pendant with a thick Cuban chain, but a thinner chain would look good with a pendant. 

Franco Chain

Franco chains are most often worn by athletes. It’s similar in style to the Cuban style, but the chain links are much smaller and tighter. The Franco chain is a great one to add a pendant to, if that’s what you’re looking for. 

For an iced out look, you can get a Franco chain that’s decked out in diamonds. Franco chains look great in both white and yellow gold, but we always recommend going for yellow gold if you’re looking for more of a classic look. 

Figaro Chain

The Figaro chain is Italian-made and incredibly unique. These chains feature a series of smaller tighter links followed by a longer more open link to break up the pattern. Figaro chains are a great everyday style that still keep things fresh and unique.

Curb Chain

Curb chains are incredibly common but still stunning and cool. They are like Cuban chains but have a much more open style to make each separate link stand out more. Like the Figaro chain, this is a great everyday style. 

If you’re looking to ice out one of your chains, the curb chain is a great one to choose as the spread out link style will really showcase the diamonds.

Rope Chain

The moment you’ve been waiting for. What chains should you wear with a pendant? Well, to answer your question, the rope chain is the perfect chain for pendants. Its design features multiple thin link chains that are woven together to build out a rope-like look. 

The rope chain will look great with your iced-out pendants, jesus pendants, and more. For your largest pendants, opt for a thicker rope chain. 

Tips For Wearing Your Chain Like a Celebrity

If you’re trying to look like a celebrity when wearing your chain, make sure you’re wearing high-quality jewelry. Pick a celebrity you like and look at the chains they’re wearing and try to recreate their look. 

Choosing between yellow gold and white gold is also a big choice, and it’s a choice that depends on the look you’re going for. Silver looks best on white clothes and gold looks best with black clothes and other darker colors. 

No matter what you choose, you’re going to be flexing on all your friends with your new celebrity-inspired gold chains.
