12 Las Vegas Jewelry Trends, No. 12, Link Love: Chain Link Styles Are a Versatile Addition to Every Jewelry Collector’s Wardrobe

New York City, May 24, 2019. Chain link styles are the chameleon of your jewelry box; chain jewels can be classic, punk, preppy, girly, bohemian, unisex, masculine, and more. New chain numbers are multiplying at a record pace to appeal to collectors who realize the value of this priceless versatility. Channeling a glam biker babe? There are thick curb-link drop earrings topped off with diamonds to help get the look. Lunching with grandma? Try a more reserved two-tone gold and silver necklace. And if you’re inspired by runway looks from Alexander McQueen or Chanel, add a statement pendant or enhancer to your links or layer them up with abandon. There’s never been a better time to express yourself through these diverse metal connections that both tie us together and convey distinct design preferences.

Editor’s Note: We are counting down the days to the most important jewelry trade shows in North America (happening in late May and early June in Las Vegas) with 12 days of jewelry trends! These trends are based on what’s been appearing in the market lately, what was on display at other recent fairs, and what designers say they’re making for the next shows.
