Chain: The Hottest Essential For The Holidays

Over the last year, we have noticed chain becoming more and more prominent in the fashion industry. From clothing to accessories, this iconic utility statement is essential in everyone’s personal style. The surge in popularity of charms and layered looks in fine jewelry pieces has become a popular and versatile way to display chain of all kinds.

As the holidays approach and you experience an increase in business, think about how you position chain and all the different ways you can merchandise it. Stuller offers more than 330 different styles of both finished and unfinished chain, most of which are available for next-day delivery for your convenience. Whether your customer is looking to make a bold statement, match a classic style with a timeless pendant, or layer several different styles together, Stuller’s chain assortment has got you covered!

Statement Styles

Bold customers will be looking for standout pieces that catch the eye and wow those they meet. Statement styles, such as our favorite picks below (CH26 and CH1109), are great to pair with other necklaces or stand alone as their own style.


Layering and Length: Pair with Complementary Styles

Once you’ve curated your assortment, the last thing to consider is how to style products with your customers. Layering chains and necklaces together is another popular trend that speaks to personal style. Pairing chains of different lengths with a statement pendant or charm builds a more unique story.
