When you think of men’s jewelry, the first thing to pop into your mind is most likely a classic chain necklace. And you’re definitely right. One of the most popular fashion accessories for decades has been chain necklaces. This is largely due to their versatility and timelessness. A classic chain has never, and will never go out of style. As for versatility, the options are endless. Chain necklaces can be worn alone as a statement piece, stacked with other necklaces, or customized with charms and pendants. Their bold look and effortless style has made 2023 the year of men’s chain necklaces, and more specifically the year of the layered look. Celebrities have been attending red carpets, shows and award functions adorned in chain necklaces. These accessories not only add a high-class touch to any outfit, but they also reflect the wearer’s personality and personal style.  With the rise of celebrity culture, and the increasing popularity of fashion-forward celebrities like Harry Styles, Charles Melton, and Drake, it’s not surprising that more and more men are interested in wearing jewelry to make a statement. Whether you’re looking for a simple chain to add some subtle elegance to your look, or a bolder piece that reflects your personality, the right necklace can elevate just about any outfit. A finely crafted gold chain necklace = an effortless flex. 

When choosing the right chain for you, the most important thing to consider is your daily routines and your personal style. What design are you more attracted to? Are you looking for an everyday piece that’s perfect for layering, or are you looking for statement that will turn heads wherever you go? What about metal and color? Although steel is a good alternative if you want something that’s silver in color, yellow gold is our personal favorite. Gold jewelry both stands the wear and tear of everyday use and it doesn’t tarnish over time. 

Finally, it’s time to choose the design of your necklace. Although chains may seem similar, there is actually a variety of chain styles. What makes these chains different is the design of the links and the way the links are attached to one another. One of the most popular men’s necklace, as well as the one every man should have in their collection, is the classic Miami Cuban Link Chain. Made popular mainly by hip hop culture, you can’t go wrong with this style. One thing to consider, however, is that if you want a thicker bolder look, solid Cuban links tend to be heavy and chunky. In recent years, Monaco Chain™ has solved this problem by creating the strongest hollow chain on the market. Designed with patented technology, each of their chains can hold up to 52lbs on a tensile scale – almost as much as a solid chain. As they are incredibly durable but also hollow, you’re able to get a thicker chain for a fraction of the price. Check out the Monaco Chain™ Classic Plain Men’s Necklace, at Oro Monaco, their official online partner. On the website, you can customize your chain to perfectly fit your taste. Simply pick your chain, select your metal, customize your clasp and leave the rest to the team. Each chain comes in a special giftable box, so you don’t have to worry about that either! 

If you’re looking to add something more to a classic chain, you can always opt for the iced out diamond chain style popularized by rappers. Although diamond chains are attention-grabbing, they aren’t the most affordable or practical pieces. For an everyday look, we would suggest the Monaco Chain™ Diamond Cut Necklace. The Monaco Chain™ Diamond Cut Collection features 10K and 14K gold chains, hand-engraved to give the appearance and shine of a diamond-studded necklace. These chains are subtle enough to wear as an everyday necklace, or perfect for a full on night out look. 

In conclusion, there’s an endless variety of options when it comes to necklaces for men. From classic to trendy, there’s a necklace for anyone. Whichever style you like to wear, go ahead and wear it! There are no rules. Whatever you pick, just wear it with confidence!
