Gold Curb Chain Jewellery
Gold curb chains are a specific style of gold chain, which is defined by the link shape - as with all jewellery chains, the link style is the defining factor. With this style, the links are typically flatter in appearance and are often square or slightly oval in shape. This makes curb chains unique and easy to spot as they sit flush around the neckline.
Chain Size & Width
When it comes to finding the perfect size curb chain, you'll notice that certain styles are more slender than others, making these an ideal option for an everyday piece of jewellery that provides a more understated look. For instance, a chain which is 6mm in width will give off a more subtle style.
At the other end of the scale are heavy curb chains. These are typically available from around the 17mm mark to 28mm and beyond. This is a much bolder style and thus one which makes your curb chain much more noticeable.
Experimenting with different sizes is important to finding a curb chain type which suits you. If you want to go the extra mile, investing in a complete curb chain collection will ensure you have a chain to elevate your look for any upcoming occasion - whether it's a slender style to add a fresh finishing touch to your casual attire or a statement heavy curb chain to turn heads at your next formal event.

How To Style Gold Curb Chains
Whilst curb chains are a simple and versatile piece of jewellery, it’s important to discover a design that suits your personal style. The styling of a curb chain can also differ depending on whether the wearer is going for a masculine or feminine look. Whilst the designs are typically unisex, to find the perfect style, you may want to think more about the outfit you’re pairing the chain with.
Here are a few ideas…
Men’s Chains Styles
For men, a curb chain can be a great look for both formal and informal occasions. When heading into the office or attending a work meeting, A shorter, slender curb chain style can help to create a sleek and understated look when paired with a crisp white or light blue shirt with the top one or two buttons open. Yellow gold is a classic and when styling a professional look, this shirt and chain combo will go hand in hand perfectly.
For social occasions, it can be fun to get a little more creative with chains which are chunkier and longer, providing a bold, statement look. In this case, you can let your chain do the talking and simply pair it with a plain t-shirt. At Hatton Jewellers, we’re a fan of a medium-length chunky yellow gold curb chain paired with a muscle-fit white t-shirt.
Women’s Chains Styles
When it comes to elevating women's occasionwear, a gold curb chain can be the perfect accessory to bring a subtle touch of sophistication to any outfit. A medium-thickness curb chain with a short length can look great when paired with a contrasting blazer and neutral-coloured top. Experimenting with different colours of gold could help you unlock a new style. For example, rose gold chains are a little more unique and can also be an extremely elegant choice when it comes to accessorising evening attire.
When opting for a look which is more suited to social occasions, a plunge neckline dress can be the perfect way to put all the attention on your stunning curb chain. We’d recommend a short but chunky yellow or white gold curb chain to finish off the look. Adding layers to this style with other thinner chains is also a great way of making this look more dynamic.
